Who else but an eccentric old neighbour like Charles Chazen (Burgess Meredith) would have a birthday party for his black and white cat?
Having moved into a Brooklyn Heights apartment, fashion model Alison Parker (Cristina Raines) shouldn't be too surprised to see Jezebel eating a tasty parakeet. It's just what cats do.
You'll notice that the later Jezebel isn't the same black and white cat. Some would call it a continuity error but maybe it's witchcraft.
