Script Running Without Being Called

I have two variables that I use for two switches in the header of my web page.  The problem is, when I run the script the alerts come up for both switches, the alerts are both correct but the second one should not run until it's called, which is on the onChange property of a dropdown...

<select name="Doggie" id="Doggie" onChange='javascript: getKitty();'>

Open in new window


The script that sets the var...
$(document).ready(function() {
	$("input:image").click(function(evt) {
	evt.preventDefault();
	var n = setSearch( $(this).val() )
	var m = getKitty( $(this).val() );})
	})

Open in new window


and the Script thats running when not called!
function getKitty(m)
{
	switch(m)
	{
		case "Place":
		alert("Place On Miss Kitty");
		break;
		case "Cuisine":
		alert("Cuisine On Miss Kitty");
		break;
}
}

replace :
<select name="Doggie" id="Doggie" onChange='javascript: getKitty();'>
by :
<select name="Doggie" id="Doggie">

and use :
$(document).ready(function() {
	$("input:image").click(function(evt) {
  	    evt.preventDefault();
	    var n = setSearch( $(this).val() )
	    var m = getKitty( $(this).val() );
        })
        $("#Doggie").change(function() { getKitty(m); })
})
