Kitty supermodel, media mogul, former professional athlete — Tabs wears many hats.

One might think that with his complete and total domination of so many categories, the public would tire of Tabs, but in fact we see the opposite effect.

His fans are always hungry for more (much like Tabs himself when it comes to gravy).

The other day he sat down with US Weekly (the celebrity cat edition) for a special exposé article. Here’s a preview of the piece if you don’t subscribe to the magazine, followed by Tabs’ latest media venture, part 1 of a new graphic novel titled Surely You Jest.

Hope you enjoy. :)

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Tabs

  1. As you know, Tabs likes to wear a lot of bling, even though he already has built-in bracelets and necklaces on his patterned tabby fur. But he’s particularly fond of Kate Spade and Tiffany for day-to-day wear, and for red carpet, Chanel and vintage estate jewelry.
  2. He was offered the part of Buttercup in the Hunger Games, but he turned it down due to a scheduling conflict.
  3. He has several Formula 1 racing championships under his belt.
  4. He owns a summer home on Lake Como in Italy next door to George Clooney.
  5. He was the best man at Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan’s wedding.
  6. He does all of his own stunts.
  7. He’s fluent in several languages, including Tagalog, Hawaiian Pidgin, French, Portuguese, Italian, Spanish and Mandarin.
  8. He’s hosted Saturday Night Live more than any other cat.
  9. He has a thing for fancy candles.
  10. He loves wheat bread.

And now, it’s comic time! Look for part 2′s thrilling conclusion next week… :)

So, what is the #MyGreatCat campaign?

“We want cat owners everywhere to not only recognize what makes their cats great but be empowered to share that,” says Purina Pro Plan Cat food brand manager Aaron Williams.

For each picture or video you share on your social media channels that includes the hashtag #MyGreatCat from now through August 31, Purina Pro Plan will donate one pound of cat food — up to 50,000 pounds — to hundreds of cat rescue groups nationwide through the Purina Pro Plan Rally to Rescue network.

That’s right! Every time you share a pic or video of your feline employer just being awesome in his/her own way, you’ll be feeding a hungry cat.

Philanthropy. Partnership. Perfection (alternate spelling: purr-fection).

Powerful P words, all.

Today, Makeup and Beauty Blog mascot and world-famous kitty supermodel Tabs the Cat is proud to announce a new partnership with Purina! — and they’ve sponsored his kitty modeling campaigns this week.

When Tabs found out about the new Purina Pro Plan #MyGreatCat social media campaign and how the brand has committed to donate up to 50,000 pounds of its delicious food to cat rescue groups, he said, “Where do I sign?”

Well…he actually said, “mrrow!” but I knew what he meant. :)

Even though Tabs has achieved fame and greatness despite his meager beginnings as a stray on the mean streets of Mill Valley, he remembers what it was like to be hungry.

Actually, he’s still pretty much hungry all the time, LOL! :)

Tabs for Purina Pro Plan

Who is Tabs the Cat?
About seven years ago I befriended a stray, flea-bitten tabby cat with a bad case of worms. I could see he’d fallen on hard times, but his profound knowledge of high fashion and department store cosmetics led me to believe that he was more than meets the eye. We became fast friends, and now he’s actually my boss (and a successful kitty model). -Karen

Dear friends, fans and foodies,

Yes, foodies. As you know, I have many opportunities to sample fine feline cuisine at notable five-star feline friendly restaurants around the world. It’s one of the perks of being a world-renowned kitty supermodel.

And as much as I love a purr-fectly prepared chef’s tasting menu, there’s really nothing quite like enjoying a good meal in the comfort of my home.

On those rare occasions when I do get a bit of downtime, I call on my in-house kitchen staff to prepare my meals. As you can tell by my physique, I love to eat; however, I am not one of those cats who will simply eat anything you put in front of him. I insist that my personal chef only fixes fare that excites my taste buds!

To that end, I typically stick to three-course meals.

I usually like to start with an appetizer — a few treats to warm up my palette — and lately I’ve been loving these Purina Pro Plan Savory Bites. I’ve had the chicken, salmon and the tuna, and all three are delish (but my favorite is the chicken).

Step Out This Spring in a Pair of Wedges

Published in: Fashion, Sponsored Post

This post is sponsored by Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse, and it’s all about spring wedges! For information about my posting policy, please see my Disclaimer.

After a blustery winter spent burrito’d in cat lady socks and knee-high boots, my feet are ready for warm weather. Woo-hoo, sandal season! Here we come!

Winter footwear is fun and all, but I’m partial to spring and summer because 1) I get to show off my pedicures (#priorities) and 2) I can finally wear wedges. :)

Yeah, I’m a bit of a shoe hoarder… Wedges, preferably platforms with a good cork heel (I’m only 5’1″, so I like the height), are some of my favorite shoes this time of year.

For high heels, they’re surprisingly comfy. Like, I know that I could spend a day walking around San Francisco in wedges, no problem, but I couldn’t imagine doing it in stilettos.

Plus, if/when it starts drizzling or a heavy fog rolls in (summers in SF can be COLD!) and I’m wearing cork wedges, they’re naturally waterproof.

In spring and summer, you’ll pretty much find me in a pair of wedges every single day. No matter what I have lined up, it’s not hard to find a pair that works with whatever outfit I’m wearing.

When I have a work meeting in the city, I’ll often don a colorful dress and cardigan, and slip a tan pair like these Franco Sarto Sherry wedges ($59.99) on my feet.

Being neutral, I don’t think they aren’t too flashy for a business meeting, but the detailing, in this case the crossed straps, dresses them up a little while giving them some personality.

On weekends, that’s when my fun wedges come out to play. I might put on that same colorful dress, but make a few little changes to the ensemble to take it from work to play.

Or Sunday brunch, which is one of my favorite things!


I’ll just swap out the cardigan for a vintage denim jacket, the bib necklace for a pair of dangly earrings, and the nude wedges for something spunkier, like these navy blue Yvonne wedges by Jellypop ($39.99).
