Tabs is very unhappy with Ryan Gosling this year. A lot of people don’t know this, but Tabs was supposed to play the lead in La La Land, but they gave the role to Ryan. Tabs is pretty sure it was because Ryan showed an aptitude for piano and, lacking opposable thumbs, Tabs didn’t.

So tonight’s the big night! Oscar night.

While Tabs didn’t have the lead, he did still have a part in La La Land. He played Dancing Cat#3 in one of the big routines…

Tabs always looks forward to Oscar night. As you know, he has 17 Academy Awards (more than any other cat actor), but he’s only up for one award this year. He was nominated for Best Cat Actor for his emotional portrayal of a kitten who falls asleep on a milk truck and wakes to find himself in a totally different neighborhood.

There’s some confusion out there because it’s also called Lion and stars many of the same people as the other Lion starring Dev Patel, which is also up for an Academy Award.

Anyway, the one with Tabs is the one we’re rooting for. 🙂

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addicts,

Karen and Tabs

Not even wet paws could keep Inspector Tabby from doing his rounds this morning. He thoroughly inspected every inch of the circle looking for perpetrators and infiltrators, neither of which he found.

He did detect something skulking around one of the houses nearby…

I don’t know what it was, but he perked up, pointed and hissed to show it who was boss.

He checked every nook and cranny this time, too. It was pretty early, like about 6:30, so the birds were chirping like cray, but none of the humans were out.

Tabs hopped up on the bed this morning shortly after dawn, as he usually does, mugging for lurvies. He has this very specific routine where he first walks around the top of the bed behind the pillows, then goes down between me and El Hub, and then from there he either attempts to place a possessive paw on top of my chest or El Hub’s. Then he tries to climb up on top of one of us for whisker and cheek scratches.

It rained every day this week, a lot, so Tabs didn’t get to go outside like he usually does, and I think he was starting to get depressed about it. He would climb up onto his window ledge and stare at the rain outside. Then he’d look back at me with the saddest tabby eyes. 🙁

But it was really pouring! There was no way he would have wanted to be out there in that rain anyway.

We’ve tried it before. We’ve gone outside when it was raining, but as soon as one of his delicate paws touched the wet ground, he started mewling like he was saying, “Why? Why is this happening? Why!?”

When I saw that it wasn’t raining this morning, I quickly grabbed his harness, and we went for a walk outside.

Because of the rain, the hills are green and lush right now, and everything’s growing.

We inspected the entire perimeter but didn’t spot any intruders, so then it was time for brunch. Tabs had the green salad, of course.

It’s almost time for the Super Bowl! — and the Puppy and Kitten Bowls, of course.

Tabs flew out to Houston early yesterday morning because he’s one of the officials in the Kitten Bowl this year.

Are you ready for the Kitten Bowl?

Let’s hope the officiating is good…

Yeah, they needed someone who played the game and understands how to work in front of a camera. Yup, he still gets jobs like that because of his career with the Mill Valley Wildcats.

Other than officiating the big game today, Tabs has been working a lot on his spiritual and mental well being this week. He’s been feeling a lot of pressure lately, getting older in the kitty modeling world.

I mean, it’s not easy staying at the top as long as he has.

Sure, it takes dedication and hard work, but it also takes a strong will and a healthy mind.

That’s where downtime and meditation come into play…

My dearest loves of my life,

Spring is around the corner, and as I sit here atop my tower, I’m thinking about the new couch my assistant plans to purchase.

Mmm… I can’t wait. I’m already dreaming about digging my claws into its untouched fabric, leaving my scent on the pillows and luxuriating upon every cushion.

I wonder if the couch will be classified as “forbidden.” I’m hoping that it will be because that just makes my defiance all the sweeter.

I’ve also heard whispers of the carpet being replaced on the stairs… We’ll see about that. For now, the stairs remain my personal playground and the primary location where I sharpen my claws. I’ve consulted my attorneys about this, and I’m waiting for a callback as to whether I will need to pursue legal recourse.
