Published in: Just For Fun, Tabs, Video


That’s the magic number. How many years is that…? Four hundred Sundays with Tabs. I’m no mathematician, but I know that’s a lot of years.

Four hundred Sundays where Tabs has made us laugh and cry with joy, and 400 Sundays where he’s bossed us around in his own special kitty way.

I hope you enjoy this very special edition of Sundays with Tabs. 🙂 Here’s to 400 more.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addicts,

Karen, Tabs and Connor Claire

Dear friends and felines,

It’s time to pack up the cooler and the sunscreen, because we’re going to the beach!

Actually, you’re going to the beach. I’ll be going to my beach houses in Ibiza, Miami and Waikiki. Stop by if you’re staying in Kahala, South Beach or Cannes.

I can’t guarantee I’ll be relaxing, because the paparazzi follow me everywhere… Some famous cats pretend that they don’t like having their picture taken, but you know, I’m not gonna lie — I love it. It gives me a chance to show off my fit bod, which, by the way, I’ve been working on for the last month and a half.



I mean, you know I’m always ready to show off these curves, but I want to be extra ready to flaunt it by June. I was given this perfect physique for a reason, and it is my duty to share it with the world.

I’ve been training rigorously to get my tum, my bum and my tail beach ready, and because I’m a cutting edge kitty, I don’t go for old-school exercises. I’ve hired the most forward -thinking personal trainers in the business. One of them, this guy named Teddy, works with Stephen Curry.

Yes, the Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors. Actually, Stephen introduced me to him.

A Love Letter to My Cat (yes, you read that correctly)

Dear Tabs,

Hello, my sweet kitty friend. I know that even though we see each other every day (as we have for pretty much the past 10 years), things haven’t been the same lately, now that you’re a “big brother” to baby Connor Claire.


It probably seems like she’s always in my arms, or on my lap, or somehow otherwise up in the mix, and that when you try to snuggle with me (like the time she was breastfeeding and you tried to sneak onto my lap to make biscuits), it seems grossly unfair when I say, “No, Tabs, not now.”

I see you slinking away, sadly. I hear your tiny kitty sighs and meows.


Honestly, I can’t blame you. Things have changed a lot over the past two months, both for you and for me, more than they have in the previous nine years we’ve spent together. It’s been quite a shock to both of our systems.

But I wanted you to know that even though our familiar daily (and nightly) patterns have changed, you’re still my special tabby baby boy, and now I cherish the quiet moments we have together even more, when it’s just you and me again, like last night, when I woke up at 3 and saw you curled up next to me, sleeping soundly.


Or, right now as I’m typing this with you napping in the corner next to my chair, and with me at the keyboard tap-tap-tapping away. How many hours have we spent just like this, my sweet friend? Hundreds? Thousands? I know that soon you’ll wake up, hop up on my desk, and rub your cheeks against my face before draping your body across my left forearm as I continue to type. You’ll start to purr and stare out the window and occasionally blink contendedly.

Weekend salutations to all my frenemies, friends, fans and health fiends. Oh! — and yeah, happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there. I hope you’ve all been having a wonderful Sunday. Mine has been great so far. I’ve been hard at work all day long. To that, most people would probably say, “Well, shoot, Tabs, that sucks.” But not me. I’m a mover and a shaker, even on holidays, and I’m very excited about my latest business venture, a juice bar dedicated to health conscious cats.

Oh, sure, Marin County’s got plenty of juice bars. I’ve walked by several that charge a staggering $15 per juice, but we’re gonna undercut all of them by serving premium organic, locally sourced ingredients (i.e. grown on my back deck) and affordable juices that are the freshest imaginable.

I should know; I oversee all operations from top to bottom. Since the business is just getting started, my employees worked today as well.




To convey my authority, I wore my business casual outfit — you know, to show em who’s boss, while at the same time projecting an air of approachability. I’m a very paws-on employer with all of my business ventures. I’m not the type of cat who just sits behind a desk.

My dearest fans and felines,

They say April showers bring May flowers, and ain’t that the truth. I’ve been enjoying the blooms in my neighborhood, along with the tall grasses and the leaves on the trees.

I hope that you were able to spend some time outside this weekend. I spent a good amount of time enjoying the great outdoors, trying to perfect my kitty skulking abilities; however, due to my assistant’s allergies and her constant sneezing, I haven’t been able to sneak up on anything.

It’s so hard to find good help these days.
