Sundays with Tabs

Oh, sweet relief. Finally, a weekend to myself — except for Greg, my favorite petsitter. He lets me have all the gravy I can handle…and I can handle a lot of gravy.

My assistants are out of town visiting kin up north, so I spent a relaxing weekend lounging, watching birds and consuming large quantities of food.

I needed this…

The humans will be home soon, so I’m just trying to enjoy these last few hours with Greg and his magical hands (he gives the best deep-tissue kitty massages).

Out of curiosity, have you read the new issue of Vogue Cat? Did you happen to notice the dashing superkitty model on page 23? Yup, ’tis I. Just one of my many recent kitty modeling jobs. Here are pics of the others.

Enjoy.

I’m sure you will. :)

XOXO,

Tabs

It sucks when you don’t get any downtime.

Forty-five minutes after his paw stepped off the catwalk at New York Fashion Week last Thursday, Tabs was on a flight from JFK bound for Kansas.

It’s because I booked him for back-to-back kitty modeling jobs immediately after New York, even though I didn’t think it was a good idea at all. I thought he’d need some rest after walking in so many shows, but he insisted, and whatever tabby wants, tabby gets.

The Kansas job was an historic first for us — an on-location shoot for a brand new line of eyeshadow duos made by Tabs. So he was both the model and the client.

It worked out great. They did the shoot in a corn field and hired a local turkey actor. I couldn’t believe they actually found a turkey who could model, but Tabs said the bird had skills…

And then right after the Kansas shoot, Tabs took the redeye to Los Angeles, where he had a couple of meetings and worked on four more kitty modeling jobs.

He only got back from L.A. this morning, and now he’s upstairs in the sink taking a nap.

If you’re interested, here are the kitty modeling campaigns Tabs worked on… :)

Tabs for the new Fashionably Late Liner/Mascara Duo

Internationally acclaimed kitty supermodel, media mogul and feline style icon Tabs the cat burst onto the kitty modeling scene in 2007 with a fur-bulous feature spread in the pages of Makeup and Beauty Blog. Since then, Tabs has gone on to become the one-and-only true, plus-size kitty supermodel in the biz. Others imitate, but Tabs reigns supreme. His massive, incomparable portfolio of more than 700 kitty modeling jobs is only overshadowed by his girth. Tabs

As you know, it’s New York Fashion Week, so Tabs has been extra busy.

And extra fussy.

Before the shows this morning, we went to his favorite burrito joint — a hidden hole in the wall in Brooklyn that only the most fashionable foodies know about. Honestly, I can’t even share the name or address with you because it’s that secret (Tabs is afraid it’ll get out on Yelp, and then pretty soon the place would be swamped).

So, at the place, Tabs ordered a kitty burrito and actually snapped at the burrito girl. “Mrow!” I know guacamole is extra! Then he picked up his burrito with his mouth and stormed out.

Purr usual, I had to apologize for his rude behavior; I paid the bill and included a generous tip.

Yup, that’s my job — cleaning up after that cat’s messes.

The stress of Fashion Week is really getting to him… In fact, yesterday, as I was working out to a Jillian Michaels DVD in my hotel room, Tabs barged in and started complaining about my form!

Apparently, he’s studying to become a personal trainer now, as if all of his other endeavors weren’t enough. It may have something to do with him being on the new cat version of The Biggest Loser.

As a host, not a contestant.

I honestly don’t know where that cat gets the energy for so many projects. I mean, just look at his kitty modeling jobs from this week alone… :)

Sundays with Tabs the Cat: Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot

Dear Tabby is written by Tabs the Cat, commonly regarded as “the world’s first plus-size kitty supermodel.” Founded in mid 2012, it has quickly become the most widely syndicated cat advice column on earth — known for its fresh, feline perspective on lifestyle, fashion and style issues affecting cats and humans.

A career cat dealing with retirement

Feline retirement

DEAR TABBY: I’m finding it difficult adjusting to retirement. In my professional life, I worked at Purina as a gravy tester. I gave that company the best 11 years of my life, and it was a great gig. I felt important. Felt like I mattered.

Now, I have nothing but time on my paws, but I have no idea what to do with myself. Maybe I had unrealistic expectations, but everything I try to do — napping, chasing moths, even playing with grocery bags and cardboard — seems frivolous by comparison to the vital work I did at Purina.

Honestly, retirement hasn’t been all it’s cracked up to be. Now I’m wondering if I should perhaps go back to work, or if I should try harder to enjoy my golden years. What do you think, Tabby?

Discontented in Denton

Kitty model retirement

Retirement isn’t for everyone.

DEAR DISCONTENTED: I think it boils down to this: some cats are built for retirement, and some cats aren’t.

It’s funny you bring up retirement because I’ve been thinking about it lately. I mean, I’m not quite there yet, but I can’t lie. It would be nice to have the extra time. I could finally finish exploring the hill outside, inventory my toy collection, maybe even build that better mousetrap.

But I know myself. A life of pure leisure wouldn’t be enough for me, and it sounds like you’re the same way.

After you’ve done important work in your life, it’s hard to go back to being a stay-at-home cat. I think a lot of professionals are faced with that.

The truth is, if you don’t want to retire, don’t. You’re a cat. Exercise your independence.

With your experience, you could be a mentor to younger cats, and I say this somewhat selfishly, but I think the world needs your refined gravy palette.

Ambitious cat with branding question

Ambitious cat

DEAR TABBY: I hope this doesn’t come across as bragging, but my star has begun to rise in the kitty modeling world. Unfortunately, I’m currently faced with a conundrum. I was recently asked to do an infomercial for Fur-Active (“Does your fur look patchy and dull? Try new Fur-Active!”).

The problem is, I’m not sure if I should do it. I’m worried that it could cheapen my brand. What do you think, Tabby? I ask because of your experience as a kitty supermodel, business mogul and branding expert.

Upwardly Mobile in Mobile

Kitty model branding advice

Take every job you can get your paws on.

DEAR UPWARDLY MOBILE: You want my advice?

Take the job.

Take every job. Never stop working. Build a reputation as a hard-working feline professional. That’s how you’ll define your brand.

When I first started kitty modeling, I took every job, no matter how small. The only jobs I refused were ones I had ethical problems with (The Anti-Dog Coalition: Cats Against Canine Camaraderie).

Later, once you’ve fur-mly [sic] established yourself as a force to be reckoned with in the kitty modeling industry, you can be more picky.
