My Darlings,

There’s an old saying in the plus-size kitty modeling world: “Go big or go home,” and I take that phrase to heart when it comes to hosting parties. I want my guests to be talking about them for years to come.

Being a famous feline supermodel, I’ve hosted many Halloween shindigs in my time, and I have almost a decade of party-planning experience. In that vein, here are the four essential components of a successful feline Halloween party.

1. Invitations


First things first — the invitations. In the digital age, e-vites and group invites via Facebook are acceptable; however, I’m a little old fashioned. I prefer paper invitations. Do what I do, and ask your assistant to design you a custom invite.

Don’t forget to include all of the pertinent details, like date and time, location, how to RSVP and, most importantly, the dress code.

2. Food

As you can tell by my husky girth, food is EXTREMELY important to me. Catering is always an option, of course, but if you are lucky enough to have an in-house chef/gravy preparer (I do), spend some time with them brainstorming fun Halloween-themed beverages, hors d’oeuvres and desserts.

I start scouring gourmet cat culinary magazines months beforehand, and this is what I’ll be serving this year. Feel free to riff on any of these ideas.

What’s the secret to success? According to Tabs the cat, world-renowned plus-size kitty supermodel, diva extraordinaire and full-time feline beauty blogger, it involves three things in LARGE amounts: 1) gravy, 2) lovies and 3) outside.

And Tabs wanted to discuss them all in depth in today’s insightful, exciting video installment of Sundays with Tabs. :)

May your fur be fluffy, and your cat liner flicks be fabulous.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addicts,

Karen and Tabs

It’s that time of year again! Preparations are in full swing for the annual Tabs the Cat Halloween Kitty Costume Ball, a charity event to benefit Husky House Cats International, an organization dedicated to placing extra large, lovable kitties with talented pet assistants.

This afternoon Tabs did his preliminary costume fittings, and he’s having a hard time deciding between Octo-kitty ($7.49) and Mermaid Tabs ($7.50). Right now he’s leaning toward Octo-kitty, but I’m partial to Mermaid Tabs… I just think the green goes better with his eyes.

What do you think?

If you and/or your cat work in the kitty modeling industry, keep your eyes peeled for your invite to the ball. We’ll be sending them out this week. :)

The Tabs Diaries

Dear Diary,

I feel the weight of the world on my little kitty shoulders… Actually, big kitty shoulders. Who am I kidding? I’m almost 20 pounds of brute force husk.

There’s been talk of a new employee coming with a start date of March 2016, and while I can always use a third assistant (there’s so much to be done!), I’m starting to get a bit worried. First of all, the new girl seems to be demanding a lot of attention from both my first and second assistants. I haven’t met her yet, but she’s always being discussed. The current team is constantly talking to her and cooing in that voice that’s usually reserved for me.

I’m also alarmed at the rate at which the new employee is accumulating things, and you know what they say: a cat’s house is his home. I’m starting to feel like the new girl is already taking over. The evidence? This pink — I don’t know what it is. An owl? Some kind of toy to scratch? I tried playing with it once, and my female assistant said, “No, Tabs, no!” in a tone I did not appreciate.

From what I can discern, it’s an object on which you turn a key, and it makes noises of which I am not fond.

On the positive side, because I always try to have a sunny disposition, my bed situation has gotten much better over the past month or so. My female assistant has been sleeping with this alternative pillow setup, which she refers to as “the pregnancy doughnut.” I prefer that she call it “the kitty burrito.” Basically, it’s just four pillows set up in a manner that perfectly holds my body when I’m lounging on my bed. There’s something that just feels right about it, as if I’m being transported back to my kitty mom’s womb. I could sleep there all day long, and in fact, I have.

TABS: Hey, Chance, what’s up?
CHANCE: Oh, hey, Tabs. How’s it going?


TABS: Good, good… Just finishing my workout. Hey, did you hear about Dillon?
CHANCE: No. What happened to Dillon?
TABS: He got the new Prada campaign.
TABS: Seriously.
CHANCE: Fo’ reals??


TABS: Fo’ reals. I just heard it from Tuxie. We were training together. He’s stretching right over there…


TABS: Yo, Tuxie! Chance doesn’t believe that Dillon got the Prada campaign.


TUXIE: I know, right!? I couldn’t believe it either, but my agent told me yesterday at lunch. He said that it was down to Dillon and Tabs, but they went with Dillon because they wanted a fresh face, whatever that means.
