Tabs the Cat, Kitty Supermodel

Tonight, on a very special 300th installment of Sundays With Tabs, Karen of Makeup and Beauty Blog (and PawsTV) sits down with the cat kahuna himself, world famous kitty supermodel Tabs, to discuss the controversy surrounding his new television show (Game of Cat Thrones), his feud with Choupette, his love life (is Snowball the one?), his legacy and his future plans.

KAREN: First of all, Tabs, let me just say that I’m a huuuuge fan of your work, and that’s not just because you’re my employer. Thank you so much for agreeing to do this interview. I know you’re super busy.

So tell me — what’s new with you? How are things going in the world of Tabs?

TABS: Good, good. Well, as you know, I’ve been aggressively transitioning from the catwalk to television and movies this year.

KAREN: Right! This season of Game of Cat Thrones has been off the chain. My husband and I are obsessed. We spent four hours today talking about — oh, I don’t want to reveal any spoilers.

TABS: You wouldn’t want to do that. Fans are crazy about the show, especially for my character, Tabby Baratheon, the First of His Name.

Tabs the Cat, Kitty Supermodel

KAREN: Ooh! I love the cat politics and intrigue. Was it hard for you to get into the role?

TABS: No, not really. I drew a lot from my personal life. There’s lots of drama and politicking within the high-stakes world of kitty modeling, so…

Tabs the Cat, Kitty SupermodelKAREN: Speaking of drama, what’s going on with you and Chaupette? I hear rumors… Care to set the record straight?

TABS: Well, I respect Chaupette Lagerfeld and have a great relationship with Karl and The House of Chanel, but we’re just completely different cats.

Some cats have to claw their way to the top, while others are perfectly comfortable riding on someone else’s coattails. Let’s just leave it at that.

KAREN: Alright, but people want to know. Did you steal the role from her?

TABS: No, I just think the better cat got the job.

KAREN:Fair enough. New topic now — do you think your previous life as a stray kitten on the mean streets of Mill Valley prepared you for the cat-eat-cat world of kitty modeling?

TABS: Definitely. I didn’t have a famous last name — or actually any last name for that matter. I built my empire one kitty scratch at a time.

KAREN: Your empire. What about legacy? Is that also important to you at this stage in your life?

Tabs the Cat, Kitty SupermodelTABS: Sure. I think all driven cats want to look back on their lives and say, “I made a difference in this world.” I hope to inspire young kittens and older cats — anybody who wants to chase their dreams. I want them to know that they have the power to make a positive impact on the world, whether it be through kitty modeling or academia or whatever path they choose.

KAREN: Do you feel you’ve made a difference?

TABS: I’d like to think so. You see more plus-size cats on the runway now, so that’s one thing that has come out of my work, but I’m also very proud of my foundation, Furr-ever Homes, which finds stray cats and kittens rewarding work environments with qualified pet assistants.

KAREN: It sounds like philanthropy is important to you. Do you see yourself retiring and focussing on that any time soon?

TABS: The thought has crossed my mind, but I’m not quite there yet. There are still things I’d like to accomplish in the worlds of kitty modeling and entertainment.

KAREN: Oh, really? Like what? Any hints into your future plans?

TABS: Let’s just say that I may have to expand my staff of professional pet assistants soon. Things are about to get busy at Tabs the Cat Industries LLC.

KAREN: Ooh, mysterious… Come on, just one little hint?

TABS: I can’t officially say anything yet because my attorneys would have a fit, but I can say that cats all over the world will be looking a lot more stylish soon.

An Interview with Tabs the Cat, Kitty SupermodelKAREN: Interesting. OK, how about your love life, Tabs? Seeing anyone special these days? **cough** Snowball? **cough**

TABS: Snowball and I are great friends. I have a lot of respect for her and enjoy her company very much.

KAREN: You were photographed by the French paparazzi on your yacht in the Riviera with her. She must be a really good friend.

TABS: She is.

KAREN: Anything else? Are you ever gonna put a ring on that?

TABS: Next topic please.

KAREN: Well, that’s all the time we have today. Thank you again for doing this, Tabs. It’s been a real pleasure. I’ll see you back at the office. :)

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

Kitty Supermodel Tabs the Cat

I hope you enjoyed this installment of The Tabby Cat Chronicles, a Tabs the Cat comic. :)

In other news…someone is celebrating his/her birthday a day early.

I’ll give you one guess (and there are two correct answers).

OK, it’s me and Tabs. He wanted the condo to himself today, so basically he kicked me out.

I’m not cranky about it, though, because he sent me to Napa, and there are worse places in the world to spend your birthday and birthday eve.

I’m not sure what he has planned, but before I left the house he had me send out 500 e-mail invitations and a mass text with the following, “Party is on 2nite at my place, b there.”

I don’t plan to do much posting tomorrow, but I’ll be around, doin’ my thang. Maybe I’ll see you here or on Twitter or Instagram.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for keeping me and Tabs company all these years. I started in early 2007. Wow, it’s been a while…

There’s nothing profound or fascinating about blogging. It’s just me on the other end of a keyboard in a messy, still almost unfurnished (after three years!) condo with a husky but extremely amiable tabby cat and a not-so-subtle addiction to makeup. Pretty much same as it ever was.

I hope that I brighten your days sometimes as much as you brighten mine. :)

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

5 Cat-Safe Plants for Your Garden

Gardening can be a very effective team-building exercise for feline-run small businesses. Here at Makeup and Beauty Blog, a subsidiary of Tabs the Cat Industries LLC, all employees are required to spend at least 15 minutes per day fraternizing outside with the feline management in the employee lounge/deck garden.

Above is a copy of a brochure that outlines some of the plants we have. :)

The policy was instituted two years ago, and at that time the garden was small — mostly catnip and zinnia flowers in large planters — but it has steadily expanded. Today there are some plants for the company cats AND some plants for their human assistants. It’s one of my favorite things about working here.

Tabs is such a demanding kitty employer that I probably would have lost my sh*t by now and quit if it hadn’t been for our quality bonding time in the garden, where we can both just let our hair down and have fun.

Look into my eyes...

Tabs.

This is the title I have chosen to give this work of art. (I also considered “Kitty Supermodel Extraordinaire” and “Most Outstanding Cat.”)

I felt it was time for me to give something back to the cat lady community, so I created this extra large computer wallpaper of myself, myself.

I was staring into a mirror one day getting into character before a big runway show when it hit me — damn, I’m a gorgeous tabby. It would be selfish of me not to share these good looks with the world.

I made one version with a calendar, and one without. I hope you like.

Love always,
Tabs

MAC Alluring Aquatic Collection Wallpaper Starring Tabs the Cat

There are cats that loathe water, and there are cats that love it. Tabs is a bit of both. His great, great, great, great — well, it was a great number of greats ago — grandmommy cat (which reminds me, happy Mother’s Day!) was a Bengal tiger, and she loved the water. Loved swimming in it, hunting near it and leaping into it from riverbanks.

Sometimes Tabs has his own water kitty moments, like right now, with the new MAC Alluring Aquatic collection.

The release pops up on maccosmetics.com this week (May 15), and Tabs is pretty excited about it. He even commissioned a special commemorative desktop wallpaper. :)

He hopes you download one of them (there are different sizes, depending on your screen), and set it as your computer wallpaper, so that you may gaze upon his — ahem! — robust body of work.
