Dear Diary,

It has come to my attention that my assistant photobombed one of my selfies and then shared it on Instagram.

While I do look quite dashing in the picture, this is a gross violation of her employment contract, and I might have to write her up… We’ll see how she does with my dinner tonight. If it meets with my satisfaction, I may just let her off with a verbal warning.

Oh! This weekend I continued updating my portfolio. I found some old kitty modeling pics on a thumb drive. What do you think of this glamour shot of me gazing up at a bejeweled crown?


Don’t I look majestic and regal?

Or how about this more casual picture of me and my assistant? She appears to be understandably enthusiastic about appearing in a photo with me.


I also came across a series of instructional kitty modeling memes I did with Marmalade, my professional nemesis.


I remember that shoot… Marmalade was so annoying! I really wanted to swat his face, but that wouldn’t have been professional.

And then some of these are pics I took myself using my tripod and a timer.

Dear Diary,

I thought this would be a good weekend to update my portfolio. I’ve been wanting to freshen it up with some new glamour shots, you know, just to show that I’ve still got it and can still rock a cutting-edge kitty modeling campaign.




I’m very proud of my new dreamy shots, which I did as part of a personal photography project to demonstrate my range.

A lot of companies are going that more abstract route these days. A lot of it is what they call CGI, which stands for computer-generated imagery.

Yeah, it’s just tech talk. Whatever, I’m down with that.

My darlings,

A very happy Easter to you. May your tum be filled with gravy, your basket be filled with treats and your heart be filled with love.

Today is a special day for reflection, renewal and hope, and my hope for you is that you have a joyous and prosperous spring.

The start of spring is a purr-fect time to reflect on the year so far and to look ahead. What has gone well for me? What could have gone better? Have I been as professionally dominating in my kitty modeling exploits as I need to be to remain on top of the kitty modeling cat tower, or is there room for improvement?

Here are five things you can do now to start your spring on the right paw.

1. Treat yourself to a spa day


I am a firm believer in treating yourself to a day of pampering at least once purr quarter.

2. Volunteer for a good cause


It’s important to give back, and this year I’ll be volunteering my time and graciously giving my impecable fashion and beauty advice to shoppers as a personal stylist at Nordstrom. Call now for reservations.

3. Get something for someone special in your life


After a rocky start, the new employee and I are getting along swimmingly. She’s a sweetheart, although her petting technique still leaves a lot to be desired.

As a token of my appreciation, I got her this yellow Easter dress.

My darlings,

One of the questions I’m constantly asked while on location posing for kitty modeling campaigns is, “Tabs, how can I be as fabulous as you are?”

First of all, it is possible. I know that I make it seem easy sometimes, but I wasn’t always this fabulous. It took a lot of hard work and purr-severance, and now I’d like to share the lessons I’ve learned with you.

1. Cultivate a network of fabulous friends (and frenemies)

One of the best ways to learn how to be more fabulous is to spend time with other fabulous friends. Watch how they handle professional and personal situations. When do they purr? When do they meow? How do they strut and pose? Observe their attitude and mannerisms, and take every opportunity to network and meet even more fabulous friends. Pretty soon, as some of their fabulousness rubs off on you, you’ll start acting more fabulously too.

While you’re at it, it’s also important to cultivate a few frenemies as well, because you know what they say about keeping your friends close and your enemies closer. That, and there’s also no such thing as bad press when it comes to being fabulous.

2. Hire a social media strategist

Social media is a key component of brand management these days, but in striving to become a world class kitty supermodel, your time will be limited, so I suggest hiring a professional to help you handle the day-to-day upkeep of your many social media channels, someone who can post daily glamour pictures of you and carry around your iPhone. This way, you’ll have more time to connect with your fans.

3. Shop where other fabulous cats aren’t shopping

Because true fabulousness is about paving your own way, be a trendsetter, instead of a trend follower.

For instance, if all of your friend cats are shopping at Chanel this season, buck the trend and shop at Prada or Dior. Forge your own path, and be your own cat.

Dear Diary,

Jiminy Cricket, Diary, I’m exhausted! I’m not kidding. The new hire has been putting in a ton of overtime, and it’s digging into my precious nap time. She’s always at the office. I mean, I like working the night shift, but she really likes working the night shift.

I’ve tried to tell her to clock out and go home, but we’re having communication issues. It’s like we’re speaking different languages.

Even when I can sneak away for a nap, I can’t sleep long because there’s just so much noise in the office.

I thought a new mattress would help, but it really hasn’t…


I’ve also tried warm milk.


And I read once that a good way to get sleepy for bed is to read something boring, so I tried that, but now all I want to do is upgrade my tabby command center. I’m thinking about adding a rooftop catnip garden…
