Patience is not now, nor has it ever been, one of Tabs’ virtues. Now that he’s a senior tabby, when he wants to go outside he practically kitty hugs my legs and “tug boats” me all the way to the door.

It usually starts with him staring at me like this for a while…

Then he’ll stand in front of the sliding glass door to the deck or the front door (sometimes carrying his cat harness in his mouth!) and meow.

And meow.

And meow.

Until I eventually take him outside.

I don’t know if it’s just my imagination, but lately it seems like he’s been more reflective and thoughtful…

I wonder what he’d write about if he really worked on his memoirs. I bet he’d write a lot about our old apartment in Mill Valley. That’s when he was an outdoor tabby and spent adventurous nights outside.

I remember so many things from that time, like the night of the big storm… It was pouring rain and the wind was gusting. The news said it was hurricane-caliber.

This was when we knew Tabs from the neighborhood, but he wasn’t officially our cat yet. He would come over sometimes and hang out, and I’d give him chin scritches and tuna, but then he’d meow to go back outside.

On the night of that bad storm, the power went out, and El Hub and I were in our apartment worrying.

The storm just kept getting worse. We tried to go to bed, but the windows were shaking from the wind, and it was too scary and noisy. At one point, El Hub said, “I’m gonna go look for Tabs!” And he jumped up and went outside in the storm.

“Tabs!” I heard him calling over and over. “Tabs! Tabs!” as he walked around the apartment building with a flashlight in the rain.

And then he heard a scared meow.

Tabs had crawled into a tree stump on the side of the building, but he was still soaked, cold and meowing. El Hub said that Tabs’ eyes lit up when he saw him, and he hopped out of the trunk and ran with him all the way to our front door.

That’s just one of many stories from that time. I bet Tabs would spend a lot of pages talking about those days in his memoirs…

This cat doesn't do oranges

Tabs seriously does not care at all about citrus.

Before I explain, he does, however, care a great deal about whatever goes on outside, and he surveils the neighborhood like the world’s greatest security guard from his window perch.

But we planted a new dwarf orange tree outside this week, and I expected Tabs to be hella interested in it when we went outside today for our walk, but he couldn’t have cared less.

For the longest time, Tabs only had one girl who was madly in love with him.

(Me, obviously.)

But now he has two, and I’m pretty sure he’s thrilled about it.

I don’t know… It’s kind of hard to tell sometimes.

The other day we — Connor, Tabs and I — were just hanging out in the living room, and he walked up to her and let her pet him. Of course, this was done with supervision and lots of “When we pet Tabs, we have to do it gently” kind of talk.

Then, after some pets and some gentle rubs from Connor, Tabs walked up to her and headbutted her face.

It was so cute! My heart felt like it was going to melt in my chest like a piece of chocolate.

There’s nothing like a little morning meditation to clear the kitty cobwebs and focus your powers of feline fabulousness on kitty modeling domination.

Tabs wanted to go for his walk at the crack of dawn this morning before the neighborhood hustles and bustles so that he could channel his chi and practice his kitty yoga poses…

His favorite time to walk is early, early, early in the morning, sometimes even before dawn when it’s still a little dark, because it’s quieter and sometimes there are still interesting varmints like raccoons skulking about.

Today it was already light, but it was still early and quiet.

Tabs loves 💖 the ladies…

And the ladybugs. 🐞

They’re all over the place right now because we got some from a lawn and garden store to go to town on the aphids in the official Tabs the Cat Industries LLC employee deck garden, and they’re doing a GREAT job, but Tabs doesn’t exactly know what to think of them…

He gets up really close to check ’em out, and then watches them do their work, but he leaves them be. He mostly just watches…

Even when he has lunch at the corporate salad bar, he nibbles the grass all around where the ladybugs are, but he lets them have their space.

I think it’s because he can tell that they’re industrious, and he has mad respect for hard work. 🙂
