My darlings,

Ever since I won my first Oscar, Best Lead Feline in a Meow-tion Picture, for my performance in The Cat’s Speech, the tabloids have been saying that I’ve quit high fashion kitty modeling.

Well, I’m here to set the record straight. I am still, and always will be, first and foremost, a kitty supermodel.

As a matter of fact, just this weekend I shot several jewelry campaigns that will be running in the glossies. Here’s a sneak peek at what you’ll be seeing over the next few months in the pages of Feline Vogue.

Dear Tabby

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

Shelter cat fears showing favoritism at the office

Cat shows office favoritism

DEAR TABBY: I can’t believe I’m actually writing THE Tabs the cat! — or rather, Tabby. You’re a big celebrity where I work. When I told my cat coworkers that I was writing you, they said I was crazy. They all said that you would never respond, but I’m keeping my paws crossed.

Tabby, my name is Sasha, and I’m the director of cat career placement at a local cat charm school and management training facility here in Gainesville (officially, the organization is called the Gainesville ASPCA). It’s my job to help our graduates, who range in age from three-month-old kittens to 18-year-old senior cats looking for a career change, find rewarding careers, and to place them with talented pet assistants in the area.

I love my job, but I see a lot of feline faces come and go, and sometimes that gets me a little sad… I know I’m performing a valuable service in the community, but sometimes I do wish I had an easier job.

Oops! — got a little sidetracked there for a moment.

I wanted to ask you about working with professional pet assistants. I work with about a dozen of them here. We maintain a very large staff, but I’ve grown particularly attached to one of them. Her name is Kelly, and I think she’s just fantastic. She understands my quirks and how I like to take my breakfast at a certain time, keeps the office tidy, and even massages my shoulders when I’m tense.

But as I’ve said, she’s not my only employee. She’s just my favorite.

I would really like to do something special for her — just something small to recognize her exemplary job performance — but I don’t know what’s appropriate. I don’t want to be seen as showing favoritism at the office.

Always recognize exceptional performance

DEAR SASHA: What a wonderful job you do! I greatly admire career counselors and teachers like you because you’re shaping the future of the entire cat community. Who knows? One of your graduates could go on to become the next Morris, so bravo to you.

Now, about your question… First of all, I actually think it’s perfectly acceptable to show favoritism at the office. In fact, I do it all the time. I employ two full-time executive assistants and an army of part-time personal chefs, nutritionists and massage therapists — not to mention a driver — and I favor whichever one is doing the best job at any given time.

I do this because 1) we’re cats, and we’re allowed to be fickle, and 2) I feel that favoritism of this sort creates a competitive work environment, and competition breeds excellence. I think you’ll find that by rewarding one of your assistants, many of the others will try harder.

Give it a shot. As for appropriate forms of recognition, kitty hugs are nice.

Good gift for a mommy cat

Cat concierge

DEAR TABBY: I think mine is kind of an interesting situation… See, I work literally next door to my mommy cat.

Yeah! It’s kind of weird. I’m the concierge at an apartment building, and my mommy cat works in the building next door to me as a kitty model. Long story short, I was raised there and home-schooled, and then after graduating, I took a job here because it was right next door. Basically, I was looking for my first job and bumped into the head assistant on the sidewalk one day. We had lunch — he prepared tuna — and then he offered me the job.

So now I see my mommy cat every once in a while. We’re both very busy with our careers, though, so it’s not an everyday thing, but we keep in touch.

I had to work today on Mother’s Day, so we couldn’t get together, but we made a date for next week.

I’d like to get her a little something when I see her. Tabby, what’s a good gift for a kitty model?

Respectfully yours,

kittenhood bonds

Fish oil is the secret to the silkiest fur

DEAR BRADY: Hmm… Well, what kind of modeling does she do? If it’s mainly print, I suggest canned tuna. The fish oil is great for your fur. But if she does runway or TV, then some catnip, or perhaps a crinkly ball, would be nice.

Also, you can never go wrong with a mouse.

The Tabs Diaries: Uncensored

Dear Diary,

Wow, it’s been a while! I’ve missed you so much, diary. Things have been craaay on this end. I’ve still been writing — don’t you worry about that — but admittedly not enough here.

I’ll explain in a bit, but first… Gosh, where do I start?

Well, I guess I’ll start at the beginning of my day! My new trainer had me doing wind sprints up and down the stairs as part of my daily workout.

It’s all about getting fit for summer, and I’ve been working out like a fiend, diary. I mean, it’s already May! Can you believe that? And that means that bikini season is right around the corner, and that means that I have to get freaking fit NOW. As you know, I have a reputation to uphold in the cat modeling world, and I’m already fully booked through summer.

Plus, I have this beefcake calendar coming out… Don’t judge.

Getting bikini ready

Just chillin'

Thank goodness for my trainer! He’s actually the guy who created Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry’s agility training program, and he’s got me on an intense regimen of kitty squats, crinkly ball chasing, air pawing and circuit training, where I run circles around the office and then leap from the floor up to the top of my cat tower to tone my haunches.

I really feel it in my back paws…

It’s great stuff, but exercise is definitely not one of my favorite things to do, so I’ve started bribing myself with accessories to stay motivated, and it really works! I got the idea from my assistant who does it all the time. All I do is tell myself that I can get one of those new lightweight linen cat collars from Burberry (I can’t wait to post about it on my new website, but wait! — I’m getting ahead of myself) if I exercise every day this week.

It’s a form of meow-based mental trickery.

I’m also… Well, my ninth birthday is coming up, and I’ve been thinking a lot about… I don’t know, I guess, my legacy? I’m getting older, and I’m not a kitten anymore.

Along those lines, earlier this year I started my scholarship for young kitty models who want to make a change in their life, and I’m also trying to give back to the kitty modeling community by writing my memoirs.
