Kitty supermodel

10 things you may or may not know about Tabs

  1. He’s a ho for egg yolk, a.k.a. an “egg yolk connoisseur.”
  2. He’s a decent babysitter. He’ll hang out with me and Connor as long as he gets pet by someone’s hand, whether it be mine or the baby’s.
  3. He’ll politely harass you to get his wet food at 9:30 every night, on the dot. He’ll sit in the kitchen doorway staring and staring and staring until you feed him…
  4. He likes to supervise me when I use the loo first thing in the morning, and he’s very insistent about it. He’ll scratch at the door, and even if it’s only open a sliver, he’ll use his girth to push his way in.
  5. In his old age, he just doesn’t give a sh*t anymore. All the things that used to bother him as a younger cat, like me running on the treadmill when he’s napping on the bed. He used to leave the room because of the noise, but now he’s like, “Whatev…” and just keeps napping.
  6. He still gets fired up after eating wet food. He’ll save up all of his energy to go completely buck wild for 15 solid minutes after finishing his gravy.
  7. If I’m in the kitchen and open a can of anything, he’ll be down there in less than 10 seconds, no matter what. I actually time it. I count out loud. Last night I opened a can of black beans, and it took him 7 seconds to show up.
  8. He’s getting worse about hanging out around my feet, especially when I’m turned around. I’ve almost tripped over him a few times. This usually happens in the kitchen.
  9. Honestly, sometimes I think he teases Connor. When he’s outside her Pack ‘n’ Play and she’s inside it, he stares at her as if to say, “Neener, neener. I’m outside and you’re not.”
  10. He’s WAY bolder than he used to be about stealing food. When he was younger, he was quite polite about leaving human food to the humans, but now I have to watch him like a hawk. I can’t leave any food unattended, because he’ll grab it in his mouth and run away or start drinking your milky tea when you’re not looking.

Tabs sleeping kitty dreamer

I always wonder what Tabs is dreaming about when I see his little paw twitching in his sleep.

Is he thinking about the time he cornered a lizard outside on the hill, when he had his paw on it, and the lizard straight up and bit him, and he freaked out? Or is he thinking about the time when he was on his harness and caught a baby bird by the front door?

He only has a 10-foot leash, but he bolted instantaneously off the walkway into the yard. I didn’t have time to react. All of a sudden, I look down and my wonderful little tabby has a tiny bird in his mouth! It was a nightmare…

Well, it was a nightmare for me and the bird, but it might’ve been the greatest dream in the world to Tabs.

Or, is he thinking about the first time I gave him bacon? Maybe he’s just laying there thinking, “Uoh…bacon,” like Homer Simpson does.

Is he dreaming about his kittenhood and his kitty siblings? Does he ever dream about his kitty mom? Does he think about her? Sometimes that thought makes me sad…

I wonder… Do cats dream in images kind of like we do? Does he ever dream about us? Does he dream about me? Does he hear my voice? If he does, what do I sound like in the dreams? Do I sound like the grownups in Peanuts cartoons? “Wah-wah wah-wah-wahhh.”

Is he just feeling emotions like comfort, happiness and fear, or does he actually see memories of things that have happened to him in his life?

Does he make up stories in his mind? Are his dreams fantasies? Like, does he dream of walking into the dining room one day to find a stack of bacon three feet tall? Does he dream of a litter box the size of a playground or other things like that?

I wonder…

Trick or cat treat!

There was a time when Tabs would have darted down the stairs, leaping over three or four of them at a time, the instant he heard me call, “Tabby! It’s time for your Halloween photo shoot (and the treats and lurvies that come with it)!!”

But he’s a mature tabby now. He walks down the stairs more often than he runs, but I think Halloween is still probably his favorite holiday…

Oh, wait! I forgot about Thanksgiving, so it would be Thanksgiving first (you know, ’cause of the turkey), and Halloween second.

He loves, Christmas, too, but he doesn’t like winter because it’s cold outside, so we don’t go for as many walks.

This year for Halloween he’s wearing his very stylish King of Hearts cat costume, which, amazingly enough, still fits! I thought it might be a little snug for him, but it’s not.

If Tabs could really go trick-or-treating, it’s easy to know what he’d like to get in terms of treats and snacks — turkey (including gravy), tuna, bacon and Oven Roasted Chicken Feline Greenies. Together, they’re the keys to his heart.

Trick or cat treat!

This cat loves tuxedos

It’s almost Halloween! — which means that all of the (adult) humans in this household are thinking about costumes, horror movies or candy. Or a combination thereof.

Tabs, however, probably isn’t thinking about his costume (I think it’s safe to say), but I’m sure he likes our impromptu cat costume kitty modeling shoots, because they afford him many of his favorite things, including lurvies, attention and treats.

This cat loves tuxedos

I cleaned the upstairs bathroom today while Tabs lounged around in his new tuxedo.

As far as fancy feline attire goes, this outfit checks all the right boxes for Tabs. It’s loose-fitting because it uses snaps, and we can undo the top one. It’s black and white, so it goes with his tabby fur. And it has a snazzy bow. 🙂

The Go Cat Cat Catcher

Any cat toy capable of coaxing a kitty supermodel senior tabby down from his penthouse suite high atop his favorite cat condo is worth adding to your cat’s collection.

The Go Cat Teaser Cat Catcher Wand Cat Toy ($8.45) doesn’t look like much. It looks a little basic, but it’s a truly revolutionary cat catching product.

It has a shiny wire instead of a string, so it’s almost indestructible, and somehow, for some reason I have yet to understand, Tabs can’t resist it.

He has a drawer filled with other cat toys, and some of them look like this with string and dangly toys or feathers, but there was only one other string toy that Tabs liked as much as this, and it wasn’t even a legit toy. It was a piece of glittery string that came wrapped around a gift box, and Tabs absolutely loved that thing…until he shredded it and tore it apart.

This one is a little expensive for one cat toy, but Tabs loves it, and I’d rather get him something he likes than a toy that will just sit in a box.
