Cherry Blossom Tabby

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).

Dear fans and felines,


Today, I give you the gift of Tabs. A wallpaper with which to decorate your desktop, iPhone and/or iPad.

Now you may revel in my Rubenesque feline physique while you surf the Web for cat-themed accessories, YouTube videos and apparel, activities I strongly encourage.

I have made the image available in a variety of sizes to suit today’s most popular electronic devices. Just click and save to your computer.

A Tabs-themed wallpaper is a good first step in fully embracing the complete cat lady lifestyle.

The theme? Spring and the blooming of cherry blossoms in Japan, where I just returned from a business trip to pinpoint possible venues for my first official Japanese cat cafe.

The cat culture in Japan is quite robust but highly competitive now. The days of just hopping in and out of a box and getting famous are long gone. Maru set the bar high. Now there’s merchandising, late night TV and music videos. You have to really want it.

I was severely jet-lagged when I got back to the Bay Area yesterday, which is why I sent my assistant to Nashville this morning on my behalf. Unfortunately, that meant I wouldn’t be able to see Hayden Panettiere tomorrow. We had an interview scheduled in Nashville (totally serious), but my assistant enthusiastically said she would do it (which reminds me, if you have any makeup/beauty questions you’d like my assistant to ask, please leave a comment).

      Hi Sylirael,

      Good morning. Happy Monday.

      I think the pics can be arranged. 🙂 Theme-wise, what would you like to see the most? Tabs pics or makeup pics? Or both?

    Thank you Tabs and assistant. He’s on my laptop. I love it! I know he’ll be a big hit in Japan.

      Hi Julia,

      We hope so. I hope so, because I’d love to head out there as part of Tabs’ advance team to set up the cafe and investigate Japanese cat street fashion, LOL!

      Have a great week. What are you up to today?
