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). -Karen
Dear friends, fans and foodies,
Yes, foodies. As you know, I have many opportunities to sample fine feline cuisine at notable five-star feline friendly restaurants around the world. It’s one of the perks of being a world-renowned kitty supermodel.
And as much as I love a purr-fectly prepared chef’s tasting menu, there’s really nothing quite like enjoying a good meal in the comfort of my home.
On those rare occasions when I do get a bit of downtime, I call on my in-house kitchen staff to prepare my meals. As you can tell by my physique, I love to eat; however, I am not one of those cats who will simply eat anything you put in front of him. I insist that my personal chef only fixes fare that excites my taste buds!
To that end, I typically stick to three-course meals.
I usually like to start with an appetizer — a few treats to warm up my palette — and lately I’ve been loving these Purina Pro Plan Savory Bites. I’ve had the chicken, salmon and the tuna, and all three are delish (but my favorite is the chicken).
For my main dishes, I prefer wet food, sometimes with gravy, sometimes without. It depends on how I’m feeling and whether my nutritionist and trainer are prepping me for a movie role.
The chef outdid herself today. For lunch she prepared a chicken, pasta and spinach entree in gravy that made me lick my whiskers clean. It was utterly divine! When I asked her for the recipe, she said “Purina Pro Plan.”
Since I have grown accustomed to the finer things in life, I insist upon a formal dining setting with fine china and crisp linen table cloths at every meal — you know, the upscale accoutrements that any cat of international acclaim enjoys.
I work hard; I deserve it.
Between meals, to maintain my million-dollar physique (incidentally, I recently had my tum insured with the same company that insures J.Lo’s legs), I like to snack on dry food.
Actually, I like to keep the dry food out throughout the day because I must keep this body and mind fueled and focused on its goals. Eye of the tiger and all that.
When I’m hungry, I can’t concentrate. My assistant and I are similar in that respect.
My dry food of choice these days is Purina Pro Plan Turkey and Rice Formula for indoor cats.
Pure perfection. If you like turkey, get on that.
Ah! I must take my leave now, as I hear my tummy rumbling. Stay fabulous.

P.S. Tell me, my friend, what has your personal chef been preparing for you these days?
