Sundays With Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 267

Published in: Just For Fun, Tabs

Tabs the Cat for the Illamasqua Mummy Cat Collection

Who is Tabs the Cat? About six 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). πŸ™‚

Who the heck invites a bobcat to a Halloween party? That’s what I want to know.


Yeah, Tabs went to Karl Lagerfeld’s big Halloween bash last night, and there was this bobcat there — huge cat — apparently he does a lot of print ads and covers for cat romance novels. Anyway, I guess he had a little too much catnip because he went batsh*t crazy at one point, smashed a sliding glass window and fell in the pool.

Yes, it was that kind of party.

Tabs said it was OK, but if you’ve been to one kitty supermodel Halloween party, you’ve been to ’em all. Same thing, different day. Choupette, Lagerfeld’s cat, went as a dominatrix…

Yeah, bo-ring.

I mean, you work with Karl Lagerfeld, for crying out loud. Do something original.

Tabs went as a mummy cat, but only because he was still dressed up after shooting an ad campaign yesterday for Illamasqua.

All things considered, it sounds like it was a good party. Tabs said the catnip hard candies were great.

Tabs actually did do some work this weekend, so it wasn’t all fun and games. If you’re interested, here are the highlights from his kitty modeling campaigns…

    Tabs wanted me to tell you guys thanks for the compliments on his latest body of work. πŸ™‚ He takes his job as a world-renowned kitty supermodel quite seriously, as you well know.

    At his age (he’s about 7 now), it’s all about his legacy and leaving his mark. He wants to leave the kitty modeling world a better place than he found it.
