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).
Dear friends and feline aficionados,
Just a quick entry tonight. I’ve spent the better part of the past two days contending with the Christmas crowds, and my paws are killing me.
I started at the mall, and heavens! — it was a madhouse. So. Many. Cats, dogs and humans.
The dogs were everywhere, running this way and that. Most of them stayed out of my way, though, which was nice.
The children were…generally less polite, yelling and reaching out with their sticky grabby hands. One of them grabbed my tail but had the good sense to let go when I hissed. Another one exhibited perfect technique with her petting, so I advised her to consider a career in professional pet assisting after she finished her schooling.
When my tummy rumbled, I stopped by Boudin’s for a small cup of their delicious clam chowder and then stopped by Pier One to look for festive feline decorations.
Unfortunately, the cat-themed selection was lacking, but the elephants and penguins were represented well. They must shop at that store a lot…
As for my kitty modeling, I had a few fun jobs early this week, but things are starting to slow down now with Christmas approaching. I’m sure they’ll pick up again after the first.
Per our regular arrangement, I’m reposting my kitty modeling campaign pictures here in my online portfolio for your evaluation. I hope you enjoy.
Your loving furry friend, always,
