Tabs the Cat for Benefit Pot o' Gold Fur Highlighter

It’s rough for Tabs when it’s sunny like this because he wants to be outside constantly. There’s just so much to do! — like cavort with the new neighborhood kitties (there are two of them) and tend to his deck garden, now freshly planted with snapdragons, Gerbera daisies and catnip, among other plants his human friends find tasty, like tomatoes and sweet pepper.


On Saturday he made a Home Depot run and picked up a few tools and some pieces of lumber.

Yes, he’s multitalented like that. 🙂

Seriously, have you ever seen a cat do carpentry? It’s really quite incredible. He built a table to set his daisies and snapdragons on and a small planter box for cat grass. Later this week he plans to build an improv cat tree from which he’ll be able to survey his dominion. He’s drawing up the plans as we speak…

Tabs loves gardening. It’s how he relaxes after a tough week of kitty modeling. Last week was particularly brutal. He had back-to-back trips to Tokyo and Ireland to shoot ad campaigns for NARS and Benefit, respectively, and then an overnight stay in New York for MAC.

He’s really racking up the frequent flyer miles…

Here are the latest kitty modeling campaigns in his portfolio. Hope you enjoy!

Who is Tabs the Cat?
Kitty Supermodel Tabs the CatAbout 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).

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. So much good TV on tonight! Gah! I can’t wait to see what happens on The Walking Dead, and then there’s Cosmos. I have to make a really quick run to Trader Joe’s now, and Tabs needs more dry food from Petco. Must hurry back!
