Kitty supermodel, media mogul, former professional athlete — Tabs wears many hats.

One might think that with his complete and total domination of so many categories, the public would tire of Tabs, but in fact we see the opposite effect.

His fans are always hungry for more (much like Tabs himself when it comes to gravy).

The other day he sat down with US Weekly (the celebrity cat edition) for a special exposé article. Here’s a preview of the piece if you don’t subscribe to the magazine, followed by Tabs’ latest media venture, part 1 of a new graphic novel titled Surely You Jest.

Hope you enjoy. 🙂

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Tabs

  1. As you know, Tabs likes to wear a lot of bling, even though he already has built-in bracelets and necklaces on his patterned tabby fur. But he’s particularly fond of Kate Spade and Tiffany for day-to-day wear, and for red carpet, Chanel and vintage estate jewelry.
  2. He was offered the part of Buttercup in the Hunger Games, but he turned it down due to a scheduling conflict.
  3. He has several Formula 1 racing championships under his belt.
  4. He owns a summer home on Lake Como in Italy next door to George Clooney.
  5. He was the best man at Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan’s wedding.
  6. He does all of his own stunts.
  7. He’s fluent in several languages, including Tagalog, Hawaiian Pidgin, French, Portuguese, Italian, Spanish and Mandarin.
  8. He’s hosted Saturday Night Live more than any other cat.
  9. He has a thing for fancy candles.
  10. He loves wheat bread.

And now, it’s comic time! Look for part 2’s thrilling conclusion next week… 🙂

So, what is the #MyGreatCat campaign?

“We want cat owners everywhere to not only recognize what makes their cats great but be empowered to share that,” says Purina Pro Plan Cat food brand manager Aaron Williams.

For each picture or video you share on your social media channels that includes the hashtag #MyGreatCat from now through August 31, Purina Pro Plan will donate one pound of cat food — up to 50,000 pounds — to hundreds of cat rescue groups nationwide through the Purina Pro Plan Rally to Rescue network.

That’s right! Every time you share a pic or video of your feline employer just being awesome in his/her own way, you’ll be feeding a hungry cat.

    I didn’t know Tabs had such a knack for languages!

    I can’t wait to read the rest of the comic!

    • tabs says:

      Hi Chelsea,

      Tabs here. Yes, I also speak passable Farsi and Russian.

      Interestingly, many cats are polyglots. It enhances our ability to connect with, and order around, pet assistants all over the world.

      Meow ya later,

    Aww, poor Tabs! Still, the Jester is a very complex role…

      Hi Sylirael,

      That’s what my assistant has told me, but I don’t know. It doesn’t feel like a leading role to me, but we’ll see. We haven’t started actual shooting yet.

      In other news, I noticed a picture of Hearthstone on an iPad in one of the pictures on your blog (which I love, by the way). Are you a fan? My male assistant (goes by the name “El Hub”) is totally obsessed with that game.



  3. Charlotte says:

    Karen, I get such a kick out of the comics you make starring Tabs, and he looks adorable as a knight >< This is definitely one of my favorite things that you feature!

    • tabs says:

      Hi Charlotte,

      I would pass your compliment on to my assistant, but I’m afraid it would go to her head.

      As to the spirit of your comments, thank you. Yes, I do look quite amazing in plate and chain mail.

      Love, always,


  4. Kim says:

    The Jester? I think our long-suffering pet assistant is in for a rough day. 😉

    • tabs says:

      Hi Kim,

      I’m being told it’s a meaty role, but I have my suspicions. I’ll know more when we start shooting this week. I, of course, can only do roles worthy of my greatness.

      As for my assistant, she has no idea what horrors await her if this doesn’t go swimmingly. The entire project was her idea.



      • Kim says:

        Tabs, I know you can give an Oscar worthy performance, portraying even the most poorly written character. I’m also intrigued by the skull decoration – it should give you an opportunity to stretch those claws. Meow! 🙂
        PS Please be merciful with your assistant; she’s extremely dedicated!
