Sundays With Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 305

Published in: Just For Fun, Tabs, Video

When I got this gig working for Tabs as his professional pet assistant/kitty modeling agent, I had no idea of the adventures before me.


I thought I was just hanging out with a cat. How could I have known he would turn into such a powerhouse in the feline fashion and modeling industries. 🙂

Here’s the brief video story of how this all came to pass.

Tabs supports the Purina #MyGreatCat campaign

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.

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.

    I look forward to Tabs installments every Sunday, Karen! He is one cute kitty!
    Did you score anything at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale? I am finally going to try the Zella live in leggings! I wanted one of the the MAC look in a box sets (coral, of course!), but they were all sold out! I see they’re on the MAC website though so hopefully I can score one there!

    • Karen says:

      Thank you, Rachel! Tabs loves being in the spotlight. He’s so glad you enjoy his weekly column. 🙂

      I did pick up a few things at the Anniversary Sale — mostly stuff I needed for my wardrobe, though. I had a birthday gift card (yay!). I picked up a necklace, a couple shirts and a bra (so not exciting but necessary). I wanted to get another pair of Zella leggings but I figure I’ll wait until the ones I have look a little more ratty, LOL. They’ve held up *really* well after all this time!

      Which leggings did you get? The capris or full length ones?

      • Rachel says:

        I got the full length ones, I feel like capris just don’t look quite right on me! They’re supposedly “reversible” but it doesn’t say what color the reverse side is, so it will be a surprise!

    I really enjoyed hearing the story of how you and Tabs came to be family! I once had a neighbor’s kitty befriend me, let herself into my room via my window, and was super friendly! Unfortunately I have pretty bad allergies so our friendship never reached its full potential.
    That also looks like a nice cause that Purina is doing through social media. I don’t have a #MyGreatCat but I do have a #MyGreatDog who is in fact a Purina Pro Plan boy. Although I’m not sure if he would be a good model like Tabs, I think his motto is “I’d rather sleep.” I tried jogging with him yesterday instead of our normal walk, and I think he was protesting the whole time- must stop to pee here, sniff there, poo on that, check out that, lets go slower… 🙂

    I always love seeing Tabs in action. Such a handsome boy! It’s pretty cool how an unexpected encounter with a stray kitty can change your life for the better! Tabby boys are the best. 🙂

  4. Leigh says:

    Nice story; I always wondered about how you two got together.

  5. Chelsea says:

    I love this video! Such a sweet story!

  6. Jenn says:

    Hello. I was wondering if you’ve seen this dear kitten commercial? From one cat lady to another, it’s the best cat commercial ever!

    Adorable baby lion (i have a massive case of kitteh crush)! His face is so expressive! Your love made him choose you over anyone else :).

  8. Tina says:

    New commenter here Karen! I love your blog and your story of meeting Tabs. I met my Buddy much the same way and I love her like no other, I am grateful every day to be her assistant!

    Tabs is such a beautiful cat! And there is clearly a special bond between you two!
