It sucks when you don’t get any downtime.

Forty-five minutes after his paw stepped off the catwalk at New York Fashion Week last Thursday, Tabs was on a flight from JFK bound for Kansas.

It’s because I booked him for back-to-back kitty modeling jobs immediately after New York, even though I didn’t think it was a good idea at all. I thought he’d need some rest after walking in so many shows, but he insisted, and whatever tabby wants, tabby gets.

The Kansas job was an historic first for us — an on-location shoot for a brand new line of eyeshadow duos made by Tabs. So he was both the model and the client.

It worked out great. They did the shoot in a corn field and hired a local turkey actor. I couldn’t believe they actually found a turkey who could model, but Tabs said the bird had skills…

And then right after the Kansas shoot, Tabs took the redeye to Los Angeles, where he had a couple of meetings and worked on four more kitty modeling jobs.

He only got back from L.A. this morning, and now he’s upstairs in the sink taking a nap.

If you’re interested, here are the kitty modeling campaigns Tabs worked on… 🙂

    “…upstairs taking a nap in the sink.” Made me LOL, cats are so funny!

    • Karen says:

      It’s true! Sinks, closets on top of the towels, on the bathroom floor. Tabs sleeps in the strangest places, and he looks so cute when he’s curled up in a fluffy ball.

  2. sarahc says:

    Determination, haha. Tabs you’re so punny. 🙂 I need that lavender fur treatment for myself.

    • Karen says:

      El Hub and I were talking earlier about how cats go from perfectly relaxed to totally freaked out in the blink of an eye. It must be stressful being a cat sometimes. Their senses are so tuned that they see and hear every little thing.

  3. Chelsea says:

    Love these campaigns Tabs! Jiji and I are having a relaxing Sunday evening, we just watched some Lisa Eldridge tutorials while we snuggled (he’s still curled up checking MBB with me). Love you! xoxo

  4. Rachel R. says:

    Hilarious! If Tabs ever makes versions of those eyeshadow duos for humans, I’m in. 🙂

    I currently don’t have a kitty :(, and our bunny is a boy and refuses to do drag, so I can’t get the current versions.

  5. Any advert with Tabs in it is a winning advert! 😉

    These are all great but Tabs’ expression with the turkey made me snort. And on a semi-related front, we were golfing on Saturday and saw 2 big Mama turkeys and 8 babies waddling across the course into the woods. I’d seen ducks before but never turkeys. Everyone out there was stopped and pointing. It was pretty cool 🙂

    • Karen says:

      Those turkeys sure get huge this time of year too. Tabs has no idea what to do about them. I think he knows they’re birds, so he squats down like he wants to pounce on them, but then he realizes that they’re huge and probably weigh more than he does, so he backs down, haha.

      Hey, check your tweezerkitty email, babe. I sent you an email about the Purina Pro Plan snacks giveaway. You were one of the winners!

      • Kim says:

        Oh my gosh, Karen!!! I’m so excited. I’ll check right now. I replaced it on my phone with my work email so the poor account doesn’t get any attention anymore! Yay!

        And I totally agree on the turkeys. Even I’m intimidated. HAHA!

  7. Stephaine Moctezuma-Hernandez says:

    How do you keep tabs’ coat so shiny? Also what if anything do you reccomend to reduce shedding?

  8. Sylirael says:

    ROFL – that Turkey ad is awesome! 😀 Tabs is a legend. There need to be more makeup and jewellery campaigns featuring his husky magnificence!
