Sundays With Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 388

Published in: Just For Fun, Tabs


Dear Diary,


Whoa! I only have time for a quick entry this week because I’ve been très busy, but I still wanted to update you on the big news in my life.

Finally, after nine long months of waiting on the HR Department, I met my new protégé, Ms. Connor Claire (please don’t call her CC).


I have to admit — we got off to a rocky start. When I introduced myself, the first thing she did was cry, so, obviously, I’m going to have to teach her business etiquette.

I’m very excited about taking her paw under my wing and showing her the ways of the kitty modeling world.


First item on the agenda: build her a wardrobe of stylish fashion basics. Everything will be covered in tabby cats, of course.

    OMG Tabs seems so shy 😃!

  2. Kwmechelle says:

    THANK YOU FUR THIS!!! Yes, I’m screaming this. But meeting Connor, who I’ll refrain from calling CC (as in Coco Chanel), is worthy of a scream or two. Hope you guys are enjoying amazing cuddling time. And that she & Tabs become best buds. Btw, they both make great models 😉

  3. Janet says:

    Awww congrats! She’s totes adorbs!!

  4. Lulle says:

    Adorable! It’s too funny how poor Tabs freaks out for a minute, with a “what on earth is that creature!” look on his face! 😀

    She is so cute! Tabs, you’ll get used to her! You won’t be able to resist her charms!

  6. Suzanne C says:

    Hahaha! They were both like “WTH!?!?” I promise not to call her CC; in fact, I don’t think I could call her anything but Connor Claire. It’s funny how some names just fit instantly. My great niece is Mykaela or Shortcake or Mikey (like her dad was), but I already know the new baby will be MacKenzie Skye, both names.

  7. Cheryl says:

    Tabs, your baby sis is just perfect!!!! 🙂 I’m jealous!

  8. Denise M says:

    Tabs, after the initial tears, Connor Claire looks very comfortable ensconced between you and Mom. So thoughtful of you to get her suitably outfitted with the tabby cat wardrobe. Enjoy getting to know your protégé…

  9. Charlotte says:

    Awww. I love the cat bib. And I may have to just get a pair of those kitty socks for myself! Congratulations on your new protege Tabs! 🙂 Charlotte (Mesa and Pashmina’s mom)

    Don’t take it personally, Tabs – I’m sure you two will be fast friends in no time. 🙂 And, I applaud your excellent kitty instincts. Your cousins always came running when their small assistants cried, too!

    Gina, Tony, & Gracie.

  33. Ruchita says:

    Oh Tabs, how exciting! You will make a great big brother and Miss Connor is sure to be the best dressed girl on the block. Looking forward to seeing more of your adventures together. 🙂

  34. Jennifer says:

    Tabs, I can’t tell if you’re disgusted that Connor is so young or if you’re hopeful that she will be your best protégée ever or discouraged at the thought of all the work ahead of you!
    But, I have every confidence that you can Connor Claire can have a successful working relationship.

    She is adorable, Karen! And I love the photo of Tabs who looks like he’s already protecting her!

  43. Mitzi says:

    Oh Tabs! I bet you’re relieved your assistant is back home, and with your new assistant in training with her! Although it wasn’t scheduled in your busy appointment book, it looked like the meeting went well (after the initial surprised look on both your faces). Ms Connor Claire’s squeaks was no doubt due to her excitement in meeting you, and her being unable to contain that excitement!

    Very happy to see you are back home, Karen! Though hospitals are somewhat comfortable, there’s really no place like home to be able to relax and start adjusting to being a mom. :).

  44. Melissa says:

    She is just such a beautiful baby girl! That was so precious how you introduced Tabs & Connor! Just think not to long they will be best Buds!! I love Baby Girls Name SO MUCH!! She came out of the womb So Chic & with the Prettiest Momma!! Congrats! ❤️😘😘

  55. Becca says:

    Karen you are a true animal lover….just your approach to Tabs and explaining that Connor is a friend…that says it all and how you respect Tabs’ feelings. I can imagine all the new smells Tabs is experiencing and must be frightening! But as we all see here, what a good mommy role model you are to Tabs, you’re gonna do just fine with Connor. Also, thanks for sharing such an intimate part of your life with us – your fan base! Happy mommy chronicles!! Be well!!
