Sundays With Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 406

My best feline friend circa 2008

My best feline friend, circa 2007-2008

We really don’t know how old Tabs is.

Our best guess is that he’s about 11, or 10.


Our vet thinks that’s about right, but we don’t really know. He looked like he was near the end of his kittenhood when he first came into our life as a stray, and that was around 2007.

He was a kitty model right from the start, as you can tell. He took to the camera right away.




He also lavished me with lurvies from the start. He’s always loved hanging out.





For kitty modeling, 2009 was his breakout year. That’s when he really picked it up.




And he hasn’t let up, although he doesn’t like to work as many hours as he used to (who does?).







Professionally, he still has a lot he wants to accomplish. I guess that’s how it is with driven cats.

    My sweet Owen, who looks like a slightly smaller, fuzzier Tabs, turned 17 this week! He’s still kittenish in some ways but his age is starting to show. I try not to think about how many years I may have left with him- he is my very bestest friend!

    Tabs, still rocking it after all these years! He does look ever so slightly less Plus Sized Model in the early shots, but he was still very handsome and you can see the potential. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. Maria says:

    Tabs is so adorable. How lucky that you two found each other and that he is a part of the family ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Karen says:

      Hi Maria,

      I did get really lucky. It’s not often that you get to find your once-in-a-lifetime cat.

      I hope that you and your family have found ways to cope with your recent loss of Tiger. Tabs sends hugs and kisses. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I don’t know what it is about those tabby cats. They are just so affectionate, friendly, snuggly, and have super personalities.
    I definitely need to get one of my own.

  10. Chloe says:

    Sunday’s with tabs are something I really look forward to seeing on a Monday morning when I get into the office ^_^. Lots of good kitty juju from Tabs No 1. fan in New Zealand

    Tabs you still got it! Still looking good after all these years! Must be all the TLC

  12. Stephanie says:

    If that’s a handknit hat in 2010, I think I know the pattern…

    I’m a sucker for handknits. And cats.

  13. Modernaires says:

    The NARS compact cat mountain definitely made me laugh! Your posts about Tabs always pull at my heart strings in such emotional ways, Karen! lol It’s such a delight when people think of their fur babies as a best friend, rather than just a pet. ๐Ÿ™‚
