Sundays with Tabs the Cat: Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot

How it all began

How it all beganBefore he was famous
About three years ago I started to notice a chubby tabby cat skulking around my apartment building. I’d see him every few months or so, sneaking around the cars in the parking lot, but whenever I’d try to get his attention, he’d just flash me a dirty look and walk away.


For love and makeupFor love and makeup
Then, one day I opened the apartment door, and there he was, sitting in the hallway in front of me. He must have seen all the makeup inside because he walked passed me into the apartment like he owned the place. And so began our dysfunctional friendship. 🙂

Tabs for the Shu Uemura Whisker CurlerPhotoshop phenom or kitty supermodel?
About a year into our relationship, Tabs and I were cruising the mall when a talent scout stopped us. “Have you ever thought about being a model?” he asked (he was referring to Tabs). That day marked the start of what’s turned out to be a successful kitty modeling career. He also blogs on the side…

      you should watch 101 cats (animal planet)
      i remember they showed cat , whos best for alergic people and he was so fluffy and cute ^^ . But i dont remember which one that was, so you need to find full series and watche them all( theres not so many, so its ok)
      Did you know that peeps are alergic not becouse of cat hair but his saliva that gets on fur when cat is licking himself 🙂 ?

  22. Teresa says:

    I love kittens!

  23. tuppup says:

    I’d love to have an extra $100 to spend!

  24. Stephanie says:

    I rescued my kitty from the SF care and control. I went to the shelter wanting to adopt a kitten, but got my heart stolen by a fully grown, 3 year old, dainty little grey tabby with a white tummy and white “socks.” 😀

    I love tabs’ pictures! Fantastic model.

  26. Rachel Estes says:

    I have two kitties. One is named Cinidi-Loo Who and the other is Tonks. Can you guess where we got those from? They too wiggled their way into my heart even though I always said that I liked dogs better. Now I can’t imagine life without them!!!

  32. Nina says:

    Tabs is a very very charismatic cat for me, he is really handsome and all, yes, but he’s more than that, you know. He has an attitude 😀 I think I love him because of this. Considering I’m a dog person, this is saying a lot. And happy 100th! I’m wishing you two many more Sundays together! 🙂

  33. Katrina says:

    Tabs is such a nice looking cat, so welled groomed and so photogenic! He needs to give my kitty some photo tips!

  34. christine says:

    Love your portfolio Tabs! Congratulations on your 100th! Can’t wait to see you next week..

  35. Heather W. says:

    I plan on getting a cute siamese cat (not the thin ones, the fluffy ones). I always think that they look like cream cats dipped a little in chocolate.

  36. KarenW says:

    I started reading Makeup and Beauty Blog largely because my name is also Karen and I have a tabby cat who is a dead ringer for Tabs. His name is Phinney, but his modeling career hasn’t taken off yet. Perhaps Tabs has a lock on the large-boned tabby look?

  37. Sara says:

    My dog’s name is Kelly! I’m moving out for college tomorrow and I’m going to miss her a lot 🙁

  38. Brody says:

    Never had a cat (or a dog) but I love rats! They’re cute and intelligent and don’t ruin carpets! Haha.

  43. Brittany says:

    I love you AND Tabs!
    He is so precious and my guilty pleasure is secretly snickering at the cute modeling shoots Tabs does. In fact right now my boyfriend just asked what are you laughing at? (showed him the Pret a Papier a la Tabs pic) and he busted out laughing!
    Thanks for always tickling my makeup fancy & my funny bone <3

  44. Myrlene says:

    I had once a kitten named Mickey…

  45. Sharon says:

    Congrats!! Tabs seems like the coolest cat ever!

  46. Alex says:

    Tabs is such a good looking cat. I wish I could get a cat, but my dad is allergic.

    Instead, I have two parakeets and a chinchilla. My birds are named Snowy and Cricket, and my Chinchilla is named Mouse.

  47. Debbie says:

    Haha, I love the iTabs picture! I hadn’t seen that one before, so cute!!!

  48. ALYSE says:

    I love you blog so much and as my bf wont let me have a cat i get my fix from tab’s cute photo shoots!

  49. Emily Perrine says:

    I absolutley LOVE the pictures that you do with your cat! I should so post some of my kitty pics at some point…I get the feeling you may like cats. =) My cat plays fetch like a dog and sits like a person…she’s a funny one. =) And so ends my entry. =)

  50. Shannon says:

    I have 2 dogs & a cat – our cat got his name “Bandit” because he has an eye mask sort of like an old fashioned bandit…however, I call him L.B. or “Lil B*st*rd” because he has such attitude LOL Winning this prize would buy a lot of cat treats for him! 🙂 Good luck everyone

  51. Stacey says:

    I have a long haired chihuahua mix named Giggy-short for Fizzgig. I love cats but am so allergic. Giggy sure isn’t like a cat, even though he’s the size of one.

  52. Masi says:

    I LOVE TABS!!!!!!!! I look forward to reading your blog everyday just to see the new pictures of Tabby.

    this one!!!

  55. Lori says:

    aww, what a cute cat

  56. Michelle says:

    It’s funny that so many people say they want to have cats but can’t because they are allergic. My whole family’s allergic but we have two! 😛

  57. Janine says:

    I don’t have any kitties, but we do have 6 chinchillas! The favorite is Mike Jr. (He was given to me by a friend who is a breeder, who named him after the chinny’s dad.) Sadly, Mike Jr. does not have a tail, as he was born breech, and his momma bit it off trying to get him out. It doesn’t stop him from being adorable! He’s a round grey little tubbo, with plenty of personality!

  58. Taylor says:

    My three kitties: Patches, Homer, and Salem, would love to be best friends with Tabs and conquer the world!

  59. Twetriz says:

    This is just to cute! Tabs is hip 🙂

  60. Lily says:

    hi Tabby 🙂

  61. Stephanie says:

    Tabs isn’t chubby… just big boned.

  62. regina says:

    Isn’t it great when a cat picks you instead of the other way around? My mom’s cat (Bo, short for Mr. Bojangles) had a similar story – he was wandering around the neighborhood shortly before I left for my freshman year in college and I started feeding him because he was starving but sooo friendly. Here it is 8 years later and Bo is totally a part of the family (even my dad who is really allergic to cats loves him, though he will never admit it). My husband and I have three cats of our own that we adopted from our local shelter. They are all girls – maybe one could be Tabs’ girlfriend? : )

  63. JooAh says:

    i love tab’s burberry ad!! Its so cute!

  64. Lindsay says:

    Thanks for the contest Tabs!

  65. Brenda says:

    Tabs is the coolest cat EVER!

  66. Courtney says:

    I like Tabs because he is a Fabulous Feline! He wears his makeup and fashion so effortlessly. I have cats too and they are very fashionable animals. Why else do we have the “cat eye”, “cat wing” and all the cat print clothing!

  67. AshBash says:

    $100 may fund my new hair look OR it could sponsor my venemous villians haul. what if i did the responsible thing and bought a textbook? naw… really hope i win!!!!

  68. Glosslizard says:

    I’d have to comment even if there wasn’t a contest involved! Me and my furry girls are all big fans of Tabs (Haay from P-Lily, Sama and Nefret)! Congrats to you and Tabs on your successful collaboration, and on making it to the 100th Sundays With Tabs post!

    You’ve come a long way, tabby!

  85. Lynette says:

    Anything at all, eh?

    Mmm. I’ve been craving smores with dark chocolate squares and fluffy marshmallows. And I’ve been wearing no makeup at all except for Benefit’s Samba-dy Love Me and a thin line of liquid eyeliner, which is strange for me. I’ve been crushin’ on the pictures of fresh faced French ladies over on The Satorialist. Ooh, and I’d love to see a review of Benefit’s new liquid eyeliner, too.

    That’s all for now!

    PS~ My cat’s name is Gypsy, because I rescued her as a tiny kitty from a gigantic snowbank in a parking lot. Her little tail was frostbitten, and I kept her in my shirt all day. I haven’t been able to get her unattached ever since!

  86. Steph says:

    Happy 100th Anniversary!! I would love to have a cat as stylish as Tabs.

  95. brookelet says:

    Very cute kitty … and much more stylish than mine! Her name is the Piglet, so named because she is a PIGLET!!! She was found on my parents’ property, starving, and she fought with my mom’s cat, so the parentals drove her out here (to CA from CO) to live with me. Now she is the opposite of starving. And she has a lot to say, but no blog … yet.

  102. Gen says:

    i have four cats and their names are lucky, karamel, charlie and bella.

    lucky got his name because he was very abused when he was with his first owners and i think he’s “lucky” that we became his owners. we also call him “lucky duck,” or “lukie duke.”

    karamel got his name because he’s caramel-colored, though his is spelled with a “k,” at my dad’s request. we also call him “mellow” and “mellow yellow.”

    charlie got his name because he looks like a charlie. plus, i’m a big fan of the “twilight” books. we also call him “chaaaaaahles” or “bear,” or “charlie the bear” because he’s so big.

    bella (stella) got her name because she’s pretty. plus, my dad knows what a “thing” i have for stars, so he suggested we add the “stella” at the end of her name because “stella” is italian for “star.” also, see “twilight” reference above. lol. we also call her mademoiselle, “bug,” or “bibitte” (french for “bug”) because she’s so little.

    bella and charlie are brother and sister but the others are not related.

    i’m a crazy cat lady too. can you tell? lol

  103. Ellie says:

    Congratulations to Tabs on his 100th Sunday! He’s so cute- looks just like my baby (Rascal) who ran away about a year ago. 🙁 Fortunately, our other two cats stayed with us when we moved. Chester is an all white kitty who seems to be schizophrenic. He likes large scary-looking men, laps, and killing birds and small mammals. Cassius is a very pudgy tuxedo cat who is not the brightest bulb on the christmas tree. He enjoys lying on top of open magazines, licking people, and chasing laser beams. They both like sleeping upside down and tripping people on the stairs.

    Wow, sounds like I just wrote a personal for my cats. 😀 I actually tried to polish Chester’s claws once. Didn’t work out so well.

  104. Amber says:

    Hehehehe I love the Tabs photos above! Too cute. I had an adorable little doggie named Buttercup, she looked like a peanut butter cup minus the chocolate, hence the name 😉 I miss her to pieces, she was so playful, thus began my love of doggies, cats, and other little animals. Thanks for the lovely giveaway Karen, this would be so so awesome to win! Ask Tabs to do a little goodluck purr on my comment for me!

  105. Suji says:

    Happy 100th post to you & Tabs the cat! My kitty is a domestic long hair with grey and white fur, and he’s named after Gandalf from Lord of the Rings 🙂

  109. Rachael says:

    My kitty is named Indie, and she pretty much picked it out herself. I was watching all the Indiana Jones movies with my brother the night I got her, she would perk up every time someone would say “Indy.” Plus she’s such a diva that she has her own theme song lol.

  135. Christina says:

    I remember following way back when you first started getting to know Tabs and he’s all grown up and being fierce now!

    So cute and awesome of him to sponsor this contest!

      i remember they showed cat , whos best for alergic people and he was so fluffy and cute ^^ . But i dont remember which one that was, so you need to find full series and watch them all ( theres not so many, so its ok)

  168. Stephanie! says:

    My cats B.A. & Murdock (yeah thats right 😉 ) are huge fans of Tabs! They have only been following your blog for a short while, but they think your blog is the best of the bunch (so they told me) Every time I open one of your blogposts, they near knock me off my chair, trying to get a peek at some new hot Tabby photo’s.

    And I quite like your blog as well!! Keep up the good work Karen!

My one cat is stretched out next to me, getting her belly rubbed, while the other is sleeping on top of his scratching pad in the corner. Life is good. 🙂

  181. Abby says:

    What I like about Tabs is the fact he’s a wee cutie tubba, I have one over and one underweight cat and I loooooooooove both of them to death. It’s nice to see a fellow crazy cat lady 🙂

  182. Jill H says:

    Thank you for hosting this giveaway!

  191. Courtney L says:

    Thanks for doing this Tabs! Fingers crossed.

  192. Lucy says:

    I like Tabs, because he reminds me of my old cat Kodiak, an old dusty white and tan cat who liked to laze about and look angry. He’s since gone, but now I have two cats I love very much: Blackjack (an old black ham obsessed cat), and Delilah (a mean, little cat who thinks she is the prettiest kitty this side of Cool Town).

  193. Kacey says:

    When I was 3 years old, I got a present: a tabby cat, complete with red bow, which promptly scratched me and ran away. We named her Sassy, and I loved her dearly for many years. I hope someday to have another kitty in my life – though perhaps this time without the scratching/running part 😛

  194. Elizabeth says:

    I love Tabs in part because he bears a resemblance to the tabby cat I grew up with. He passed a few years ago now and I still miss him, but the pics of Tabs always brighten my day. 🙂

  195. Marcy says:

    I don’t have a cat, but my partner’s cat (who lives with his parents) is called Mouse. People always go ‘huh’ when I talk about Mouse… it’s a good trick for some lol.

    Tabs is the OG feline supermodel.

    “Tabby Tabby Tabby, can’t you see

    And I just love your flashy ways
    Guess that’s why they broke, and you’re so paid”

    Haha…if there was a like button I’d press it! Who knew something so little as a cat in a wig could brighten the day so much 😀

  198. aniko says:

    I have such a great story. Also about a former street cat. A few years ago I was renting a small suite in a house and that’s how I met Lily. She was truly lily white and quite independent and feisty even after living for a few years with my landlord’s family. She was always ready to scratch you but I liked her all the same. One late night I was browsing the internet looking for jobs. Lily jumped on the table and she looked like she needed some company. Since I had a few scratches from her I thought I would put on a glove before I started playing with her. I stole me landlord’s work gloves, put them on and played with Lily for a good half hour, letting her exercise her claws and just enjoy herself. She looked so happy and then she did something that totally surprised me. I was sitting low in an office chair and leaning back. Lily climbed on my chest and then wrapped herself around my shoulders and neck like a big, warm, fluffy white fur shawl. She stayed there for a good 20 minutes, purring like crazy all the while. So the feisty former street cat needed and in turn gave affection.

    I am a major pet lover 😀 Cats, dogs, hamsters, rabbits, fish… My very first pet was a cat and that was when I was still in first grade hahaha 🙂 Unfortunately when I was in high school my doctor said I developed hypersensitivity of some sort to cats = MAJOR SNEEZING, RUNNY EYES & NOSE which lasts for days. After how many cats, I now have nine dogs! 🙂 Also, I can now tolerate cats ‘coz of the meds I’m taking so I adopted some stray cats as well- Puts in Boots, Candy, and Cookie 🙂

Please keep posting plenty of pictures of him, I miss my 3 cats (at my parents’ house) very badly and reading your blog makes it even more comforting than if there were only photos of makeup..

  218. Clara says:

    I understand totally your devotion to Tabs. I was never a pet person until my husband persuaded me to get a puppy. Now I’m just like one of the people I used to make fun of! I can’t imagine life without him. Thanks so much for this terrific giveaway!

  222. Kymberlee says:

    When I first got my cat, I made the mistake of letting him outside one night. When I went to bring him in, he was nowhere to be found. I searched and searched with no luck. Time passed and I thought he either was gone for sure or worse… dead. After about a month, I was driving home and saw a cat that looked nothing like Malcolm. I jokingly said to my then- boyfriend, now-husband, “Look! There’s Malcolm!”. When we both looked again, right behind that cat WAS Malcolm! I couldn’t believe it. He was so skinny and it look lots of coaxing to get him to come out from where he’d hidden. I was and still am so thankful I found him.

  223. YadiQ says:

    Yay tabs congrats !!

    My kitty at home is named jasmine she was named by my stepdaughter after her favorite bratz doll

    My cat back home with my parents is named diva when we saw her at the north shore animal league all she did was meow at us and we were like awww she’s a little diva and diva she remained!!!

  224. Ada says:

    Hi Tabs and Karen! My cat is named Squirt. When we first got him as a 2 month old, he would just sit on the dark carpet and we couldn’t see him. When we tried to pick him up, he would just ‘squirt’ away, hence the name.

  225. Nina says:

    I love Tabs because I am a crazy cat lady. 🙂

  227. Sylvie says:

    After 3 years of wearing my hair wavy, I decided to wear it straight. It was a last minute decision, I was getting it permed again on Saturday when after they’d applied the cream to my hair that breaks the chemical bonds in them, I saw my hair straight and I realised I haven’t seen that in a long time. So I decided to ditch the perm for a straightening and figured that if I don’t like it, I’ll just perm it again in a few months. I’m still trying to get used to this look. I look younger but I feel much less sexy! It’s weird how people with wavy hair want stick-straight hair and people with straight hair want wavy hair.

  252. Aya says:

    Loved all the pics! Each one a classic… I personally like the subtle(?) Urban Decay poster.

    My cat Momo was not named after the word meaning peach in Japanese, but rather after the title character of Michael Ende’s book, Momo (orig. in German; he’s the author of Never Ending Story, though the two books are very different in style). In the book, Momo saves the world by reclaiming the “time” people lost to a “time-banking” scam. Sort of a cautionary tale about people not taking time for each other (and ourselves) anymore.

    Hope everyone has a lovely week <3

  253. I currently have 4 cats living with me- 2 are “ours”, 2 are visiting long term…Bean was named after a characted in the book Ender’s Game, since they were both tiny, down-trodden runts. BTW, Bean turned out to be a Maine coon, so he’s now the size of a raccoon!

    Poe wad found stuck in a hole in our wall, and so was named after the macabe author who used this device.

    My visitors just arrived a few weeks ago, and have caused plenty of confusion in the household with their names. One is ‘Bea’, the other Lily- which also happens to be my 2 1/2 year old daughter’s name!

    I have a gunmetal grey (except for a white heart on her chest) Behemoth Cat named Pantha that’s about the same size as your Tabs. She’s currently investigating a box my parents sent me some books in, because it has Smells and is apparently highly relevant to her interests. Unfortunately for her, fifteen pound yard long cats don’t fit into the medium size pack-and-ship box that the Post Office sells.

  277. My cats name is Sadie–she is so funny! We call her the “flopper” b/c she’ll walk into a room and just flop down on her side. She also will sometimes be a cobra and run across the room on her hind legs only–she’s a weirdo but we loe her mucho!!

    Hi Karen! What a fun giveaway and I love Tabs!! Tabs has the best taste, I would love to share a beauty closet with “her”, she has all the goods!!

    I am actually cat sitting for my two favorite kitties, Fifi and Charkey. They are not liking me too much, they are spoiled by their real mother, my friend, who is on a week’s vacation and the cats basically want nothing to do with me……I feed them all their favorite foods, and still they show me no love, I am hoping in a few days they will warm up to me more cuz I adore cats, actually all pets!

    We have 2 dogs, Max and Lucy, our black labs and I am so used to their constant interaction it’s hard when Fifi and Charkey don’t want me to pet them, etc……

    Maybe if I bring over some MAC and Smashbox products they will warm up to me, hey, now there’s an idea, they are definitely diva-licious!!

    Thanks so much for the chance to enter. I’m also following you on twitter and tweeting, I’m @joannaonthelake

  285. Dina says:

    Ohhh I’m in love with Tabs the cat and absolutely adore your post. The pictures are fabulous! Very creative and extra cute. Tabs is so lucky to have you. 🙂

    My girl cats Trinny and Philly have a crush on Tabs. They like chubby tabby cats. 🙂

    Hi Tabs, Thanks for this. My kitties Cassie & Pete would love to to buy some Catnip, or makeup for my Mom!!

  289. jsg says:

    i had no idea Tabs has SUCH a busy schedule! Has he changed now he’s a feline super-star? Or does he keep his paws on the ground? Here’s to Tabs,-keepin’ it real!

  290. Tiffany S. says:

    Tabs is adorable!

  291. Jules says:

    My cat got his name in a rather long, roundabout manner… Let’s just say he started off his kitten-hood being called Blinky and it slowly evolved into Noodles. LOL! 🙂

  292. Audrey H. says:

    I always like the Tabs posts, makes your day sound relaxing. Tabs & makeup, can’t go wrong. Thanks for saving up to treat your readers, Tabs! 🙂

    I have to say…those modeling shoots are FANTASTIC! I love seeing them~ they make me kind of jealous, too.

  295. Elana says:

    BTW-Tokodoki harness-real or not?

    Would love to get 1 4 my roscoe….


  296. Mrs. Kinne says:

    I love when Tabs makes an appearance, because I am, without a doubt, a crazy cat lady. Mr. Kinne reminds me that when we have actual babies, I can no longer tell our cat Barney that he is my “best baby.”

  299. Jadelyn says:

    That cat is ridonkulously adorable. I miss having cats! My ex had a cranky, elderly Siamese who was also the snuggliest cat I’ve ever known. As in, she’d get on your lap, make herself comfortable, and proceed to yell at you, in that particular shrill Siamese voice, if you dared to move before she was ready to get up.

    Hi Karen,

    I visit your blog daily and wanted you to know that it brightens my day. Although I’m not a cat person, Tabs has grown on me and I actual look forward to Tabs post.


  309. BeckBeck says:

    My fiance and I just agreed to adopt a cat named Patches – but I have no idea who named her that or why, because she’s not patchy at all. She looks like a slightly more petite, darker Tabs!

  310. Brittany says:

    I love your blog – I’m definitely a makeup fiend crazy cat lady too…Beast and Gizmo aren’t half as fab as Tabs though 😛

    Karen, I’m wearing my Grateful Life tie-dyed t-shirt from Stanford Blood Center. Has Tabs considered tie-dying his fur? XXOO

  314. Jessica-Lily says:

    My little black cat’s name is Bruce Springsteen! The BF and I had decided we wanted a cat named Bruce Springsteen even before we got him, but it suits him! He’s got such a rock star attitude.

  317. Princess Tina says:

    Hi Karen……..Thanks for this awesome giveaway. I’ve been following your blog for about 10 days now. I am so wanting to do a guest post. Can you please email me some hints about what to write about? I had a cool weekend……out for dinner on both Sat & Sun night. I simply LOVE make up, I am so passionate about it, that I even dream about it. Now what do you say about that?!! Thanks so much for doing this lovely blog and I am addicted! Take care.

  318. Amelia says:

    I’ve been following this blog religiously for about a month now, but have never left a comment until now. Tabs is the most gorgeous kitty I have ever seen, and should get mega props for his modeling talent!
    My own tabby, Oscar DeVito King of Denmark, was named so creatively because my father wanted to name a cat Oscar, but I insisted that he was more of a Denmark. His previous owners (he was a shelter kitty) named him Vito, so we tacked that on in a more elegant form. Tabby love! <3

  319. Tina says:

    ahh tabs is cute:)

  320. Stacey says:

    I completely adore Tabs! I just love seeing him on your blog..added bonus! 🙂

    I’ve always loved the story of how you and Tabs met. It’s like he adopted you, not the other way around.

  324. Sandra says:

    I wish my cat was friends with Tabs : )

  325. Joseph G. says:

    I always get excited whenever I see new pics of Tabs. My cat died recently and is the same color as Tabs.. sad sad sad.. Anyhooo, I got a new one and he’s name is “Lucky”. Wanna know why? Here in PI, people say that when a male cats have 3 colors, then its very unusual and should be considered lucky, hence the name.. LOL… By the way I love Chanel Lift Lumiere foundation and Shiseido Perfect Smoothing powder foundation! Can’t wait to buy them online! =)

  326. Tamara says:

    love your blog and I love FroYo! 🙂

  327. My mother-in-law is a pharmacist did a short segment on the flu and kids being healthy in school for a local TV station, and I got to do her makeup!! That was the highlight of my day! Back to my boring day job tomorrow. =/

    I’m in love with Tabs, been reading your blog since *before* he came around, wow! He’s a wonderful addition and I’m only *slightly* prejudiced in the way of striped cats! Thanks for the best of!

  329. Goldie says:

    your blog brings my two passions together, cats and makeup. Tabs is such a hansome fellow. My little female tabby, Peanut, has quite a crush on Tabs and looks forward to Sundays more than me!!

  330. Valentine says:

    I like that Tabs is fierce (in the Tyra Banks, not wild animal, way), yet approachable.

    Aww tabs is so cute and photogenic! <33

    Hi Karen,

    There’s no other blog like yours. You’re really creative and I love Sundays with Tabs!

  335. Lisa says:

    My kitty Rambo (who looks a lot like Tabs!) was named by the first people who had him, but apparently was named after the movie character. He’s kind of crazy though, so it fits.

  336. Instant Karma (formerly L) says:

    100 Sundays with Tabs! That’s amazing. It always makes me happy to see Tigger’s long-lost cousin. 😀

    Someone dumped my cat as a 6 week old kitten and she showed up sitting in my horse feed trough in his hay. She was about the cutest little thing I’d ever seen and there was no way I couldn’t keep her. We’ve been together a good 4 years.

    Tabs is such a cutie patootie! LOVE the urban decay urban lash graphic 😀 I’ve scoped out their new lash collection & fell in love with a bunch of the styles. I’ve been meaning to buy a pair or two. Thanks for reminding me! Hehe.

    My baby dogs are: Lexi, Zeus, & Scooter. I bet they would love to meet Tabs one day 🙂

    Love your blog! It caters to my every needs: makeup and cats!! (The BF won’t allow kitties in our home (yet)… but i’m working on it!)

  350. Ditte K. says:

    My cat got his name, Fart, because he farted to get away from hugs when he was a kitten 🙂 He is still able to do it now – he’s 10 years old. And not too old to chase his own tail 😉

  351. L says:

    Entering, and crossing my fingers…

    Tabs’ story was interesting – how did you found out that he was a stray cat and not just taking time off his previous home? 🙂

  352. Liz Diaz says:

    Don’t have any pets but Tabs could definately “Rock The Runway’! Thanks for the giveaway!

  353. Lowelli says:

    Love how BIG Tabs is! My cat, Moose, seems to have a very large, fish fillet shaped body but with the same size head as when she was a kitten. VERY strange…..but mostly funny. 🙂

  354. Deb says:

    I love all your Tabs art! He is quite photogenic.

    Awww, thanks Tabs, you’re so generous!
    I have a cat named Oscar because I climbed into a dumpster to rescue him as a kitten. He was very ill and one of my neighbors put him into the dumpster to die! 🙁 So sad. Anyway, now about 7 years later he’s fat- a 17lb double thumbed cat- and very happy. Horray!

  366. Linnea says:

    Pepper got her name because her nose was the shade of freshly ground/cracked pepper. she’s a tabby just like Tabs! (and also fussy!)

    Hiya! My 3 cats are named Felix, Pepper and Inky. Their names came from the way they look!

    This is one of my first visits to this blog and I’m totally a loyal follower now! Tabs is adorable and would love mac’s fabulous felines 😉 – seems much more cooperative than my aunt’s kitty who I visited this week- she would run away whenever I tried to pet her :p

  370. Henley says:

    Thanks for the giveaway

  371. Dao says:

    I read your blog, saw Tabs, and wanted to have a cat. At that time, I lived in an upstairs apartment with a roommate so cats were out of the question. A few weeks after moving into my current place, I saw a stripped kitty that looks a lot like Tabs walking around in the parking lot. I pet him and gave him toast with butter. That was more than a year and a half ago. Now, Belly and I are going strong thanks to you and Tabs.

    Tabs is one good looking kitty and I have a kitty that has almost identical personalities to him. He’s very dramatic but I love him to pieces. You turn a regular normal beauty blog by amping it up with loads of humour and tabs. 😀 I look forward to reading your posts everyday!

  375. Jessica says:

    It literally always makes my day when i see Tabs posing he is sooooo cute!! I just want to climb through the computer screen and pet him all day long. If i could i would take him on a shopping spree and to a masseuse. Best kitty ever besides my three darling cats 🙂

  376. suzieduck says:

    i love to see photoes of you and Tabs together, espicially when he’s sleeping on you and cuddling. my cat never does that. i’m jealous. love your blog.

  383. Anna says:

    I have three cats: Lex, Loki, and Vladimir. Loki was named because he’s mischievous, Lex because my sister liked the way it sounded, and Vladimir because I think he looks like he belongs in Russia with his pretty long fur and icy blue eyes.

  384. olivia says:

    It’s great that you made this contest, it’s going to be great 😀
    I love Tabs, you’re little commercial pictures make me smile everytime I see them.
    Sadly, I don’t have any animal, but my mom is allergic to cats and we don’t have space for a dog… But when Im older Im definitely getting a cat 🙂
    I love the Venomous Villains collection, and I don’t have a lot of mac so I will splurge on this collection!

    I just love how you find such creative ways to express your love for your kitty! Do you photoshop all these yourself? I would love to do something like that for my cat ichigo!
