Sundays with Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 111

Published in: Just For Fun

Dear Diary,


I’m so furious right now — FURIOUS!

What’s that old saying? Something like, if you want something done right, you gotta do it yourself? Well, I told my good-for-nothing assistant WEEKS ago that for Halloween this year I wanted to dress up as Lady Gaga.

I was thinking either a bubble dress or big Coke can curls like in the Telephone video, and I told my assistant to “get on it” last month.

Per usual, she waited till the last minute, and now I’m stuck with this stupid yellow submarine.

She actually said, “I found the perfect costume for you!” Really?

I mean, how hard is it to find a Lady Gaga costume for a cat? It’s called the Internet, woman!

And you know I’m pretty sure this thing was made for a dog. Yup, just keeps gettin’ better.

Now I have to model with this ridiculous pumpkin next to me, which I can’t even eat.

I can’t work under these conditions…

Happy frickin’ Halloween.


P.S. Are you watching The Walking Dead tonight? I’m watching it now. Imagine waking up to find out that basically all of feline-kind has been wiped out. Yeah, no thanks!

I’ve been watching a lot of apocalyptic stuff lately, and I’m getting kinda freaked out.

      Hi Anita,

      He was NOT thrilled about it, LOL!

      What did you do for Halloween?

      • anita says:

        I think Halloween would be more fun if it wasn’t that cold. LOL!
        My boyfriend & I went trick or treating with his little brother on Halloween night and oh gosh….it was like 37degrees! (From possibly 60 during the day). But, we still had some fun though. We pick out the bad candy from the good candy and whoever lost in game of Chinese poker has to eat a piece of the bad candy! HAHA! That was the best part of the night!

        How was your Halloween? πŸ™‚

    That is so awesome! Of course, now I’ll have the song stuck in my head for days.

    I thought of you at the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear yesterday — there were zombies holding Zombies for Education Reform signs. There was also a sign that said The only thing we have to fear is fear itself…and zombies.

    • Karen says:

      OH yeah. I want “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself… and zombies” on a bumper sticker.

      Do you have AMC? The new zombie show, The Walking Dead, is on tonight.

      • steph b says:

        They have become so quick to cancel shows and I watch a few, get invested, and am then pissed off when it is canceled with all sorts of loose ends. So now I record a few episodes and wait to see if it looks like the show has a chance before I watch.

        • Karen says:

          I see. We’ll, you’ll be happy to know this has already been renewed for a second season! And only one ep has aired. Apparently some higher ups thought it was good enough to keep going…

          I hope it doesn’t go the way of Heroes and self destruct!

  4. Terri says:

    Even though he doesn’t looked thrilled, I’m impressed that you were able to get him to wear a costume. He looks adorable (if a bit peeved :)).

    • Karen says:

      Hi Terri,

      I had to make some modifications to get him in it! I should’ve went a size up, LOL! πŸ™‚

      How was your Halloween? Did you rock a special makeup look?

  5. Ashley says:

    Awww Tabs! I think Tabs would look great in a meat suit.. or maybe a cat food can suit. Very Lady Gaga like πŸ˜€

  6. Heidi says:

    Poor Tabs! I wouldn’t dare try to put a costume on Missy. She pitches a fit whenever I have to put a new collar on her.

    True story: the first year we had her, Missy came wandering into the house carrying something pink and fuzzy in her mouth. Upon closer inspection it turns out it was some sort of dog outfit, about the size that would fit a chihuahua! I have no idea where or how she obtained this, but ever since she will move it around at various locations in the house during the middle of the night: in front of my bed, in the hallway, etc. I have no idea what she’s trying to communicate when she does this. Cats are cray cray!

    • knownever says:

      I totally hear you on this. My cat was never very loud until we got her this one ball that she feels compelled to yowl at all night. If you run downstairs to try to catch her in the act (of hunting it? humping it? we can’t be sure) she’s sitting there demurely, totally still next to the ball not even looking at it. Pretending as if nothing has been going on.

  7. Amy says:

    Oh man walking dead was so good! You’ve got to read the comic too! It is bad ass

  9. Amee says:

    Happy Halloween dear πŸ™‚

  10. Fieran says:

    Awww, Tabs looks so cute. Grouchy but cute. He can be the Cat version of Oscar the Grouch πŸ™‚ I’ve never been a fan of cats, I usually prefer cute little puppies but Tabs is growing on me.

  11. Nina says:

    tabs wasnt very pleased … but omg he looks freakin’ adorableeeee!!!!

  12. gio says:

    Aww. Even if Tabs wasn’t very happy about the costume, he still looks so adorable!

  14. Kim says:

    That’s fantastic! I don’t know how you get Tabs to cooperate, but it’s great! πŸ™‚ If I had tried to dress my kitties up for Halloween, I would have been going as an ER Patient.

  15. Ruchita says:

    Aww, Tabs looks so cute! πŸ™‚ There is a stray kitty that’s been coming around our house lately and he looks a lot like Tabs.

  16. Karen B says:

    Dear Tabs,
    I think you look absolutely wonderful. My soft spot for the Beatles might have something to do with that but still… πŸ˜‰

  22. applepark says:

    Oh Tabs! You are my hero bc my cats would NOT put up with that at all. There would definitely be mutiny!

    I am psyched to see Walking Dead. Hubby and I are fans of any sort of zombie.

    I didn’t know it was possible to look both super adorable and super sad at the same time, but you pulled it off, Tabs.

    Karen, you just made my day! Tabs dressed up as the yellow submarine! I’m sure Tabs digs the Beatles. Tigger actually will tap his tail to the beat of some classic rock (he seems to sustain it the longest to the Rolling Stones).

  25. Alexandra says:

    Awwww Tabs you look seriously annoyed. My kitties think you rock πŸ™‚

  26. Antonia says:

    I love the yellow submarine dress! I should really get one for my dog, plus, he really fancies clothes!
