Sundays with Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 119

Published in: Just For Fun

Dear Diary,


Before I get into the drama-dy that was Christmas 2010, can I just take a moment to bask in the glory of my modeling skills? Observe the evidence: the centerfold pic from my last photo shoot, which I took for the cover of People magazine when they named me “World’s Sexiest Tabby of 2010.”

See how I skillfully raise my paws? The nonchalant look of disinterest and the artful placement of my whiskers? It takes a lot of work to look this hot.

People just don’t seem to get that my life isn’t all jet setting and cat walking; I have to make critical decisions EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. Take, for instance, my holiday plans (or lack thereof).

JF (that’s James Franco to you) asked me to hang with him and his buddies in Aspen this Christmas. I really wanted to break in my new snowboard and those Louis Vuitton boots (ya know, the ones with the fur?) I picked up in Paris a few months ago, but due to my assistant’s usual incompetence, I was stuck here in the Bay Area. She couldn’t find a first class flight out of SFO in time, and, you know, I soooo don’t do coach.

It was royally annoying, but one thing that perked me up was this awesome present from my grandparents:

I call them Lolo and Lola, which means “grandfather” and “grandmother” in Tagalog, their native tongue (for the record, I’m half Filipino).

Despite being stuck in the ‘burbs yesterday, all in all, this was a pretty good Christmas. As a matter of fact, I’ve been in such a great mood that I let my assistant hug me for a full two minutes…

…before scratching the crap out of her flabby arm, you know, to show her who’s boss, haha!

    My cat Trinny wants you to give her your pawtograph. You look handsome and your assistant looks especially pretty in front of the Christmas tree! πŸ™‚

    P.S. Your assistant does not have flabby arms.

  3. Heidi says:

    Awww…. Tabs. Glad you got some pleasure out of the holiday! Missy is reading this from my lap, and nodding in agreement over the “incompetent assistant” part. I have NO IDEA who she could be thinking of! ; )

  4. saku says:

    Oh Tabs, he’s a handsome beast! Tabs looks a lot like my cat only more black stripes and fluffier than my baby Java(:

  7. AS says:

    Tabs knows he’s way above average in the looks department. I heard Peter Beard was touting Tabs’ 1/2 Philippine leopard cat ancestry.

  10. Aracely says:

    Oh Tabs I wish my cats had the fashion sense to wear a red bow and rock it versus them looking like they are being tortured

  11. Radhika says:

    Tabs…I Love youuuuuuuuuuuu….:) πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ OMG…You are replying!!!! πŸ˜€

  12. Ithfifi says:

    You should tell your assistant she is ver nifty with the camera, lovely shots! πŸ˜›

  13. Nina says:

    wow tabs — your present from your grandparents is just plain awesomesauce (or awesomegravy) … πŸ™‚

    great loot!

  14. Jen Meade says:

    Tabs, you are a handsome devil. I’m glad you got suitable tributes for Christmas, even though that CLEARLY won’t make up for your assistant’s ineptitude. I think it’s clear that the first three letters in “assistant” are there for a reason.

  15. Lucie says:

    Tabs is such a handsome cat! My tabby, Oscar, says hi.

  16. Markina says:

    All I can say is Tabs is a hot mess.

    Tabs in Filipino slang is short for “taba” which is cute for chubby :. love your blog. I’ve been following your suggestions as we both have the same Filipina coloring :> Happy holidays !!

  22. Michele DiCola says:

    Hello Tabs,
    Merry Christmas; I know you have some Filipino in you: you speak Tagalog.
