Do you believe in the power of positive thinking? Lately I’ve been practicing my positive affirmations, and I really think they help. The trick I like to use is to phrase things as if I’m doing them right now in the present. I’ll say things like, “I’m preparing Tabs’ gravy exactly the way he likes it,” or “I’m making good use of my time,” or “I’m having a great run.” And I’ll repeat each one to myself like a mantra as I visualize the successful completion of each task.
Unsurprisingly, the only ones that haven’t been working are the ones pertaining to Tabs. This morning I made him a can of Fancy Feast tuna in gravy for brunch because I was too lazy to do it last night (he did still have plenty of dry food in his bowl though), and to protest what I’m sure he perceives as substandard living conditions, he bit my ankle in the kitchen.
This week he was busy doing his kitty modeling thing, so we didn’t see each other very much. He shot campaigns for MAC, NARS and Dolce & Gabbana, among others.
Who is Tabs the Cat? About three years ago I befriended a stray, flea-bitten tabby cat with a bad case of worms. I could see he’d fallen on hard times, but his profound knowledge of high fashion and department store cosmetics led me to believe that he was more than meets the eye. We became fast friends, and now he’s actually my boss (and a successful kitty model).
Here are the most recent pics from his portfolio.
