Sundays with Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 122

Published in: Just For Fun

Even Tabs has bad hair days

Poor Tabs had a pretty bootsy week. It rained a lot here, so he never got to go outside except to go to his Bikram yoga class. And now he’s moping around the house and tearin’ sh*t up.


This is sort of random, but did I ever tell you about the time he opened for Whitesnake? Yeah, Bieber canceled on them, which really put them in a bind, and since Tabs happened to be in town that weekend, he rushed down to the Filmore in San Francisco for the show. Yup, it was all very exciting and marked a major milestone in his entertainment career. 🙂

He even got to sing one of his favorite songs. Of course, he made some minor changes to the lyrics.

Musical notes “Here Tabs Goes Again”, The Whitesnake Remix

He’s just another cat in need of rescue,
Waitin’ on love’s sweet charity
An he’s gonna hold on
For the rest of his days,
‘Cos he knows what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams

An’ here Tabs goes again on his own
Goin’ down the only road Tabs’ ever known
Like a drifter Tabs was born to walk alone
An’ he’s made up his mind
He ain’t wasting no more time…

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 some other things you may not know about Tabs. He…

Started a stitch ‘n’ bitch group with the neighborhood cats

Made it to the final four in season 7 of Top Chef

Loves the look of a black liner along the waterline

Is currently obsessed with Kate Spade’s spring shoes

Has repeatedly denied any involvement in “The Christmas Tree Incident”

Is in the process of developing his own line of accessories

Teaches breakdancing to elementary school children on the weekends

Hates modeling with others

Has been clinically diagnosed as a narcissist

Man, I just love that song… “An’ here Tabs goes again on his own, goin’ down the only road Tabs’ ever known!”

Have yourself a great night, young lady. See you soon. 🙂

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    Tabs’ eyeliner is PURRFECT. He needs to do a tutorial on how to perfectly define one’s waterline.

  3. Tracy says:

    HAHAHAHA I can’t believe you wrote lyrics about Tabs to that song—wait—-yes I can!
    So AWESOME! Except now I’m gonna be singing ” An’ here Tabs goes again on his own
    Goin’ down the only road Tabs’ ever known” all night! Love it!

    Hahahaha I’m pretty sure ALL cats would be clinically diagnosed as narcissists… if they would ever bother to see a therapist in the first place, because really, they’re all just too damn hot for that kind of thing, don’tchaknow.

  5. Heidi says:

    Missy’s on my lap reading this, and when she gets to the part about the Christmas Tree Incident, she mutters something that sounds remarkably like “deny, deny, deny, my friend!”

  6. Ashley says:

    I need to join a stitch n b*tch group! I can’t stitch but there’s tonnes of the other stuff I can do!

    Sweet shoes! And this from someone who basically only wears sneakers! 🙂

    Yeah, they’re all towing that party line regarding Christmas tree incidents!

    PS It’s minus 15 degrees here this AM. Just thought I’d share. Sorry, for all our international comment readers, that’s Fahrenheit. Brrrrrr…

  15. Alka says:

    OMG those shoes are totally gorgeous but also totally LOVE the slouchy cabled hat that Tabs is sporting in the first pic…did he knit it? If so will he share his pattern?

  16. Mel says:

    Kittehs are the best! I love practicing picture taking on my boys – they’re so camera ready!

  17. Nina says:

    i totally heart the narcissist pic!

  18. Neh says:

    This is hysterical!

  19. Milka says:

    Tabs is sooo strikingly cute! Love the CATLINER and the yoga/break-dance pose!

  20. Vicki says:

    Tabs is most definitely too cool for school.

    My cat looks a lot like him but even leaving apart their size (she is small, my dad calls her the pocket rocket), you can tell she is a girl and he is a boy. Or maybe I am just imagining that bit!

  21. Virginia says:

    I should have known you were a knitter!

  22. mkdallas says:

    Is it wrong that although I read your blog every single day and enjoy every swatch & review thoroughly, Tabs is my most favorite feature on here? If lovin’ him is wrong, I don’t wanna be right!

  23. Sarah says:

    Wow Tabs! There is so much I am still learning about you! Do you cook for your Mom since you did make it to the final 4 on Top Chef? you must have impressive cooking skills. How do you do it without opposable thumbs?

    Your biggest fan!

  26. Emily says:

    Very cute pet! =] I enjoy the random cute cat pictures – I’m in awe of how he allows you to put a hat on him, my friend’s cat would scratch me if I tried (and I’ve tried before lmao).

  28. Instant Karma (formerly L) says:

    LOLLLL the “has been clinically diagnosed as a narcissist” is amazing. I think that’s true for just about any cat. In fact, just a couple hours ago, someone asked me what mental health issue Aisha is most likely to have, and my response was “narcissistic personality disorder.” 😀

  29. elwoods17 says:

    Haha! Thanks for the laugh Karen (and Tabs)!
