Sundays with Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 130

Published in: Just For Fun

Tabs for the Benefit Feline Brow Kit

It’s weird, but in the kitty modeling world, right after the Academy Awards, there’s always a lull that lasts about a week. Apparently, after all of the red carpet coverage and after parties, many of the top photographers in the biz take a few days off to recoup. It makes sense, I guess. But things are starting to pick up again, and Tabs had a few new jobs this week.


As a matter of fact, here’s a look at his portfolio of recent work. Oh — and if you think of any cool campaigns you think he should do, let him know in the comments. There’s a lot of competition out there, but he can pretty much get any job that he wants. πŸ™‚

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).

    I love my stray cat/boss too. Especially liked the smashbox ad πŸ™‚

    • Tabs says:

      Kitties rule! How long have you been living with your stray cat/boss?

      Love ya,

      • Peggy says:

        Oh, it’s been about a decade now. I am happy to treat her like a princess because life as a stray is rough!

        • Karen says:

          I hear ya! Tabs definitely falls into the spoiled kitty camp. πŸ™‚

          Did you get her from a shelter? Tabs was wandering around our neighborhood when he decided to stay with us permanently.

          • Peggy says:

            Nope, she was a tough NYC street cat! It was pretty amazing actually. She was in the middle of the street at night in the rain. I saw her from my car, picker her up with no fuss, and took her home. I guess our cats chose us πŸ™‚

          • Karen says:

            That is pretty amazing. She was probably really happy to have finally found her human. πŸ™‚ Kudos to you for giving a stray a home!

  5. Heidi says:

    WANT the Tabby Tangerine lipstick!

  6. Jenn says:

    The Illamasqua Tabby Toxic “Tail” has made my day — nay, my WEEK.

    As incredibly handsome as Orlando Bloom is, the Hugo Boss people missed a trick not recruiting Tabs for their latest ad campaign.

  10. karo says:

    Tabby Toxic is the best.

    They should make a LUSH range of products inspired by Tabs. He’d be their lucky charm.

  13. Tracy says:

    Being a well-trained cat slave myself, and a champion of all things feline, these make my Sunday, lol! Tabs is proof that glasses are not always nerdy! πŸ˜‰

  14. Nina says:

    i <3 the smashbox one …

    cats + boxes = cute overload!

  15. Gina says:

    I didn’t know you met Tabs as a stray! That’s so sweet. I found my kitty as a stray also! I think strays make the best feline companions πŸ˜€ And I love the Givenchy one–Tabs has got a little junk in the trunk, huh? Hahah soooo cute!

    • Karen says:

      Yup! He was about a year old when he first decided to adopt us and still very kitten-ish. I wish I could’ve known him when he was a teeny, tiny baby cat though. πŸ™‚

      How long have you had your kitty?

      • Gina says:

        We’ve had my cat for 6 years now! She’s still very tiny, too (although since it’s winter, she’s rocking a pretty chubby belly). My mom found her as a kitten–in a dumpster! And decided she was too sweet to leave behind. It still makes me laugh, picturing my mother feeling so bad for a kitten, that she’d jump into a dumpster–in heels!–and help her out.

  16. Megan says:

    I don’t know which I love most–the Givenchy one for the colors and giant tangerine, or the Smashbox one (because it’s ever cat’s paradise). My Pepper cat votes for Smashbox. πŸ™‚

    • Karen says:

      Aww, Pepper! πŸ™‚ Does she (he?) jump into any and every cardboard box within striking distance?

      • Megan says:

        Oh she does. Absolutely. She likes to curl up in them. If I happen to move a box, or (the horror) try to toss one out, she hops in, and looks at me as if to say, “My box. Not your box. MINE.”

        And who can say no to a kitty face like that?

        • Karen says:

          I know I can’t. Tabs is the same way. He also does the same thing with laundry baskets! He’s super obsessed with them. πŸ™‚

          How long have you been Pepper’s human?

  17. Ranyah says:

    tabs, you always make my day! πŸ™‚

  18. DalaLuz says:

    I love these posts! Everybody needs a little Tabs in their day πŸ™‚

  19. LC says:

    Sundays with Tabs always makes me smile!

  20. Instant Karma (formerly L) says:

    LOL, I love the catbox collection. Tigger also loves cardboard boxes. Then again, I think just about every cat does.

  21. Sarah says:

    Love the Smashbox ad. My cats (Cara and Besa) love boxes. Cara will even try to dig her way in if there is a lid on. πŸ˜‰
