Sundays with Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 132

Published in: Just For Fun

Dear Diary,


Lately, I’ve been thinking more and more about my next career moves. Being an international runway/print model’s been a great gig, but let’s be real — looks have a limited shelf life.

I suppose if I get really desperate I could always launch a celebrity fragrance, but seriously, that’s so played out. And, truth be told, I’d miss being in front of a live audience.

So, in an effort to prepare myself for the inevitable, I’ve been developing one of my hidden talents — singing.

I’ve been secretly taking voice lessons from Celine and Mariah, and last month I even did a 12-city tour of small clubs across the country. Nothing elaborate, just some jazz standards and a live three-piece cat band, but the performances were met with a lot of positive response.

Next month I’m heading into the studio to lay down some tracks. We’ll see where it goes. Shoot, if Gwyneth can do it…

I remain cautiously optimistic.

In other news, since it’s officially spring, I’ve decided to update my wardrobe.

This pearls and tweed ensemble is called my “Ode to Coco.”

I haven’t worn my mother’s pearls in ages, and getting into them was, um, a little more difficult than I expected.

I had to bulk up to prepare for my role in the upcoming Fast and the Furious sequel opposite Vin Diesel. My assistant snickered the entire time and offered to rub me down with Crisco (b*tch!), but I got the pearls on without her help, so there.

Anywho, gotta run. I just got a text from SJP. She’s eying a new pair of Loubs and needs my expert opinion.


P.S. Oh, kinda random, but do you like my new Shu Uemura lash curler?

A few weeks ago my assistant lost hers and had the audacity to blame its disappearance on me. The nerve!

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). 🙂

  1. Awww! Tabs, I know you are probably whisker deep in groupies, but I just wanted to say, I LOOOOOOOVE YOU TABS! You rock my world!

    I think Tabs should start his singing career with a guest stint on “Glee” – Sue Sylvester needs a cat, stat!

    Also, he looks fabulous in the pearls. Tres chic!

    What we really want to know, is does Tabs Botox or not? We know Tabs doesn’t go for lipo, but what is his stance on freshing up? It is a brutal business.

  4. Heidi says:

    Since Missy is a rocker at heart, she’d like to hear what Tabs can do with “Stray Cat Strut” and “Cat Scratch Fever.”

  5. Tatiana Jarquin says:

    Never stop being so glamourous Tabs! I’m your biggest fan! 😉

  6. Tracy says:

    I am so jealous of your pearls Tabs! Were you nice enough to buy Karen the new Shu Lash curler? That’s very nice of you spooling her like like that! 😉
