Sundays with Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 144

Tabs for the MAC Bloggers' Obsessions Collection

Tabs does most of his blogging late at night because, he says, he likes to create in silence. Sometimes I’ll hear him from bed, his little paws click-clacking away at the keyboard downstairs.


He has a few feline colleagues/friends that he regularly communicates with primarily through his blog,, which is now mostly dedicated to cat fashion do’s and don’ts, although he also writes occasionally about life in the fast-paced kitty modeling world.

He says his blog is now more of a networking tool than anything else, and so it was a big surprise to hear from MAC Cosmetics the other day about the upcoming MAC Bloggers’ Obsessions Collection (coming June 21). He couldn’t believe his kitty ears when they said they wanted to include him among the bloggers in the release as a late addition.

Needless to say, he was beyond thrilled! His color, Runway Tabby, is a light shimmery lavender eyeshadow inspired by his favorite purple flowers in the front yard.

When the collection drops this Tuesday, be sure to check it out online. 🙂

Before you go, here are some highlights from Tabs’ kitty modeling portfolio this week.

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’d be interested about the name choices for the eyeshadows in the Tabs Blogger’s Obsession collection :D… (why do I have the feeling one of the colors would be called Gravy???)

  4. Sarahc says:

    That Dior Savannah Cat one is so hawt! Those things are huge, you know? Savannah cats can get up to 35 pounds! They’re also illegal in some states.

  7. Joyce says:

    Please tell me you did not photoshop the Dior palette because I am dying to get my hands on it!

    By the way, have you seen the Dior Mitzah Palette? The Mitzah compact should have been designed like the one you have above.

  9. Hi Tabs! We have a grey tabby cat who’s as cute as you. His name is Tu’sha and he would love to play with you. 🙂

    The Savannah Cat collection is gorgeous – the designer really captured the essence of its inspiration. Can’t wait to see Runaway Tabs – always looking for that perfect lavendar. Thank you Tabs for your continued dedication for we humanoids. Off to work – enjoy your 18 hrs of sleep (my collie can sleep for 19) lol!

  11. Sarah says:

    Your sundays with tabs posts are my fave. I have a cat too, and we love picturing him doing him human things (driving cars, ripping cigarette butts, etc). So I LOVE reading these.

    Hi Karen, do you know when the sale goes live? I’ve been reloading the MAC website, but still nothing. Maybe I’ll read your post again to double check for any info I may have missed…

    • Karen says:

      Hi Rosemary,

      Word on the street is noon. I’ll let you know as soon as I know!

      • Rosemary says:

        Just checked the website and recv’d the email stating the sale is now available, but the site is freezing and doesn’t show the list of products. Guess MAC is still updating their site to host the collection.
