Do you guys read Feline Vogue? It’s considered the fashion and beauty bible for couture-minded kitties. Anywho, you may have noticed that Tabs was recently profiled in the latest issue. Here’s an excerpt from his Q&A questionnaire…

Need to Meet Tabs the Cat

Tabs the Cat made a name for himself on the catwalks of Mill Valley, New York, Paris and Milan, but this month he takes the leap into film in Kittyballs, the new blockbuster hit about the cats who revolutionized the plus-size kitty modeling game.

FV: What’s one thing most people don’t know about you?

TABS: I’m absolutely mad about plaid. I love it on collars, bow ties, kitty legwarmers — everything! It’s crazy, I know. I blame my love for it on my adoptive dad, who’s part Irish.

FV: Any scars?

TABS: I have a chip in my right ear from a fight years ago when I was a kitten living on the streets. It was a rough way to grow up, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything. The street smarts I learned back then prepared me for the cat-eat-cat world of runway modeling.

FV: What are you most proud of?

TABS: Wow, that’s a tough question. I’m glad that in an industry rife with backstabbing and competition I’ve been able to hold my head high and always say that I took the high road (a lesson learned from my mentor, the fabulous Tim Gunn). I’m also proud that I made it from the ground up. Literally from just one or two inches off the ground. I didn’t know anybody in fashion when I started, but I persevered, even when they called me “too husky.”

FV: Your best vacation ever?

TABS: Lake Como. I spent two entire weeks there at my villa next to the water last year doing nothing but napping and mousing. It was glorious.

FV: Wake up thinking about?

TABS: Fancy Feast in gravy. Or what I’m going to wear that day. Or new ways to torture my assistant.

FV: What’s your hidden talent?

TABS: Believe it or not, despite not having opposable thumbs, I’m pretty good at knitting. I even founded a stitch-n-bitch group!

    Tabs, my cat Sammy is a husky fashionista. She enjoyed learning more about you.

    • Tabs says:

      Tell Sammy what up for me, Danni. What kind of kitty is she? Is she looking into breaking into plus-size feline modeling? There’s plenty of room at the top!

  7. Wow, I’ve never even noticed the little chip on his ear before. Tabs is so gangsta with his street cred. ;)

    Tabs! Another fabulous interview! What’s Tim Gunn like in person?

    Tigger and Gizmo send their love, and the kittens were wondering if you could autograph a can of Fancy Feast for them.
