Sundays with Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 163

Tabs for MAC Paint Pot in Ice Cream Sandwich

What a close call! Tabs almost didn’t make it home in time for Halloween because of an unscheduled business trip. He flew down to San Diego early Sunday morning to help out a photographer friend of his who was in a bind after the Siamese he’d hired to model for a Laura Mercier campaign totally flaked on the job.


The shoot had a Gulliver’s Travels theme, but the Siamese never showed up for work, so Jean, Tabs’ photographer friend, needed a substitute model. He called Tabs early this morning before dawn in a panic.

Right after hanging up the phone, Tabs called a cab to the airport, caught a flight on standby down to San Diego, met the crew at the beach, modeled for the campaign, and then caught the next available flight back home. Total trip time: less than 12 hours.

Jean was so happy with the way things turned out that he booked Tabs for two more jobs next month!

Now that’s the way to get ahead as a top kitty supermodel in this business. πŸ™‚

If you’re interested, here’s a shot from that campaign and the other modeling jobs Tabs had 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). πŸ™‚

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. Have you been watching the new season of the Walking Dead? Pretty cool, right? It’s one of my favorite shows, but that one episode a couple of weeks ago with the walkers on the highway had a few plot holes (I mean, other than the whole zombie thing). How do 100 moaning, hobbling undead just suddenly appear? Wouldn’t you think you’d see ’em coming from, literally, a mile away?

P.P.S. Tabs has been a busy boy this year. His portfolio of kitty modeling pics is, like his robust tum, bursting at the seams! Here are some (just some) of the latest pics. For even MORE, you can skim through the archives here.

  3. Kim says:

    Oooh! I love the Zamboni! πŸ™‚ I’ve only watched a bit of one Walking Dead and it was the highway one. I thought the same thing. Well, that and “they move faster than most zombies… but luckily don’t look under cars”. I need to check out the show in earnest. πŸ™‚

  4. Haha, the Gulliver one made me laugh. Aww…poor Tabs. He’ll get out of that bind, I’m sure. He’s far too intelligent! πŸ˜‰

    Tabs, is the Tom Ford Beauty eyeshadow quad one of the ones in the original launch or will it be coming out sometime in the future? Thanks, Tabs, you are always ahead of the trends.
