Sundays with Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 166

Tabs for Chanel Velvet Rouge

One of the crosses Tabs bears as an international kitty supermodel is the loss of the anonymity he once enjoyed. There was a time in his life back before MAC and Chanel when he could skulk around unnoticed, but now he’s always in the crosshairs of a paparazzo’s telephoto lens.


It’s tough. On the one paw, he loves being Internet famous — the gravy, the girls, the glamour — but on the other, he misses just being able to chase butterflies and lizards with the other cats outside.

You know what they say. The grass is always greener… ๐Ÿ™‚

As for modeling, this was probably the last busy week for Tabs this month. Things usually slow down a little over Thanksgiving, and then pick up again heading into Christmas.

Tabs had some good gigs last week, though, for Chanel, EcoTools, Clarins, Pacifica and Bobbi Brown. Here are the pics, if you’d like to take a look.

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). ๐Ÿ™‚

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. So…? What did ya think of tonight’s Walking Dead? I don’t know… Seemed kinda melodramatic this week, didn’t it? For a second there I thought I was watching the undead Days of our Lives.

P.P.S. Tabs has been a professional kitty model for going on three years now, and his portfolio, much like his robust tum, is bursting at the seams. Here are some (just some) of his favorite pics, and there are plenty more in the archives here.

    The Magic Carpet one is my favorite.

    I have a question…. Do you snap photos of Tabs in different positions, then superimposed it on the photos?

    Hey that’s the way a friend of mine got his dog. it was a stray puppy starving and ill resting on his doorstep in a sultry summer noon. That was almost ten years ago. Now he’s his body guard!!

    Looks like I should try Walking Dead. With True Blood season finale and Vampire Diaries episodes to be aired in Jan, I’m kinda sad!! ๐Ÿ™ But still satiating myself with Gossip Girl

    Yeah, what’s with all the angst on “The Walking Dead”? They’re acting like it’s the end of the world… oh, wait, it is the end of the world… ๐Ÿ™‚
