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…
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).
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.
