Tabs for the Chanel Resort Collection

Three seconds after the chrome clip at the end of the leash clacked against the tiled hallway floor, I heard the familiar thud of an 18-pound tabby cat jumping down from a counter upstairs. Tabs can recognize the sound of his leash dropping against the tiles by the front door from anywhere in the house, and as soon as he hears it, he’s knows that it’s time to go for a walk outside.


Walks are one of his favorite pastimes in the world. In fact, I think he enjoys them almost as much as modeling.

Today we explored the grassy hillside next to the house, which is to say that I watched Tabs and browsed the Web on my phone while he patted at wet leaves on the ground, rooted around for lizards and ate about two pounds of grass.

I’m glad he got some time to unwind today because the holidays were really tough on him… Poor kitty worked all through Christmas week doing modeling jobs for MAC, Chanel, Benefit, Dior and Sam Edelman.

Yep, life as a world-renowned kitty supermodel isn’t all parties and champagne. Sometimes it’s really hard work. πŸ™‚

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. What’s covered with fur and filled with makeup? Answer: a kitty supermodel’s portfolio. Here are some pictures from Tabs’ portfolio of recent kitty modeling work. For more, check out the archives here).

    Missy’s loving the studded bracelet on Tabs in the Dior ad.

    I’m glad she’s calmed down and checking out Tabs’ portfolio. She’s still very jumpy after all the firecrackers going off in the neighborhood last night. It’s sooo much fun to hear a cat growling all night and darting back and forth from underneath the bed!

    • Karen says:

      Missy would look great in a bracelet like that. Perhaps white with platinum studs?

      Tabs went nuts last night too! πŸ™

      • Heidi says:

        White would be stunning. Her majesty loves her neutrals as well as bright jewel tones.

        She’s still very nervous tonight. She doesn’t trust that the loud noises are done. Poor baby.
