Sundays with Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 187

Published in: Just For Fun

Tabs for MAC Furfinish in Extra Dimension

Tabs is watching The Social Network tonight on TV, and I don’t know if you knew this, but he was actually one of the original founders of Facebook.


Yeah, it was called The Catbook at that time, and Tabs was the president of the Crimson Feline Society at Harvard, the largest cats-only club on campus, so he was responsible for getting cats to sign up to the new website.

Anywho, there was some politicking among Tabs and the other founders, some allegations related to intellectual property, and Tabs got pushed out. It’s okay, though, because it freed up his time to focus on kitty modeling. 🙂

Tabs couldn’t even talk about it for years because of ongoing litigation… He and Mark Zuckerberg weren’t on speaking terms there for a while, but they’re civil now.

Speaking of kitty modeling, Tabs had a busy week! He had kitty modeling jobs for MAC, Zoya, Hourglass, NARS and Cheeky Monkey Cosmetics. Here’s some of his most recent work.

Tabs for Zoya Field and Mouse

Tabs for Hourglass Eye Shadow Duo in Duet

Tabs for NARS Night Owl

Tabs for Cheeky Tabby Cat Towers

Who is Tabs the Cat? About four 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. Tabs tries to be everywhere online, but his favorite social network is Twitter (@partywithtabs). If you’re interested, you can see what else Tabs has been up to lately in the archives here.

    Darn it!! You fooled me again Karen. When I was scrolling through my subscriptions on Google Reader, I skimmed across this one and thought, “Oooh, MAC is coming out with a new collection.. This looks nice!” But then when I looked toward the bottom of the picture and saw the turkeys and fish.. I thought, “WHAT THE?” It was Tabs!! You got mad skills in graphic design chick. LOL

  16. Sara says:

    okay so the thing is, i would TOTALLY buy both of those zoya colors. and the nars ones too!

    so the recent photos of your neighborhood have reminded me of the dream i had a while ago that you lived next door to someone i was visiting, and you and el hub came rushing out the front door and i went up to yall and started crying and was like “i’m such a big fan!” sorry if that’s weird but it’s true. haha
