I don’t know, maybe it’s the warmer weather, but Tabs has been getting ornery lately on our walks outside. Used to be he wouldn’t pull at the end of his leash. He just sort of knew after a while how far he could go (10 feet), and we’d walk around like that, exploring his favorite hill on the side of the house, the garden in the front and the neighbor’s air conditioning unit, which is also home to a bunch of big brown lizards Tabs likes to chase.
But now? Now Tabs regularly tests the end of the leash on practically every walk. I think because it’s been sunny lately, there are tall grasses everywhere, birds fluttering between the trees, and children out playing; there’s just a lot more stimulus outside. More to grab his attention.
Just imagine what it must be like for him on his business trips… I mean, if he finds the hills of Novato exciting, he must think the discotecas in Rio, the sidewalks of Key West, and the resorts in Fiji, Hawaii and Palm Springs are out of sight!
Speaking of that, here are some highlights from his most recent kitty modeling gigs…
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 isn’t just husky in the physical sense; he’s also huge online, you know, “out there.” On the Internets. His favorite social network is Twitter (@partywithtabs), so if you’re ever in the mood to tweet a cat, drop him a line. And if you’re interested, there’s much more of his beauty work and feline philanthropy in the archives here.
