Sundays With Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 191

Published in: Just For Fun

Guess who arrived home today from the East Bay to find a bouquet of freesias (my favorite!) and a lovely handmade Cat Mother’s Day card from Tabs with a spa gift certificate inside?


Here’s a hint: it wasn’t me.

Oh, sure — you might think that Tabs, who on rare occasions calls me “Mom,” or perhaps he’s just mispronouncing “Ma’am,” would have at least hooked me up with a card, but noooo.

Oh, well… If he doesn’t make it up to me on Pet Administrative Professionals Day, then he’ll be in big trouble.

And I mean BIG! — like the demand lately for plus-size kitty models. 🙂

Here are some of the campaigns he worked on this week…

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.

    That catnip really looks like marijuana! LOL

  2. Tabs looks sooo handsome with a fedora (and the photographer is a dog bwahaha)! It’s a BIT creepy to see him with blue eyes, but then again I know that color contacts are the trend!

      Hi Jo,

      Yup, it’s been one of my many side-gigs for the past few years. Of course, my main career is plus size kitty modeling!

      Love ya,
