Tabs for Buxom Big Tabby Mascara

Saint Tabby de la LoireNext time you go to Trader Joe’s and find yourself in the wine aisle, look for a bottle of Saint Tabby de la Loire. Trust me on this. If you like cats and white wine, you’ll love Saint Tabby de la Loire.


In the interest of full disclosure, I have to point out that Tabs owns a controlling stake in the winery, which is in Yountville, in Napa County, California.

If you’re ever out this way, you should totally go!

Let me tell you, the grounds are breathtaking. Tall cedars line the long driveway that leads to a huge Tuscan estate atop a hill that overlooks the vineyard. Row upon row of red and white grape vines, a huge tasting room, and the whole place caters to cats and cat ladies.

Well…cats mostly just like to explore the vineyard, which is stocked with imported mice from France, while cat ladies partake of the wine and play with the kitties.

As for the wine itself, c’est magnifique! Sweet and smooth, like the owner himself.

When he isn’t inspecting the vineyard at Saint Tabby de la Loire, Tabs is busy padding his kitty modeling portfolio and growing his fashion and media empires (Tabs the Cat Industries, LLC.).

Here are the latest pics from his portfolio 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. LOL! Tabs is quite a character, and there’s a lot more of his exploits in the archives here. He’s been at this modeling business for a while now (about a decade in cat years) and has accumulated a large body of work.

    These are so great! Do you think you could make some of these available for desktop backgrounds? That would be so much better than seeing the Microsoft background.
