“Hi, this message is for Tabs. Tabs, this is Joss Whedon. It’s about 9:30 Sunday night. I just saw you in tonight’s True Blood and man! — awesome. Awesome job. Hey, I’ve actually been meaning to call you for a while, you know, apologize in person for the way things ended after Cat Avengers but…well, I’m sorry. It wasn’t my decision, man. It was the studio. If it had been up to me, you definitely would have gotten top billing.
“But anyway, that’s why I’m calling now. I want to make it up to you. This role… The role of a lifetime, Tabs. Call me. I’m working on something new that…well, you’d be perfect in it.
“This is it. We’re talking Academy Award-type role here. Intrigue, adventure, romance — and you, you’d be perfect as the main character. I wrote him with you in mind. The main character, he’s vulnerable, but not too vulnerable. The strong, silent type. Think Ryan Gosling’s character in Drive, only with four legs and fur.
“Anyway, man, just call me. Have your girl call my assistant, and we’ll set something up. We’ll do lunch. Call me. 555-555-1212. Cheers.”
Just another night at Tabs the Cat Industries, LLC. When I wasn’t checking voicemails for Tabs, I was out getting some emergency groceries for the week. Now I’m just settling down with a mug of tea and firing up tonight’s True Blood on the DVR.
Tabs has a cameo, and I hear he’s supposed to be good…
Between filming on location in Louisiana and doing a commercial for Friskies in Miami, Tabs also did some modeling this week, including jobs for Benefit, EstÃ©e Lauder, Sephora, Bobbi Brown and Vera Wang.
Here are the latest pics from his kitty modeling portfolio…
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).
