Sundays With Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 203

Tabs for the Anastasia Cat Brown Pencil

Sometimes divas need a break, ya know? It’s hard to be on all the time. That’s why it was nice to see Tabs take some much-needed time off this weekend. While I was visiting my friend Jen in San Jose yesterday, Tabs held down the fort here at home/MBB headquarters.


He made pasta, read some magazines and caught up on a ton of his favorite TV shows recorded on the DVR, like Dogs 101 and Giada at Home. He rarely gets any downtime, so he cherishes the weekends where he can just veg and do cat things, like climb trees, study mixology, surf the web for low-fat gravy recipes and practice scratching on his DJ turntable.

Heck, I can’t even remember the last time Tabs spent a full weekend just chillin’ like this at home.

I worry sometimes that he works too hard…but at least he doesn’t have a really busy week ahead of him. No international travel, which is nice, but he does have to meet with his local tech team on Wednesday to discuss an upcoming project. He’s been thinking about starting an e-commerce store catering to high-end cat clientele. I can’t reveal any details yet, but I can say that the words “Chanel cat accessories” have been tossed around.

As for me, I’m taking it easy tonight. It’s not even 9, and I’m already in my stretchy pants with a cup of Sleepytime Tea. I don’t want to miss it, but I don’t know if I’m gonna make it to see the Curiosity landing on Mars.

Oh! — almost forgot. Tabs always likes to share his kitty modeling exploits. Here are the most recent pics from his portfolio. πŸ™‚

Who is Tabs the Cat? About five 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). πŸ™‚

      Hi, Becca. How’s it going tonight? I really enjoy doing these (and I know that Tabs likes the camera attention), but they do take a while… Maybe 3-4 hours most of the time.

      Are you staying up to watch the Curiosity landing? I was watching the live NASA feed a little while ago.

    These are amazing, as usual! Props to Tabs for still having had 5 photo shoots despite him sneaking in a relaxing weekend.

    I’m in awe that you can come up with and execute these in just 3~4 hours! The UD one is awesome, but the China Glaze ad really cracked me up for some reason. πŸ™‚
