Sundays With Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 211

Tabs for the MAC Feline Fur Brush

I’m sitting here in the living room eating popcorn and watching the fifth season of Friday Night Lights, and Tabs is nowhere to be found. I think he turned in early, totally tuckered out after the rollicking weekend he had.


He didn’t party in the traditional sense, but he did host a couple of parties — or rather I did, seeing as how I take care of that kind of thing for him as his professional pet assistant/lackey.

Let me just say this: if I never see another catnip cocktail in my entire life, it’ll be too soon.

I’m sure he’ll be down for dinner… Tabs hasn’t missed a dinner in, um, ever. He better hurry, though, because I don’t know how much longer I’ll be awake.

I may try to coax him downstairs with cookie dough… Seriously, it’s the weirdest thing. Whenever I bake cookies and bust out one of those tubes of Toll House cookie dough, Tabs comes runnin’. I don’t know if it’s the crinkling of the packaging or the scent of the dough, but he stands up on his hind legs at the kitchen counters, meows and flashes his sad eyes like he’s saying, “Please, miss, can you spare a cookie? I’m so very hungry.”

Yeah, right! We all know that’s B.S., as evidenced by his No. 1 ranking from the Association of Plus Size Kitty Supermodels, and it doesn’t look like he’s going to lose that ranking anytime soon, not with busy modeling weeks like this one. Here are some of the campaigns he did… ๐Ÿ™‚

Tabs for Burberry Husky Body Eau de Parfum

Tabs for Laura Mercier Whisker Length Lash Mascara

Tabs for the Deborah Lippmann Play Therapy Set

Tabs for NARS Strawberry Village

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). ๐Ÿ™‚

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    Tabs sounds so amazing! He is so handsome as well! He’s lucky you’re his mommy / co-worker lol

    • Karen says:

      Hi, Karla. “Co-worker” is being way too generous. I’m just his low-level assistant. He’s the one who calls the shots. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Have a great week.

  3. Ellen says:

    LOL love these pics!! Meow!

  4. Michelle says:

    Tabs, I’m loving the lashes! I might have to buy the brush for my girls who demand belly scritches and rubs. Of course, you wouldn’t know anything about being demanding ๐Ÿ˜‰ Stay hip and handsome, and take care of Karen.

  5. LOL the feline fur brush!

    Does Tabs like to have his tum groomed? Tango REALLY doesn’t, and since Muffin is not bothered by an awful lot of things I can basically hold her tum-up like a baby in one arm and groom her tum for as long as I like with the other ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Erin says:

    Hahaha “whisker-length lashes” I love it! Tabs is lookin good!

  7. Ruchita says:

    Tabs standing at the counter on his hind legs is so adorable. Mingy does the same thing, He tries to be all casual like he just happened to be there streching, but I know he’s got ulterior motives. ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Nina says:

    I would be first in line to buy the MAC 999 Brush!

  9. BethC says:

    LOL!!! Tabs rocks! My 4 cats look up to him and aspire to follow in his paw prints. My cats hate the Zoom brush or a comb. I will have to visit my friendly MAC counter for the feline fur brush >^..^<

  10. GKitty says:

    Not only is the handsome Tabs gorgeously coiffed in his latest MAC ad, but–dare I say it(?!?)–he also appears quite svelte! (The magic of proper application and techniques in action, perhaps…? ;))

  11. Jennifer says:

    The Bieber ad is classic! And I ADORE the Nars one too!

    did you watch Weeds back in the day? you callin Tabs “husky” always makes me think of that show…when that one girl was a Huskaroos child model? if you’re not familiar, there was a “husky” girl child who became a model for the Huskaroos brand of umm…husky child clothing. how WRONG that they called the brand that!!! but funny when we talk about our animals. Tabs is a Huskaroo boy ๐Ÿ™‚
