From the very beginning here at Tabs the Cat Industries, LLC, Tabs has kept the company culture very much in line with other Bay Area startups — on-site gym, child and kitten care, 24/7 catering and a lax dress code (hoodies, flip-flops and ironic t-shirts strongly encouraged).
But I sense a change coming. With the company’s rapid expansion into the burgeoning global gravy market, the rumors have started, and some of the employees suspect that things around here are about to get a lot more corporate.
Of course, rumor mills will churn! The other day by the water cooler, I overheard Tabs say that he was planning on ditching the casual dress code. Yeah, he wants the place to have a more fashion-forward, kitty-centric look, and I’m not sure how I feel about that…
I do want to be a team player, though, and since the writing’s on the wall, I better start building my new wardrobe now. To that end, I spent some time this weekend shopping online for more appropriate cat-centered accessories and clothes.
And since I know that some of you are also full-time pet assistants, I thought I’d share some of the cool cat things I found. I mean, you never know when your kitty dictator/employer will put a new dress code in place. Cats do talk amongst themselves, after all, and it can’t hurt to be prepared.

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).
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
