Sundays With Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 220

Tabs for Sephora Cat Musk in Cardboard Box

Earlier this afternoon I spent some time in the kitchen prepping a few meals for this week. I was making quite a bit of racket, too, between the pans clanging on the stove, chopping veggies on the cutting board, running the food processor and opening and closing the refrigerator, and I guess Tabs must have tuned me out for a while, because at one point I stopped what I was doing and realized that I hadn’t seen him in a couple hours, so I stepped into the living room for a second and looked around…


Tabs was sitting on this dark wood entertainment center thingy we use as a table for our car keys and the mail, and I guess he didn’t notice me walk in because he didn’t stop what he was doing. He was hunched over a messy pile of magazines and envelopes and was pushing them one by one on the floor.

“Uh…” I said from the doorway, breaking his concentration. Startled, he looked at me for a quick second before hopping down and slinking away. “What’s goin’ on here?”

It’s so funny how Tabs will look guilty about certain things, like climbing up on that table, even though I’ve never scolded him about it. How did he even know there was something to feel guilty about, and when I walked in on him, why didn’t he just look up at me like, “What’s up, woman? You seen my toy?”

Maybe Tabs was just up there looking for his kitty modeling portfolio. He added new pics to it today from his latest modeling jobs… 🙂

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 addicts,

Karen and Tabs

P.S. I’m sitting down right now to watch The Walking Dead! So excited! I just wish it wasn’t already the midseason finale.

P.P.S. One of these days I should go through the Makeup and Beauty Blog archives and put all of the modeling pics Tabs has ever done for Sundays With Tabs into a single post (the thumbnails down below don’t represent all of them).

I’m tempted to do it, but it’s got to be at least 200 pics. I don’t know… That might be enough to crash the server!

  1. Tabs-you are one shmexxxxy beast I say!

    The mid-season finale was SO GOOD. I’m so glad Tyresse is finally here! And I kept wanting to scream at Andrea: WAKE UP woman! He’s a CREEP!
    I sure hope February is here soon! 🙂

    Our girls behave the same way. They get persnickety when they’re ignored and denied gravy and kibble, frustrated that they can’t snack every hour. So, they jump up on the counter, push the mail onto the floor piece by piece, and look back and forth at us and at the treat box high above the stove (the only safe place…so far). *sigh*
    Love the festive holiday bow, Tabs!
