Sundays With Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 234

Published in: Just For Fun, Tabs

Today Tabs learned that some lizards can breathe underwater…


We call them salamanders, but Tabs had never heard that word before. He saw one and a bunch of other cool stuff on his solo hike today through the Indian Valley Open Space Preserve.

Right after I got up this morning, I stumbled downstairs looking for coffee, and there was Tabs getting geared up by the front door. He was wearing his feline fanny pack, which he’d already filled with Feline Greenies, a water bottle, his iPhone pre-loaded with trail maps, a can of Fancy Feast Gravy Lovers (turkey in gravy, of course) and his little Leatherman multitool (which has a can opener).

“Going for a walk?” I asked.

“Mrow,” he replied. A backcountry hike.

He was gone for five hours! — during which time I caught up on some admin stuff for the blog, did four loads of laundry, and did a ton of high-intensity lounging around.

Tabs looked exhausted when he finally walked through the door. His paws were covered in red dirt and he had thorny stickers in his fur.

He groaned when he took off his pack, and then went on to tell me a tale that started with his meeting a nice horse, followed by a steep climb to the top of a tall hill, a hike to a waterfall where he spotted the salamander, a high-speed chase involving a huge dog, and how he carved his name into a tree with his pocketknife.

Yup, while I did a whole lotta nothin’ today, my cat had quite an adventure. 🙂

Did you have a good weekend? Any adventures to report? Whatever you got into, please tell me you did something fun.

Oh, here are the latest pics (and a YouTube commercial) from Tabs’ ever-growing kitty modeling portfolio. If you’ve been following A Relaxing Time, the next installment (the ninth/grand finale, I believe) is coming soon…

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,

    Sounds like Tabs had a great time enjoying the nice weather today. I spent the afternoon with my friend Mary. We went out for my belated birthday brunch. It was fantastic, as always. We went to my favorite local brunch place, Viola’s. If you’re ever in the area, Karen, it’s a must try place! So delicious.
