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).
Ever seen a cat ride a mountain bike?
Yeah, it’s funny. I cracked up watching Tabs ride away on mine a little while ago. His short little legs were stretching to reach those pedals, let me tell you, and he looked so cute with my big blue helmet on and the little white strap under his chin.
When I wouldn’t agree to drive him to the hardware store today, he pumped up the tires on my bike all by himself, dragged the bike outside and left.
He had to lean the bike against a wall to keep it upright while he hopped up on a garbage can to reach the seat.
All this because he wants to buy a bird feeder… Yup, one of those hummingbird ones with the sweet syrup inside.
See, he got it into his head that he would hang the feeder from one of the rafters above the deck outside. That way he’d have something to do/watch while he’s outside sunning himself or tending to his catnip and zinnia garden.
Kind of like outdoor cat TV.
Anywho, I hope he’s alright. I worry about him out there with the traffic. He doesn’t have a lot of practice riding bikes, and I don’t even know if his cat license is up to date…
Oh, I know I shouldn’t worry. I’m sure he’ll be fine.
While he’s gone, would you like to see the latest pics from his kitty modeling portfolio? Here’s what Tabs has been up to this week…
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Kitty modeling is a tough, rough-and-tumble business filled with fake felines and yes-cats. That’s why Tabs is such a rarity in the biz. His brash honesty and brazen disregard for professional gamesmanship (cat politics) has earned him a reputation as a diva… Whatev. I like divas.
