Sundays With Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 237

Published in: Just For Fun, Tabs

Tabs for the Sally Hansen Easter Collection

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).

What do you mean, “You want 40% of the gravy up front!?” That’s highway robbery!


I hired Tabs to help me with a small project today (I needed a kitty supermodel), and because it’s a holiday, he demanded triple his regular wage, all paid in gravy, of course, and wanted 40% up front.

Can you believe that? Forty percent? Divas…

In other news, hoppy Easter! 🙂

What are ya up to today? Having fun, I hope. I’m just about ready to head out to visit my family in the East Bay with El Hub for brunch, and you know how much I love brunch, so I’m totally stoked.

In keeping with the season, Tabs had a couple of Easter-themed kitty modeling jobs this week (he says “meow,” by the way). Have a great day.

Tabs for Guerlain Golden Eggs Eye Cream

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.

To see more of his husky body of work, check out Sundays With Tabs, the Archives: From Anastasia to Zoya.

      Happy Easter, VictoriaJane! That’s what it’s like living with him. I turn the corner and bam! MEOW! “Give me gravy!” “Take me outside!” “Fly me first class to Paris!”

      And that’s actually Tabs’ real meow.

      What have you been up to so far today? Are you having a nice Easter?

    Happy Easter too! It was funny to search the eggs in the garden his morning with my son. I’m a French girl and I love your blog I read everything, especially Mac.
    Unfortunately, spring is not here yet, it’s very cold. But it will come :))
    Your cat is so lovely.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Fred54,

      Merci! Yes, it turned a little overcast and chilly here today too, but on the positive side, the rain makes everything lush and green.

      How old is your son, and where are you from in France? I would love, love to visit your beautiful country again. It’s one of my most favorite places in the world.

    Your blog is so fun to read! I loved the Supermodel Guerlain Poster. It was very fancy and beautiful. The cat is so cute : )
    Happy Easter!

    It’s nice to hear some US news! I love to go to New York, it’s a wonderful town, and next year, we’ll go to Miami. I live in the east of France, 200 miles from Paris. We are going to Paris in April to show the Eiffel tower to our 6 year old son. I’m a school teacher for 7 year old children. I love make up and beauty products, so it’s nice to hear some comments about new arrivals:)

    Lol, I am so pinning the Sally Hansen Tabby collection tomorrow on my New in Beauty Pinterest board, for April fool’s day! Hehehe…

    Hope you’re having a blast for Easter! We painted eggs yesterday, they turned out… interesting! We’ll probably eat them today.
    I had an egg hunt at work, and for Tab’s sake, it was so competitive! A coworker pushed me away to grab a silver egg! I might glue his phone tomorrow 🙂
