If I could — if we lived in a house with a yard — I’d give Tabs his own cat dream backyard. A huge open-air cat enclosure, like a safe kitty resort, with all of the amenities of the great outdoors. It would have a grassy area in the middle of it with a small catnip, zinnia and echinacea garden, multiple bird feeders, bushes to hide under and a climbing/shade tree surrounded by a tall wooden fence to keep the less-than-neighborly wild animals away.
I think he’d really, really like something like that…
He could unwind out there after long, grueling days of kitty modeling work, like the day he had today.
It was a tough one. Started with a 6 a.m. flight down to San Diego and ended with a job for MAC in Oakland up here.
Yup, such is life when you’re a world-famous kitty supermodel trying to strike while the iron’s hot. Gotta take the work while you can get it.
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,
