Sundays With Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 250

Published in: Just For Fun, Tabs

Tabs is really worried that his career is taking a terrible turn. No, it’s not that he’s losing jobs to a younger, more ambitious kitty model or that he’s been typecast in the plus-size arena.


Quite the opposite, in fact. He’s getting more modeling jobs than ever. Makeup and beauty (of course), fashion, housewares, pet accessories, food (Friskies, Science Diet, Fancy Feast), consumer electronics, movies, TV. He also just signed a deal with Jaguar, so pretty soon he’ll be promoting cars!

No, the problem isn’t a lack of work. It’s the opposite. He’s overexposed!

And that can spell doom for a kitty model. Some of the brands want a fresh face, so Tabs has been thinking about taking some time off, or maybe moving to Japan for a while (he loves sushi).

We’ll see… Hopefully it doesn’t have to be that drastic.

Which reminds me, have you seen any of the ads Tabs worked on this week? He had kitty modeling jobs for Chanel, Cargo Cosmetics, Dolce & Gabbana, Paul & Joe and MAC.

If you or your cat get a kick out of any of these, please let Tabs know. He loves your comments. 🙂

Who is Tabs the Cat? About six 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,


P.S. This post marked the two hundred and fiftieth installment of Sundays With Tabs…

WOW! That’s a lot. That is one hell of a lot of huskiness right there. Think about all the gravy that took (and his assistant’s countless hours).

You have been very supportive, by the way. Tabs really appreciates it. 🙂 Thank you for your support of kitty modeling and for spending part of your Sundays with Tabs.

    I just don’t know how Tabs has the stamina to work all of the modeling jobs, he does more before noon than most humans do all week. He never looks tired and those stripes! Pure purrfection! He can never be too exposed since he’s such a stunning creature~a god’s gift to humanity.

  2. Heidi says:

    Well, check out Tabs working that nerdy geek chic in the Chanel ad!

    Oh, and I thought of you, Tabs, when I saw this in the kids’ section of my local bookstore yesterday:

    Sundays with Tabs is something that I look forward to each week! (I have 5 cats but my main gal Millie usually lays with me while I read and I think she has a crush on Tabs. His cheekbones are so handsome.)

  8. Kim says:

    You know, kitty supermodels can only burn bright for a limited time. If Tabs has the stamina, I think he should continue to WERK! 😉
