Tabs the Cat for Dior Dapper Cologne

Shortly after I got home today, I took a shower and walked back downstairs to find Tabs sipping a catnip cappuccino on the deck. He was sitting at a small circular wrought iron table with his back to the screen door. He’d just finished having a late lunch salad of catnip and zinnia and was listening to the birds sing while reading The New Yorker.


“Sir,” I said to him through the screen, “I’m back from La Jolla.”

He stopped and piqued an ear at the sound of my voice but didn’t turn around. A moment later he went back to his reading.

“How were things while I was gone?” I asked, ignoring the awkward pause.

A hummingbird appeared. It flitted up to a glass feeder hung from the awning over the deck and poked its long beak into the tiny brass flowers in the base, moving from one to the next, all the way around.

Tabs paused to watch the hummingbird, his tiny cappuccino cup frozen in midair, and proceeded to cack-ack-ack at the bird without otherwise moving.

When the bird zipped away to a nearby oak tree, I pressed again. “Is there anything you need?” I asked, not really expecting an answer.

With his back still to me, Tabs picked up his iPhone and started typing with his thumb claws.

Something vibrated on a table behind me. My iPhone. I picked it up and saw a text from Tabs.

Typical, I huffed, and read the text. “Please direct all correspondence to my new assistant.”

New assistant? Who could that– Oh, I suddenly realized, he meant El Hub.

I’m getting the silent treatment… Yup, that’s what I get for taking a few days off.

In other news, Tabs had a very busy week with lots of kitty modeling jobs, and here they are. ๐Ÿ™‚ We hope you enjoy.

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). ๐Ÿ™‚

    Welcome back, K!

    Typical catittude for ya. I’m currently getting the cold shoulder from Missy and I was only gone for the day. Of course, she’s also completely zoned out on catnip right now, so that’s not helping the situation. When I left the house this morning it was all in a pile in the living room. Now there are little bits of catnip scattered throughout every room of the house. Someone was busy while I was gone!

    Tabs, our cats, Maxwell and Oscar, also do the same thing. I guess us humans should never go anywhere! LOL

  7. Kim says:

    Poor you! The silent treatment is tough. The upside is that El Hub will never make it as Tabs’ assistant so you’ll have your job back in no time. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    PS Especially love the OPI transition to night. Awesome!
