14 Pictures of Tabs in a Box

All the great kitty supermodels have to earn their chops posing with cardboard, and before they can move into catalog work or runway, they have to demonstrate a certain level of kitty cardboard aptitude.


It isn’t an easy prop to work with, either. It takes some cats years to master the art of acting like they’re completely hidden when just their head is covered, or figuring out how to fit into boxes that are clearly too small for them. Or the most difficult cardboard skill of all — hopping in and out of boxes over and over again for no apparent reason.

But good cardboard box modeling skills are probably the best overall indicator of kitty modeling greatness. Nothing else showcases a kitty model’s full repertoire of modeling moves like cardboard boxes.

Case in point, the following examples from my employer’s portfolio… 🙂














If you know any aspiring kitty supermodels, please let them know that Tabs is available now to hire for one-on-one personal kitty cardboard modeling instruction. You know how he feels about sharing his knowledge with up-and-coming members of the cat modeling community.

Just leave a comment with any pertinent details about your feline friend’s specific goals and modeling background, and Tabs will get back to you. 🙂

    He is so handsome and dignified even sitting in a box!

    So much talent! We’re moving in a few weeks to a new place, so surely Jiji is going to be showing off his cardboard skills. Quincy is only an honorary cat, but he’s got cardboard experience too.

    Oh Karen, my cat Rambo loves boxes as well. We swear he was a hobo in a past life. I don’t know what it is with cats and boxes (or pieces of paper laying around for him to lay on).

  6. OMG we need more themed photo series like this!!! Tabs in a box. Tabs sleeping. Tabs doing yoga. Tabs savoring some fine salmon. It’ll be awesome.

    Tabs, boxes are sacred. I devised a brilliant genius plan to keep everyone out of all my boxes. You should try this, it works.

    I love Tabs’ collection of festive hats! 🙂 Seeing cats in boxes always makes me smile. Strangely, Mingus and Nina are not huge fans, but Ella loves them!

    I like Tabs’ padded, resting spot on the bottom shelf of the TV stand. One of our gals insists on sleeping on the cable box instead. She’s not at all concerned about the gobs of cat hair that need to be cleaned out of there. She has people to do that. 😉

    Hi Karen ,
    Tabs is very Adorbable ! And quite a poser !
    My daughter was asked to be a model .
    But she didn’t want to pay for a portfolio for Willibee sp I think that’s what it was .
    I was disappointed because at age 45 she is gorgeous !
    But gave a steadfast ” No” !
    Good luck with your beautiful Tabs !

    One of my cats is obsessed with empty Snapple containers. I have a video of him walking like a turtle in one (front legs out the front and hind legs out the back). He also likes empty soda boxes, the 12 packs. He thinks if his head is hidden he’s invisible.

    I recently met this cat, Augustus, who is also a fan of boxes – I’m trying to convince him to hire Tabs… 🙂
