Sundays With Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 367

Published in: Just For Fun, Tabs


It’s that time of year again! Preparations are in full swing for the annual Tabs the Cat Halloween Kitty Costume Ball, a charity event to benefit Husky House Cats International, an organization dedicated to placing extra large, lovable kitties with talented pet assistants.


This afternoon Tabs did his preliminary costume fittings, and he’s having a hard time deciding between Octo-kitty ($7.49) and Mermaid Tabs ($7.50). Right now he’s leaning toward Octo-kitty, but I’m partial to Mermaid Tabs… I just think the green goes better with his eyes.

What do you think?

If you and/or your cat work in the kitty modeling industry, keep your eyes peeled for your invite to the ball. We’ll be sending them out this week. 🙂






Now, costume time! If your cat hasn’t settled on his/her Halloween costume for this year, here’s a list of pre-approved ideas by Tabs, including a couple of DIY options.

  2. Elena says:

    The kitty kimonos are beautiful!! I personally am leaning towards octo-Tabs. lol. Both outfits are great though!!

  3. Tabs says:

    Thank you, Elena! I love wearing purple and enjoy that costume very much.


  4. Melissa says:

    I vote for the Octo-kitty costume just because of the ear holes…so cute! I remember trying to make hats with ear holes and tail covers for my cat when I was little. ❤️

  5. Jandy says:

    Octokitty! For sure!

  6. Kate says:

    Dear Tabs
    I have been the assistant to many cats and none have worn costumes as nobly as you

    Dear Karen
    None of my cats would let me put any clothing on them
    Isabella owner of Kate, her claws are sharp, but she’d be cute

  7. Hahahaha, that is not a very happy looking kitty you got there, Karen 😉

    I absolutely LOVE all the costume ideas though! Cuteness overload! The kitty kimonos are sooooo adorable and pretty.

    Tabs we need to have a cat-chat.

    You cannot. CANNOT. let the humans do that to you.
    Even if you like it, you must fight and resist, and get at least one blood-shedding scratch in. You must growl and hiss a little bit too.

    This is what proper cats do to preserve our dignity. Even if it is fake and we love the costumes (like the fish tail one).
