Sundays With-out Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 257

Published in: Just For Fun, Tabs

Cat lady in paradise!

Dear Tabs,

Good evening, sir. How are you? I hope you’re enjoying your extended stay-cation and the new petsitter. Getting lots of good meow time, I hope? I know how you feel about recharging your batteries.


Things are going well on this end. I miss you, of course. I have to say that I haven’t been getting a lot of downtime here on Kauai, since your kitty cousins have kept me extremely busy. Tortie Girl, TGII, Tabby Mac and Tuxie all send their regards, by the way.

In case you were wondering, yes, I did receive your request for updated profiles on each of the cats for their modeling portfolios. I’ve attached them below. I hope they are up to your standards.

Kind regards,


Tortie Girl

Tortie Girl

  • AGE: 3-4? Really, now, a lady never reveals her true age!
  • HOMETOWN: Lihue, Kauai, Hawaii
  • CURRENT OCCUPATION: Headline entertainer at The Barbecue Pits at the Kalapaki Bay Marriott and occasional kitty model for various online publications
  • THREE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOU: Dainty, bossy, diva
  • FAVORITE HOBBIES: Sunbathing, hunting chickens and playing hide-and-seek
  • WHAT YOU HOPE TO ACCOMPLISH IN YOUR LIFE: To bring joy to as many people as possible. I’m lucky that I get to do this every day at my job!


TGII, formally known as Tortie Girl II

  • AGE: 3 1/2 and proud of it!
  • HOMETOWN: Lihue, Kauai, Hawaii
  • CURRENT OCCUPATION: I’m a cat of all trades. By day, I’m a professional chicken chaser and member of the elite Hide-and-Seek Kitty League of Kauai. By night, I’m the opening act for my sister, Tortie Girl, at The Barbecue Pits at the Kalapaki Bay Marriott. In my spare time, I volunteer teaching etiquette to young cats at the TGII Charm School for Kittens.
  • THREE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOU: Outgoing, friendly, sweetheart
  • FAVORITE HOBBIES: Sleeping on laps, fitness and traveling
  • WHAT YOU HOPE TO ACCOMPLISH IN YOUR LIFE: To explore the island, seek out adventure, and to teach the lost art of etiquette to as many young kittens as possible.

Tabby Mac

Tabby Mac

  • AGE: 3 1/2
  • HOMETOWN: Lihue, Kauai, Hawaii
  • CURRENT OCCUPATION: Like my sister, TGII, I like to keep busy. First and foremost, I’m the official taste tester at the Kapalapki Bay Marriot Barbecue Pits. I also work in security/loss prevention, patrolling the perimeter of the club day and night to enforce our current reign as the kitty family in residence.
  • THREE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOU: Handsome, husky, thug
  • FAVORITE HOBBIES: Eating, staring down strangers with my piercing green eyes, and running…usually away from people
  • WHAT YOU HOPE TO ACCOMPLISH IN YOUR LIFE: To protect my tortie sisters by any means necessary, and to never go hungry, no matter what.



  • AGE: 2-3
  • HOMETOWN: Lihue, Kauai, Hawaii
  • CURRENT OCCUPATION: Lone wolf, scholar, researcher. I’m currently conducting a study on a family of three hotel cats and their marketing strategies. Sometimes my aloof nature leads others to think that I’m uninterested, when really, I’m just a sweet, socially awkward cat looking for love.
  • THREE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOU: Loving, misunderstood, outsider
  • FAVORITE HOBBIES: People watching, napping and writing my memoirs.
  • WHAT YOU HOPE TO ACCOMPLISH IN YOUR LIFE: Even though I enjoy my alone time, I would love to someday be able to say that I changed the world, or at least the island, through my scientific pursuits. If you’re interested in helping to fund my research efforts, donations of cat treats and tuna are gladly accepted. Please leave them at The Barbecue Pits, care of Tuxie. Thank you.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addicts,

Karen, Tortie Girl, TGII, Tabby Mac and Tuxie

    Aww I’m in love with all of them (especially Tabby Mac. I’ve seen that expression on Tango)! I do the same thing when I’m on holiday (ie looking for cats to play with, as if I didn’t have enough at home already haha)! You look happy surrounded by them 😉

    I love this. Thank you–just what I needed for bed time. Maybe I’ll dream of playing with 4 cute cats. 🙂

    I love Kauai and I love tabby cats! My tabby is Tahoe, who showed up in the spare tire of my Tahoe. The rest is, as they say, cat history.
