Tabs isn’t the only kitty model with a career that took numerous twists and turns. His kitty model cousin Esmeralda from Toronto also took a diagonal kitty modeling career path. One day while walking through a garden as a young kitten, she was scouted by a renowned kitty modeling agent and originally said no because at the time she wanted to purr-sue an engineering career and become one of the kitty rocket scientists working to put the first cat on Mars.
But destiny intervened that day while she was sniffing a zinnia. She went on to become the most famous kitty model in Toronto, and one of the most successful kitty models in all of Canada.
Now she’s retired and living the good life. She spent this month traveling throughout the United States on a whirlwind sushi tour to hit the hot spots for the best sashimi. Tuna is her favorite, of course, with salmon a close second.
Anyway, because Esmeralda is family, we insisted that she stay with us in Novato on her stop to the Bay Area. She and Tabs talked about the good old days, and Esmeralda tried to get Tabs to finally retire, but I don’t think Tabs is quite ready for that yet.
I’m hoping that she’ll stay a little longer because it’s been nice having company around. It’s certainly helped the baby’s cat lady-ness to blossom.
I asked Esmeralda what her plans are for the future, and she said that she’s thinking about becoming a cat yoga instructor, which makes a lot of sense to me because she’s very flexible. She’s been trying out her teaching skills on me, Tabs and the baby, and so far Tabs has the best downward dog of all of us.
I think she and Tabs should open a chain of cat yoga studios. Tabs is always looking for new business ventures, after all, but to be honest, I don’t think Esmeralda wants to work that hard.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. If you have a good sushi spot in your town and would like Esmeralda to visit you, you can contact her here. 🙂
