Tabs was many things — pro feline football player, fashion phenom, philanthropist, seafood lover, fabulous chef — but one thing he wasn’t was a skilled fisherman. His lack of fishing skills was his secret shame.
He just didn’t have the patience for it. Sure, he loved fishing fashion, designer sunglasses and lounging by the lake with a bottle of bubbly, but the actual fishing part of it? Not a fan, and he REALLY didn’t like getting dirty pond water on his fur.
That being said, he was an award-winning three-time Novato Birding Champion. It’s just that fishing wasn’t one of his strengths.
One time he came home after a day on his yacht with a tall tale about a 45-pound marlin. He kept trying to convince me that he almost caught it, and he called it “the one that got away.” Quite frankly, I think he was full of catnip.
