“The show must go on.” And it did, despite questionable fur. When Tabs performed his Tony Award-winning one-cat rendition of The Nutcracker in 2015, he did it without the help of his favorite fur stylist.
It all went down on opening night, two hours before the show, when we got a last-minute call from celebrity hair/fur stylist Jen Atkin. She had gotten the flu, and she wasn’t going to be able to do Tabs’s fur backstage for the performance.
Everyone was shocked. Slowly, Tabs put down his phone and said, “Meow…”
I’d never heard him say it that way before, and it sent shivers down my spine.
Since there wasn’t enough time to find another stylist of Jen’s caliber, and there was no way Tabs was going to entrust his magnificent fur to someone new, he did the next most logical thing. He styled his mane himself.
Needless to say, Tabs gave a masterful performance. Anyone who was there that night will tell you there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. 🙂
