One day a few years ago Tabs was working on some new fashion sketches for his latest cat collar in a sunny patch of sidewalk in front of the house.
He was deep in the creative zone when, out of nowhere, Harris the neighborhood cat bully appeared. Before Tabs could react, Harris leaped on Tabs’s sketchbook, and in a frenzy of fierce claws, ripped a bunch of pages out and ran off with them! He sped away around a corner of the garage and out of sight.
Tabs was speechless. “What the? No! Why!?” He sat there trying to process the horror that had just happened. Tabs had just finished a new sketch for a sunflower summer collar he was sure would take the feline fashion world by storm, but now it was…gone! Harris took it for no reason, totally unprovoked. It was the rudest, meanest, rottenest thing Tabs had seen in a long time, and he was shocked — shocked! — that any cat would do it.
“Hey!” he shouted, “Do you have any idea what you’ve done?”
Tabs was completely aghast. In his estimation, he had just created the design for a collar so fabulous and so revolutionary that it would end the city-country cat wars and bring peace to all felinekind. How could any cat be so selfish and short sighted that they would jeopardize world peace like that?
“This is about more than fashion!” he yelled and shook his paw.
Still no answer.
Despite Harris’s brazen daylight attack, Tabs went on to recreate his design and finish it the following year. It went on to become his magnum opus, his masterpiece, selling a record 300 million collars. 😊
In other news…Van Helsing. The show on Syfy? Do you watch it? We started watching it on Netflix last week, and it’s surprisingly good! — if you like post-apocalyptic vampire shows, which I do. It stars a cat who looks just like Tabs…
For real, it’s good though.
