I saw a tiny tiara at Target the other day and thought about Snowflake. She was Tabs’s longtime…how shall we say this — kitty companion? I remembered the time he took her to Tiffany and said she could pick out anything she wanted, but when she picked out an engagement ring, Tabs looked really nervous. “Oh, um…” he meowed, “anything except a ring.” So Snowflake picked a tiny tiara instead.
Tabs was funny about relationships… He wasn’t a player, but at the same time, he never put a ring on it with Snowflake, even though I thought he should, just because she was such a good cat. Devoted, funny, beautiful, and a stellar kitty model in her own right. They actually worked on several kitty modeling campaigns together, which led the gossip mags to speculate that they’d get married, but they never did.
I asked Tabs about it once, and he said that he had too much going on to be tied down to a conventional relationship, which I think may have been true to a certain degree, but I also think he was just afraid of getting his heart broken.
Snowflake waited patiently for Tabs for several years before eventually moving on. Last time I heard, she had settled down with a cat of royal lineage in Scotland. I think he was a duke or a prince or something. I’m not exactly sure, but he did own a castle. Sometimes I see pics of her in the royal gossip mags across the pond.
