Sundays With Tabs the Cat, Make-up and Magnificence Weblog Mascot, Vol. 806

Howdy, good friend. How’s it hopping? Hope you’re having a hoppy Easter. 🐰

At the moment I couldn’t assist however suppose again to all of the enjoyable Easters we had with Tabs. That cat made the whole lot really feel like an occasion. A part of it was his character. He was a boy cat, had that assured swagger. He could possibly be calm, even round a bunch of youngsters, automobiles and different loud noises. He’d simply casually lick his paw, sluggish blink, roll over and flash his tum. Little issues didn’t section him.

He additionally cherished consideration, which he bought quite a lot of additionally due to this weblog and the place I used to be in life. We labored on the weblog collectively. He was each my employer (hehe!) and my artistic muse. For a lot of, a few years I labored hours and hours every single day running a blog, and Tabs was proper there for all of it. He cherished each picture shoot, or at the very least he appeared to, even after I was bossing him round. “Come right here, Tabs! OK, image time. There you go. Have a look at me, take a look at the digital camera! Good boy!” And I’d be snapping away with my digital camera. He’d simply meow, saunter over and flash his beautiful tum once more.

On holidays like Easter, I’d gown him up in, sure, a custom-made felt cat collar or different flashy outfit, and he’d go together with it for a photograph shoot. It all the time took numerous footage to get one, as is mostly all the time the case for running a blog or social media. The pics look good more often than not, however you know the way it’s. It in all probability took 12 pictures to get one good one. That’s how it’s.

However, I child you not, each time I’d take down his costume field / wardrobe from the closet, Tabs would come operating from wherever he was in the home. I’d hear a thud from someplace upstairs (him leaping down from a counter or the mattress to the ground), after which doomp, doomp, doomp from his paws on the ground and down the steps. He knew it meant we have been 1) going outdoors for a stroll and a couple of) going to be spending time collectively. Two issues he cherished.

The character we conveyed on the weblog was his and mine. Certain, I added one thing to the combo. I imply, cats usually don’t keep a Spring to-do listing. 🙂 However I don’t suppose it was removed from the reality both.

To me and our household, Tabs was bigger than life. He was a celeb to us, and he gave pretty much as good as he bought. He cherished the eye. He might not have been “posing for the digital camera,” per se, however he was posing for me.

Connor nonetheless remembers him and talks about him when she sees his pics. She is aware of he was her first animal good friend, and I like that they’ve so many footage collectively due to the weblog. Lots of if not hundreds of images from the 4 years they’d collectively earlier than Tabs handed.

Rosie is our cat now and he or she’s our particular feline member of the family, however I do miss the theatricality of life with Tabs. He was the proper cat on the good time in my life, and I’ll all the time cherish it.

Thanks, buddy. Pleased Easter, Tabs. Love and miss you all the time.

Your pleasant neighborhood magnificence addict,
