Sundays With Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 578

Tabs was a real dynamo, in more ways than one. He was also a skilled dynamo operator.

Dynamo, as in one of those emergency radios with the hand crank you can turn to juice them up. I’ll never forget the time we lost power at the home office for three days, and Tabs kept the entire office running through sheer force of will and gravy-fueled feline ingenuity.

If you heard him tell it, he would say that he did what he had to do…to keep kitty modeling, because this was back in 2014, which was at the peak of his modeling career. He always had a full plate of gigs lined up, and he did that week too.

When the power went out around 8 a.m. on that fateful Tuesday, Tabs was shooting a photo spread for Chanel…

But he didn’t panic. Not for a second. He kicked it into high gear. He knew he had to keep the photography lights on and needed to be able to hear the news, so he pulled out his trusty emergency radio and started cranking.

Then he climbed up on the roof and made sure the office solar array was working.

Thankfully, it was! So we were able to keep the lights on AND the gravy refrigerator running.

Ours was the only building in the neighborhood that had power, so Tabs invited all the local kitties who didn’t have power at home over to the office so they could store their gravy in the company fridge.

That’s just the kind of cat he was. 😊

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen
