Sundays With Tabs the Cat, Make-up and Magnificence Weblog Mascot, Vol. 742

Hello, buddy. Merry Christmas.

I hope you had an exquisite vacation. Sending greatest needs for pleasure, success — good well being, most significantly, for you and your family members, as a result of nothing else issues extra.

It’s humorous, however I used to be simply occupied with Christmases and this put up sequence, Sundays With Tabs. I began the weblog in 2007, so that is the…fifteenth Christmas for Make-up and Magnificence Weblog.

It’s onerous to even fathom, however I’ve been typing phrases and taking pics for this web site for a substantial a part of my life. There are literally youngsters in highschool proper now who weren’t even born once I began it.

I gotta say, it blows my thoughts!

Thanks for sticking round and never instantly clicking away, like, “What the $#@& is that this place!? What the heck did I click on? Is that this a web site about cats???”

Sure, mainly. I imply, just about. Cats, make-up, actuality TV recs. Largely nonsense actually.

Ha! However significantly, it’s. 😊 And that’s OK with me as a result of I do know your actual life is critical. Similar to me, you have got large issues. You’ve got belongings you fear about. You’ve got hopes and fears. You might have goals. Generally you have got hassle sleeping (who doesn’t, proper?). I’m certain you are feeling melancholy about some issues, similar to I do. Sure issues make you are feeling dangerous about your self, and I’m assuming this since you’re human (or a cat!), and I feel most individuals really feel a number of the identical issues. We undergo a number of the identical challenges over the course of a life, simply at completely different moments.

Truthfully, I don’t know the place I used to be going with this aside from to say that I’ve been running a blog for one million years. God keen, I’ll be running a blog for one million extra. 😂

Since I take pleasure in these 15 years of perspective about this entire running a blog factor, generally I’ll look again on the entire span of time and sure issues will stand out. One in every of them is how Tabs, who handed away slightly over three years in the past now however was an enormous a part of my inspiration for running a blog, would — and I child you not about this — actually and actually seem to sit up for the hoopla I put him by way of to take the vacation footage I took and shared of him.

I’m not kidding! I imply, placing on the outfits, coaxing him to take a look at the digicam, generally bribing him with treats, enlisting El Hub to face behind the digicam waving a feather cat teaser toy to get his consideration — frankly, the methods of the pet running a blog commerce. Yup, generally to get a very good pic of Tabs wanting dreamily into the digicam took A LOT of labor. Generally dozens and dozens of images to get one nice one.

However but…irrespective of what number of pics it took or how a lot time, Tabs by no means walked away. He by no means swatted me in disgust — not as soon as. If I set him down on the bottom, he stayed proper there, proper by my toes giving kitty hugs, and I don’t suppose I’m simply convincing myself of this. I actually consider that he loved himself. I additionally consider he beloved me, and he beloved kindness and a spotlight. I swear, in his cat means, he beloved the fantasy I constructed up round him. 💕

If some folks may be bigger than life, then so can some cats.


We obtained up fairly early this morning and all got here downstairs for our Christmas and to open presents. Performed Christmas music on the Amazon Echo, made our coffees and sizzling sweets, and Rosie was proper there with us the entire time.

In fact, the crinkling paper from the present unwrapping is nearly unimaginable for a cat to withstand, and he or she was throughout it. Her grandparents (my mother and pop) additionally obtained her some new toys, which she promptly proceeded to lose underneath numerous items of furnishings.

Now the day is over, and Rosie is nowhere to be discovered…

I feel she drained herself out with the festivities right this moment and located a quiet spot to nap, however after we all go upstairs to mattress, assured she’ll observe us up, as a result of she at all times, at all times sleeps in our mattress.

She’s an essential a part of the household now. 😊

Your pleasant neighborhood magnificence addict,
