When Ryan Seacrest calls you at noon on New Year’s Eve and begs you to fly to NYC before the ball drops so you can fill in for a last-minute cancellation by Justin Timberlake in the big show, if you’re the incomparable, indefatigable Tabs the cat, you make it happen, even if it means chartering a private jet.
In the entertainment business, Tabs had a reputation as a fixer. He was the cat you called when the stakes were high and there was a crisis, and you needed someone of talent and integrity to fix it — someone who could dazzle a crowd at a moment’s notice without any practice.
Most years, Tabs preferred to ring in the new year by staying local and celebrating with his Marin County friends…
But there were a few years, like 2014, when he was needed elsewhere.
It’s hard to believe that last year was his last New Year’s with us… It’ll be different celebrating the start of a new decade without him. 😔
Miss you, buddy. Love you forever. ❤️ Happy New Year. 🎉
