Meow That’s What I Call a Cat Perch: Francie & Hammy Review Akemi Tanaka

After much insistence by this interviewer, famous Fab cats Francie and Hammy graciously review the Curve Pet Bed by designer Akemi Tanaka, featured in tonight’s Pets Shop.


Francie, before we get started, would you please explain how you came to live in this apartment?

Francie: I’d be glad to. My human moms rescued me from a rooftop, oh gosh, years ago now. It was really by luck. I was kind of down and out, roaming around alleys. I stopped running with a street pack, but on my own I was feeling pretty low. I was also pregnant. Yeah, it was a really rough time for me. When I was up on the roof, thinking about my life, I happened to turn and caught a glimpse of two humans in their kitchen. And I just knew immediately that they were my people. So I meowed at them, nonstop, for three days. Late at night, when I thought all was lost, I heard a clanging against the roof. My moms bravely and heroically climbed up a rusty ladder to save me, and brought me home.

That’s an amazing story, Francie. Thank you for sharing. Now, Hammel, how about you?

Hammel: You can call me Hammy. Everybody does.

Thank you. Hammy?

Hammy: Well, Francie is my real mom. I was born in our human moms’ closet, next to a pile of shoes.

Luna The Fashion Kitty x Bradford = PURRRFECTLY FAB.

It started innocently enough: a few months back, Jason received a photo of a cat in a box, and sent it around to the rest of the team. It got crazy pretty fast: people broke their personal “reply all” rules, someone started a Tumblr, and a new office obsession was born.

Her name is Luna The Fashion Kitty, and she’s, well, as close to purrrfection as humanly petly possible. We sent her a Pei Pod. She sent us photos. And coffee cups. And lots more photos—Luna likes to “dress fur impress,” as she says. (Meows?) Bradford tried to fight the feeling (he said he wasn’t a cat person), but in the end, he fell head over paws in love with Luna, and she with him. A match made in Fab heaven. 

We’re sure you know this already, but today is National Answer Your Cat’s Questions Day—and Luna had a few for her new purrrtner Bradford. Happy NAYCQ, everyone!

"OMG i’m not sure what photo to use! Maybe the feather dress i wore last Caturday??" 

Bradford, you are clearly MEGAFAB.COM. When you knew that it was your mission to help the rest of the purrsons that weren’t born with style at all?

As a young boy, I would dress in lemon-colored blazers and Ray Bans and line my walls with rock posters. So, basically, I was born this way. I’ve always pushed color on people, friends, family. Now I am pushing color on more people, but nothing’s changed. I was put on this earth to be colorful. 

All my fans want to know if by any chance you are a sperm donor?!?

That is something we have NOT sold on Fab. Yet!

How on Earth do you control yourself fur not shop 24/7 living in NYC?

I shop too much. Thankfully, my job is to shop! How PURRFECT is that? It’s not just NYC, either: I have been traveling the world, from India to Germany, finding great things for Fab.

From all the places that you have visited, where do you think I would look more pretty fur a photo shoot?

I think you’re made for Paris, Luna! You’d be a Purresian hit in a beret, on top of the Eiffel Tower!

It is the end of the world and you have to save one Diva. Which one would you save, and why?

Oh God. I love Cyndi Lauper, she’s my first choice. But the more I think about it, Madonna deserves to be saved. Perhaps my mother? No, no, no—I would save you, Luna. You’ve inspired more people than anyone else on my list!

I know you are a proud shopaholic like me, so I want to know if you want to be my purrsonal shopper.

Yes! Whenever I find fab pet designs, I always think of my #1 muse—you!

Your apartment is TO DIE FUR. What’s your favorite piece?

My purrrple sofa.

Bradford, I know you love tattoos. Would you consider to have my super cute face on you?

Yes. But where, Luna? Your face would be adorable on my bicep, don’t you think?

Let’s face it: you are a total egocentric like me. How many paintings of yourself do you have?

Too many to count!

Fur sure you a superpawsome resumé. What is the thing you are most proud of?

Building Fab. Falling in love. Making my parents proud. And making people smile.
