Fashion icon Karl Lagerfeld recently had a heart-to-heart with WWD about his main interests beyond fashion design and dieting. It turns out that the Chanel impresario is more of a crazy cat person than the rest of us, as he revealed while talking about the unusual relationship he shares with his kitten, Choupette:



"She is a famous beauty. She is nine months old. Baptiste gave her to me for Christmas to watch for two weeks when he was away but then I refused to give her back. I thought she was too cute. She is like a kept woman. She has a strong personality. She has lunch and dinner with me on the table, with her own food. She doesn't touch my food. She doesn't want to eat on the floor. She sleeps under a pillow and she even knows how to use an iPad. She has two personal maids, for both night and day. She is beyond spoiled."

In addition to Choupette's kept ways, it appears that Lagerfeld has also taken on the peculiar habit of documenting every whisker of the kitten's existence. Not content to record cat videos to track her antics, Choupette's maids (Note to self: become a cat maid) keep a daily diary, obsessively creating an everlasting record devoted to the details of her luxurious life.

"We do keep a diary," he admits. "When I am not there, the maids take down, in little books, everything she did, from what she ate, to how she behaved, if she was tired, and if she wasn't sleeping. In the nine months, we already have almost 600 pages. Colette had written a lot about cats. I am not Colette, but I think it could be funny to make a little book of Choupette's diary."

Naturally, less than twenty four hours after this story broke, Choupette has already taken paw to iPad, and started a Twitter account of her own. As of this writing, @ChoupettesDiary has already amassed over 1,500 followers, including influencers like Nicky Hilton and V Magazine.

When asked by Fashionista if she was interested in joining any other social media platforms in the future, the pampered puss replied, "Between napping, chasing invisible air particles, and feedings I have little time for such trivial activities." She also refused to comment on the latest trend of severely obese felines, reasoning, "I am part of the fashion community-how do you expect me to answer such a question."

In case you were wondering if Lagerfeld had any plans to translate his ailurophilia into a line of cat clothing, he doesn't. "No, I don't like animals in human clothes," he says. "I think that's very circuslike." While he doesn't advocate dressing up his feline models in clothing, I wouldn't be surprised to see his human ones strutting down the catwalk in Choupette-inspired fashions in the future!

Another SPOILED cat. Aren't ALL cats pretty much spoiled? They don't do anything except laze around. They get their cat hair all over EVERYTHING! Give me a dog any-day!

Wonderful to see a CAT featured in a positive article! SO TIRED of dogs being shoved down our throats. Enough with the mutts -- CATS are the nation's and the world's most beloved companion, for so many excellent reasons!
