Karl Lagerfeld has catnapped his friend’s Siamese kitten Choupette – and it’s now getting to live the high life. Kaiser Karl says little Choupette eats on, not at, the dining table alongside Karl – he refuses to eat off the floor. The pampered puss sleeps under its own pillow, and has the use of its own iPad.
But craziest of all is that the spoilt moggy has two maids available round the clock to tend to its every need. What does a cat need, exactly, beyond a bowl of Whiskas twice a day and a clean bowl of water once in a while?
But despite his indulgence, Karl draws the line at dressing the cat in Chanel. ‘Animals shouldn’t wear clothes. That is like putting them in the circus,’ he said.
Don’t know about that – I am quite partial to a sausage dog in a little sweater. But what is for certain is that Karl’s kitty kat has made me want my own petit Choupette.
