If you were under an illusions that Karl Lagerfeld is sane....then read on.....As you should be aware (you really should be) KL has a cat, nay, kitten called Choupette. This is possibly the most spoiled kitten in France - nay, the world......
WWD: Do you have a cat?
K.L.: A very famous white Siamese cat, Choupette. She
is a famous beauty. She is nine months old. [Model] Baptiste [Giaconi]
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.
WWD: Could your next book be about cats then?
K.L.: Why not? We do keep a diary. 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.
So there you have it. The cat according to Karl. Just don't sit on a cushion if you are ever round his gaff....his cat might be under it...I imagine that's enough to keep you off the Chanel Christmas card list......
