14 Reasons Why Karl Lagerfeld's Cat Has It So Much Better Than You

Over the past few years the fashion world has decided to say eff you to dogs and gucci goo (sorry, had to) to cats. The most famous feline of them all is Chanel and Fendi designer Karl Lagerfeld's fluffy white ball of divinity named Choupette. Here's why her life is superior to everyone else's.

1. Her designated sitting places are elegantly labeled.

How would you feel if you came to work one day, and on it was a pillow designed by Karl Lagerfeld that read, "Ici, c'est la place d'Amy Odell" (or, your name). Freaking fabulous, that's how you'd feel.

2. She is the only living thing fabulous enough to keep Karl's ego in check.

"You know, personally, I don't even think I'm that famous," the designer — widely regarded as one of, if not THE world's best — told British Vogue. "Now, Choupette really is famous. She has become the most famous cat in the world. I even get propositioned by pet food companies and things like that, but it's out of the question. I'm commercial. She's not. She's spoiled to death. Obviously." Moving on!


4. She gets to do whatever she wants.

"She has lunch and dinner with me on the table, with her own food. She doesn’t touch my food.," Lagerfeld confessed. "She doesn’t want to eat on the floor." (To be fair, I wouldn't want his food, either.)

6. Her memoirs are being written for her in real time.

Nine months into Choupette's life, her personal maids — Francoise and Marjorie — had taken down 600 pages of diary notes on her every mood, meal, and behavior. And if there's one truth about being a cat it's that mood is never consistent so this is pretty hardcore note-taking.


8. When she's messy or mean, it's charming.

Lagerfeld told i-D: "She loves to destroy paper, that is what she loves to do the most and also driving her beloved maids (Francoise and Marjorie) crazy."

9. Her appearance lends itself to poetic descriptions.

Lagerfeld: "She’s snow white with touches of caramel around the eyes, ears and on her endless boa-like feather tail." When was the last time anyone said something so lovely about your tail?

10. She is referred to in only the most dignified of fashions.

"Her name is Choupette, Princess Choupette or Miss Choupette," Lagerfeld says. And yet she never fails to lose that humble expression that can only be saying, ""
