Karl Lagerfeld’s Cat Has Two Maids And An iPad
Karl Lagerfeld is absolutely hilarious. Remember that time that he described his typical day to Harper’s Bazaar? He said that every day he schedules time to daydream, and he drinks nothing but Diet Coke “from the minute I get up to the minute I go to bed.” He mentioned that he liked to wind down at the end of the day by playing with his cat, and he called her his “spoiled princess,” but he didn’t elaborate much further. I imagined that he had a close relationship with his cat, and I was right. I just didn’t think that their relationship was this close.
From the Daily Mail:
He revealed last year that he could never imagine having children of his own. But Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld seems to be discovering his paternal side after welcoming Choupette the Siamese cat into his Paris home.
Over the past few months the 78-year-old fashion mogul has invested time teaching his female feline the art of fine dining and, gearing her up for the modern world, how to work an iPad. He even congratulated the kitten on her progress by posting a Twitter picture of her busy playing on the Apple device.
“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,” he told WWD.
And while he’s away on business he revealed that he has recruited two personal maids to provide Choupette with round-the-clock care.
He added: “She is beyond spoiled.”
Choupette was given to Lagerfeld by his French model muse Baptiste Giabiconi in January and she has since become his primary preoccupation. He even gets his maids to keep a diary of her moods, movements and eating patterns if he’s not with her.
“In the nine months, we already have almost 600 pages… I think it could be funny to make a little book of Choupette’s diary.”
But we won’t be seeing Choupette fashioning custom-made Chanel wares anytime soon, as Lagerfelddescribed the act of humanising pets as “circuslike.”
This is quite possibly the best thing I’ve ever read. The best thing I’ve ever seen might have to be the picture that Karl took of his kitty in its iPad:
And for comparison, just so we can get a good picture of the luxurious life this cat leads, here’s what my cat is doing right now:
