When work and the stresses of daily life get overwhelming, we’ve been known to hit up YouTube for some light relief (mostly watching videos of cats doing funny things). And now our two great loves - that’s fashion and cats, natch - are combined as fashion’s favourite kitty, Choupette Lagerfeld, has launched her own Twitter account! Ladies and gents, start following @ChoupettesDiary pronto!
Karl’s feline friend has already made quite a name for herself. We know she has two - yes, TWO - personal maids (read more about Mr Lagerfeld's love for her here) and is rather handy with an iPad so it makes sense that she's joined the Twittersphere, right? And since the account launched (just 24 hours ago!), King Karl’s pampered princess has already racked up an impressive 1803 followers and is clearly a pro at 140-character quips. 'I may be tech savvy but I don't DO my own fur,' one tweet says. 'I have groomers for such beautifying processes.'
To celebrate the launch of Karl’s kitty’s social media breakthrough, Fashionista.com interviewed the white fluffy creature and it is ridiculously hilarious! We’ve brought you the best bits...
Which of [Karl’s] houses do you live in?
I have grown accustomed to traveling the world with Daddy (to you brainless humans that’s Mr. Lagerfeld) but my temperament fits best in Paris; they understand me there.
Do you scratch his furniture?
I would do no such thing; I am quite refined I will have you know!
Where do you sleep?
Typically I find comfort in piles of last season’s Chanel, which are no longer of use to Daddy.
Are you allowed to sit on Karl’s lap? Does he use a lint roller?
I prefer not to be touched. His gloved hands do a number on my pure white fur.
Why did you decide to start a Twitter?
I felt it was time to show the fashion world the REAL Choupette. My social media savvy tendencies are unprecedented in the cat world.
Are you interested in joining any other social media platforms like Foursquare or Instagram?
Between napping, chasing invisible air particles, and feedings I have little time for such trivial activities.
How many followers do you hope to get?
Only humans count their friends by the number of followers they have.
What are your thoughts on the recent trend of severely obese felines, like the late ‘Meow’ and the new one, Garfield, who weighs 40 lbs?
I am part of the fashion community–how do you expect me to answer such a question…
What does French cat food taste like?
Better than American food (note: I did not say American CAT food)
Are you declawed?
How would my maids paint my nails then?
What’s your litter box like?
A cat as refined as myself does not discuss such private matters. Next question please.
Do you like your maids or does their constant monitoring get a little creepy?
My maids are just like every other human: useless and easy to manipulate.
