Not a day goes by when we don’t chuckle at the tweets or pictures of fashion’s favourite kitty, Choupette. Yesterday we brought you the gallery of pure unadulterated joy, which was Choupette’s latest photoshoot for i-D Magazine.

Today we’ve got our hands on U.S Harper’s most recent interview with Karl Lagerfeld, and joining in the Choupette love-in, it comes as no surprise that they grilled the Chanel boss not on his next collection but on his feline friend, Lady Lagerfeld herself!

We know you’re busy people, so we’ve condensed the latest Choupette tell-all for you GraziaDaily lot. And we guarantee it doesn’t disappoint!

Ten Things You MUST Know About Choupette

  1. Choupette suffered from food poisoning last week. Karl said “They had changed her food because she's grown-up now, and the food was not right yet. So I had the doctor come in the middle of the night.”

  2. Karl insists that fame hasn’t got to her head. “She doesn't know (how famous she's become). She has an attitude like a princess”

  3. She neither meows, nor purrs. A cat of few noises it seems. “Everything is done with the eyes. She knows exactly what she wants.”

  4. She won’t eat on the floor and her dishes are made by Goyard. “She has one for water, one for her little croquette, and one for her pâté. You have to serve everything, and she makes a choice.”

  5. Her favourite member of staff is Francoise, one of her two maids. “They spend hours together and do her beauty jobs, her hair, and all those things, and they have moments of tenderness with her. They have to write in the book exactly what they're doing. Because there's a diary, I know everything.”

  6. Choupette will never be brand ambassador for Chanel No.5. “Everything with a spray she hates. Room spray or even perfume—she hates it!”  

  7. Lady Lagerfeld’s favourite bag is NOT a Chanel one! “Her favourite one is a huge Colette shopping bag that's under the kitchen table. She spends hours in there and brings all her toys in there.”

  8. She prefers Karl not to have pen-pals. “When I'm working, she sits next to me. And when I want to write letters, she sits on the papers because she doesn't want me to write letters.”

  9. Lagerfeld is acting as her manager, now that she has found fame. “Everybody wants her, but I say no! She's really a stunning beauty. Her eyes are blue, blue, blue, blue, blue. And also her movement is so beautiful.”

  10. Choupette will always be an only child. When asked would he ever think about getting a second cat he responded “No, no, no, no, no. She's the one.”
