She's the world's coolest kitty, doted on by her owner Karl Lagerfeld; a cat with nine lives, two maids, one personal jet and a penchant for pate. And now, exclusively for [a href="/LatestIssue/archive/2012/09/18/in-this-weeks-issue--victoria-beckhams-secret-fashion-week-photos-plus-karl-lage.htm">Grazia's Big Fashion Issue[/a], Karl throws open his personal iPhone archives and imagines her day. Stay tuned to Grazia Daily as each day this week, we will be bringing you Choupette's diary - beginning today with her morning routine...


We are early risers, Karl and I. As soon as the sun is up, we are up and very busy.  I have my stretching exercises to do. And almost as soon as Karl is awake, he is drawing.


There is a pad of drawing paper near the bed and a huge box of Shu Uemura eyeshadow palettes. He prefers to draw with those over anything else. He says the colours are amazing.


I am often called upon to give Karl advice about what to wear. I saunter through the dressing room and give my considered opinion.


He thinks my white hair doesn’t look so good on his black jackets but frankly I can’t see what the fuss is about. He’d have something to complain about if I was a ginger Tom.


I also have strong opinions about cologne. Frankly I think Karl could be more adventurous with his choice but then I guess humans are not blessed with a feline sense of smell.


Breakfast is some choice cuts of croquettes and pate en sauce. It is prepared by one of the two marvellous ladies who help Karl around the house. They are called Françoise and Marjorie and we are very close.


Many felines have a difficult time training their humans to understand their particular needs. I have found the opposite, I would recommend to any pet who would like to be pampered to find a home with a fashion icon.


Because they are such dears, I do try to take time out of my busy schedule to help Francoise and Marie with some housework.


I like dusting. I love sweeping. But I won’t get my paws wet. I have been known to get busy with the dustbin on collection day. The less said about that the better, probably.
