Last month, Jessica posited that Karl Lagerfeld‘s cat is just like any other cat because it enjoys swatting at its owner’s iPad. Now, the Kaiser has seen fit to clarify that Choupette is not, in fact, some quotidian, servant-less wretch, but a delicate, refined, patrician feline of Marie Antionette-like proportions.
In a recent interview with WWD, the storied icon of late capitalism described his cat’s lifestyle, which sounds a good bit more decadent than that of most humans:
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. She has two personal maids, for both night and day. She is beyond spoiled.
He also “gets” his two cat-maids to keep a diary of the Choupette’s “moods, movements and eating behavior,” because why have a regular communist revolution when you could have a super bloody and vindictive one?
However, as far as tiny Chanel outfits go, Karl dismisses them as “circuslike,” because that would be going too far to humanize an animal. Unlike those other totally necessary accoutrements, cat clothing would just be absurd. Karl Lagerfeld, reasonable and down-to-earth pet owner, has spoken.
