Kat Daddy

Did you see this interview in Harper's Bazaar Magazine? IT IS HILARIOUS!!!!!!

Kat Daddy

Meet Choupette, kitten to Karl Lagerfeld and fashion's favorite feline. 

By Kristina O'Neill

Kat Daddy Harper's Bazzar interview with Karl Lagerfeld about his cat Choupette

KRISTINA O'NEILL: I'm sorry to hear that Choupette was sick last night.

KARL LAGERFELD: Yes, but she is better. She had eaten something she wasn't supposed to eat. 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.

KO: I'm glad she has 24-hour medical attention.

KL: The doctor had never seen a cat with so many people taking care of her. You know, she has two maids, and the driver takes care of her too.

KO: Are you surprised by how famous she's become?

KL: Unbelievable, no? She doesn't know.

KO: Are you sure she doesn't have an attitude?

KL: She has an attitude like a princess.

KO: Does she meow a lot, or is she a purrer?

KL: No, no, no—everything is done with the eyes. She knows exactly what she wants.

KO: Tell me about her eating habits.

KL: She goes in the kitchen and sits in front of the food. She doesn't like to eat on the floor, so I have to put the food on the table. Her dishes are 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.

KO: Does she have a favorite person besides you?

KL: I hope not! But, yes, the two maids, especially one called Françoise. 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.

KO: Does she get brushed a lot?

KL: Yes, she has to. You know, she has long white hair. Two times a day.

KO: Has she ever used Klorane hair powder like you?

KL: No, never. That's not necessary. Anyway, everything with a spray she hates. Room spray or even perfume—she hates it!

KO: She doesn't like Chanel No. 5?

KL: No, no, no. She likes the smell of juicy food.

KO: So what does she play with?

KL: She likes strange toys, toys that aren't supposed to be toys. She plays with pieces of wood, pieces of paper, shopping bags. She loves shopping bags.

KO: Are they all Chanel?

KL: No, her favorite 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. And when I'm in bed, sometimes she comes and brings all her toys in my bed.

KO: She must have met a lot of people in the fashion industry by now.

KL: Yes, 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.

KO: Does she scratch? Does she have claws?

KL: Yes, the doctor does her manicure. She hates when we do it ourselves. The only time she makes a scandal is then.

KO: How much time a day does she spend sleeping?

KL: Quite a lot. I don't know; I'm not there all the time. But 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.

KO: She wants attention!

KL: Exactly.

KO: Do you wish you'd gotten a cat sooner?

KL: No, I never thought I would like cats.

KO: Because you're a dog person?

KL: I love dogs, but dogs, you have to be in the country with dogs. I cannot walk a dog on the street. Cats take better care of themselves; they like to be alone. Cats are better in the house.

KO: Would you ever think about getting a second cat?

KL: No, no, no, no, no. She's the one.

BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Karl cracks me up. He's such a character that I just don't even know how to take anything he does seriously. Oh, the cat. Sweet kitty. I'm glad she's become his extra appendage. LOL What a spoiled princess.

Much Love,

Kristine said...

Everything that comes out of his mouth is pure gold. Love it. That is one lucky kitty.

Claire Kiefer said...

This is the most ridiculous thing I've heard in a while. He's a caricature. And when that cat dies, he's gonna throw himself off a bridge or something. SHE HAS MAIDS? Ugh.

Dancing Branflake said...

Hahahahaha! I have no clue if he's serious or not! But she is a beauty!

SabinePsynopsis said...

She's the one! Baaahaa. Gee, I LOVE Choupette - she's like KL's alter ego, and sooo spoiled. (But not as cute as Henry, naturally :)

I didn't think it was possible for me to love Karl more, but this just did it.

My kitties are spoiled, but NOTHING like this.

I'm with him on them being okay alone. I couldn't have dogs with how much I travel.

Oh..how funny!! Uncle Karl has a CAT!! I thought I might have stopped loving him, but...I guess I haven't. You can tell his affection is genuine...so funny he seems surprised that she likes to get inside shopping bags...*ha!...pretty much Universal Cat Behavior!

Miss Absinthe said...

That pussy has two maids??? I have a pussy and I don't even have ONE!


E said...

SO many quotables! I love how she makes a "scandal," not a "fuss," because she is high-brow kitty.

KL: No, no, no—everything is done with the eyes. She knows exactly what she wants.

feathermar said...

Because he can afford two maids just to look after his cat, he's eccentric. If he was poor, he'd be crazy!

NellieVaughn said...

Oh my sweet lord! I have to like cats because I am a diehard Redditor, but this is just...a joke?

WendyB said...


Better not let FitzRoy read this or he'll have all kinds of demands.

Kitty Stampede said...

hahahaha and awwwww.....

Lorena said...

OMG.... totally obsessed. I hope i never get like that my my pets, if i do .. pls lock me up.

Emily said...

Holy crap, what a spoiled cat. But this is pretty darn adorable. How sweet! The two-maids-for-a-cat did make my stomach turn a little, but she is obviously very loved, and that's what matters.

May the force be with you.
