Karl Lagerfeld's Cat Has a Better Life Than You

Not your ordinary kitten, Vanity Fair explains, "Karl Lagerfeld’s Cat Has Personal Maids, an iPad, and a More Glamorous Existence Than You." Yes, you read that correctly. Styleite affirms, "Karl Lagerfeld's fancy cat has two maids. TWO MAIDS." Not surprisingly, shortly after Karl's tell-all, Choupette hit stardom — Twitter stardom, that is. WWD confirmed the rumors that "a Twitter account for Karl Lagerfeld's cat, Choupette, appeared on Wednesday after WWD's interview with the designer." Rightly so, British Elle predicts that from now on, the world's most spoiled cat will be referred to as "Choupette Lagerfeld, Twitter queen."
