The Chanel frontman has discussed the special connection he has with his cat Choupette. Karl is surprised by how much he adores his precious kitty and admits there is no room in his heart for anyone else.
“She’s The One,” Karl told Harper’s Bazaar. “I never thought I would like cats… and no, I’d never think of getting a second.”
The pampered pet is treated to a life of luxury by the eccentric designer. As well as a team of staff dedicated to ensuring Choupette’s wellbeing, the cat receives manicures and shopping excursions. Choupette has also developed a modeling career, with photoshoots in i-D magazine and Harper’s Bazaar. Like most models, Karl’s cat is also fussy about her 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,” Karl said. “You have to serve everything, and she makes a choice.”
The silver-haired star speaks about Choupette like he does his human muses. Just as Chanel’s coveted fashion items are much sought after by the fashion pack, so is Karl’s feline.
“She knows exactly what she wants. She has an attitude like a princess,” Karl revealed. “Everybody wants her, but I say no!”
