Karl Lagerfeld’s nine-month old Siamese cat, Choupette, has made news for playing with an iPad, and now the designer gives us more insight into the life and origins of his beloved kitty. “Baptiste [Giabiconi] gave her to me for Christmas to watch for two weeks when he was away but then I refused to give her back,” Lagerfeld told WWD. “I thought she was too cute. She is like a kept woman. She has a strong personality. 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.”

So what do the maids’ duties include? “When I am not there, the maids take down, in little books, everything she did, from what she ate, to how she behaved, if she was tired, and if she wasn’t sleeping,” Lagerfeld said. “In the nine months, we already have almost 600 pages. Colette had written a lot about cats. I am not Colette, but I think it could be funny to make a little book of Choupette’s diary.”

But don’t expect to see any Lagerfeld designs on Choupette. “I don’t like animals in human clothes,” Lagerfeld says. “I think that’s very circuslike.”
