Most Popular Feline Tweeter: Choupette
Welcome back to the Scratchpad - the news blog for cat lovers.
This week: Supposedly the world’s famous cat is Choupette, designer Karl Lagerfield's most recent addition to his family.
Since Lagerfield, adopted the new kitten in January, his cat 's popularity has outgrown his own! Choupette’s twitter account has over 11,000 followers and she’s a fairly outspoken feline. ;)
A few of recent tweets:
“I much prefer the feeling of a @Chanel tweet jacket on my fur to the touch of a doctor's rubber gloves.”
“Why do humans insist on speaking 2 me in baby talk? I'm not ur wailing infant, I'm a highly intellectual feline.”
“If I ever start modeling, I wonder which agencies will fight over me…”
Apparently, she’s so famous that pet food companies have been trying to talk Lagerfeld into having her become one of their spokes-kitties. Unfortunately, Lagerfeld does not think this will ever happen.
"I even get propositioned by pet food companies and things like that," said Lagerfeld. "But it's out of the question. I'm commercial. She's not."
Choupette enjoys the luxury of being waited on hand and foot by two maids.Those two maids document every little thing she does as record it in a diary. Lagerfeld already says after 9 months of having the cat, her diary is already 600 pages long. So what exactly is there to record?
"She loves to destroy paper, that is what she loves to do the most and also driving her beloved maids (Francoise and Marjorie) crazy. With me she is sweet and calm."
Oh and did I mention, Choupette has her very own Ipad and may play with it whenever she wishes?
