Private jets, two maids and a personal chef: The pampered life of Karl Lagerfeld’s pet cat

She is a pampered princess who travels the globe in a private jet, flanked by her loyal bodyguard and two maids who tend to her every need. Her sapphire-blue eyes have inspired a Chanel haute couture collection, and she is a Twitter queen with over 40,000 followers. But then, it’s no wonder life is fabulous when you’re legendary fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld’s beloved cat.

A new book, Choupette: The Private Life of a High-Flying Fashion Cat, lifts a veil on the glamorous lifestyle of the couture kitty, with chapters on her diet, beauty, healthcare, and fashion tips. Written by Patrick Mauriès and Jean-Christophe Napias, the book features photographs taken by Lagerfeld himself, as well as Choupette’s bodyguard and maid. Here CNN shares a selection of images of the pampered puss along with a peek into Choupette’s refined lifestyle as detailed in the new book.
