She already lives a life of luxury complete with the full time service of two maids, and is raking in millions a year thanks to lucrative modelling contracts. No, we’re not talking about the next famous Hollywood “It” Girl; we’re talking about a cat. Choupette, who is owned by Chanel and Fendi creative director Karl Lagerfeld, is said to have had a monstrously successful 2014, with her owner divulging she made $4.25 million last year thanks to jobs with Japanese beauty brand Shu Uemura and the 2015 Corsa Calendar. One ad you won’t see her in any time soon though? Anything food related, as Lagerfeld says she is “too sophisticated for that.” If you want to follow Choupette’s travels, you can check out her Instagram account.

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.

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.
