What will happen to Karl Lagerfeld's beloved cat, Choupette?
The world-famous kitty was left to the famed fashion designer, who died this week, seven years ago. His feelings for the feline ran so deep, Lagerfeld once told CNN, "There is no marriage, yet, for human beings and animals... I never thought I would fall in love like this with a cat."
Choupette, a Birman cat, became especially renowned for her social media diaries, in which her high-flying life was documented in lavish detail. She has not one but two maids, a bodyguard and a personal chef, and according to a 2015 article in The Cut, Choupette is worth more than $3 million.
With Lagerfeld's passing, Choupette is looking forward, according to Ashley Tschudin, who runs the cat's social media platforms.
In a statement, Tschudin said Choupette is "coping with the loss the best she knows how."
"Karl Lagerfeld is and will always be her 'Daddy,'" the statement continued. "She is choosing to put her best paw forward and hopes that her loyal fans and followers will continue with their outpouring of love to help ease the pain."
Lagerfeld died in Paris early Tuesday after a short illness. He was 85.
