Karl Lagerfeld wants to marry his cat

06 June 2013, 12:07

Los Angeles - Karl Lagerfeld wants to marry his cat.

The eccentric designer is so besotted with his feline friend, Choupette, he pays for two maids to provide care for her around the clock in Paris.

The Chanel designer also has an iPad for his 22-month-old white Siamese pet - who also has her own Twitter account - and lets her dine at his table.

Karl, 79, said in an interview with US news network CNN he is disappointed there is "no marriage, yet, for human beings and animals. never thought that I would fall in love like this with a cat."

Regular manicures

Choupette - the French equivalent of the English name Herbie - has already gained over 1 200 likes for her own page on Facebook, which features pictures including her eating a king prawn cake prepared for her first birthday last year.

Choupette is brushed twice a day by her two minders, as well as being given regular manicures. Her minders also write down what she does throughout the day so Karl can catch up with it when he gets home.

However, the days are not entirely filled with leisure for Choupette, as she has starred in numerous photo shoots for Chanel and in a video for fashion chain Net-a-Porter.

Karl reportedly adopted the cat after looking after her for two weeks then refusing to give her back to her then-owners.

Speaking of his feline love recently, he talked of her coat as "snow white with touches of caramel around the eyes, ears and on her endless boa-like feather tail".
