Karl Lagerfeld is selling Choupette, his pet cat — for S$700

Karl Lagerfeld’s kitten is no ordinary Birman pet cat. Besides being Lagerfeld’s sole four-legged muse, Choupette is the only living cat with a Wikipedia page stating her exact date of birth, a dedicated Shu Uemura makeup collection, and a Vogue cover spread co-starring supermodel Gisele Bündchen. Solidified with 99.3k-strong following on Instagram, she’s undoubtedly the most iconic feline in fashion.

Even if you have nine lives, chances of crossing paths with Choupette in your lifetime may be close to nought. But now that Karl Lagerfeld is selling his prized pet — in a stuffed plush toy version, that is — you can have Choupette as your cuddle buddy for the price tag of €459 (S$700).

Limited to just 2,000 pieces, this indulgent plaything from Lagerfeld is a collector’s item made in collaboration with Steiff, a German plush toy maker. Choupette comes accompanied with a signed certificate (she has her own autograph, by the way), along with a brief description that reads: “Hi, I’m Choupette. Without modesty, I am the most famous cat in the world. I must admit I was born under a lucky star — at a very young age, I met the man of my dreams: Karl Lagerfeld! It really was immediate and mutual ‘love at first sight!'”

Sure, this Choupette isn’t the real deal, yet it does make a cheeky gift for Chanel devotees, or a witty addition to your living space. It also doesn’t hurt that you won’t have to deal with the woes of her shedding fur all over your floor.
