When the news broke about Karl Lagerfeld’s death on Tuesday, my first thought was of Choupette, his beloved Birman cat. Choupette was not only the apple of her daddy’s eye, she was a star in her own right with a sizable social media following. She wrote a sweet blog post about her dad’s passing on her website. It is quite possible that Choupette may inherit part of Lagerfeld’s vast fortune estimated at $200 million. According to the Daily Star, Choupette was living a life of luxury – with her own personal bodyguard, multiple maids and an iPad. Lagerfeld had assured, long before his death, he would make sure Choquette would be able to go on living in the style she was accustomed to and once told a French TV station that “Choupette is a rich girl. She has her own fortune”, hinting at the fact she is written into his will.

If you missed any of the stories featured on the Conscious Cat this week, here’s a recap: on Monday, we addressed the topic of responsible cat care, on Tuesday, we introduced you to the Tomlyn® line of supplements, on Wednesday, Allegra and Ruby shared their favorite sun puddles, on Thursday, we reviewed Raw Paws cat food, and on Friday, we introduced you to the cats of Bohemian Rhapsody.

I came across this video of Ruby from a few years ago earlier this week. It still makes me smile. Enjoy!

Have a great weekend!

  1. Choupette my heart and sympathy go out to you for the loss of your beloved Daddy. I just pray you’re not used and abused for your money. Choupette, you are America’s darling feline, and you’ve been a loyal companion. However, when people see dollar bills they sometimes forget how to take care of those persons/creatures to who the dollar bills really belong to. I sincerely and respectively pray this won’t happen to you, Choupette.

  2. Me too! My first thought was, ‘Where’s his cat?’ I’m sure she doesn’t care about the money, but we do like to know she’s taken care of.

  3. We hope Choupette will be alright but it’s going to be hard. She will miss her dad. Ruby was just having a wonderful bath and then playtime started. Thanks for sharing the video. Really cute. Have a wonderful rest of your weekend.

  4. Losing Karl Lagerfeld is a huge loss to the fashion world. he was such an icon. I feel so sad for Choupette. It’s going to be hard for her without her daddy. Karl loved her so much. I know she will still live the good life, but it won’t be the same.
