The late fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld has left some of his $200 million (Sh20b) fortune to his cat.
The German designer, who was the creative director for Chanel and Fendi, died in Paris on Tuesday.The designer became a devoted cat owner and lavished attention on his pet after Choupette was given to him in 2012.
Lagerfeld told French magazine Numero last year that he had named the birman cat as one of the heirs of his estate.
In the interview, he said Choupette was in his will, “among others”. But he added: “Don’t worry, there is enough for everyone.”
According to BBC, Choupette already has a substantial fortune to her name, having earned $3m (Sh300m) doing adverts for a German car firm and a Japanese cosmetics brand with Lagerfeld.
In a separate interview with Numero, Lagerfeld revealed he employed two maids to look after the pampered animal who, he said, has “four different dishes prepared for her” each day “served in fabulous bowls”.
He also made Choupette a social media sensation, with her own Twitter and Instagram accounts that have a combined following of about 200,000.
