Every dog has its day, so it’s better to be a cat like Choupette and make each day your own. The late Karl Lagerfeld’s cat, Choupette, turned 11 and in true feline-fashionista style aboard a private jet, surrounded by cake, balloons, and champagne. The Birman cat celebrated her third birthday without Karl Lagerfeld, her daddy, by her side, but it was just as luxuriously planned and executed as he would make it. After the legendary designer died in 2019 at the Hospital Americain in Paris, his beloved pet was trusted to his former governess, Françoise Caçote. She regularly posts on Instagram the niceties of Choupette’s life. The beautiful cat is surrounded by birthday decorations, gifts, and tasty treats by the Karl Lagerfeld brand and cat accessory brand Lucy Balu.

Choupette’s birthday post on Instagram read ‘Happy birthday to me. Thanks to My Pet agency for organizing this little party. While the picture was taken on the private plane, the post specified it stayed grounded at Le Bourget, an airport located north of Paris ‘in memory of the many trips with my daddy.’ Fans of Karl Lagerfeld and his beloved pet inundated Choupette Lagerfeld’s post with several birthday wishes.
