Happy birthday, Choupette! The famed feline will celebrate her fourth birthday today, August 15!


Choupette’s life so far has been a charmed one. Baptiste Giabiconi received Choupette as a gift, but when he went on Christmas holidays he asked Karl Lagerfeld to watch her. Two weeks of cat-sitting transformed into an adoption! Karl had fallen for the kitten’s charms and asked to keep her. From that moment on, they have been inseparable!
