Following the death of legendary fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld, there is news that his pet cat and companion, Choupette, could inherit millions of dollars. His fluffy, white cat is a global, feline icon. Last year he told fashion magazine Vogue that he would leave part of his estimated $150 million fortune to Choupette. She could inherit millions. She is not exactly short of cash. Lagerfeld said Choupette was the world's "most famous" and "richest" cat. She made $3 million as a model for just two jobs - one for a German car company and the other for a Japanese cosmetics brand.

Lagerfeld admits that he "stole" Choupette from her former owner. He said: "Choupette belonged to a friend of mine who asked if my maid could take care of her...when he was away. When he came back, he was told that Choupette would not return to him." Lagerfeld spent years pampering his cat. She had a diet of crab, smoked salmon and caviar. She had a luxurious lifestyle we can only dream of. She has two maids to look after her. Lagerfeld never let Choupette advertise cat food. He said: "I don't allow her to do foodstuffs....She's far too sophisticated."
