The Cat With a HK$500,000 Birthday Wish List

Aug 16, 2017

One has to wonder if Choupette, Karl Lagerfeld’s pet cat is garnering more attention than Lagerfeld himself. To celebrate Choupette’s birthday, Karl just released her birthday wish list on his blog, and as you can guess, it features quite a few designs that he himself worked on. In addition, there are some luxurious jaunts to French hotels, a pawdicure, private jets and you know, a few other items you would expect of the feline upper-class.


Now the list itself gained some buzz, and while it's clear it's a hypothetical wish list, we wanted to know: how much would this birthday actually cost? It seems no one else is asking the same question, so we did some digging ourselves. Here’s the approximate breakdown:

Choupette's Birthday Wish List: A Cost Breakdown
