Everyone I know is probably sick to death of hearing me talk about Karl Lagerfeld, because he is a bastard, but who could ever get tired of hearing about his Siamese cat, Choupette? Not us. Especially when he goes on at length in interviews about how spoiled she is. WWD sought out Karl at the premiere of his “Little Black Jacket” exhibit in NYC, and while his responses to inquiries about Chanel and politics were succinct in typical Karl fashion, the design superstar couldn’t stop gushing about his feline friend. I would even go so far as to say she might be his daughter. Behold:

“She is a famous beauty. She is nine months old. [Model] Baptiste [Giaconi] gave her to me for Christmas to watch for two weeks when he was away but then I refused to give her back. I thought she was too cute. She is like a kept woman. She has a strong personality. She has lunch and dinner with me on the table, with her own food. She doesn’t touch my food. She doesn’t want to eat on the floor. She sleeps under a pillow and she even knows how to use an iPad. She has two personal maids, for both night and day. She is beyond spoiled. … When I am not there, the maids take down, in little books, everything she did, from what she ate, to how she behaved, if she was tired, and if she wasn’t sleeping. In the nine months, we already have almost 600 pages.”

Man Divorces Wife Over Owning 550 Cats

An unnamed guy in Israel divorced his wife this week, after she accumulated 550 cats. The guy complained that he could no longer sleep in the couple’s bed or move around their house because the cats were everywhere. The couple tried counseling, but the woman eventually chose the cats over her husband.

And here’s where I have no sympathy for this dude. Because 550 cats doesn’t just happen overnight. Guy, you had time, say around cat 20 or 30, to voice that you were uncomfortable with the situation. Maybe around cat 100 you could have thrown out an ultimatum. But you didn’t. Instead, you waited until your wife was 550 cats deep before you took some action. So this problem is just as much yours as it is hers. Just as a 1,000 pound man doesn’t just suddenly wake up and realize that he needs the fire department to come and break him out of his own living room, owning 550 cats is a problem that develops over time.

I will say though, that I’m sure the ammonia smell from the litter box was probably no picnic. [Times of Israel]

I happen to think kuh-razy Karl Lagerfeld is the tops, most especially in a mankini, but for those who don’t find his mercurial behavior quite as charming, here’s something that’s basically impossible not to get all mushy about: this morning, Karl (or his publicist) tweeted this photo of his adorable kitten, Choupette, playing on an iPad. Predictably, it is to die for. [Fashionista]

Pallas cats are like the farty, pissed off cousins of your basic house cat. They are way cute, but also have a perma-scowl on their little cat faces. That might be because they are considered a near-threatened species, according to the International Union for the Conservation of Nature. Or it could be because they just don’t like you. In any case, here’s a bunch of wild pallas kittens giving you the gas face. [YouTube]

Cats live very stressful lives. You might not have known it, because they hide it very well, with all their fur licking, sleeping, pooping and general air of cool detachment and remove. But if this video of a cat enjoying the spoils of a neck massager is any indication, cats need all the relaxation they can get. [YouTube]

Instagram is the latest billion-dollar craze, but you probably won’t see me hopping on the bandwagon. I am biologically averse to anything that leads millions of middle schoolers with iPhones to believe that they are, in fact, skilled photographers. The pictures aren’t terrible, but I hesitate to call anything produced by a smartphone app “art.” I guess it really just depends whose hands it falls into, because British fashion photographer Nick Knight has defied my reasoning with the first-ever high fashion Instagram shoot.

An Open Audition For The Purr-fect Black Cat

The year was 1961. Vincent Price needed a black cat for his new movie, “Tales of Terror.” An open audition was held. The results, captured by Life magazine photographer Ralph Crane, are a little ridiculous, a little spooky, and totally awesome. See more photos from the series over at Bored Panda.
