Martha Stewart Makes Karl Lagerfeld Look Normal In A Crazy Cat People Faceoff

Karl Lagerfeld vs. Martha Stewart: who is the stranger pet owner? It’s a tough call. On one hand, we have Karl, whose Siamese cat (Choupette!) inspired a Chanel couture collection and has two personal maids who keep a diary on her behalf. On the other, we have Martha, who named her kittens Emperor Ch’in (after…

Move Over, Blake Lively, There’s A New Chanel Mews In Town … I Mean, Muse

Choupette Lagerfeld is my literal spirit animal in that she is, in fact, an animal, and also happens to really speak to my spirit, so there you have it. Just when I thought the gloriousness quotient of Karl’s legendary Siamese had finally been capped due to overload, what with recent reports of a photoshoot and…

The Cat’s Out Of The Bag! The Choupette Purse, Coming Soon To A Chanel Store Near You

I used to think I was the craziest cat lover alive, but Karl Lagerfeld is giving me a serious run for my money. The Chanel designer, exalted for his stern, stubborn approach to fashion, diet, not getting massages, and basically everything else ever, has been a bit more subdued since he acquired the famously beautiful…

A Felt Kitten Brooch Is The Best Kind Of Brooch

I’m not usually into brooches, but this felt kitten brooch is a totally different story. First of all, it’s so adorable I make involuntary squeaking noises whenever I look at it. Second of all, it’s soft felt, so you can pet it when you’re sad. And finally, it’s totally versatile: I can’t think of one…

Karl Lagerfeld Tweets An Amazing Photo Of His Kitten, Choupette

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 a…

Pallas Kittens Don’t Give A Damn

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…

The First High Fashion, Internet-Inspired Instagram Photoshoot, Brought To You By Nick Knight

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.”…

Proof That People Have Been Dressing Up Cats Since Forever

In 1915, Harry Whittier Frees published a book called The Little Folks of Animal Land. In it, Frees dressed up kittens and puppies in a bunch of human scenarios and created comical scenes. Because people have generally always loved laughing at animals in people clothes — long before ICanHazCheeseburger figured it out. Click through for…

Rag Doll Kittens In The Middle Of A Nap

These are some sleepy and adorable kittens, aren’t they? Makes you just want to get in the middle of this cuddle puddle. [Buzzfeed]…

What Do Fashion Ad Campaigns Need More Of? Cats, Duh.

If there is one thing in this life that I know for absolute certain, it’s that everything is better with cats (if you disagree, I don’t want to hear it; your argument is moot). I adore cats, and I also adore fashion, so when the two unite — which they often do — I’m i…

Four Cranky Kittens Waking Up

These adorable little fluffernutters are a little bit cranky this morning. They’ve just been woken up by their owner, and would probably prefer to get another 12 hours of nap time in. These little British Shorthair kittens just wanna sleep, dammit, but since they’re up, would you mind getting them a bowl or three of…

Feeling Very French Feline

Just a cat with a better beret collection than you or me. Really loving the vaguely-cross-eyed look of contempt captured in the picture on the right. I feel you, buddy, I feel you. [Farpitzs]…

David Cross Hosts Special Episode Of “Cat Soup”

In three minutes, David Cross — taking over for Joel McHale on “Talk Soup” — manages to completely decimate the entirety of cat videos on the web, covering both adorable kittens, and cute fat cats. He also gets the sad desperation one feels when one wants to completely eat all the cats in the world.

Karl Lagerfeld Has A Kitten Named Choupette

Karl Lagerfeld isn’t exactly warm, fuzzy and cuddly , but dang, his new kitten is! Herr Karl adopted a new kitty, named Choupette (a French term of endearment), which is also what Herbie the Love Bug was nicknamed in those “Herbie” movies. The idea of Karl having a sweet little kitten seems quite at odds with…

While You Were Out, Your Cats Were Throwing A Banger

I would be so stoked if I could be half as relaxed and mellow as the cat in the party hat in the bowl is. That guy doesn’t even raise a whisker at the party hat intrusion. In fact, all of these cats seem suspiciously laid back about wearing stupid human hats, given the general…

Drunk Kittens On The Prowl

These two little guys just got back from the vet, and are still feeling a little woozy from the painkillers they received. So yes, they appear a little drunk-y, and actually remind me of what I typically look like after a long, vodka-soaked night out, complete with accidentally stepping in my own food bowl. [YouTube]…

Meet A Grown-Ass Woman Who Is Scared Of Kittens

Hey, look, I don’t like snakes. I don’t like snakes because I fundamentally disagree with an animal that doesn’t have legs. I just think that is WRONG, mmkay? But you know what? Live and let live. Sandra, as featured in Animal Planet’s “My Extreme Animal Phobia,” happens to think that kittens are the devil’s work.
