Choupette is the constant feline companion of designer Karl Lagerfeld, creative director at Chanel. She has her own iPad, eats next to Lagerfeld at the table from Goyard china, and has inspired couture collections. Choupette occasionally delivers words of wisdom to her devotees via Twitter, but here for the first time is her complete guide to the art of living. It is full of observations and precious advice from Choupette’s vet, Madame Horn, and her housekeeper and maid, Madame Françoise, who keeps her daily diary.

The book is divided into themed chapters on diet, beauty, healthcare, fashion tips, secret loves and pet hates. This is guaranteed to be this season’s most talked-about cat book, the perfect chic gift for cat lovers, the fashion-conscious and the style-aware.

Patrick Mauriès is a writer and publisher of many notable titles on fashion and design, including Jewelry by Chanel, also published by Thames & Hudson.
