The September issue of Harper’s Bazaar has more than some gorgeous “pretty in pink” pictures of Gwen Stefani. It also includes some never-before-seen images of designer Karl Lagerfeld with his Parisian feline, Choupette. Here are some excerpts from Karl’s Q&A:

Tell me about her eating habits: “She does in the kitchen and sits in front of the food. She doesn’t like to eat on the floor, so I have to put the food on the table. Her dishes are by Goyard. She has one for water, one for her little croquette, and one for her pate. You have to serve everything, and she makes a choice.”

When asked if Choupette scratches or has claws: “Yes, the doctor does her manicure. She hates when we do it ourselves. The only time she makes a scandal is then.”

Does she meow a lot, or is she a purrer? “No, no no – everything is done with the eyes. She knows exactly what she wants.”

That is one gorgeous cat! You can read Karl’s entire interview in the September issue of Harper’s Bazaar.
