Lagerfeld may be known for his eccentric personality and super-quotable sayings, but a new Lagerfeld is stealing the spotlight: his cat, Choupette.

Lagerfeld, who is the head of design behind major houses like Chanel and Fendi, undoubtedly spoils his cat rotten – which is why somebody started a fake Twitter page for the ferocious feline on Wednesday, June 6. In that short time the page has gained more than 2,000 followers, which is mostly thanks to Choupette’s fiery, elitist tweets (including a dig at Drew Barrymore–meow!). Here are some of our favourites:

@ChoupettesDiary: “Humans always ask me which I prefer, Paris or NY. Parisians understand me but NY has giant mice…#ToughChoice”

@ChoupettesDiary: “Drew, your Chanel wedding gown was divine but for your next wedding leave the collars to us cats.”

@ChoupettesDiary: “Maid, fetch me my freshly cut meat & crystal servingware MEOW!”

@ChoupettesDiary: “Today’s Goals: Bat my kitten lashes for catnip, knead the tweed,  contemplate how to dye my white locks pastel.”

@ChoupettesDiary: “In my 9 months I have pawed at more Chanel than most women will see in a lifetime. I bask in your envy.”

@ChoupettesDiary: “Baptiste may think he is a muse but only I, Choupette, am Lagerfeld’s true muse. Everything from my whiskers 2 my meows inspire.”

The couture cat also said hello to FLARE but mocked our inferior “human” ways. @ChoupettesDiary: “@FLAREfashion Salut fellow fashion aficionados. (By fellow I am just trying to make you feel better about ur human inferiority)” – Christian Allaire
