Story goes that, Lagerfeld was cat-stitting for French model Baptiste Giabiconi on Christmas and fell in love with the fluffy kitty. He refused to give her and even went as far to express his desire to marry her. Quoting Karl, “There is no marriage, yet, for human beings and animals… I never thought that I would fall in love like this with a cat,”

I’m going to go crawl into a hole and re-examine my life now. Till then, comment below and tell us how you spoil your pets.

Ps: As cat owner, I’m not one to support ‘humanizing’ pets but only because she is sooo cute, I’m letting this one go!
