Karl Lagerfeld's Cat Choupette Could Inherit His Entire Fortune

Late fashion designer Karl Largerfeld's seven-year-old cat may end up inheriting his vast fortune.

With the death of Chanel's creative director Karl Lagerfeld, attention has now turned to his seven-year-old cat Choupette, who could be set to inherit his vast fortune.

In a blog post 'written by' Choupette (totally normal behaviour) following Lagerfeld's death, Choupette says that her "Daddy" Karl's memory will live on forever.

"May Daddy Karl Lagerfeld’s memory will live on forever through his work and may we never forget the creative genius who now sits in heaven beside Mommy Coco Chanel," the blog post reads.

The special bond between the designer and the white Birman whom he adopted in 2011, has been well-recorded throughout the years, with Lagerfeld even saying that he would marry Choupette if he was allowed.

With no children or partner, it's expected that the fancy feline will inherit a sizeable slice of his fortune to maintain the lifestyle to which she's become accustomed.

The only other person who's been mentioned as a possible beneficiary is Lagerfeld's godson Hudson Kroenig. The son of Brad Kroenig, one of the designer's favourite male models, was born in 2009 and has appeared on a number of runways with his late godfather.

While the exact figure of Lagerfeld's fortune isn't exactly clear, it's being reported as anywhere from AU$200 - $250 million, which is a whole lot of Fancy Feast ... or whatever the Chanel version of Fancy Feast is.

With tributes pouring in over social media, many are wondering what will become of Karl's little angel.

Other Pets Who've Inherited A Fortune

Gunther IV -- the world's richest German Shepherd

This pampered pooch actually inherited his fortune from his father Gunther III, who was left AU$80 million by his owner, German Countess and multi-millionaire Karlotta Liebenstein, when she died in 1991.

It looks like a really hard life being a dog worth hundreds of millions of dollars.

Gunther IV even owns a Miami home that Madonna once lived in. There are plenty who question whether any of it is real because of reports that the house was just bought as part of a publicity stunt.

Trouble -- an actual 'Rich Bitch' 

That's exactly what the headlines read when real estate developer and "Queen of Mean" Leona Helmsley left Trouble AU$16.7 million upon her death in 2007. It was later revised down to AU$2.7 million, which still isn't bad for a DOG.

Conchita -- the Cartier-wearing Chihuahua

Gail Posner, the daughter of business mogul Victor Posner, died in 2010 leaving her three dogs, including her beloved Conchita a total of AU$36.4 million inheritance.

Gail's only son was left particularly miffed when it was revealed his mother had only left him £600,000...
