Karl Lagerfeld’s cat Choupette is in mourning after the loss of her beloved “daddy.”
Following the fashion designer’s death Tuesday, the Instagram account for the forlorn feline shares her sorrow.
“Thank you everyone for your words of condolence,” reads a new post from the account, titled “choupettesdiary.”
Accompanied by a crying cat emoji, the post continues, “With a once cold but now simply broken heart, I am going into mourning. I pray that your kind words and well-wishes will help me to put my best paw forward in my future without Daddy @KarlLagerfeld & as my own woman.”
The crestfallen fluffball is pictured in the post wearing a black veil.
Lagerfeld was believed to be 85 at the time of his death in Paris earlier this week, but his exact age was unclear due to him reportedly having more than one birth certificate and purposely contributing to the confusion.
The Instagram account for the former creative director of French fashion house Chanel and Italian fur and leather brand Fendi is dotted with shots of Choupette.
The red point Birman is seen stretching out on a scratching board in one pic, and resting her precious face on fashion books in another. Of course, her own Instagram also boasts hundreds of shots with her famous father and solo.
She’s pictured everywhere from fashion shoots against the backdrop of the Eiffel Tower to cradled in the designer’s arms on a flight.
The downhearted diva won’t have to worry about her well-being though. Lagerfeld told French fashion magazine Numéro that Choupette was one of his heirs. “Don’t worry, there is enough for everyone,” he said.
