Attention fancy cat lovers of Florida! 7 Persian kitties are up for adoption at the Humane Society of Tampa Bay. I know what you’re thinking… you want one, but you’re hesitant because purebred pussy’s pricey. The vet bills, the grooming, and the costly breed-specific food. I get it; I owned a Persian. She was an XXPEN$IVE princess! But these cats are unique because they come with a built-in fortune. WFLA reports that their late owner, Nancy Sauer, left them a $300,000 inheritance when she passed away last November. That’s almost $43,000 per puss! Sigh. Yet another reason to be jealous of cats.
Royal historian Marlene Koenig was doing a remote interview with the BBC to lend her expert opinion on the tabloid phone hacking trial involving Prince Harry. No offense, but snoooore. Luckily, Marlene’s interview was injected with a little drama when her cat, Fleur Victoria, jumped into the shot. All she wanted was to lie on her human’s lap, and, usually, what Fleur wants, Fleur gets. But, on this day, Marlene wasn’t willing to share the spotlight (RUDE). She caught Fleur mid-jump, smoothly depositing her off-camera before answering presenter Sally Bundock’s question. Professional? Maybe. An anti-feline hate crime? Definitely.
According to all those teen magazines I read as a child, hitting their 30s is practically a death sentence. Backaches, and no more going to da club without looking like a meemaw/pa?! Might as well just pass away quietly. However, reality has shown me that rather than fall into a cemetery plot; you can celebrate your thirty decades and continue to live a full, beautiful life. Such is the case with Rosie, who lives in the city of Norwich in England. Rosie just turned 32, making her likely to be the world’s oldest pussy!
Open Post: Hosted By Karl Lagerfeld’s Cat, Choupette, Turning Down Her Invitation To Tonight’s Met Gala
Tonight’s Met Gala theme, Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty, will surely bring a delightfully tacky coterie of black blazers, neckties, folding fans, powdered wig ponytails, and hater shades. But one refreshing element many were looking forward to was the late Karl’s beloved 12-year-old cat, Choupette Lagerfeld, accepting her invitation to the event and asshole-out strutting down the red carpet as the fashion community creams their tailored black suit pants. But, perhaps Choupette was thoroughly put off from public life after recently being cradled in an awkward football hold by Naomi Campbell in Vogue with the looming threat of being whipped at an assistant at any second; because Choupette’s Instagram account just posted that she’ll be sitting out the Met tonight.
For those of us with pets, going to the vet can be a traumatic event for everyone involved. For the pet, they don’t know why they’ve been transported to the cold, sterile medical office at the strip mall. For the human, putting a cat in a cat carrier is close to a Sisyphean task. But sometimes, it can be funny. Veterinarian Dr. Zonram Liao shared a video of his remedy for a cat who had just eaten a lily. The cat was…perplexed.
If you’ve recently caught whiffs of singed weave and burnt silicone and heard a thunderous, demonic voice groaning in anguish, it’s because Kris Jenner–whose kash kows probably weren’t included on the Met Gala guest list this year–just learned that the late Karl Lagerfeld’s beloved cat, Choupette Lagerfeld, did score an invite! The 12-year-old blue-cream tortie Birman breed cat is living her best life in the spotlight lately because the Met’s theme this year is “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line Of Beauty.” The pricey pussy was also photographed with Naomi Cambell for a Kunty Karl tribute section in Vogue!
