Surpassing the paychecks of some of the world’s top models, including Cara Delevingne, one cat is believed to be the richest in the world. Last year, she earned more than $3 million! And would you believe she has over 100,000 followers on Twitter?
So, who’s this lucky feline and why is she earning such a huge amount of money?
Well, Choupette is no ordinary cat because she’s the “baby” of designer Karl Lagerfeld. A Birman cat, Choupette has a first-class pedigree which dictated her paycheck. Despite posing for Lagerfeld’s brands, she’s really not paid for those as they were her “own”, anyway.

Spot the brands…
Her jobs actually entail modeling for two high-end brands: German car brand Opel and Japanese cosmetics company Shu Uemura. According to Lagerfeld, Choupette would never pose for cheap brands. And judging from her $3-M paycheck in 2014, she wouldn’t need to!
