Is this this Ripley’s Believe or not show? Are we facing a bizarre joke of some type of human craziness? Nope, it’s for real. Chanel’s creative director famous designer Karl Lagerfield actually photographed his cat for the new Opel Corsa Photo Calendar, to hit the market in February 2015. And the red point Birman cat named Choupette is not just a pet, it could easily make for one of the most spoiled animals on the planet.

Modeling for the German automaker the white cat is now standing next to her model human fellows, who have posed for the previous calendar issues, models such as Linda Evanghelista, Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell. However, Choupette was already famous, considering it has 42,000 fans on Twitter and even has its own Wikipedia page.
Lagerfel himself photographed his pet, as the cat was exploring the new Corsa’s exterior and interior. After all, humans are not really able to pose like that on the steering wheel, nor can they make that face in the mirror. It was quite a stressful day as well, for what is probably the world’s happiest cat, considering Choupette needed to take a long nap after the shooting, Bild reports.

And just when you think Lagerfeld takes things to far with his cat, we’re here to shock you. Not only does he spoils the cat, but he even announced that he wished to marry Choupette, a year ago. The fashion legend said in an interview with CNN: “There is no marriage, yet, for human beings and animals... I never though that I would fall in love like this with a cat.

How about that for advertising a car, right?
