"She has her own fortune," he added, thought to be around three million euros ($3.4 million) which she earned with him doing adverts for a German car firm and a Japanese cosmetics brand.

"If anything happens the person who looks after her will not go without," said Lagerfeld, who designed for Chanel, Fendi and his own brand right up to his death aged 85.

Choupette – who the designer they called the Kaiser compared to the enigmatic star Greta Garbo – is something of a cult figure in the fashion world, with more than 170,000 followers on social media.

She is also the hero of a book, Choupette: The Private Life of a High-Flying Fashion Cat, where she was photographed in arms of supermodel Linda Evangalista and snuggling with model turned actor Laetitia Casta.

Unlike them, the spoiled puss never has has to watch what she eats.

The book includes recipes for her favourite meals prepared by some of the best restaurants in Paris. One typically lavish repast is a mix of king crab, smoked salmon and caviar. And unlike ordinary cats, Choupette eats at a table.

"She is like a human being, only with an extra quality – silence," Lagerfeld quipped.

Leaving 200 Million to a car and none of the financial justice warrior's on here will bat an eye.

But let a farmer leave his family farm to his kids and they would take half.

Hell, they will probably get PETA involved and claim it is animal abuse if they take any taxes from it.

Amazing isn't it? Cats posses more than 90 percent of the world's wealth and these filthy libs are going after farmers.

Thank you Bonuts, for pointing out the truth.

What is the total sum of the estate? How many tens of millions are family farms worth that are impacted? I get the impression that it's designed for the mega-rich rather than family farmers.

Republicans pretend to represent the small farmer all the time. But nothing is ever actually done for them. It's always the giant factory farms reaping benefits from right wing handouts while they crush those small farms
