It has its fur combed twice a day, plays with shopping bags and has 40,000 followers on Twitter, and now Karl Lagerfeld's famous pet cat Choupette is to release it's very own lifestyle book.

From eating dinner on silver platters to travelling by private jet, the book will chart Choupette's lifestyle with themed chapters on diet, beauty, healthcare, fashion tips, secret loves and pet hates.

The written advice and practical tips will come from Choupette’s vet, Madame Horn, and housekeeper and maid, Madame Françoise, who keep a daily diary for the cat, logging everything from her beauty routine to what she plays with.

Dinner is served on the table in dishes by designer retailer Goyard

Karl Lagerfeld has said his feline companion has "an attitude like a princess".

"She goes in the kitchen and sits in front of the food. She doesn't like to eat on the floor, so I have to put the food on the table. Her dishes are by Goyard. She has one for water, one for her little croquette, and one for her pâté. You have to serve everything, and she makes a choice," said the fashion designer in a Harper's Bazaar interview about Choupette.

Alongside the book launch, the white haired and blue-eyes feline is to release its own make-up line with Shu Uemura, according to her Twitter profile description.

"I never thought that I would fall in love like this with a cat," said Karl Lagerfeld.

We've selected a few images from the book plus Choupette's best tweets and Instagram pics below:
