Grazia for more:
1.She sits with the pilots in the cockpit!
'When Karl is traveling (which is a lot), I generally go too, I stay with the pilot in the cockpit. He travels by private plane so we are not hassled by those awful security lines. I would not tolerate a search: the security screening gives my fur terrible static! I look like a pom pom by the time they are through with me!'
2.Girl's got a big crush on Joshua Jackson — who doesn't?
'I much prefer it if someone blonde pops by. That Laeticia Casta or Diane Kruger are rather wonderful and I purr extra loudly for Joshua Jackson if he comes with her.'
3.She has more-than-regular check-ups at the vet.
'Karl schedules visits to the vet for me every 10 days, just to make sure I am in tip top condition. I have a full regime of vitamins and supplements to keep my coat glossy. You may think I am high maintenance, but I assure you, the attention is worth it. Even my fur balls are glossy.'
4.She also likes to do chores.
'Because they are such dears, I do try to take time out of my busy schedule to help Françoise and Marie with some housework. I like dusting. I love sweeping. But I won’t get my paws wet. I have been known to get busy with the dustbin on collection day. The less said about that the better, probably.'
5.And likes to play hide-and seek?
'Many felines have a difficult time training their humans to understand their particular needs. I have found the opposite, I would recommend to any pet who would like to be pampered to find a home with a fashion icon.
6.But hates Brad Kroenig's son Hudson.
'Karl makes time for all his friends. Karl’s godson might pop by. How I HATE that boy! I call him 'la Terreur' but he is very cute and nearly as beautiful as I am. Then I have to exercise every fibre of my feline restraint because children have absolutely NO RESPECT for elegance. He treats me like a toy, which tests my patience to the limit.'
7.She doesn't walk, she saunters.
'I am often called upon to give Karl advice about what to wear. I saunter through the dressing room and give my considered opinion.'
