Time flies when you're having, er, kittens. Believe it or not, Karl Lagerfeld's cute kitten, Choupette, is celebrating her first birthday today! Check out her birthday meal, below—five cooked shrimp, bless.

In her first year on earth, Choupette's fast become one of the most famous cats ever—she's even featured in the September issue of Harper's Bazaar—with a full page dedicated interview and this amazing accompanying portrait:

Here are some our favorite revelations from the Bazaar interview with the KL: 

Choupette's favorite toys are shopping bags, but not Chanel's: "Her favorite one is a huge Colette shopping bag that's under the kitchen table. She spends hours in there and brings all her toys in there. And when I'm in bed, sometimes she comes and brings all her toys in my bed."

Choupette's finicky eating habits: "She goes into 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 pate. You have to serve everything, and she makes a choice."

On Choupette's diva attitude: "She has an attitude like a princess... everything is done with the eyes. She knows exactly what she wants."

On being a dog person with a cat: "I love dogs, but dogs, you have to be in the country with dogs. I cannot walk a dog on the street. Cats take better care of themselves; they like to be alone. Cas are better in the house."
