If you thought you loved your pet more than anyone else in the world, think again. 

Fashion design legend Karl Lagerfeld has proven the ultimate devotion to his pet cat by immortalizing her in the form of an expensive plush toy.

Choupette, 83-year-old Lagerfeld's Birman cat, has been transformed into a luxurious, limited-edition stuffed animal by German toy makers Steiff - complete with a hefty price tag of 5.

An uncanny likeness: The toy makers at Steiff truly captured Choupette's sweet expression and majestic aura

The stuffed Choupette comes with a magnetic mouse, a 'chic' carry case, and a certificate of authenticity. Alas, she does not come with the two personal maids that the real Choupette is reported to have tending to her every whim.  

Shockingly, the new Choupette toy is but the latest in a long series of pricey merchandise based on the Chanel designer's famous cat.

Karl Lagerfeld's online store boasts 42 different items inspired by Choupette, many of them featuring her blue-eyed likeness.

For 5, you can fill your home with the fragrance of a Choupette-themed candle. For 6, Choupette will carry your work lunch in a colorful tote bag. For 5, a Choupette sweater will keep you warm as though the fluffy cat were sitting in your lap.

Of course, cat-lovers on a budget can indulge in Choupette's book. For, you can read up on the 'Private Life of a High-Flying Fashion Cat' and learn what it takes to become just as fabulous as Choupette herself.

Though she has quite the famous father, the fashionable feline is a social media celebrity in her own right. On Instagram, more than 98,000 fans follow her every move. On Twitter, 51,000 tune in to hear her every thought.

Choupette is even on par with models like Kendall Jenner, as she has graced some of the most prestigious magazine covers in the world, including Lucky, Grazia, and both German and Brazilian Vogue.

Between candle sales and modeling gigs, Choupette is certainly earning her keep. A 2015 report from the New York Daily News claimed the feline raked in more than million - that's more than Cara Delevigne earned in the same year.

The Steiff Choupette plush toy is now available for pre-order, and is expected to ship out in early June. It could be the perfect gift for anyone in your life who has an 'attitude like a princess.'
