Since she made her debut in January, Choupette Lagerfeld has quickly amassed a rabid following, outshining even her owner in terms of celebrity.

But with Kim Kardashian's decision to add a Choupette look-alike, a teacup Persian named Mercy, to her family over the weekend, it looks like Hollywood has a catfight on its hands.

But which of these two pampered pets is the fairest feline in town? Let's break it down:


While both cats are small in size and white in color, Choupette's "stunning beauty" landed her a spread in Harper's Bazaar. "Her eyes are blue, blue, blue, blue, blue. And also her movement is so beautiful," Lagerfeld said. Meanwhile, Mercy's first photo shoot came via Kardashian's Twitter account, where the star has been posting photos since her debut.
Winner: Choupette


Lagerfeld makes no attempt to hide Choupette's spoiled existence, having admitted she has two maids in her employ and shared a photo of her shrimp birthday "cake". Kardashian, on the other hand, has not yet shared any of Mercy's special accommodations, though there's little doubt she's living the high life.
Winner: Choupette

Famous Friends

Though it was the editor-in-chief of V Magazine, Stephen Gan, who snapped the world's first photo of Choupette, Mercy already has a slew of celebrity pals, with Kardashian's sister Khloé and nephew Mason (through dad Scott Disick) expressing their love for the furball on Twitter. Not to mention, the star's beau Kanye West must surely be a fan – Mercy is named for a track off of his album Cruel Summer.
Winner: Mercy

Too early to call? Never! In a best-of-three, the newest Kardashian came up strong in the final round, but with the fashion world at her beck-and-call, Choupette remains the cat to beat.
