Imagine a world in which you did not have to work a standard 9-5 office job all because your pet was the big money-earner of your home. You would not, of course, be able to merely sit back and collect on your pet's earnings. There would probably be some travel involved. You would be tasked with keeping that pet healthy and looking its best. You would, after all, want to get the best for and from your pet during the time that it is making money. There will sadly come a day when all you will have from that pet will be past earnings and also the memories that you and your pet created over the years.
Not all of the animals that are mentioned in this piece became rich because they were celebrities featured in television shows and movies. Some were merely lucky enough to “inherit” great wealth from owners who wanted to make sure that their pets were able to lead luxurious existences. Others, however, had to earn money by working different gigs. Time released its list of the richest pets of all time in October of 2015. You may be surprised to learn that the list includes more than just dogs and cats. It is a cat, however, that tops out the list; assuming that Time was correct in its findings, of course.

Fashion designer and industry icon Karl Lagerfeld loves his cat. He really, really loves his cat. While speaking with NY Mag for a story that was published in March of 2015, Lagerfeld claimed that his beloved Choupette made 3 million euros last year off of a pair of jobs. That is not all that Lagerfeld had to say about Choupette:
She is like a human being, but the good thing is that she’s silent. You don’t have to discuss it. She hates other animals and she hates children. She stays always with me and she has two personal maids. They play with her, they have to take care of her beautiful white hair, the beauty treatments for her eyes, and they entertain her. She is the center of the world. If you saw her, you would understand. She is kind of Greta Garbo.
