Have you ever had the niggling suspicion that your cat might just be royalty in its previous life? I received a note from my cat stating how disappointed she was about me failing to get what she really wanted for Christmas — an Italian leather couch. To be used as a scratching post. Oh, and a pocketed coil spring mattress complete with a 1200-thread-count Egyptian cotton sheets. For when she needs to catch some rays. What kind of cat would do this? The answer: the very type that forms the target market of Chimère, a company that offers luxurious pet furniture.
