Despite how you feel about Kim Kardashian, this is a really sad story. Her 4-month-old Persian tea-cup kitten Mercy (that she named after a Kanye West song!) has just died!
You guys! That was the cutest cat I had ever seen! Mercy was the background on my computer desktop and I don’t really care about Kim K that much!
Poor little Mercy was apparently diagnosed with a fatal, cancer-like virus and died soon after.
Also, did you know that Kim didn’t even own Mercy when she passed away? Apparently Kim developed allergies to the cat and gave her to her friend Sydney, Khloe’s assistant, to take care off.
“I had fallen SO in love with Mercy that I wanted to try everything I could to keep her,” Kim wrote on her blog, “[but] it wasn’t fair on Mercy, because I couldn’t play with her or give her as much attention as I wanted to. Mercy deserved a mom who could really give her the time and affection she deserved.”
Mercy apparently got sick randomly even after several trips to the vet proved she was in great health.
“They discovered she had a stomach problem that we weren’t aware of,” Kim wrote on her blog, “Poor little Mercy died the very next day.”
“Mercy was a gentle and loving kitten and we are all going to miss her so much. Thanks to Sydney for making Mercy’s short life one filled with love. RIP Mercy Xo.”
