Kim Kardashian Mourns Death of Cat Mercy

December 8, 2012

Kim Kardashian's Persian kitten, Mercy, has died, the reality star has confirmed.

The cause of her cat's death was a cancer-like virus associated with breeding.

"It is with deep sadness that I have to tell you all that my kitten, Mercy has passed away," Kim wrote on her blog Friday evening. "My heart is completely broken."

Kim Kardashian only got Mercy in September; at the time, she said she almost went with Pearl as a name before being inspired by the title of one of her man's songs.

Boyfriend Kanye West gave Kim the baby Persian kitty as a gift.

Kim quickly found out she was allergic to her new pet shortly after getting her from the breeder, however, and gave her to Khloe Kardashian's assistant, Sydney Hitchcock.

Sydney had recently lost her own cat after 12 years, making Mercy's arrival joyous - and her loss this week all the more heartbreaking for the pet's caretaker.

Our thoughts go out to all that loved the adorable white ball of fur.
