It’s going to be a sad day at the Kardashian household. Kim Kardashian’s teacup Persian kitten, Mercy, passed away last night.
According to E! News, Mercy died due to a “cancer-like” virus.
The Huffington Post reports that Mercy was a gift from Kanye West. Kim soon found out that she was allergic to kittens and gave the cat away to her sister Khloe’s assistant, Sydney Hitchcock, who had recently lost her 12-year-old cat.
Kim wrote on her blog: “It is with deep sadness that I have to tell you all that my kitten, Mercy, has passed away. My heart is completely broken.”
Kim writes that Sydney gave Mercy a great home and that they were both devastated that the kitten passed away at only four months old.
“Sydney gave Mercy a loving home, but after a couple of weeks Mercy got really sick and Sydney had to rush her to the vet. They discovered she had a stomach problem that we weren’t aware of. Her stomach had filled with fluid and the doctor said she had a rare stomach cancer and that there was nothing we could do for her. Poor little Mercy died the very next day. It broke not only my heart that little Mercy died at only four months old, but Sydney’s too.”
Kim posted the small obit on her blog as well as several pictures of the little kitten.
Kim writes: “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”
