According to ABC News, Kim wrote on her blog Friday, “It is with deep sadness that I have to tell you all that my kitten, Mercy, has passed away. My heart is completely broken,” she added.
Mercy was a gift from boyfriend, Kanye West. Kim took to the little fur ball immediately, but shortly after receiving Mercy, Kim realized she was allergic to cats. “I had fallen SO in love with Mercy,” she said, “that I wanted to try everything I could to keep her, but I didn’t think it was safe to resort to injections, and it wasn’t fair on Mercy, because I couldn’t play with her or give her as much attention as I wanted to,” Kim explained. “Mercy deserved a mom who could really give her the time and affection she deserved.”
Kim knew she had to find Mercy a new home and wanted to make sure she would be taken care of so she gave the cat to Sydney, her sister Khloe’s assistant. Sydney had recently lost a cat after 12 years and Kim thought this would be the most sensible way “to make the best of a difficult situation.”
Sydney took Mercy on October 16 and seemed to be doing fine. She even got good reports from the vet in October and early November at regular checkups. However, according to E! News, by November 26, the cat had become “limp” and wasn’t moving. Mercy was rushed to the vet’s office where they diagnosed a fatal virus that had attacked her stomach. This type of virus acts like a cancer. Sydney was told even an aggressive treatment would not save the kitten and since they did not want her to suffer they had her euthanized.
It broke not only my heart that little Mercy died at only four months old, but Sydney’s too,” Kim said. “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.”
We know it’s hard losing a beloved pet. Our hearts go out to Kim and Sydney.
