Kim Kardashian’s cat Mercy died weeks after she gave her away to Khloe’s assistant

Kim Kardashian's kitty died

Sad news!

Kim Kardashian’s cat Mercy has died. Earlier this year Kim’s boyfriend Kanye West bought her a tiny white teacup Persion, which she named after one of his songs. Kim has quite a few photo opps with Mercy before she decided to give her kitten to Khloe’s assistant Syndey because she was allergic to cats.

In the message from Kim below she says she found out she’d have to get shots, so she decided to give Mercy to a good home. After a few weeks, Mercy got very ill and eventually died because of a stomach problem they didn’t realize she had. Poor Mercy! We knew she seemed to look uncomfortable in a lot of her photos, and it was probably because she didn’t physically feel very well.

It is with deep sadness that I have to tell you all that my kitten, Mercy, has passed away. My heart is completely broken.

When I first got Mercy, I had never lived with a cat before and so I had no idea that I was allergic. I thought that it might pass, but after a few weeks I decided to go visit two separate allergists, one of whom said my allergies wouldn’t get any better unless I started taking injections. I had fallen SO in love with Mercy 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. Mercy deserved a mom who could really give her the time and affection she deserved. I knew that Sydney, Khloe’s assistant, who had recently lost a cat she had loved and cared for for 17 years, would be the perfect mom for Mercy and Sydney was so excited to have Mercy as her own!

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. 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.

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

  • Not for nothing, but when you get a pet, does taking it to the vet and getting it checked mean anything to anybody?? Just saying

  • Jenn

    Does anyone else just think she didn’t want the cat? I get that feeling. Poor kitty.

  • tab

    who freaking cares?

    • rachel

      I care about that poor animal. A lot. What I don’t care for is cold hearted people who think an animal is a toy or accessory. They need care and this animal probably couldve been saved if she hadn’t been placed in the hands of a bunch of damn idiots!!!!!!!!

      • greentara43

        I second this. That kitten was a photo op for that useless POS, nothing more. Now that it is dead because no one had the brains to realize soon enough that it was sick, she’s using THAT for more attention. GODS, I hate this woman and her family.

      • tab

        i, too, am sad for the kitty. i’m sure she could have been saved.

        my comment was about the article and kim kardashian in general.

          This was probably FIP, and sadly, there is no cure for FIP… regardless of how diligent an owner happens to be. It is a terrible disease.

  • Annie

    She didn’t want to resort to injections, yet she gets Botox?

      SHE’S A LIAR. An alternative to allergy shots has been widely available for the last 10 years. It’s called “SLIT” therapy and involves a sublingual drop (you just put a drop of specially formulated medication under your tongue where it’s absorbed into the bloodstream. No shots. She’s so useless. She could at least make up lies that make sense.

        lmao it’s clear she just didn’t feel like taking care of the cat because she was too much effort, so she gave it away. She knew this would look bad though so she tried to lie. And I’m so sure this kitten had this horrible stomach disease and nobody noticed that till it got so bad the kitten literally died the next day. The cat was clearly neglected and that’s how she got her stomach illness.

  • I’m allergic to cats and I know this without having to live with them. She’s in her 30’s and didn’t realize she had an allergy? Weird.

    • greentara43

      It’s called stupid.

  • ashley

    I’m not positive, but I think teacup and miniature breeds are way more prone to get sick and have deformities more so than other “normal” size breeds. However, so many people, especially celebrities, want these tiny animals to use as an accessory. Poor mercy 🙁

  • Kj

    Aw I feel sorry for the lady who’s cat died after 17 years and then gets a sick kitten who dies right away. Poor lady. :/

  • Courtney

    I’m sorry but when you adopt an animal you don’t just go and give it away. That’s heartless. She just used that kitten for photo ops and didnt properly take care of the kitten otherwise they would have known a lot sooner that it had a stomach problem. I hope she never has a child because she would either pawn it off on someone else or it would die under her care! She ONLY cares about herself!

  • Do you notice that they keep saying “Stomach problem.” Rather vague isn’t it? What was the actual diagnosis from the Veterinarian? There wasn’t one. Kim probably had the kitten and let it starve to death or ran it over in one of her million dollar cars. Even if it was sick, why didn’t she spend some of her money to help it? As she is always bragging about how rich she is, she probably has enough money to replace every vital organ on that kitten. I think she either killed the kitten by neglect or had it euthanized to get back at her animal loving haters.

      Late to the party, I know (just randomly heard about this and pulled up an article wondering what had happened to the kitten)… but this sounds suspiciously like a virus called FIP. Any cat can be affected, but certain breeds (including Persians) are at greater risk. I’m no Kardashian fan, but I doubt Kim was at fault here.

  • If this is a model of how KK treats animals, then I pray to god she never has children to care for. Yikes.

  • Honeybear

    This is the second time she’s done this. The boxer she used to have mysteriously disappeared. Pretty sure she gave him away. Was that allergies also? She doesn’t deserve to have an animal.

  • Allergies, yeah right! I am allergic to cats and even OTC allergy medicines take care if that. She just did not wanna be bothered raising and taking care of something else besides herself. Please I wish she just did not take the public so stupid to not see through her lies. Poor kitty, having to put up with that. I also feel bad for the lady who got the kitten who died right after receiving the kitty.

    There is no such thing as a teacup Persian, breeders create these tiny animals (mostly by starvation) and then charge thousands of dollars for them. It is abuse. Kanye should be ashamed of himself for purchasing it. Unless it is a runt a kitten should not be so small at 4 months that it cannot have the necessary vaccines. Kim is an ignorant fool at best.

  • D

    This is an unfortunate event that resulted from negligent breeders and people like kim/kanye/other celebrities who keep buying these so-called teacup breeds which are nothing but unhealthy runts…poor Mercy

  • Whatever makes you sleep at night, Kim. You are the most self centered celebrity I have encountered. When you decide to take an animal as a pet you should really do your research. It speaks volumes of what you are about. You are a woman with a pretty face that adds nothing to this world. Good luck to you as you are going to create “bastard” children. Whatever happened to morals. Clearly you fell off the moral truck. Funny how you are rewarded for bad behavior because of a pretty face. You add nothing.

  • Jennifer Miller

    This bitch can get botox, and plastic surgeries, but can’t get allergy shots? She obviously just didn’t want the cat. I would respect her moreif she just came out and said “i’m not an animal person” or something of that nature. This excuse may be worse than her blaming a cold on her swollen lips and face lol

  • starcrow

    I don’t buy it. She makes me want to puke. There’s more to the story:(
