Kim Kardashian Pet Scandal: Names North West's Puppy After Her Old Cat Mercy

Kim Kardashian isn’t good at keeping pets. But, she decided to get a puppy for her daughter North West. She had to get it on the day that Beyoncé gave birth. Kim Kardashian decided to get her daughter an adorable Pomeranian. You won’t believe what she named the pup.

Kim Kardashian shared an adorable picture of the white fluffy Pomeranians on her Twitter account. She said that one of the puppies was for North, and the other was for Kourtney Kardashian’s kid, Penelope. She then asked her fans suggestions for names. Kim Kardashian claimed that North West wanted to call one of the puppies Mercy, after her old kitten. While these puppies are absurdly cute, it’s odd that she would do this on the weekend that Queen Bey gives birth.

It’s not the way that Kim Kardashian handled this news that has people in an uproar. It’s what she’s considering call North’s new pet that has people shaking their heads. She claims her daughter wants to name her after her old white kitten, Mercy. The beautiful kitten passed away because Kim Kardashian wasn’t able to take care of it. Hopefully, she can take care of this new dog.

Back in 2012, Kim Kardashian’s cat, Mercy, died from a cancer-like virus associated with breeding. The reality star was slammed for purchasing a cat instead of adopting one. Kim Kardashian’s white teacup Persian kitten was a gift from Kanye West. But, then she realized that she was allergic to cats. Kim Kardashian decided to give Mercy to Khloe Kardashian’s assistant, Sydney Hitchcock, since she lost her cat of 12 years.

Mercy didn’t appear sick at the time. But, Kim Kardashian did take her everywhere she went. She kind of treated the cat like an accessory. She thought of herself as the Armenian version of Paris Hilton. On Nov. 26, Hitchcock discovered Mercy’s body was limp and not moving, according to E!  News. They rushed the kitten to an animal hospital where veterinarians found a fatal virus inside Mercy’s stomach. The cancer-like virus was untreatable, so Hitchcock got the kitten euthanized.

So, while Kim Kardashian is asking fans for help with naming her new pet, Kourtney Kardashian decided to name hers “Honey.” Kim Kardashian has since changed her mind on naming the puppy Mercy. She doesn’t think it’s a good idea to name it after her late pet. It would be best to go with another name. What are your thoughts, CDL readers? Sound off below in the comments section.
