Well, this just put a damper on our Friday night. E! Online reports Kim Kardashian’s adorable cat, Mercy, died of a virus at the end of November. 

The teacup Persian was a present from Kim’s boyfriend, Kanye West. Mercy has not lived with Kim for some time due to the reality star’s allergies; Kim gave the cat to Khloe Kardashian’s assistant, Sydney.

According to E! Online, Mercy suffered from a cancer-like illness that is often seen in cats that come from breeders. "Kim is really upset," a source told E! Online. "She was upset about Mercy dying and upset that she was trying to do something nice for Sydney,” who had recently lost another cat. 

How incredibly sad for Kim, her family, and Mercy’s new owner.
