Another Kardashian baby? Well, sorta.

It looks like Kourtney Kardashian and her brood welcomed a new kitten to the fold over the holidays. Sharing a pic of her adorable little handful of fur on Instagram, Kourt announced “the newest member of the family” to her instagram followers on Christmas day.

As the resident earth mother of her klan, we certainly wouldn’t be surprised if Kourtney Kardashian had a third baby on the way (there have certainly been rumors at least once a month this year, but no bump in sight as of yet). However, this latest little one has four legs, tabby print and an adorably inquisitive face. We’re guessing little Mason and Penelope are thrilled to have a new playmate!

Here’s hoping this new baby fares better than the last kitten to join the Kardashian family. Last year, sister Kim received a white teacup Persian kitten named Mercy from now-fiancé Kanye West. (Kim  later gave primary custody to a friend after discovering she had a severe allergy)  However, after four months, the poor little fluffball tragically died of a cancer-like stomach virus.

On that total Debbie Downer note, uh... welcome to the family, baby kitty!
