ALTSomething tells us Kim Kardashian is listening to Kanye West's "Stronger" on repeat right now.

On Friday, the reality TV star posted an entry on her blog with the title, "Rest in Peace, Little Mercy" — revealing that her four-month-old Persian kitten was put down after being diagnosed with a life-threatening virus. "My heart is completely broken," she reveals.

The pet was a gift from boyfriend West, but after Kardashian discovered she was allergic to cats, she decided to gift Mercy to Khloe's assistant, Sydney, whose own cat had recently passed away.

The adorable white cat had quickly become a family favorite, popping up on Kardashian's Twitter and Instagram accounts — and posing with everyone from Mason to Kendall Jenner. "Mercy was a gently and loving kitten and we are all going to miss her so much."

In the hopes of cheering up the heartbroken star, we compiled a couple of adorable cat videos guaranteed to make anyone smile. RIP, Mercy.
