Kim Kardashian is showing her fans a little mercy – literally.

Arriving at the sister-operated Dash boutique in Miami on Sunday, the reality star stepped out with a little white kitten named Mercy. And boyfriend Kanye West might soon find himself a little jealous – this ball of fluff is purr-fectly adorable.

"My new baby Mercy!" Kardashian, 31, Tweeted Sunday alongside a series of snapshots of her new addition (who may make the perfect playmate for sister Kourtney's 2-month-old Penelope).

So what's in a name?

Good news for the rapper's ego: The kitty's moniker seems to be a nod to his song "Mercy," the lead single off of his recently released album, Cruel Summer.
