Sure, a sentimental card or a fancy piece of bling would have been nice, but Kanye West had an even better special gift in mind for girlfriend Kim Kardashian to mark her Miami filming schedule.

Kardashian’s new kitten, Mercy, is actually a present from West, she writes on her blog.

“With me being in Miami, Kanye knew I would need some company when he wasn’t around,” she says, “so he surprised me with her.”

And it seems like Mercy is good company, indeed. “She’s so sweet and the cutest thing ever!” Kim continues. Even sister Khloé gushes on her blog: “We are all madly in love! How cute is she?! I might have to sneak her in my suitcase when I head back to L.A.”

Since debuting the Persian kitten on Sunday in Miami, where Kardashian is due to film Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, the reality star has showed off her new ball of fluff on Twitter.

“Sleeping Beauty,” she wrote, alongside a sweet snapshot of her snoozing cat.

But if that weren’t enough affirmation that she likes her present, there’s another sure-fire way West can tell: the Choupette look-alike is named after the lead single off of his recently released album, Cruel Summer.
