Kim Kardashian Wants to Name North’s Dog After a Dead Cat and We Feel Weird

If you know the Kardashians, you know they have a sordid past with pets, but Kim Kardashian just couldn’t resist gifting her little girl North West an adorable fluffy puppy for her fourth birthday!

In a series of snaps, the makeup-free mother-of-two debuted the little fluff ball to her followers.

“You guys, how cute is Northie’s little puppy?” she said in the video. “What should we name you?”

Kim did what she does best and took to Instagram for some inspiration for naming Nori’s puppy. “Sister puppies for North & P! Penelope named hers Honey. What should we name ours?” she captioned a snap of the two dogs.

And though people in the comments offered names like “Sugar” and “Ginger,” apparently North got the idea to name her new pup after her mom’s dead cat and pretty much the whole Internet feels weird about it.

“So North wants to name her puppy Mercy, thoughts? We need a good name!” Kim Tweeted to her fans.

If you, for some reason, don’t keep a running list of all the Kardashian pets, you might remember Mercy was the other little white fluff ball that Kim received as a gift from hubby Kanye back in 2012. The kitten sadly died the same year when she was just four months old.

Though Mercy’s been gone for longer than North’s been alive, the Twitterverse still remembers Kim’s late teacup Persian kitten and definitely expressed their confusion with the name choice.

While it’s unclear whether North has some weird connection with her mom’s dead cat and thought of the name by herself of if Kim just really wants another animal named Mercy, we’re just all a little confused by the whole thing.

RIP Mercy.
