Is Kim Kardashian becoming a cat lady?
She has been all about her little furball, a teacup Persian, on Twitter, posting photos and updates of kitten "Mercy" almost daily.
"I just hope I'm not turning into one of those cat ladies that's Tweeting too many pictures of her pet!" she told People.com.
Mercy's name came from one of her boyfriend Kanye West's songs. Seems fitting, since the cat was a gift from Kanye.
People.com compared the pampered feline to another famous kitty -- Chanel's creative director Karl Langerfeld's cat, Choupette. Check out the comparison here. And find out why Lagerfield's cat probably has a better life than most humans. Will Mercy follow in Choupette's footsteps?
