There's a new member of the Kardashian Klan!

On September 16, E! reality star Kim Kardashian, 31, introduced the world to her new kitten, a Teacup Persian. The omnipresent star named her feline friend Mercy, which just so happens to be the title of Kanye West's first single from his new album, Cruel Summer.

Kardashian and her new pet arrived at her family-owned Dash boutique in Miami Sunday. She later shared several pictures of Mercy via Instagram. "Dash Miami today was crazy! Such cute stuff!" Kardashian tweeted. "Did a little shopping and re-merchandised the store!"

Earlier this month, Kardashian appeared on The View and opened up about her relationship with West, 35. "Technically I'm still married," she said of her prolonged divorce from NBA player Kris Humphries, 27. "Anything I'd be in now would be a permanent relationship."

When host Barbara Walters asked if her relationship with the hip-hop heavyweight is permanent, Kardashian replied, "I hope so. I believe so."

The twice-married star also hopes to have kids in the near future. "At the space that I am in life now, kids are definitely something I want," Kardashian admitted. "I think I fell in love so quickly and wanted that to be my life so badly, but I just didn't take the time to find someone."

The seventh season finale of Keeping Up With the Kardashians airs September 16 at 9 p.m. EST on the E! Network. "You can't miss it!" Kardashian wrote on her official blog. "I decide to get my eggs frozen so that when the time is right I am prepared in case something happens."
