Kitty Kardashian

The Kardashian family has been known to make headlines; this year alone, mom Kris and sister Khloe have filed for divorce from their husbands, Kim got engaged to controversial Kanye West, and poor Kourtney has been making headlines thanks to her boyfriend and father to her children, Scott Disick. Thankfully, Kourtney has some happy news to report: the family got a kitten for Christmas.

Kourtney, who has two children with Disick—Mason and Penelope—announced via Instagram and Twitter that the family has added a Bengal kitty to their clan. So far, Kourtney has only referred to the cat as Kitty, a la Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, who simply named her cat Cat. Perhaps she’s planning on keeping it simple, or maybe she’s just waiting for the kids to get a feel for their new feline pet so that they can name her themselves.

Pets as gifts has been a hotly debated topic this holiday season, but Kourtney did not reveal in her tweets if the family received this little bundle of fur as a surprise. Perhaps she thought giving the cat to her kids might be a welcome surprise, with all of the negativity surrounding their father in the media. Either way, it looks like Kitty Kardashian should be the least controversial member of the family for awhile.
