Kim Kardashian -- Hello Kitty Controversy

4/19/2010 5:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kim Kardashian is being ripped apart by her Twitter fans and PETA for the way she held a kitten in a photo she posted on her page -- but according to another animal rights group, it's not as bad as it seems.

Kim Karsdashian
We spoke to the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals L.A., who told us "It is permissible to hold a kitten by his or her scruff for a brief amount of time" ... but warns, "the manner in which Ms. Kardashian is holding the kitten could lead others to mishandle animals."

According to sources on the set of the photo shoot where the pic was taken, Kim only held the cat by the scruff for a few seconds -- and did it with the owner and a vet's consent.

We're told the cat is "doing fine."

NO Kim does not look like a cat, but putting out false information that it is hurting the cat is harmful as well

Glad the cat is fine and she had consent but I still don't like it. I agree - don't want this to give others the wrong idea. And why do it anyway? It's not an attractive picture/pose in the least. Now I'm getting angry....

That is the correct to hold a kitten or cat. Just had to do that to my 15lb cat. Just do not hold them in the air. I held on to mine for a few minutes while he waited for his Frontline. Kittie is 15 pounds and you do what you have to do to make them do what needs to be done.

what the hell is the wrong with her? is it not enough that this cat has probably gotten crabs by just being touched by this no talent girl who is only famous for being loose in more ways than one, having a big ass, and a sex tape. npw the cat has to be abused by this no talent diseased skank.

I'd like to grab her by the back of her neck and see how she likes it!! I see no reason why the cat was used in that way. It's not art, it doesn't add anything to the picture. She needs to just stick to worrying about how her ass looks!

PETA people are crazy. And yes. It is acceptable to hold kittens and puppies that way for short periods of time. Their own mothers do it. Duh.
