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."

Where was uber controlling mama manager when this was going down?? Not a smart career move. Not at all "sexy." With actions like this, it's no wonder why Reggie doesn't want to put a ring on it!

Aren't they carried around by mama cat like that? And even if they're not, who the f*ck cares. I know a guy in high school who used to live on a farm and send 'em up the silo blower into the silo. Always landed on their feet, too.

Mom cats do carry their KITTENS this way. But Ive yet to see a mom cat pick up an at least 6 month old cat (like this one). I dont 100% for sure know how tall this skank is, so lets assume that she is between 5'2" and 5'8". There is still NO mother cat on the planet who dangles their kitten in their mouth from that height. But its just skin and fat on the back of the cat's neck, right? Cool, so lets dangle Kim by either one of her fake ass boobs or the fat and skin of her inner thighs from a cherry picker set between 5'2" and 5'8" off the ground and she can tell us for sure whether or not it hurts.

That has to be the stupidest thing ever. Holding a cat that way doesn't harm the cat in any way. That's exactly how the mother cat holds her kittens in her mouth when carrying them around.

The vet always picks up our fully grown cats this way when they see her for their injection. Picking them up any other way would get them clawed. Both our cats go spaz when they see other humans. The back of the neck spot is not only normal to pick them up by, but also helps to hold if you need them to give them medicine.

The facts are...



1. This skank bag is not a mother cat.



2. This skank bag is not a Vet.



3. This skank bag is doing this for only one reason and that is to promote her fake, over inflated a**!

I do not think the kitten was hurt, however I think the poor kitten was just a prop. She always tries to be sexy and if this kitten scratched her she probably would drop it on purpose.
