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."

***NOT NICE***



Kim could have picked up the cat another way.



Why DID she pick up the cat that way?



It's normal for a dog or cat mom to pick up TINY kittens and puppies that way. That is not a 'tiny' kitten or puppy.



She should be ashamed and issue an apology and give PETA a huge cash donation or even better, do a "no fur" ad for them - for free.

PETA relax, this is how you are supposed to hold a cat. I am not too sure why she is holding the cat in the first place, but really. OK so let's start from the beginning. Momma cats carry their young from the back. Cats have extra fat/skin so there is no harm. Cats are also equipped with five weapons. So if she was hurting the cat, it would be able to defend itself. The Kardashins love animals. They even have a boxer. That shows they have patience and love. I own a boxer and two cats. Believe me you need a lot of love and patience to deal with a boxer. It is ok. I am sure the cat lives a lot better than you and I.

They might as well said... Humans shouldn't interact with animals... it could lead to others to mistreat them.

Can we grab her by the scruff that is her horse-hair extensions? Only if for a few seconds? It won't hurt. She is a vapid individual, as is her entire family.

She needs to entertain herself some other way. Get a life. I don't care if the mother cat holds her babies like that, we have 2 long arms to cuddle and carry animals with, SO USE THEM LADY!

The cat's small and light. It's natural for mother cats to carry their kittens around in exactly that manner, and when the cat's still small, being carried like that by a human cannot hurt her. The animal rights activisits need to focus on something productive, like saving animals IN REAL TROUBLE.

It's sad the only way she can get a photo shoot is if her boobs are hanging out.

F'ing assclowns with their endless attitudes of entitlement. Someone needs to sterilize the whole bunch of the Kardashians before they procreate and make a bunch more assclowns who feel they can do whatever they want whenever they want just because they're soooo terribly special.



Stupid b*tch.
