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."

Coming out of a club they look like any other clubber thats not good enuff for them they have to be the center of the media photo ops especially Kim.

The point is she's neither a vet nor a cat's mother. Simply a *****.

FYI
Immediately after the photo shoot, the cat was subjected to a lengthy, Silkwood-style decontamination shower in an attempt to cleanse it of Kim's countless STDs.



And now you know...the rest...of the story.
Good day!

You morons, there's a BIG difference having the mother cat carry her young and some twit like this fat ass hold a kitten like this. Whoever the owner and VET are they should be held by their balls like this for about 10 minutes and Kim by her implanted ASS.

I actually liked Kim before this picture. Now, it seems she is desperate for attention. Kim, get a life.

Whether it is ok to pick the cat up like that or not...why would she? Does she not like cats? If not, then she shouldn't have her picture taken with one! She appears heartless and cruel in this picture.

I actually took my dog to the vet today for a heartworm test.
Without mentioning this situation in particular, I asked if it were ok to pick up a cat by the scruff of the neck.
The vet said it is fine when they are VERY young kittens(under 2lbs or so), but after that it is NOT ok as their nerves under their skin are more developed and it could hurt them. Not to mention that it scares the cat.
Kim is a bitch.
