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."

Kim Kardashian holds up a kitty by the scruff of the neck and PETA's all up in arms like it's the end of the world. Never mind that a volcano in Iceland has caused flights all over the world to be cancelled and thousands of travellers are stranded.

Well, to all the members of PETA I just wanna say: Meat is delicious and freshly killed game like Bison, Elk, Caribou and Elk is the BEST!! Now go out and have a Big Mac!

So Kim Kardashian picks up a little kitty and PETA gets all upset. wow. And to think we were concerned about my cousins trying to get back to the States from Switzerland because flights from all over Europe were delayed and canceled, and thousands of travelers all over the world are stranded.
Well, to all the PETA people, I just want to say: Meat is delicious, and fresh game like bison, elk, moose, and caribou is the BEST! Now, go have a Big Mac.

Grandma Kardashian will do ANYTHING to attempt to help Kimmie get Reggie back. Even if Grandma has to use a tiny kitty to do it. ~ With all that cleavage showing, and she's probably only posing for a breath mint or maxi pads.

Poor Bruce.

I am a big fan of Kim and her family. I must say that I am very disappointed. The kitten is too big. She is not the kittens mother. This is not sexy....this promotes animal abuse. Kim needs to apologize for her ignorance and remove this picture.

Kim claims to not like animals over and over.......why does she have to involve the poor cat in her ugly pose. She has taken much better pictures than this one. Leave the poor kitty alone. As many bloggers before me have said, this cat is way to big to be carried by the scruff of the neck.

kim is sick    

to do that and think its cool is sick. i dont give a crap if its 'ok' or not cuz it aint cool, its pathetic and so is she. obviously any publicity is good publicity to a media whore but even this is something her tiny brain should have know is inappropriate. never have given her much thought before but now i can say she makes me sick.
doing this gives her 'followers' permission to do it s well and how do we know the they are going to 'do it right". give me a break her ignorance will cause needless suffering to kitties cuz whos gonna watch to make sure that its just for a few seconds. so SPCLA is stupid for saying that it was ok
