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."

I HAVE HAD CATS ALL MY LIFE AND I CAN TELL YOU YOU DO NOT DO THAT NO MATTER WHAT ANY DUMB VET SAYS----
A MOTHER CAT CAN DO THAT WITH THE KITTENS WHEN THEY ARE VERY TINY
--BUT THE MOTHER DOES NOT DO IT VERY LONG AT ALL, ONLY WHEN THEY ARE TINY AND ONLY WHEN SHE HAS TO



CATS ARE HIGHLY INTELLIGENT AND VERY,VERY SENSITIVE. THEY UNDERSTAND DISRESPECT. AND THEY DON'T DESERVE IT. ESPECIALLY NOT FROM SOME IGNORANT BITCH WHO JUST WANTS ANOTHER PHOTO OF HER OVERLY MADE UP, F*CKING UGLY FACE.

And you just know this nutbag is driving around right now telling herself the whole world is just jealous of how terribly special she is. It isn't that people *really* believe the whole bunch of them are pathological attention seekers who would disappear back into the mist if they weren't always coming up with new reasons to make people watch them. It's that all the rest of us are inferior to them in some way are are just bitter and jealous.
Over-entitled skags with too much money and not enough IQ to do anything more important with it than get a new tit if there isn't a write-off involved.

People IT'S A FREAKING CAT get over it!
Sheesh I wish that this much fuss was raised when someone brags about their abortions!!



I mean really PETA is a bunch of SAAAAAAAAAAAAD people what do they have nothing better to do with their time then to have someone watching EVERY PIECE of news (or lack there of in this case) that surfaces where an animal is involved! PFFT!!!! PLEASE!!!



With all the serious things going on in this world, I wish people would put this "animal passion" to work in areas where we actually need it! ie ... homeless, child abuse, autism, jobs, abortions (where DEFENSELESS HUMAN BABIES are torn apart!!)....



Values are so twisted when animals get more rights and attention then human beings for all the causes above!!!!!!!!!!



PS ... and NO I don't think animals should be mistreated but COME ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is exactly why I hate PETA! Cats are held by their scruff by their mother's when they are kittens. It's totally natural and even comforting for cats and small dogs to be held that way. For an organizations that claims to love animals so much, they sure do act like they don't know much about them.

Apparently, acceptable by some people or not – Kim will do anything for money.



Kim had to know that people would complain the mother of the cat is not holding the kitten only a few inches - that Kim is holding the cat up in the air like this ( almost above her own head height) and will wonder how many takes of the cat struggling trying to claw her before getting this photo.




What can Kim apologize for –taking money for any payable opportunity or the negative public reaction and claim the cat suffered no harmed it was just a poor choice.

PETA and its psychos need to get lives.



Clearly, if the kitten was in pain it would be trying to get the f*** down. The kitten looks calm and painfree, and yes, you are supposed to carry a kitten like that. Plus, there was a vet there who told her to carry it like that.



There's plenty of animal abuse in the world to worry about. Let's not get our panties in a bunch over someone picking up a cat.



PS: You may hate Kim's personality, but her body is banging. However, the kitten steals the show here. Adorable.
