Basketball Wife to New Parents:

Kill Your Cats

3/12/2014 9:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0313-tmzlive-launch-01

Jackie Christie from "Basketball Wives" says there's only one way to handle a jealous cat around your kids -- KILL THE CAT! Her point might be that kids are more important, but it's a pretty heinous way to say it, no?

Plus, George Lopez drunkenly passes out on a casino floor -- then does some PR wizardry to fix it using ... Charlie Sheen? It sounds crazy ... but it's a genius move.

And, Duke University's porn star student Belle Knox joins us to discuss the utter hypocrisy behind the death threats she's been receiving since being discovered.

This has NOTHING to do with Duke University. As she said, the administration has not punished her is any way. Duke is JUST the school that she happens to attend.

About the Cat story. My daughter is 20 yrs now but when she was just a new born or 1-2 month old I heard her crying, I went to look on her and our cat was sitting on her chest. She was to little and her chest muscles were to weak for her to keep breathing with the cat sitting on her chest. I did not get rid of the cat, I had a baby monitor and made sure the cat was not alone with her. Later when my daughter was older, the cat still would sit on her chest but older children or adults are stronger and are able to continue to breath or push the cat off. Babies are not strong enough to push the cat off or continue to breath for very long without becoming fatigued. So in short, cats are dangerous but you just need to take precautions. As for the milk in the mouth, cats do smell the mouth but they sit on the chest while smelling the mouth and that is the danger. Thanks.

Dr Kenneth Luckow, DVM. Kenvet810@aol. com 3/11/14: STORY ABOUT FAMILY CALLING 911 about PET CAT TERRORIZING FAMILY: You neglected to mention that this was all sparked by the toddler pulling this cat by the tail. The cat THEN scratched the child who still was trying to drag the cat by tail. The father then kicked the cat like a soccer ball, which as a vet, I will promise you injured the cat. The wailing of the cat heard on 911 tape was the cry of an Injured cat.(as revealed on channel 7 (abc, NY) on the 6pmNews. The mother ALSO said in that interview, that Lux had a "history of violence", (allegedly. He cannot defend himself). I have been a veterinarian for 35 years and have established a rescue organization to spay, neuter, heal, and home discarded animals. Stories like this, without the full details, portraying the pet as a viscious beast, just adds to people dumping their pets. Especially people who blend an existing pet with a baby or toddler. And I can promise you, that your fact lacking story will cause hundreds of pets to be abandoned. We work effortlessly to clean up the "mess", and it never ends! We rescuers do this thankless, physically and mentally draining job because we care for animals thrown out like last weeks garbage, tortured,killed) . We pay for all the care, surgeries. Etc. out of our own pockets. These unfortunate animals usually try to find their way back home, feral cats ( descendants of other discarded pets) will not accept them in their colony, and they will usually either get killed on the roads, starve to death, and will be attacked by feral who will beat them terribly when they are in their territory looking for food. As for the parents,...., that child was 5 months old.. Where were they??!! If you claim that your cat had a so-called "history of violence" , shouldn't you be monitoring the child & cat Interaction ?? This was VERY negligent on their part. NO YOUNG CHILDREN should be left unattended with ANY PET at ANY TIME! You are creating the scene for a possible preventable tragedy. Toddlers have no idea what is right or wrong. Lux looked like a cute cuddly stuffed toy, a baby could never tell the difference. Pulling the tail of an animal, ESP small pets, can create a separation or breach from the rest of the spinal cord, causing excrutiating pain and possible nerve damage. Any animal would react by turning to defend themselves trying to free themselves from the source of the pain. Totally a normal response. I would encourage our news reporters to carefully think of the consequences of their "catch stories" that have been increasing become horrible animal segments. It is obvious that these stories get an attention catching blurb at the beginning of the newscast, then left as the last story to keep the viewer watching the entire broadcast until the end. Many times these cases spark a very negative reaction by scared watchers. And we the ones trying to clean up the issues never get a break. In ny professional opinion, you are without a doubt adding to homeless animal problem . It is very sad how low our media has to go to get viewer numbers up, without any care or concern for the possible consequences they can cause. I also believe that there is a craving by the nobody's to go for their " 15minutes"! Hiding in the bedroom in "fear", YET there was time to set up a video recorder??!! REALLY?! This was alot of BS created for notoriety at the Pet's expense. As the story was reported by diff medias, the original FACTS were cut out, for controversy=RATINGS. Just disgusting. Yup, that cat looked like a savage killer!! LOL There is already bias and negativity against cats, and this BS getting out on every ave. of social media will ADD to innocent pets getting dumped,or killed!! These Basketball bubbleheads want their attention anyway they can, at any expense. Who are they to comment on such a case? Hmmm? Celebrity Crave via Controversy!! Not enough $$ in hubby's contract? Go buy Loubatons.. Some suggestions for that family, or any family with a pet and young child : Make sure that you give the pet extra attention when bringing a baby home. Remember they were the once pseudo-child and may be envious and feeling neglected when there is competition. Teach the child ASAP on interacting with the pet. The earlier the better. Never leave a toddler alone with a pet, ever. Toddlers can be strong and hurtful to an animal u intentionally. This usually does not end well, and the animal is ALWAYS the blame. Next step usually leads to the parent "getting RID Of" the animal. Which most likely will lead to the pets demise. Really, who is at fault here? Parents=answer. Get a Pet Behaviorist. They can be absolutely amazing. Jackson Galaxy, star of Animal Planet's "MY CAT FROM HELL". Jackson says 99% of the cases, like most animal behaviorists, usually focus on the People and NOT the animal. Usually behavior problems are directly connected to the people and not the pet . I really hope that you do a follow up on this story, as well as investigate ALL the facts in your future attention catcher reports!! And the myth of cats sucking air or drinking milk ( which is human Milk or formula, of NO interest to felines!!), is 1000% FALSE! Harvey, what if this was your prescious pup Regards , Dr Kenneth Luckow , DVM. Cornell University /school of Veterinary Medicine Class of '78
