Kim Kardashian Fires Back At Our Post — She Says ‘The Cat Was NOT Harmed!’

Tue, April 20, 2010 10:44am EDT by 19 Comments

Yesterday, Kim tweeted a photo of herself holding a little black kitty by it’s neck and her fans were OUTRAGED! We immediately told Kim she CAN’T hold a kitten like that and NOW Kim is defending herself!

Kim Kardashian snapped a photo Apr. 19 while she was at a photo shoot in Sydney, Australia gripping a black kitty cat by its neck and she Twitpic’d it. HollywoodLife.com, fans, and PETA immediately spoke out-  telling  Kim that that’s not how you pick up or hold a little cat!  Now Kim has responded to our posted by tweeting Apr. 20 “I would NEVER do anything to hurt an animal!”

But the gorgeous brunette didn’t stop there. She took to her blog to make sure her fans knew the owner of the cat was actually on set with her. “Hey guys! So yesterday I was doing a photo shoot with an adorable black kitty cat and I Twitpic’d this picture … I have been getting negative comments regarding the way I was holding the kitty, but rest assured, the owner and vet were on set and showed me how to pick him up. The cat was not harmed in any way and is perfectly fine! I love animals and would never do anything to harm any animals.

Kim, we hate to break it to you but we spoke with PETA and a PETA rep told us, that’s not how you hold a cat! “Kim Kardashian isn’t the only person who mistakenly thinks that because a mother cat picks up her kittens by the scruff of the neck, that a supportive hand under the rump isn’t needed,”  PETA rep Amanda Schinke explained to us. “Some cats prefer to be cradled, while others might like sitting up in your arms or being draped over them.”

You can hold a kitten by their necks to keep them from harm but it was a bit obsesene to allow the picture to be published. For shame!

i sure hope the government gets involved in this, passing a law on the correct way to hold a cat. i admire kim for bringing this tragedy to public light. only obama can solve this one!

why is this a big deal? the owner and a vet SHOWED HER how to pick up the cat. they told her to do it that way! if it was wrong, fine- now she knows, and the vet knows, and the owner knows. i can understand if PETA knows it is wrong and wants to point it out so it isn’t repeated, but i don’t get why this has anything to do with kim being hot/not, dumb/smart, poser/not, whatever. note to world, peta says don’t carry a cat that way… and, c’est fini!

There is nothing clever about being beautiful, heck you can even buy it now if you’ve got the money.Kim used to be Paris Hilton’s bf,and Kim wanted to be infamous as well.Kim did’nt care what she did to get the $’s and attention.Sad but true,Kim is just a poser,she looks good.But that’s no way to treat a cat.

In reality, humans are not really supposed to hold a kitten like that. A mother cat can do it cause thats what she does and has been that way for a very very long time. We shouldnt really hold cats that way. Now I dont think the kitten is being hurt or anything but it’s just a dumb thing to hold up a little kitten like a toy to show off yourself in a pic. I dont get the pic at all, even for someone who is all about showing herself off. It was just a stupid move on her part. She should just stick with taking pics of herself and leave out the animals.

PETA doesnt even know what their talkin about their all obsessed with publicity than most celebrities. if you actually look them up they dont even stand for what they believe in. if anyone believes them or even donates their money or time into the wretched organization then good job! cuz ur promoting animal killings anyways! they have articles of them killing animals! argh ppl so stupid!….and that is how u hold a cat ask any vet!

I don’t think Kimmy cares too much about animals based on the amount of leather and fur she wears. If someone skinned it and made it into a hat she’d be all into it.

She is holding the cat in a correct manner. Don’t bitch at her because she’s hot. Her show is stupid, yes, but the bitch is smokin’. Haters.

I dont understand why she/her family or any other so called reality show clown have to be on the news.
I guess there are alot of people who has nothing but watching nonsense thats made up.
What kind of quality or profession do they have we can learn from.
total stupidity who shoots and watches such shows.

Peta, you, and all her stupid fans are overreacting. The kitten is fine. Relax, people! The kitten is not a full grown cat, so picking it up that way is really no different from a mother picking it up. If it hurt the cat, why would a mother cat do it?

Kim did not fire back at Hollywood Life. She could care less what this blogs thinks. You guys made a big deal out of nothing. She is holding that cat correctly.

There’s nothing wrong with the way she’s holding this cat. You can pick up animals by the scruff (the loose skin between neck and shoulders) and it doesn’t harm them at all. It’s not like she was throwing it around – that would be a totally different story!
