(Newser) – Congratulations, Kim Kardashian: You managed to piss off PETA without wearing fur or eating meat! After the reality TV fixture tweeted a photo of herself holding a kitten by the scruff of the neck, the animal rights organization was quick to respond: “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,” a rep tells the New York Daily News.

The SPCA, however, says it’s fine to hold a kitten that way, briefly—but says it still thinks “the manner in which Ms. Kardashian is holding the kitten could lead others to mishandle animals.” Kardashian was quick to blog about her good intentions, noting that the cat’s owner and veterinarian gave her pose a thumbs-up.
