She's been described as a sex kitten, wears a cat suit and makes most grown men purr, so reality TV starlet Kim Kardashian wants you to be sure she would never hurt any of her feline friends.

"Rest assured, the owner and vet were on set and showed me how to pick him up," Kardashian wrote in a blog post Monday, referring to a photo showing her holding a cat by the scruff of its neck during a photo shoot. "The cat was not harmed in any way and is perfectly fine! I love animals and would never do anything to harm any animals."
