How to pick a CAT up part 1
People shouldn’t ever pick cats up by the scruff of the neck, not even tiny baby kittens. Our hands are big and clumsy, we don’t know how much pressure is necessary to clamp a kitten between thumb and forefinger and we aren’t cats.
Cats carry kittens by the nape of the neck only until they are big enough to run around, and then stop. After that the kitten’s body is too heavy for such treatment.
Having its whole weight hung from the nape of the neck can injure any cat more than six weeks old. The cat might get an abdominal rupture and it’s eyes might pop out of their sockets!
