Curvy beauty Kim Kardashian shows dedication to fans after kitten incident To Kim Kardashian, her fans are everything. That's why the reality TV beauty spends so long on her Twitter account, sharing photos and conversing with her 3.4 million followers.

And whenever she's working, she always tries to make time for those who have turned up hoping to meet her.

That was the case this week when the glam brunette made a promo appearance at a department store in Melbourne.

The 29-year-old mingled with her Aussie fans, many of whom had waited hours to see her. And she happily signed autographs and posed for pictures.

While Down Under this week, Kim has completed a run of personal appearances and photoshoots.

She managed to spark controversy during one, however, when she posted a picture of herself on Twitter holding a kitten by the scruff of the neck.

After a flood of complaints from fans worried she was hurting the little cat, Kim took to her official website to defend herself.

"Rest assured, the owner and vet were on set and showed me how to pick him up," she explained.

"The cat was not harmed in any way and is perfectly fine! I love animals and would never do anything to harm any animals."
