Ashley, I don't need to educate myself. I've had vets who can simply soothe a nervous cat with very little effort, and without having to resort to what I consider extreme measures. I'm not saying that it's crazy animal abuse - I just wouldn't subject any cat of mine to a vet who practised this method. As I said before, it's unnecessary.

houndogg referred to picking up the cat, so I addressed the fact that it would be a really bad idea to pick up an adult cat by the neck.

Also @ted, you shouldn't pick up an adult cat that way, but having them just lie on the table like that is fine. Picking them up puts all their body weight against the clip and could result in their skin separating from the connective tissue underneath.
