STOP IT: Hello Kitty Is Not A Cat

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & True

hello kitty is not a cat but a girl

After we heard this piece of news our world turned upside down!

According to Sanrio, the company behind Hello Kitty, the famous character is NOT a cat. We repeat, Hello Kitty is NOT a cat.

Uhm, yeah, we're confused too.

Christine R. Yano, an anthropologist from the University of Hawaii who is curating the upcoming Hello Kitty retrospective at the Japanese American National Museum in October, uncovered the crazy truth.

Christine explained:

"That's one correction Sanrio made for my script for the show. Hello Kitty is not a cat. She's a cartoon character. She is a little girl. She is a friend. But she is not a cat. She's never depicted on all fours. She walks and sits like a two-legged creature. She does have a pet cat of her own, however, and it's called Charmmy Kitty."

Well, we guess it would be weird for a cat to own another cat!

What we don't understand is why a "human" looks so much like a…CAT!

So, what's going to rock our world next? Is Goofy not a dog because Pluto is on all fours?

Now that we think about it?!

    This is stupid. Of course she's a cat. I've read articles in the past, produced by Sanrio directly, that she's a cat. NOW all of a sudden it's stated that Sanrio changed their output that she's a British "HUMAN" living outside London??? This is no different than when they demoted Pluto as a planet. Either people are losing interest and they needed publicity, or they just wanna rekindle the excitement.. This is anything BUT exciting.
