[ # ] If Hello Kitty talks like a cat, walks like a cat, then…oh crap!
August 28th, 2014 under Unadmirable People


For the last 40 years, millions of girls have grown up loving Hello Kitty and thinking she was a cat. Well yesterday The LA Times broke a story that crushed all of their hearts because her creator, Sanrio, says she is not a cat. Whhhhhhaaaaaaaatttttttt?
Christine R Yano was writing up her description for an exhibit at the Japanese American National Museum and she asked for approval from Sanrio. In the script, she kept referring to Hello Kitty as a cat and Sanrio corrected her. They told her, “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.” But she looks like a cat, she has a Japanese Bobtail’s tale and she has whiskers. So how is she not a cat?
According to Hello Kitty’s official fan site, her real name is Kitty White. The fansite adds, “Hello Kitty is a cheerful and happy little girl with a heart of gold. She lives in London with her mama (Mary White), papa (George White), and her twin sister Mimmy.” The fansite also describes some of her other friends as the animals they are depicted as, but none of the felines on the page (except for Charmmy Kitty) are referred to as cats.
I am sorry, but is she looks like a cat, then she is a cat. If she is a little girl Sanrio, then make her look like a little girl. Am I right?
Sanrio, to destroy something so precious after all of these years is so messed up and I am boycotting you and all of your products from now on. Signed a former Hello Kitty fan.
