Hello Kitty is Somehow Not Actually a Cat ...

By Lyndsie โ€ข โ€ข

In a revelation that has somehow taken the internet by storm and turned it upside down, an avid researcher of Hello Kitty just announced that your entire life is a lie. In addition to having no mouth, Hello Kitty is somehow not of the feline persuasion. Because the little cutie has delighted children, teens, and adults alike since her inception, everyone is kind of freaking out.

Here's what's crazy. News outlets and magazines everywhere are reporting on this โ€“ including AWS, because I am floored. I mean, even Vanity Fair has had something to say about this. To wit, Christine R. Yano, who wrote Pink Globalization: Hello Kitty's Trek Across the Pacific, broke the news. She told the LA Times, โ€œHello 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.โ€ Yano also pointed out that she has a cat of her own.

But I'm confused, I suppose. Can't she be a cat and a cartoon character โ€“ and a friend? If it has cat ears and cat whiskers, isn't it a cat? Why does everything suddenly seem like a lie?

I refuse to believe it! Of course she's a cat

The people have spoken....Hello Kittty IS a cat!

i dont believe this... if she's a girl, those must be crows feet, no whiskers

They say that hello kitty is a demon

This is so stupid. Hello Kitty is cat. I rally doubt it's just a little girl. A little girl doesn't look like furry cat. And besides why is it calls Hello 'kitty' anyways if it isn't a cat??

And it's hello KITTY after all...

Goofy is a dog that walks on two legs and talks yet his friend Mickey has Pluto who walks and acts like a dog. That doesn't mean Goofy isn't a dog!

Why is it such a big fuss?

Ok sorry but this is dumb, it's a cartoon character that looks like a cat. It's a cat. Just because someone said it doesn't walk on four legs doesn't mean it isn't a cat. Plus she's called hello kitty.

I dont know many little girls with whiskers. Still believing she's a cat. Next they're going to say Spongebob isn't a sponge...
