Hello Kitty Is A Girl and She has a Pet that is a Cat!

The world became crazy when Sanrio corrected Christine Yano, curator of an upcoming exhibit on Hello Kitty at the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles. Yano said Sanrio considers its billion-dollar icon to be a human girl. As she put it:

“I was corrected — very firmly. 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.”

Being an ex-employee of Sanrio myself, I know this a long long time ago and we could not address Kitty as a cat nor put any verbal language in reference to a cat. She is a girl and always be one.

As Hello Kitty’s official bio says:

As tall as five apples, and as heavy as three, Hello Kitty is a bright little girl with a heart of gold. She loves to bake cookies and play the piano, and dreams of one day becoming a pianist or maybe even a poet. She has a gift for music and English, and a soft spot for Mama’s apple pie. Hello Kitty and her twin sister Mimmy are the best of friends.
So there, Kitty White is not a cat nor human, she is a girl that's for sure. Go check out the Hello Kitty Cafe at Toy Kingdom Toy Expo 2014 inside SMX today and check out the Hello Kitty booth with so much items to choose from!
