Wot???!!! No way!
"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.
Her real name is Kitty White, he explained, and she was born in southern England on November 1, 1974. She is a Scorpio and blood type A.
She has a twin sister, Minny White, and lives in an unnamed suburb of London with father George and mother Mary, according to her profile on the web.
Despite her whiskers and pointy ears, just like the rest of her family, Kitty has her own pet -- a "real" cat named Charmmy Kitty."

If my youngest daughter sees this she will cry.

Hello Kitty is the embodiement of the self-entrepreneurial dream. An expat Japanese man living in a small flat in London on ad-hoc commercial artists commissions draws a figure that can be reasonably reproduced by a third grader and leverages it into a multi-million dollar "brand empire".

So I am confused by this announcement… they really don't say she is Human either. I was kinda hoping she was a little girl who thought she was a cat and wore a big papermache cat head.
Then what are her friends?

My kids would probably love this. Me? Not so much! Thankfully, it is not a *real* product.

They've sort of walked it back since the initial statement. Claim it was a translation problem. Now they say she's a cat-person in her own world. Unless and until they change it again.

Cartoonist Mike Peters referenced this in a recent "Mother Goose And Grimm" strip.
