The moon-faced kitten, seen almost everywhere from notebooks, paper dolls, fuzzy pillows, being a stuff toy, pencil case and pajama is in fact—human.
Hello Kitty isn't a cat, confirmed by the company behind the global icon of Japan, despite the insistence of Internet users worldwide. Though, the netizens reasoned: "But she has whiskers!"
"Hello Kitty is a cheerful young woman with golden heart," said by the brand owner Sanrio on their website.
The shocking revelation took when Hawaiian-based academic specializing in the epitome of kawaii ('cute' in Japanese) asked Sanrio for fact-check about captions for the exhibit celebrating the 40th anniversary of Hello Kitty.
According to Christine Yano, an anthropologist from the University of Hawaii, "The correction was very firmly". Sanrio's Hello Kitty is not a cat, and the actual identity of the worldwide Japanese icon as a cartoon character.
- She is a young woman. A friendly one but not a pussy cat. She never seen walking on four legs. She speaks and sit using two feet.
- It's 100% personified character taken that cat design motif, but there is no element of setting that makes Hello Kitty a cat.
- The real name of Japanese 'cute' icon is Kitty White.
- She was born in southern England on November 1, 1974.
- Her zodiac was Scorpio.
- Has a blood type A.
- She has a twin sister named Minny White, and they live on unspecified place in London suburbs with their father George and mother, Mary, based on the profile of Hello Kitty on the web.
