Hello Kitty isn’t a cat?
According to Sanrio, the company who holds the trademark on the beloved cultural icon, Hello Kitty is a cartoon character. She has never been depicted as a four legged creature (i.e. walking on all fours). She even had a pet cat (huh?).
Okay, Sanrio can say whatever it wants about their character, but to me, she walks like a human and looks like a cat. Case closed, right?
Hello Kitty is celebrating her 40th anniversary this year. My question is, if Hello Kitty was never a cat, why did it take 40 years to say so?
Something is rotten in the state of Denmark if you ask me.
Just go on ahead and shatter all my childhood beliefs, Sanrio, why don’t you? To me, she’ll always be a cat.
This apparently is a big deal, as it’s being discussed on social media and TV news broadcasts (slow news day, huh?).
