Surprising news for Hello Kitty fans, Hello Kitty is NOT a cat!

Despite the name ‘Hello Kitty’ and what looks to be whiskers on its face, its not a cat. Sanrio, the Japanese company behind the popular character confirms that ‘Hello Kitty is not a cat, but actually she’s a cartoon character, she’s a little girl. She’s never depicted on all fours, she walks and sits like a two-legged creature.

There is a cat involved here somewhere though, the ‘Hello Kitty’ character does have a pet cat of her own, named ‘Charmmy Kitty’. In a bio on the official Sanrio fan site, the character is described as a cheerful happy little girl, who lives in London with her Mom and twin sister.

We talked about this earlier on the show today, and Michael and Larry were very surprised to learn that I am not a fan of Hello Kitty! Of course, being a lover of cats, it would be expected that I’d be a fan of the character, but really, it’s never done anything for me. I think it’s cute, but I have never bought any ‘Hello Kitty’ merchandise before!
