    A human girl with whiskers and ears sticking out of the top of her head?

    Sure...whatever.

    how stupid.

    I generally see characters as blank slates to project my own image, which is often why I come away dissapointed when books and such turn into movies as they do not meet my projections.

    the original creator can claim anything they want, but when these things are introduced into society, society ultimately gets to decide how to interpret the art.

    Well as a 71-year old man I'm not a Hello Kitty fan , but this does come as a big surprise to me.
    And of course this all turned out to be errors in translation and reporting. Don't Be Silly, Hello Kitty Is a Cat

    When Kotaku called Sanrio's Tokyo headquarters today and asked whether or not Hello Kitty was indeed a cat, a spokesperson explained, "Hello Kitty was done in the motif of a cat. It's going too far to say that Hello Kitty is not a cat. Hello Kitty is a personification of a cat."


    The specific word that the Sanrio spokesperson used to describe Hello Kitty was "gijinka" (擬人化), which means "anthropomorphization" or "personification."

    One again, to clarify, I asked the Sanrio spokesperson, "Then, it would be going too far to say that Hello Kitty was not a cat?" The spokesperson replied, "Yes, that would be going too far."

    Actually a Japanese cartoonists depiction of a human girl with whiskers and ears on the top of her head.

    Hello Kitty is a 7-Billion Dollars a year business!

    You will note Sanrio never claimed she was a human.

    I'm sure the Japanese at Sanrio are befuddled by this barbarian inquisition regarding a cartoon character.

    I'm still confuse as to why they created a little British girl but gave her cats ears and whiskers.

    Hello Kitty not a cat, company says ... or is she? | Fox News

    Some other facts about Hello Kitty, according to Yano:

    • She's British.

    • She is a Scorpio.

    • She loves apple pie.

    • She has a twin sister, and is a perpetual third-grader.

    • Her actual name is Kitty White.
