Ok, so you know how our minds were blown early in the morning when the first thing we read on our news feed was that major cult icon Hello Kitty is not, in fact, a kitty at all! Yes, the most shocking piece of news that has the world gasping with disbelief is that Hello Kitty is not cat, but a cartoon of a girl!
Apparently, Hello Kitty is a British girl Kitty White, a perpetual third-grader, who has a twin sister and a cat and lives with her parents just outside London, confirmed Sanrio (the company that owns Hello Kitty).
So, turns out Hello Kitty is just like Mickey Mouse, who’s not really a mouse but a human boy (what mouse owns a human house and a pet dog?!).
