28 NOV, 2014 1,342 views Funny

By now you’ve already heard the earth-shattering news that sent Hello Kitty lovers into a spin.

Just in case you have been living under a rock, Sanrio, the creators of Hello Kitty, just made this astounding comment:

Hello Kitty is not a cat. She’s a cartoon character. She is a little girl. She is a friend. But she is not a cat. She’s never depicted on all fours. She walks and sits like a two-legged creature. She does have a pet cat of her own, however, and it’s called Charmmy Kitty.

Yes, the favorite feline-looking character that the world had fallen in love with since 1974 has been confirmed by her maker that she’s really not a cat. She’s in fact a human British girl named Kitty White with her own backstory:

She is a Scorpio. She loves apple pie. And she is the daughter of George and Mary White.

Okaaay.

Here are 20 purr-fect responses to the purr-turbing news, as seen on Twitter.

I just got off stage to find out that Hello Kitty is not a cat. This is worse than finding out Pluto is not a planet.

I'm less concerned with Hello Kitty not being a cat and more concerned with why she's been held back in third grade for 40 years.

Not surprised about Hello Kitty. Tired of cats acting like they're people. Sitting on chairs. Not sharing their water.
