Tenants, have you heard...?
Hello Kitty is not a cat.
I repeat the blasphemy: Hello Kitty is not a cat.
I know: what?!
I too am upset.
The ever-alert Rosemary Hathaway broke the "shocking" news to me this morning, first thing, at 7:37, via text.
Then savvy newcomer Julia Daniel sent me another link this afternoon ("Saw this and thought of you").
Quite frankly, I do not believe it. Kitty has whiskers! I mean, aren't those whiskers??
And, no offense to little girls, but I would NEVER carry a lunch box with a picture of a little girl on it. Just sayin'.
I suppose all you lit. crit. types can continue to analyze Kitty as a text. Hardly matters if she's a cat or a girl. But it isn't as interesting, is it?
So what if Hello Kitty has a cat of her own (Charmmy Kitty)? What does that prove? It's not uncommon for one cat to have another (less powerful) cat as an assistant/apprentice.
Oh, and, turns out, she can play the piano, fyi. But, again, so what? Lots of cats can play the piano as well as a little girl can (or most adults).
I'll close by saying that, just by coincidence, I'm eating a Hello Kitty sugar cookie (thank you, Amanda Tustin!) that most definitely looks like the face of a cat, as any little girl would tell you.
