It was recently revealed that Hello Kitty is not a cat but a girl. The news caused an uproar all over the internet because it's contrary to what most people believe.
Here's quote from Sanrio via the LA Times:
"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."
The team at Dorkly created a comic that answers a major question about Hello Kitty's appearance — where did she get the head? Enjoy.
