Hello Kitty not a real cat? Gretchen reveals her real mom!

posted by:

I first heard it on the Today show this morning: Hello Kitty is not, in actuality, even a cat.

I wondered if my entire life was a lie?

Apparently I wasn’t the only one and be sure to check out our beloved Gretchen’s hilarious post about the matter.


Late last night, the news broke. The internet went wild. Bafflement ensued. The masses learned Hello Kitty is not actually a Felis catus sporting a Redis Hairbowis near her pointy little ear. Many expressed shock and wonderment at the news. Of course Hello Kitty is a cat. She has ears and whiskers! Next, you’ll be telling us that Goofy is not a kangaroo.

It turns out Hello Kitty is a third grader named Kitty White.

As I read about Hello Kitty, it slowly dawned on me. I am the mother of Hello Kitty. Of course, there are a few inconsistencies but the main facts are this:

~ Beatrix is in third grade. So is Hello Kitty.

~ Beatrix’s nickname since birth has been “Kitty Cat” or just “Kitty.” In fact, we call her “Kitty” more than we call her Beatrix sometimes. I wake her up every morning by saying, “Kitty, time to get up Kitty-girl!”

    Maybe they’re not even really teenagers either.

    I long doubted they weren’t mutants.
