So by this logic Mickey Mouse isn't a mouse, Donald Duck isn't a duck, etc. So what if she has a pet cat? There is goofy AND pluto. A mouse with a pet dog... Since when do cartoons need to make that much sense? lol She even has KITTY in her title AND her name. Makes you want to look at them and ask, "are you serious?" Okay so she can't just be a girl cat? I mean, it's pretty apparent that's what she is.
You can't let people think all these years that Hello Kitty is a cat and then pull this. It's obviously a publicity stunt.
I for one refuse to believe it. Call it denial or whatever but that's how I feel. She's a cat. End of story! :p
