Hello Kitty for president?

The recent revelation that Hello Kitty is actually a little girl, and not a cat, will not affect any of the feline-looking female’s potential 2016 presidential plans.

The Los Angeles Times made the shocking disclosure this week in a story about an upcoming Hello Kitty museum exhibit. The museum’s curator says the company behind Hello Kitty, Sanrio, told her, “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.”
