SorryEdit

I used word replace and it was on while I edited this page https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?diff=701391386. I will remember not to use word replace when editing wikipedia. Sorry. I had simply seen a keyboard mash and was trying to erase it.

Also, I'm not a racist. The kk ---> Ku Klux Klan replacement comes from an inside joke.

On whether the article's subject character is, or is not, a catEdit

The introductory paragraph points out as of this writing that "Though she appears to be anthropomorphic, according to her creators she is not a cat: she is simply a cartoon character", while the sidebar assures the reader that not only is the character a cat, but is of the species "Japanese Bobtail".

This may not be a contradiction--for example, the introductory paragraph may report that the character is not a cat "according to her creators" but it may secretly harbor the opinion that the character is indeed a cat regardless of her creators' statements, as reflected by the sidebar. Or, it may simply be an apparent contradiction, that resolves itself upon meditation.

Whatever the applicable catness may or may not be, I leave it in the hands of editors familiar with the subject matter to ponder the issue, and if any correction be needed, to design and implement same. Peace. 70.35.184.55 (talk) 02:50, 13 April 2018 (UTC)

It says right here that she is a cat. http://www.thehive.asia/2014/08/update-hello-kitty-is-indeed-cat.html The Hello Kitty Wiki claims that "As of 8/28/14 it was rumored Hello Kitty is a human girl and not a cat. However, it has been confirmed that Hello Kitty is actually a gijinka (anthropomorphic) cat and not human." — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.163.62.221 (talk) 22:07, 18 June 2018 (UTC)

What does her name mean?Edit

The article says that her Japanese name is Harō Kiti. I have a slight experience with the Japanese language and I don't think Haro means hello. I could be wrong. I was expecting the article to address this. PopSci (talk) 12:08, 23 June 2018 (UTC)

The name appears to be correct, although, most of the time, it is seen as "Haroo Kiti", and the Japanese refer to her, mostly, by her original name, "Kitty White". Whether the word "haro(o)" is a bastardization of the word "hello" is unknown to me, but many modern Japanese words borrow from English ones, so, it may be more than a coincidence. The "Hello Kitty" wiki is at http://hellokitty.wikia.com/wiki/Hello_Kitty . The Kanji and its pronounciation may be seen and heard here: https://translate.google.com/#auto/es/%E3%83%8F%E3%83%AD%E3%83%BC%E3%82%AD%E3%83%86%E3%82%A3 . Skaizun (talk) 20:44, 14 August 2018 (UTC)
