'Hello Kitty' is not a cat

Apparently, Hello Kitty is *not* a cat!
The globally-popular children's character turns 40 this year.
And her creators say -- no -- she is not a cat.
   
That's according to Sanrio -- the Japanese company that owns and manages the "Hello Kitty" brand.
   
The Los Angeles Times reports Sanrio now officially describes Hello Kitty as a little girl from London.
   
Sanrio forbids any depiction of the character walking on all fours, or in other distinctly cat-like activities.
