Hello Kitty, created by Yuko Shimizu, is a Japanese Bobtail Cat. Her full name is Kitty White; Hello Kitty is just a nickname. Her family's names are Mimmy White, George White, Mary White, Anthony, and Margaret. She came about when Shintaro Tsuji, founder of Sanrio, began selling rubber sandals with painted flowers and cute characters on them. She appeared in the lineup of characters in 1974. Her first appearance was on a vinyl coin purse where she was sitting between a bottle of milk and a goldfish bowl. She made her first appearance in the U.S. in 1976. She is also British, despite her species, because at the time, foreign countries (especially Britain) were trendy in Japan.
