KITTY IN THE CITY!

She's been an astronaut, a strawberry farmer, a disco queen, and even a horse jockey for unicorns.

Hello Kitty follows the pop duo Puffy AmiYumi in the VIP role, and since she's so beloved around the world, it seems like an easy sell. There's only two things a true Hello Kitty fan might wonder:
1. Hello Kitty may have been created in Japan, but she actually lives in London (at least according to her Sanrio bio). How does that work?
2. Can she really speak about the incredible opportunities in her country if she doesn't have a mouth?
