The Cathood of the Travelling Hello Kitty Head

As has been well established, Hello Kitty by herself is frightening, but Hello Kitty fanatics rarely are able to leave this frightfulness alone. They have to test the limits. They do this by projecting that their love of Hello Kitty must also be shared by their pets. So they decide that placing a Hello Kitty face on their cats and dogs would be a good idea.

Now, one would assume that it could never get worse than this (mainly because it’s so nightmarishly frightening that nobody in their right mind would want to even try to take it further), but of course, it can always get worse in Hello Kitty Hell. That is because once Hello Kitty fanatics have their cat and the Hello Kitty hood, they then think “Wow, wouldn’t it be great to create something with Hello Kitty like Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants?” The result? They make a group called “The Cathood of the Travelling Hello Kitty Head” (although I wish I was, I kid you not…)

Of course, my wife thinks this is the greatest idea since Hello Kitty toast and wants to join. “Wouldn’t our cats just look adorable in that and then we could share their photos with everyone all over the world” (an informal poll of our cats say that they are siding with me that it would definitely not be “adorable” and have even indicated they will be willing to sleep with me on the couch in the Hello Kitty sleeping bag if worst comes to worst).

According to the group leader of “The Cathood of the Travelling Hello Kitty Head” is off to England and Australia — which begs the question – is there any doubt that it will one day make its way to Japan? And while this entire concept is nightmarishly frightening (the cats and I are still arguing whether it it more nightmarish for me or them), we all know that in Hello Kitty Hell this will somehow find a way to get worse…

Sent in by Valerie (via Hello Kitty Fan Club Catster Group – where there are many more photos for those who have the stomach — scroll to bottom) who should have to wear these Hello Kitty heads herself for the rest of her life to get a feeling of how these cats must feel for even considering that sending me the link was a good idea…

  1. I laughed so hard at the siamese pic. It’s like a kittified version of Alien, wherin HK extends her jaws and has another kitty head explode out of her mouth.

  2. I wore it and it wasn’t that bad. It was only for a few minutes and Mom gave me LOTS of praise and treats. And the head was light and didn’t hurt at all … except for my dignity, of course, but did I mention the treats?

    And that’s my sister Spike with the HK Head on her box of ashes! She didn’t complain at all (haha)!

  3. That is soooo mean. those cats can’t possibly be comfortable in those. they all look like they want to kill you in your sleep, or claw off your limbs for putting something as ridiculous as that on them. i know people love hello kitty, and are obsessed with it, but this is just too far.

  4. Those Cats Look Pissed. Period.
    Plus its totally cruel to them to make them walk around in those hats, just for you to be part of this clan. Thats probally equal to us walking around in a hat thats a foot tall, filled with stuffing. You might as well just go put the poor things in a torture chamber. My cats were happier when my 1 and a half year old son shove them through our railing and drooped them,(they were okay tho xD)

  5. Courtney, who said any of the kitties were walking around in this hat?? This was a quick picture. My cat in the first picture did not mind it at all. She isnt smiling in the picture but cats do not smile. She loves the attention. And was purring and rubbing against me. I’m laughing at all these postings. You people need to lighten up. Our cats are all very loved and spoiled. And the moms of the cats have all become great friends. That is what the character Hello Kitty stands for – Friendship.

  6. haha…ok I too have stumbled across this website in search on all things Hello Kitty so I’m not too sure what HK products you or rather your wife have owned or discussed in this blog.
    My liking of HK has come from spending the past few years working in Japan during summer. It was here that I discovered soo many kitty things- like the HK banana cover, which I am now a proud owner of.
    On my last trip to Japan I came across these Hello Kitty heads, however there was one difference – they were for humans. Yes humans, you can now dress up as HK and yes I did buy one, and I wear it often haha jks.
    I’m not sure of how to dispay pictures but I have one on my facebook account…heres the link (im not sure if it will work tho!) sorry

    I look forward to hearing of other wonderful HK products you come across!!

  7. Well, this is the ultimate proof that HK fans are deluded and insensitive! Those cats’ expressions range from resigned to really p!$$ed off!

    I love Mustang Sally’s comment. The 4th rule of TFOTTHKH is “If at all possible, blame the dog!”

  8. Oh, Rizza, please no!!! Don’t bring that thing in here!!! I’m gonna be evil and hope that it gets caught up in customs because of all the different cat fiber stuck on it 😉

    … and the whole pretending to be your cat thing … very scary …

  9. emma-chan- thank you for that link. We actually were looking for that head for humans to pass around to the Mothers of the “Cathood” cat and to take pictures of all of us!!

  10. OH MI GOSh. THE POOR POOR CATTS!!!! why don’t they go have plastic surgery to look like hello kitty while they’re at it?!?

  11. I’m fairly sure that hat doesn’t smell of friendship. And no matter how light the hats are and for how short a period they were left on the cats, it’s still creepy and borderline cruel to want to dress your animals up as stuff. Oh, sure, it started with the creepy head that made it look like the cat was being DEVOURED ALIVE BY A HUGE WHITE FAT HELLO KITTY, but where will it end? Where?
    And Rizza, shame on you for getting that thing sent into this country!!

  12. I am a proud member of Catster and I think there are a lot of people commenting here who really need to lighten up. You obviously don’t know how to spot genuine animal cruelty. My cats have never worn the HK head, but they did wear a birthday hat once. It lasted about six seconds, I took the picture and they were fine. The most spoiled and loved cats in the world are on Catster.

  13. my name is hello. i’m a 6 month old white kitten and i’m proud to be named after hello kitty. i can’t wait for the hello kitty head to arrive at my house. my mommy is even toilet training me. i have a website and will post a photo of me in the hello kitty head once it gets here

  14. i hope you all die of furballs. can u imagine how hot and uncomfortable those poor creatures are, you dumbbutts!!! i am now reporting all of you abusive gits to aspca. may you all fry in hell for your cruelty…

  15. why would you put a cat head on a cats head?? This doesn’t at all make sense to me… plus, I have 3 cats who would most definately scratch my eyes out while I was sleeping for making them wear that thing.

  16. For the sake of the cats I really hope they have to wear those *cough* *cough* *cough* things only for the sake of pictures
    The only thing that should be put on animals are body warmers if you live in a country where , in winter, the degrees plumit to -10 degrees C

  17. Poor Kittys! If I were a cat with an owner who made me wear this, I would feel like I had a bag on my head that kept comming back and wouldn’t come off! Poor kitty’s!!! It would be hell to be a cat with an owner who is a Hello Kitty fanatic!

  18. those are not happy cats… Busby I hope there’s a social worker in your area who can help you out coz surely that’s torture?

  19. Holy Hell, those poor cats. It makes me wonder who will win in world dominance first: McDonald’s, Starbucks, Walmart, or Hello Kitty. I think now is the time to start sabotaging HK by burning and blowing up everything HK you find.

  20. those cats look like they’re gonna fling that hello kitty head off and rip it into pieces! poor kitties! this is like torture haha

  21. Poor kitties….especially the one in the first pic. It looks like that horrible giant Hello Kitty head crushed its soul.

  22. As soon as I saw this, I walked over to my cat, gave him a hug, and promised never to do something this stupid to him.

    Besides… he’s bloody Basement Cat… .___. he’d kill me in my sleep.

  23. Funny how none of the cats in those pictures look delighted to have that travelling hello kitty head on their heads. I think they would rather stay in their apartments than go out looking like that.
