Yes, this is real! This Taiwan maternity hospital welcomes baby to the world in all that is Hello Kitty.
Newborns get everything Hello Kitty but a set of whiskers, including pink or blue receiving blankets, nurses dressed in pink uniforms with cat-themed aprons, cot linen and room decor.
In the lobby, a Hello Kitty statue in a doctor's uniform greets patients, and twice a year people in feline costumes visit mothers and children.
The cat's likeness even shows up on birth certificate covers.
Kimono-clad Hello Kitty holds her certificate received from Japan's Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism Minister Tetsuzo Fuyushiba, left, at his office in Tokyo on Monday. Fuyushiba appointed the popular cartoon character as ambassador to welcome tourists from China and Hong Kong
