Ha Die Katja

The clay statue of "Hey, That Cathy".

"Hey, That Cathy" is a poem about a mentally handicapped cat who talks about not being able to find a family that'll accept her looks or behaviour.
The poem was written by VampireMeerkat in Dutch, and originally titled "Ha, Die Katja". The greeting is considered the cat's name and was meant to parody Hello Kitty.

The poem is grammatically incorrect on purpose and a silly-looking clay interpretation of the character accompanied it. They were gifts to one of the artist's siblings for the Dutch holiday "Sinterklaas" (December 5, 2012), who liked Hello Kitty at the time.

It was eventually uploaded at a Dutch poem website on May 5, 2013, but the character was never put to use.

Poem


"Ha, Die Katja" is mijn naam.
Ik kom van zeer erg ver vandaan.
Mijn familie kunt mij niet meer aan.
Daarom hebbe zij me weg gedaan.

Zij dachten ik niet slim te zijn,
door mijn spreken en brein zo klein.
Maar ik weten alles, meer dan jij,
misschien.
Maar zij hebbe niet zin om dat te zien.

"Ha, Die Katja" is mijn naam.
Ik kom van zeer erg ver vandaan.
Mijn familie kunt mij niet meer aan.
Daarom hebbe zij me weg gedaan.

Ik bij veel gezinnen gezijn.
Zij altijd zeggen dat zij zo blij.
Maar dan zij kijken naar hoofdje van mij,
en willen mij liever niet meer erbij.

Uiteindelijk zijn ik toch liever alleen,
dan in een gezellig huis met liegerds om me heen.

"Ha, Die Katja" is mijn naam.
Ik kom van zeer erg ver vandaan.
Mijn familie kunt mij niet meer aan.
Daarom hebbe zij me weg gedaan.

I'm from much very far away.
My family caldn't take me anymore.
That's why they getted rid of me.

because of my talking and brain so small.
But I knows everything, more than you,

I are been with many families.
They always say that they so happy.
But then they look at little head of mine,
and rather no longer want me there.

In the end, I'd rather are alone,
than in a cozy house with lyingers around me.
