Goodbye Kitty (noun): a person, usually female, who believes that mimicking some of the characteristics of a cat - mewing, purring, icky little rubbing gestures - will make them appear cute, fey and eccentric, but actually makes normal well-adjusted adults want to forcefeed them Happy Shopper tinned catfood, shove their faces in a litter tray or simply stove in their cranium with a blunt instrument.
