Maneki Neko aka Lucky Cat

Posted by
tubby (Singapore, Singapore) on 1 March 2010 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

Maneki Neko is also named as 招き猫, "Beckoning Cat"; also known as Welcoming Cat, Lucky Cat, Money cat, or Fortune Cat.

Chanced upon this cute looking Maneki Neko one evening while I was running some errands and was reminded of a very good friend. Can't resist not buying this as it's so-so adorable. Maneki Neko has been associated with good luck for a very long time, hope it bring us abundance of good luck and blessings wherever we are.

I have 招き猫. He is gold and a bank. I got him in Chinatown San Francisco. Yeah only semi authentic ;) I love these cats though and this one is darling! Your lighting is so warm here too, very complimentary.
