Maneki Neco

This is a little treasure I picked up at a thrift store many years ago for a dollar. “Fortune Cat is known as Maneki Neko in Japanese, which means “beckoning cat.” The cat has its paw raised as if it’s waving in good fortune for its owners. Other common monikers include Lucky Cat, Money Cat, Waving Cat and Welcoming Cat.” –Holly Tse with

  1. What a great find and for only a dollar. If COVID-19 keeps us staying close to home much longer, I may be photographing some of my similar finds. I actually have a cool little cup fashioned from a canister used for shoe shine polish. I bought it when I lived in El Salvador. It too was only a dollar. I hope your cat brings you lots of luck today.
