With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner do you have luck on your side? If you have a Maneki Neko then the answer might be “yes”. Known as Lucky Cats or Fortune Cats, the name Maneki Neko might not be familiar to you but what if I described it as the little cat figurine popular near cash registers in Asian restaurants and supermarkets. Now do you know what I’m talking about? Another fun fact about this small critter, which has been around since the 17th century, has to do with which paw it’s holding up and waving. If it’s the left, this is supposed to attract customers. If the right paw is raised, then good fortune and money are coming your way. No matter what paw is raised or what name you call this little feline – luck will find you. Read more about the Maneki Neko here. Do you have a Fortune Cat by your side?
