Luck, Money or Love:
Which Will Neko Bring?
How lucky is your Neko cat? A million yen lucky? Or rich in romance or long life? Maneki Neko (“Beckoning Cat”) dates to Japan’s Edo Period (1600s). The paws, color, and gifts indicate the type of luck bestowed. This copper bell with happy jingle is one of the luckiest Neko styles:
* Right paw raised brings money and good fortune
* White for purity, creativity, a positive future
* A koban, gold coin worth a huge sum of money
* Bib, collar & bell, cherished adornments
Shopkeepers believe Neko figurines bring good business. Keep one by your computer. Better yet, put a Neko on your cat’s collar – because as we all know, cats love to come between you and your computer.
