This is a luck attracting cat, also known as Maneki Neko. Also known as a Beckoning cat or welcoming cat or some other names that you can find on the Wikipedia page for this cat. It's a phenomenon that I don't quite get and don't really believe in. Maybe that is because I am not much of a cat person. No offence to cats and cat lovers.
I have hamsters. Cats hate hamsters.
Anyway, I have a couple of these at home (one would wonder why I am not a freaking millionaire already) because business people like to keep these cats so that they can beckon money, luck, good health and prosperity. All really amazing things to have, as you can see.
But it wasn't me who bought them. Someone else in the family who ran businesses bought it but here it sits. This one is a money box. I should put money in it!! THAT's why I am not a millionaire yet! OK, so, here goes. I will put money in this thing from now on.
Since it was dusty from all that sitting around, I gave it bath.
Have a good weekend, people!
