• The maneki-neko is a common Japanese figurine often believed to bring good luck to the owner. It is also translated as "beckoning cat". The figurine depicts a cat (traditionally a calico Japanese Bobtail) beckoning with an upright paw, and is usually displayed-often at the entrance-of shops, restaurants, pachinko parlors, and other businesses. It makes perfect sense to offer Maneki Neko Cat in the form of a money bank; To accumulate wealth and good fortune!
• Maneki neko beckoning cats can be found with either left or right paw raised and sometimes with both hands raised in a "banzai" pose. Originally maneki neko had their left hands raised as Japanese traditionally drank from sake cups with their left hands and poured it with their right hands. To be called a left-hander or "lefty" was to be acknowledged as a drinker and socialite. Thus left hand raised has the meaning of beckoning friends and welcoming good fortune, happiness and harmony.
