Is there Really a Lucky Cat?

Neko, The Lucky Cat

Yes, his name is Neko, named after the Japanese lucky cats, Maneki Neko. We brought him home shortly after losing our Bella to feline breast cancer. He was about 12 weeks old and was found in the road near his mother who had been ran over by a car. After a story like that, he needed a good name, so we searched long and hard for the perfect name for our new "furry friend" addition.

Maneki Neko traditionally means "beckoning cat" and is believed to bring luck and fortune to their owner. Typically they are small ceramic sculptures seen in homes and places of business. Our Neko was a survivor and we consider him very lucky.

Neko is unique and extremely special to us and he is the inspiration behind Lucky Cat Studio.
