Lucky Cat is based on the Japanese symbol of Maneki-neko. This cat figurine is seen all over the world, especially in businesses, and is often believed to bring good luck to the owner. Something you may not know about me: I trained and taught Isshinryu Karate-do (an Okinawan martial art) for over 12 years; when I got my teaching role, I brought a Maneki-neko into our dojo for luck.
This Lucky Cat has his right paw raised. The meaning of which paw is raised varies, but generally the left paw is to beckon customers and the right is to beckon wealth. So the left paw is for business and the right for home. I hope stitching this Lucky Cat brings prosperity into your home.
