Maneki-Neko 招财猫 ...


The lucky cat adorns the entrance to many
Chinese and Japanese Restaurant I have visited
...
I think it is called "Beckoning Cat"
which is believed to bring good luck to the owner
...
I wish you Good Luck today

It is funny that these cats are waving. In Europe this is goodbey, in China I believe it is an invitation to come in.
