I know very little about Japan or Maneki Nekos. Adrian brought them up to me and they look like something fun to explore as a Cat's Way concept later.
Love the middle one!
I have learned, after looking at an article about it, that Maneki Nekos are suppose to be calicoes. I don't know if you know what that it is, but it is the cat with white, black, and orange fur and is a fur pattern in 16 different breeds. The only reason I know is cuz I have a calico.
I love their organic look. Very original and cute!
My sisters boyfriend absolutely loves these lil cats. Don't know why he suddenly loves them but we got him a lil gold waving one in with his birthday and he always makes sure it's got batteries XD
