  1. An image from Gotoku-ji shrine near Tokyo. This shrine is dedicated entirely to cats, and is considered the birthplace of the maneki neko, or beckoning cat.

    On Saturday, I will be posting more about my visit to this shrine and other cat-related adventures in Japan, so please come back!

  2. I’ve seen a lot of cat statues like that here in Manila specifically in China Town. They say it’s supposed to bring luck.

    Happy WW! 🙂

  3. WOW! Those are real??? They have that cat in The Sims 2, a PC game. I thought it was just something in the game. LOL. I had no idea that cat statue for good luck was real.

    Happy WW from Sara @ the Mostly Wordless Wednesday H.Q.!
