Leggy Lucky Cat

5 May

This is cross-legged Maneki Neko was spotted in the window of a Ramen noodle restaurant on Broadway near Granville St. in Vancouver, Canada. I didn’t go in to eat, but the Lucky Cat did attract my attention (caught my eye first as I was passing by on the bus). Definately, the first Maneki Neko I’ve seen with legs.

From time to time, this blog will feature random “Lucky Cat sightings” –photos of unusual, interesting, or unexpected beckoning cats. Drop us a note in the comment section, if you have one you’d like to share. The Lucky Cat doesn’t even have to be all that unusual. Just the fact that it caught your eye and perhaps made you smile, is enough. Plus, we want to know where you sighted it.

    I see that this ramen restaurant lucky cat doesn’t have a mouth, sort of like that notorious cat, Hello Kitty. Is there a connection between maneki neko and Hello Kitty?
