The maneki-neko (meaning "beckoning cat") is a common Japanese figurine believed to bring good luck to the owner. Also known as the welcoming cat, lucky cat, money cat, happy cat, or fortune cat. A common belief is that the left paw raised brings in customers, while a right paw brings good luck. Another interpretation says that a raised left paw attracts money, while a raised right paw protects it.
It is commonly believed the higher the raised paw, the greater the luck. Consequently, over the years maneki-neko's paw has tended to appear ever higher. Another common belief is that the higher the paw, the greater the distance good fortune will come from.
Maneki-neko usually have some sort of decoration around their neck. This can be a neckerchief or a scarf but the most common attire is a collar, bell and decorative bib. These items are most likely in imitation of what was common attire for cats in wealthy households. Red collars made from a red flower, the hichirimen, were popular and small bells were attached for decoration and to keep track of the cat's whereabouts
