Cats, like dogs, have a long and storied history in Japanese culture. Whether an ordinary house cat or a supernatural youkai spirit, cats always know how to leave an impression. The Maneki Neko (welcoming cat) is a good example of the feline's place in Japanese popular culture. Many Japanese shops display a statue of a calico cat with one paw raised in the air, which is the Japanese gesture for "Come here." This cat is believed to bring good luck to its owner. The lucky cat is usually depicted with a collar, bell, and some kind of decorative bib.
