Surely most of us have seen a ‘fortune cat’ in many Asian household or businesses at least once in our lives. You know, the little kitty cat that waves its paw at you?
These fortune cats are also known as “Zhao Cai Mao” in Chinese, or “Maneki Neko” in Japanese. They are believed to bring in good luck, money, fortune, business and positive vibes for their owners.
With the devastating year that most of us had last year, maybe a much buffer and muscular fortune cat is what we need to bring in all the ‘extra’ luck this new year!
It looks like a cat on steroids!
If you are planning on getting your own fortune cat, here are facts that you should know about.
Extra Strength Means Extra Luck!
According to Catster, when a fortune cat raises its right paw, it is believed that it will attract good fortune and money. And if it raises its left paw, this would supposedly attract more customers!
So, with its much bigger and stronger arm, this means extra huat this year, no?
Every Colour Has A Meaning
Fortune cats come in many various colours that you can choose from. Each colour signifies a different feng shui.
Based on Feng Shui Beginner‘s guide, here is the list of colours and its meaning:
- Calico: Traditional colour combination, considered to be the luckiest
- White: Happiness, purity and positive things to come
- Gold: Wealth and prosperity
- Black: Wards off evil spirits

- Green: Good health
Where Can I Get My Own Fortune Cat?
Of course, in this day and age, almost everything can be purchased online. Yes, even fortune cats!
Think about your priorities and pick your colours wisely. Let’s hope this year would be a much better year for all of us.
