The “Lucky Cat” name was inspired by a gold lucky cat statue in the office where I used to work. A mascot that started out as a silly gift passed around at employee Christmas parties. When it landed in the office, my co-workers and I quickly realized that it made people smile… it’s fun and unexpected! People, especially kids, loved to see the little gold cat waving in the window.
Historically, it’s known as maneki-neko or a Japanese “beckoning cat”, a lucky charm believed to bring good luck to whoever owns it. The most common lucky cat colors are white, followed by black, and then gold. A white lucky cat is said to bring happiness, purity, and positive energy. The luckiest of all is the calico, a black cat is meant to lure away evil spirits, and a gold cat is for money or good fortune.
