As the legend goes, the story of the original lucky cat begins in a poverty stricken temple in Tokyo. One day, a feudal lord was caught in a huge storm, and took refuge under a large tree near the temple. Suddenly the man noticed a cat repeatedly beckoning him to come inside the temple gate. He followed the cat into the temple -- just as a lightning bolt struck the place where he had been standing ! Thus the cat saved his life, and the lord in turn enriched the temple and the cat. From then on, the Lucky Cat has been considered an incarnation of Kuan Yin (the Goddess of Mercy) and is a very auspicious animal to have in the home.
These adorable little lucky cats come in several colors, each one intended for a different area of the home. We are featuring the pink kittie this Valentine's Day which will bring love into your life or strengthen your love forever.
