Thankful Thursday

I am thankful that I have my very own real-life good luck cat!!!


Doesn't Casper look like Maneki Neko?  Those are the Japanese ceramic sculptures of a beckoning or waving cat that one often sees in the entrance to shops and businesses...the higher the paw, it is believed, the greater the luck :-)

Maneki Neko; right or left paw can be raised

Casper you sure are a good luck kitty. You look just like Maneki Neko. We have read about the Japanese good luck kitties some where. Mom is too old to remember where we saw it but it was a great article. Your human is so lucky to have you Casper. Have a great day.

Oh that is just about too cute!!
Tell Casper I'm waving back at him,

LET ME JUST SAY MOM HAS HAD A BEAR OF A TIME WITH OUR BLOG TODAY. She got lots of message about Blogger not being supported by our browser told us to change to Google Chrome which we did and now we have the upgraded blogger interface which is 200% different from what we were used to. After all of that she finally got on our blog and can read comments. The only problem is she isn't sure how she got here. MOL. At one point she thought this would be the end of blogging. Mom is not at all technical.
Hugs Madi
