Fun Facts!

Surely you have seen in some souvenir store or home decoration that funny golden cat that does not stop moving his paw up and down. Lovely, isn't he? And if I told you that this funny cat is not only a beautiful decorative figure that attracts the attention of everyone who looks at it but much more? Yes, as you can hear, this cat is a millenary statue of the Chinese culture and its name is Maneki Neko.

As you can see, appearances are deceptive and what seems to be a simple decoration is actually a historical monument of one of the most ancient cultures of human civilization. The golden cat of Instagram and Facebook memes has a great story behind it that is worth discovering. Would you like to know more about it? Here are five interesting facts that surely nobody knows.

5 Interesting facts about the Chinese lucky cat

  • Maneki Neko means "The signalling cat"

The name of this cat is not put at random, since in Chinese it literally means "The signalling cat", referring to the arm movement that the cat makes without stopping. According to the legend, these cats used to stand at the doors of the houses moving their arm without stopping so that luck would see them and enter the house and fill it with fortune and happiness.

  • The legend of the cat

Behind this beautiful figure hides a beautiful legend that goes back to the Edo period, explaining that the first time this cat used its powers was to guide a lost and dying traveller who was passing through the door of a temple in the Edo region.

The cat waved the traveller's arm to enter the temple and spend the night there, which the traveller did and went inside the temple to take shelter from the cold of the night. Shortly after the traveller entered the temple, a great electrical storm broke out, devastating the town and killing many people. The traveller felt that the cat had guided him to save him from the coming storm, so he decided to thank it by buying the temple later and making it the refuge of his whole family.

In time, the temple became known as Gotokuji Temple in honour of the first family that inhabited it and the legend of the lucky cat began to grow and attract millions of tourists that passed through the area. And so, since then, the cat that signs is also the lucky cat.

  • Gotokuji temple is the place with the largest number of Maneki Neko in the world

As we explained in the previous point, Gotokuji temple was the place where the fame of Maneki Neko cat began to grow, so it is not surprising that this same place has become a tourist attraction where people pose with thousands of cats of all styles and colours. It is a place full of charm where people go to have their picture taken next to the famous cat while getting to know its history and that of the temple better. 

  • Each colour of Maneki Neko has a different meaning

There is a wide variety of Maneki Neko models and colours to choose from and according to tradition each colour has its own meaning:

  • Tricolour

The tricolour cat is the most common and symbolizes luck because it is inspired by the Japanese short-tailed cat

  • White

The white cat has the power to bring health and purity to those who possess it.

  • Golden

It is said that the golden Maneki Neko attracts good health

  • Red

A red Maneki Neko has the mission of avoiding diseases, especially for children

  • Pink

The pink cat is usually kept by single women at home, as they say it will help you find true love

  • Green

The green Maneki Neko is useful for those who are studying, so it is common to see them wearing it during the college exam season.

  • Black

The black cat has the power to keep at bay the evil spirits and the demon of the home in which it is. 

  • Japan has dedicated a holiday to the lucky cat

September 29th is a national holiday in Japan in honour of these lovely figurines and the luck they attract. It is a day of fun and family where we can see Maneki Neko of all kinds in all the parks of the country.
