Maneki Neko with Pot

6"x4" oil on canvas panel This overly happy, thus dubious cat is beckoning for us to take his pot of even more dubious food. Pot of what? Are some foodstuffs more lucky than others? And if there is curry in there, I will be pretty ticked off—this artist can't stomach curry. Anyway... All my suspicions aside, I saw this unique Maneki Neko down in Little Tokyo and had to have it. (Him or her? Don't ask me—I don't know how to check for gender on a ceramic cat and I am not sure I want to know.) Oh yeah, The Spousal Unit thought I deserved a good beating for my pun-ishing commentary in last Tuesday's post with Mr. Darwin. Needless to say, I didn't get any cookies that day.
