(Creature)MANEKI NEKO

Japanese waving cat .. honestly.

A cat standing in the doorway of the Gotoku-ji temple raised her paw in the traditional Japanese beckoning gesture to a passing feudal lord. Astounded at what he had just seen he followed the cat into the temple and was even more astounded to see a bolt of lightning strike the exact spot where he had just been standing.

Such an animal became a shopkeepers dream with statues popping up all over the place from Bakers to pawn shops. A cat waving with its right paw beckons money and good fortune, a cat waving with its left paw beckons customers and good fortune. I'm not sure which paw it uses to beckon feudal lords to avoid impending lightning bolts.

They normally come in a three striped colour scheme but they're also available in sporty black which is particularly potent against stalkers.
