My baby is a lucky girl

Maneki nekos are good luck

Each day when Lady G and I head to her room for naptime, we’re followed by a fluffy white shadow.

Mycatloki looks like a maneki neko – those lucky Japanese cats you see in Asians restaurants and shops. I admit we encourage this by dressing him in a red collar and bell, and we’ve even taught him to wave.

He used to consider The Bee’s room his own; before she was born he kept us company while we were painting, hanging curtains and getting the nursery ready.

Now, like a good maneki neko he curls up in a ball by the door while she sleeps, keeping watch over her, and hopefully bringing her good fortune.

    I didn’t need to get her one – she already has a fluffy one! He senses she will be a mighty dropper of treats in a few months….
