Fortune Cat Meaning
The Fortune Cat Tattoo is known as Maneki-Neko in Japanese, which translated means “beckoning cat.” The cat has its right paw raised as if it’s waving in good fortune for its owners. The cat is supposed to symbolize good fortune for its owner.
Meowth from pokemon is based upon the fortune cat. Unlike traditional Maneki-neko who hold the Koban coin, Meowth has the coin projected from its forehead. Meowth can fire this coin as a projectile weapon with its signature move Payday.
