Barcelona, a photo a day

Monthly theme day: animals

This month’s theme day is about animals. Which is fine, as it allows me to stay a bit longer on the Chinese new year celebration.
I realize that, even though I’ve seen those cats very often (even have one in my office), I don’t know their exact meaning. A luck bringer??? Anyone?

  1. it's japanese inspired i think,
    it's supposed to bring you luck,
    when its paws do that up and down thing, it's like saying.., bring me prosperity,wealth and more. ^0^ hence, it doesn't stop.

  2. Now that's a very adequate choice, mixing the animal theme with the Chinese new year – that was very clever!

  9. I think that they are for good luck but not certain. I most recently saw them in a Paris window on Rue des Petits Champs, waving their paws!

  10. Wonderful vibrant images of the Chinese New Year, as for the meaning of the cat, surely it must mean luck, or happiness maybe. Will pop back later to see if anyone else knows for sure.
