These ceramic cats were originally used in storefronts to welcome customers. Indeed, the name "Maneki-Neko" means "inviting cat" and the raised paw is a welcoming gesture. They have gradually become symbols of success and good luck and are now also found in homes. It is generally said that the raised left paw attracts customers. If the cat raises its right paw, it will bring luck and fortune. If the cat raises both paws or if its paw is raised very high, this reinforces its beneficial power. The color of the cat also has a meaning: white for purity, golden to attract wealth, black to ward off evil spirits.
