The temple's priest was very poor, but he shared what little food he had with his pet cat, Tama. One day, a wealthy and important man was caught in a storm while hunting and he took refuge under a big tree near the temple. As a result, the wealthy man became friends with the poor priest, and the temple became prosperous. When Tama died he was buried in the Goutokuji Temple's cat cemetery with respect and love, and the Maneki Neko was made in honor of him. Maneki Neko is Japanese for "beckoning cat." Whether you believe in this kind of thing or not, he's a cute little cat with a gracious message, and he does brighten up a home or a web page! You are welcome to take a Maneki Neko for your own website with this one request: that you link it to an animal welfare site -- a shelter, a charity, a campaign page; any website that helps animals.

Houdini's Traits Houdini was small, standing a mere 5'5", with dark, wavy hair, dark gray eyes and a high-pitched voice. Houdini allowed his brother Leopold, New York's first X-ray specialist, to X-ray him frequently.
