Reader Question: How Do You Cut Your Snowflakes? You sometimes have questions. I know I do. When this happens and you think I might be of some service, do as Bridgitt did and shoot me an email.

Maneki Neko the Lucky Cat « 3EyedBear There are a few legends around the Maneki Neko. She (or maybe a he) supposedly saved some rich guy’s life long long ago by waving him to go away from under a tree that got hit by lightning. Also there’s a story about a beheaded cat that brought the grieving owner luck after being reincarnated into a wooden statue or appearing in a poor woman’s dream with a good business-proposal.
