The entire world has seen the video of the cat who was apparently snoozing inside the wing of a small plane, and then woke up to discover he/she was in fact airborne.
However, that’s not the ONLY animuhl who’s recently flown the friendly skies.

Little Luhu lives in Beijing with her siblings Barher and Bardie. Luhu is the only one with the sad look- so she’ll get all the licensing dollars.
There’s nothing wrong at all with Luhu- the droopy eyelids give her that distinctive look. Move over, BUB, Maru and Tardar Sauce- there’s a NEW Internet Cat in town.
(In classic Scottish brogue:) “Forget Nessie. It’s OUT THERE. I SAW it. It….bounded from place to place. It’d come up for air once in awhile, then back down it’d go. Oh, it’s horrible I tell ya. Whatever are we gonna dooooooo?”

Fairly safe in making that claim without bothering to do a search. What IS a Maneki Neco, you ask? Oh Great Wikipedia, bestow upon us your wisdom.
The maneki-neko (Japanese: 招き猫?, literally “beckoning cat“) is a common Japanese figurine (lucky charm, talisman) which is often believed to bring good luck to the owner. In modern times, they are usually made of ceramic or plastic. The figurine depicts a cat (traditionally a calico Japanese Bobtail) beckoning with an upright paw, and is usually displayed—often at the entrance—of shops, restaurants, pachinko parlors, and other businesses. Some of the sculptures are electric or battery-powered and have a slow-moving paw beckoning. The maneki-neko is sometimes also called the welcoming cat, lucky cat, money cat, happy cat, beckoning cat, or fortune cat in English.
And why are we covering this Big J turf, you ask? All because of an email from Gerry D. “Here is my new Maneki Neco,” the email begins. “John, the King of Neuroradiology and Ann, the Power Behind the Throne, brought it back from Japan.”
“Like a cat, I find the box more fun than the gift. Also—a battery was enclosed?”

“My dear boyfriend met this nosy fella sniffing the streets of Didam in the Netherlands. We think the boopability of the nosicle and the definitely pouchy muzzle are definitely C.O.-worthy. Wouldn’t you agree? Love, Doomchild.”
