Am I a Lucky Cat?

Paws crossed this means no more clothes for me!

Of course I know I am a lucky cat in many ways, but I am wondering if I will have even better luck with this beautiful Lucky Cats Paper Dolls: Maneki Neko book! My human saw it when Cody and his human reviewed it on their blog, and she was so charmed by it that word got back to the author and illustrator, Maggie Swanson, and she sent us a copy!

I have seen the photos and this really looks a lot like them!

The paper dolls are based on two of Ms. Swanson’s real, live kitties! Tommie came from the woods near her house, and Gracie was a rescue cat from PAWS, where she volunteers. You may have heard of PAWS before if you read the Animal Shelter Volunteer Life blog. And guess what? Ms. Swanson also has a blog in which she features PAWS kitties! It’s called Sundays at the Shelter — do go check it out.

Awesome costumes if you are a paper cat doll!

There are 40 costumes to cut out and dress up Gracie and Tommie. They are from all over the world and some are historical. Above you can see costumes from Medieval times and from Hawaii. There are Japanese costumes, ancient Egyptian costumes, fun fishing outfits and many more! Plus, of course, Maneki Neko costumes, along with the story of the Lucky Cat. Each set explains the symbolic imagery and they are all gorgeous illustrations!

Binga offered to pose with these. Not that I asked...

Plus there are a bunch of really awesome Lucky Cat stickers!

So why do I think this Lucky Cats Paper Dolls: Maneki Neko book will make me lucky? Because maybe my human will spend her time dressing up these paper cat dolls and we kitties will get to avoid fashion faux pas, at least for a while!
