Cultural note from the author:

In Japan, people believe that a beckoning cat, typically a Japanese bobtail, brings good luck to its owner. These ornaments are called “maneki neko.” It is common to see a cat figure washing its face displayed in many shops/restaurants/parlors and other businesses. The cat in this story, Chibi, was born in Brisbane and adopted into an English and Japanese bilingual home. He understands commands and affections in both languages and spends a lot of his time sleeping. The story represents a typical day for Chibi.
