I'm a cat lover. My big orange cat, Cosmo, is a sweetheart. He keeps me company all day while I work (if you count someone that's asleep as company). Cosmo was a shelter kitty, he was given up two times before we adopted him six years ago and as you can imagine, it took him a while to get comfortable in our home. He's a happy cat now and absolutely loves attention. Really the best pet I could ever imagine having. I love this little furry guy with all my heart.
Naturally, when thinking up new designs for a sweetgum™ cloth a kitty came to mind. The Japanese Lucky Kitty is called a Maneki-neko. You've seen these cats with the waving paws. So cute, right!
A red piggy bank Maneki-neko sits on my desk right next to my computer. He makes me smile each time I look over at him. (It's the little things that make us happy.)
This Lucky Kitty dishcloth design is a New England version of the Maneki-neko, holding a cod instead of a carp.
The back of each kitty dishcloth has color suggestions: red for good health, gold/yellow for good fortune, black for good luck, white for happiness, blue for academic fortune and pink for Love XXOO
