Leap Day Maneki Neko!

The Maneki Neko (招き猫), the Welcoming Cat is a common Japanese sculpture, often made of ceramic, which is believed to bring good luck to the owner. Each cat has a different meaning according to colour.

Red Cat (Mavala - 156 Rococo Red) Good health
Gold Cat (Ciate - Gold Digger) Financial matters, wealth.
White Cat (Etude House - WH702) Good Fortune / Bib: More fortune
Black Cat (Etude House - WH70) Favoured in Kyoto, for good health, good matches and warding off stalkers [how precise!]  
The details were drawn by hand using acrylic paints. 

And some more good fortune
