Nozoki cats?

Don't think they got an invite in store. Maybe they see something they want to buy

Looks like these cats in Kyoto are trying to get a peek inside the store. I wonder what they can see?

Taking in a view of the whole shop. If you are looking for cat products this store has it!

Those 2 wouldn't stand a chance at my house. I have 2 Blue Healers, Lucy and Molly, and their barking alone would scare them away! lol Again as usual have fun,stay dry and am looking forward to moe Awesome photos:D

I thought one of the eyes was supposed to be blank until your good luck came in then you would paint it in. Is this the same thing? Why are the eyes painted in?

It is normally the eye of the daruma that is painted. you paint one eye when you make the wish and fill the other one in if it comes true. Particularly used for politicians and also businessmen.

the cat with the raised paw is typically used to draw customers into a store.
