When we were in China, Lance bought this golden waving cat.
I wasn't that thrilled about the cat, but he was quite proud of it.
Way back in aught five, shortly after Lance and I completed our adoption dossier, we visited San Francisco. All the shops in Chinatown had these cats waving away. We thought it was a bit creepy.
But when we got to China, there they were again, waving at shoppers. A shopkeeper in Guangzhou said they symbolized good fortune.
Lance decided we had to have one. And Rachel Shu-Ting just loves the cat.
Truthfully, after seeing her expression, how could I not love it, too?
