Of cats and kids

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?

Hello to all, I love the pictures!
Thanks for sharing. It's wonderful to see the Tingster so happy and everyone else happy too.
Soon It'll be her birthday. The big "1".
See you soon,
