Japanese Lucky Cat "Maneki Neko" Porcelain Mug For Tea, Coffee and Cocoa

luckykittymug.jpg

Increase your good fortune with this Japanese Lucky Cat Mugicon. Warm up with a hot drink after a walk outdoors with your pet. The mug comes with a handy dual-purpose lid for steeping tea and or as a spoon-rest.

This sweet Japanese Lucky Cat, or Maneki Neko, is a popular symbol for good fortune in Japan and is displayed in the entrances of many local shops, restaurants and other businesses to beckon visitors in and bring them good luck.

According to the 17th century legend, the cat belonged to the poverty-stricken priest of a rundown temple in Tokyo. One day during a storm, a wealthy man of high stature was passing by the temple. He took shelter under a tree and looked up to see the cat beckoning him into the temple. He left the tree to follow the cat, and the tree was immediately struck by lightning. In gratitude the man befriended the priest and helped renovate the temple.

Many of us panic in a crisis, and our pets are no exception. The ultimate outcome is determined by how people handle their fear. Preparation is key.

The new Pet Evacuation Jacket can help you keep your pet under control in the event of a flash flood, fire, earthquake, hurricane, tornado or other emergencies.

The Jacket is made from the same flame-retardant material used by Japanese firefighters and protects your pet from the heat. Transport your pet with the carrying handle and use the pockets on the side of the jacket for any gadgets and supplies you and your pet will need.

dogcatumbrella.gif

Here at Super Cool Pets our goal is to feature products and news that will enhance and improve the lives of the animals who live with us. The sad, bad news is that there are products sold out there that may easily be toxic to our pets and ourselves, unbeknownst to any of us.

The good folks over at HealthyStuff.org tested over 400 pet products, including beds, chew toys, stuffed toys, collars, leashes, and tennis balls. They are finding elevated levels of lead, mercury, arsenic and other chemicals that can be hazardous to human health, especially for pets and children.

The HealthyStuff.org site has an interactive database listing the products by brand, type, or level of concern with a product search as well. You can request new products to be tested. Their product database can also be accessed using the Flash Widget, SMS Texting, and a mobile application.

The site is not just about pet products. You can review 15,000 test results on over 5,000 other common items including children's products, cars, apparel and accessories, back-to-school products and more.
