Snow Cat

protection from everything except the sun

protection from everything except the sun

I spotted this unusual snowman while driving in Port Townsend yesterday. It reminded me of the traditional Japanese cat of good fortune, maneki neko, with both paws raised. That means the cat is supposed to be offering protection. As the snow sculpture was already melting in the sun by the time I saw it, I’m guessing this particular maneki neko is protecting us from more winter.
