* Meowth, from ''{{Pokemon}}'' is based off this, and plays with the association with financial good luck. It has a gold charm on its forehead, has been known to hold up its left paw in the traditional pose (at least in the original ''Red and Blue'' games), and is the only Pokémon who can learn Pay Day naturally - a move which gives a small amount of money (in addition to any money gained from winning) to both combatants after the fight.

In Japan, shop entrances often have statues of a cat with one paw raised. This is a type of good luck charm called ''maneki neko'', meaning something like "beckoning cat" or "welcoming cat"; in English it's often called "lucky cat". The raised paw represents a gesture meaning "over here" (specifically, the gesture involves holding a hand up, then bending the wrist and/or knuckles forward and back). It may be either the right or left paw that is raised; it's sometimes said that one paw attracts customers and the other attracts money. Often these statues also depict the cat wearing a collar with a bell and holding a golden coin with its other paw.

* In {{Tamora Pierce}}'s ''Literature/ProtectorOfTheSmall'', the Yamani have lucky cat statues with one paw raised. The legend was that their Emperor bent down to look at a waving cat just as an assassin's arrow passed overhead - thus the waving cat became a symbol of luck. Kel has a ton of them in her room and gives one as a present to Neal.
