Maneki-Neko: Inside the game, the Lucky Cat file is referred to as Maneki-neko which is Japanese for "beckoning cat". Today, these ceramic figurines are believed to bring good luck and fortune to the lucky owner. Other nicknames include: welcoming cat, lucky cat, money cat, happy cat and fortune cat. From wikipedia: "It is commonly believed the higher the raised paw, the greater the luck. Consequently, over the years maneki-neko's paw has tended to appear ever higher. Some use the paw height as a crude method of gauging the relative age of a figure. Another common belief is that the higher the paw, the greater the distance good fortune will come from." Maneki-neko are often depicted holding a gold coin called a koban used during the Edo period in Japan. 

Here are two actual Japanese Lucky cats from the Wikipedia article.

Collar, Bib and Bell, from Wikipedia

"Maneki-neko usually have some sort of decoration around their neck. This can be a neckerchief or a scarf but the most common attire is a collar, bell and decorative bib. These items are most likely in imitation of what was common attire for cats in wealthy households during the Edo period. Red collars made from a red flower, the hichirimen, were popular and small bells were attached for decoration and to keep track of the cat's whereabouts. The bib, may be similar to that also seen adorning the Buddhist divinity called Jizō Bosatsu."
