It can either be used as a decorative item or be carried around in a bag. It’s possible to snap the cat’s paws together so that it looks like it’s praying with you. It can hold amulets up to five centimeters wide to eight centimeters long. There are six colors available, including gray, black, and light-brown. Each one costs 1,700 yen.
