This my 'study' mascot 'lucky cat' who waves to everyone from my Mac computer photo booth.
This is the cat looking backwards - the central eye is the camera.
Does anyone else use a study mascot - shades of University Challenge here - but it started with my children giving me various mascots to help with my studies. I have a dragon somewhere and have inherited lucky cat because the noise can be distracting.
Is this an american tradition?
When I first google this topic I get a lot of the controversy about using native americans images for mascots in sports teams - e.g. the 'Red Skins' and the problems from this practice.
and then a very strange example of a 'study buddy'
I end with images of other lucky cats - and think I will stop there! Good luck with your studies!
