Kitteh Temple

The origin of the beckoning cat
According to a brochure I picked up, the Jisho-in Temple in Tokyo is "said to be the origin of the beckoning cat from the episode that Dokan Ota lost his way in the midst of the battle but made a narrow escape from death beckoned by the black cat."
Buddha of kittehs is sleepy.

Someone even left an offering of cat food.
