The Lucky Cat, or 招财貓, is a tourist shop in Chinatown, London that served as a front for the Chinese smuggling syndicate the Black Lotus Tong.

John Watson and Sherlock Holmes visited the shop in early 2010. The woman in the shop repeatedly tried to sell them a lucky cat. Noticing a price on the bottom of an item, John discovered that the mysterious symbols related to two deaths were the ancient Chinese counting system Hangzhou.
