For just a little over 1000 ISK, you can buy a plastic statuette (in gold or silver) of a cat that waves. But there’s more to it than that – it comes with little red flags, upon which you write a wish and then attach it to the cat’s waving paw. Available at the newly-opened Mai Thai, an Asian gift and grocery store next to Hlemmur. (Mai Thai, Laugavegur 116, 581 1440.)
