Spotlight on Shannon, Rowan and Everest

As you may know, Lucky Cat Café, works in partnership with Shamrock to help find purrmanent homes for their cats. We have been partners for about two years now.  Lucky Cat Café currently has three Shamrock kitties who are up for adoption:  Shannon, Rowan and Everest.

SHANNON – 1-year-old, solid black beauty with super soft fur. She was allowed to be outdoors (unaltered) and of course, ended up with kittens. They all found homes and now it’s Shannon’s turn. Very friendly and social. Owner surrendered her to Shamrock.

ROWAN – 4-5-month-old, solid white with 2 tiny pale gray stripes on her head. Rescued by Shamrock from the Churchill Downs area, possibly an abuse situation. Sweet shy girl, still a little skittish.

EVEREST – He is the youngest kitty at Lucky Cat and he needs a home. He is 4 months old with a pretty gray and white coat. Everest was found as a stray kitty in Shelbyville and rescued by Shamrock Foundation. He has made new friends with other kitties his age, and they’ve been romping, chasing and playing!


Lucky Cat Café is one of only few nonprofit cat cafés in the U.S.  They appreciate cat lovers who support nonprofits rather than cat cafés that are for-profit businesses. Email them if you have questions or are interested in adopting.

Peace, Love & Meow
