Lucky Cat Café & Lounge Announces Holiday Activities

We have had many, many visitors since The Lucky Cat Café and Lounge opened in September 2018 in the Douglas Loop area. Proprietors Karla and Gail have spent months transforming “the blue house” into a wonderful haven for cat lovers to spend time with adoptable cats, and their efforts have paid off.  The adoption center area allows the cats to live in a home environment designed especially for them and provides a comfortable area for visitors to meet our cats!  They are adding to and improving their space on an ongoing basis.

Please join us for our activities in November and December.


November Calendar

Mayor Fischer Visited Us on Saturday, November 10  – “May purring and playfulness abound at Lucky Cat Café & Lounge!”  This was the ending of a proclamation given by Mayor Greg  Fischer during a recent visit.  Lucky Cat is the only cafe he has ever visited, and he was very impressed with their program.  Eight Shamrock cats currently live there while waiting for their furever  human to arrive.

Lucky Cat Café and Lounge is the only nonprofit hybrid coffee shop and cat adoption center located in the Belknap area.  Come and join us!  Just look for the “Blue House” at 2230 Dundee Road. There are two metered parking spots in front of the building, and free on-street parking just a little further down the block.


If you have a friend who has lost their cat in recent weeks or months, bring that person for “cat therapy.” Although it may be too soon to think about adopting another cat, purr therapy goes a long way toward healing a broken heart.

More than a dozen cats from Shamrock Pet Foundation and Louisville Metro Animal Services will live at The Blue House until they are adopted.  All Shamrock cats have been spayed/neutered, microchipped, and have had all their shots.
