Check Out What’s Happening at Lucky Cat Café

Happy New Year to all cat lovers! 

We were mostly closed the last two weeks, but we will reopen Thursday, January 2nd.


Wed.-Sat., 12:00-6:00 pm
Sunday, 12:00-5:00 pm
Closed Mon.-Tues.

Adoption Update

We have 136 adoptions to date!  It always takes longer for adult and special needs cats to be adopted than it does cute kittens. We believe it is more important to take the time to find the right home and make sure it’s a good match in the long run for the adopter AND the cat, than to rush to get cats out the door.

Please follow us on Facebook for updates and news on new kitty arrivals and adoptions!
