News from Lucky Cat Café



We follow all CDC protocols for safety.  On April 11 we opened 4 days a week, Thursday thru Sunday, due to Covid limitations. Fewer visitors are allowed inside at a time, so it is best to reserve a spot, so you are guaranteed to get in at the time you want.

Please visit our website before visiting in-purrson.  

Sip Coffee.
Pet Cats.

We have never been so HAPPY to see Spring arrive! Not only for the “beginning of the end of a pandemic” but it is also because Spring means extended time to pet and hang out with cats.

Beginning April 11, we opened a 4th day: $7 SUNDAY, Noon to 5pm. That’s $7 to spend an hour petting cats – a 42% discount off the regular entry donation. No other discounts given for Sundays – EXCEPT. . . how about free coffee?  See below. We do expect June Sundays to be busy, so we recommend reservations. Walk-ins are welcome if we have room.


Spotlight on Juniper, Ripley and Allie

Here are the cats that were recently rescued by Shamrock volunteers and are available for adoption at Lucky Cat Café:

JUNIPER – She is about 2 years old and is a Lynx Point Siamese. She is a silvery color with gray points. She and her son, Ripley, were surrendered by their owner. It takes patience for the right person to gain her trust. She has gorgeous blue eyes!

RIPLEY – Ten-month-old Ripley is a Flame Point Siamese (orange points), and his mother is Juniper. He’s a little timid right now while he’s getting used to his new environment. He and his mom were surrendered by their owner for unknown reasons. We would like to see them stay together but it’s not required.

ALLIE – A muted tortie, about 7-8 months old. She is small but has room to grow. She is still very much a playful, sweet kitten, ready to run and play with all her new friends at Lucky Cat.  One of her brothers, Ash, will join us soon. They came from an unwanted litter.


Dawne Gee Interviews Lucky Cat Café

Dawne Gee, host of WAVE3 Country, played with a kitten during an interview with Tasha, Lucky Cat Café’s board president. Tasha explained what a cat café is and how it got started. The appearance was to promote a Donation Drive, organized by Pam from the Highlands-Douglass Neighborhood. In case you missed it, here it is! Just click on



Coffee Anyone?

We are pleased to announce a new coffee partner, Ntaba Coffee Haus.  They are the ONLY coffeeshop in Kentucky that offers 100% African coffee. They even made a unique blend, just for us! LUCKY CAT PURRFECT CUP.

Ntaba’s owners regularly visit farms in 9 countries, including Tanzania, Ethiopia and Kenya. Why? To ensure top quality and bean processing are done right. Can you say YOUR coffeeshop does that? Three Ntaba locations in Louisville – Four, if you count Lucky Cat Café.

Try it out! Ask for a free cup of Ntaba with any visit in April. Give us your opinion!



If you know someone who is looking for a furry companion, please share our website with them!

Lucky Cat Café believes all cat cafés should be nonprofit, not a business where someone is profiting from cat rescue and adoption.  We appreciate your support of the ONLY nonprofit cat café in Kentucky.

Peace, Love & Meow
