What is this place?

Sip Coffee.
Pet Cats.

Lucky Cat Café is a cozy adoption center, with a small coffee shop and gift shop, located in a 100-year-old blue house. Lucky Cat partners with Shamrock Foundation, which provides many of the cats that live at Lucky Cat Café. Visitors can sip on coffee and snacks while they pet and play with cats. All cats there are adoptable! Opened in 2018.


They ask for an entry donation of $7 to $12, depending on which day you visit. Kids ages 6 and up can go with a parent. Reserve a time or walk-in. Check website for more info.

Spotlight on Shamrock’s cats

CHIPPER – Just under one year old, this sleek, friendly panther had been made to live outside. Neighbors called Shamrock for help. He was too social and sweet to be an outside cat. He gets along well with other cats. As soon as you pet him, he rolls over and shows his belly.

KANGAROO Very pretty brown tabby with gorgeous eyes, about one year old. Quiet and gentle, she has been through a lot of change but doing very well at Lucky Cat. She would do best in a quiet home with an individual or couple.

MOLLY – Both of her sisters have been adopted.  Molly is still waiting for her furever home! She is a 6-month-old tabby, a furball full of fun and growing fast.  Loves to wrestle, run and cuddle, eat and nap, then start all over again!

If you know someone who is looking for a furry friend, please share info about Lucky Cat Café. It is truly a unique and welcoming place.

Shamrock and Lucky Cat Café believe ALL cat cafés should be nonprofit, not a business where someone is making money from cat rescue and adoption.  It is the ONLY nonprofit cat café in Kentucky.
