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

CAVI – Tuxedo girl who has an outgoing personality. Wants to be your best friend. Likes talking and wants your attention. She was living at a local bar for a while before being rescued. 1 year old.

PRECIOUS – A beautiful Bobtail Tortie. She was rescued from an over-crowded house. When petted, she bumps your hand and rolls around. Would do best in a quiet home. About 18 mos.

AMBER LEIGH – Pretty little calico. Super playful, purrs easily, likes being cuddled. Loves being picked up. About 7-8 mos. old.

BARDSTOWN – This big boy is 10 years old, very fluffy gray and white. He is an old soul. He has had a rough life and used up a few lives. Nevertheless, he is the most docile and gentle cat we have ever had. Bardstown is a healthy, affectionate lap cat that is ready for a new home.

MILLIE & MALLEY – This mom and son pair were rescued from living in a storm drain, literally. Millie is outgoing, playful and friendly. She was pretty young when she had kittens. Malley likes playtime too and looking out the window. (Millie’s 2nd kitten did not survive.) Adopt them together or separately.  Brown tabbies with lots of black fur.

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.
