Spotlight on Shamrock’s Cats


He is our big ginger boy with a big, easy-going personality to match. Strawberry lived with a caring couple for two years but sadly had to be surrendered due to allergies. He is 2 years old.


Fiona was rescued with 4 tiny kittens, living in an abandoned car near Churchill Downs. She has amazing coloring that is mostly white with orange spots. She’s still adjusting to changes so she’s a bit timid temporarily but is slowly opening up to guests. About 1 year old.


This sweet girl was rescued from a “free cats” ad. She had kittens at the time, but they were adopted. Now it is Endora’s turn. Her coat is a beautiful brown swirly color and so soft – and must be touched to be believed. Two years old.


Pixie is a young mom (only one year old) to Padgett. She is a brown/gray tabby who is friendly and sweet. She was rescued from a terrible hoarding situation and happy to be around a dozen friends instead of 4x that number.


Padgett is Pixie’s daughter and 5 months old. Like her mom, she is a brown/gray tabby. Padgett is super friendly and loving. She loves scratches behind her ears. Rescued from a hoarding situation and happy to be around a smaller number of friendly cats.

Peace, Love & Meow

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.
