Visiting the cafe
We have a few basic rules here at the Lucky Cat cafe, we ask that you follow them to keep the cats healthy and happy, as well as for your safety!
Be nice to the cats! Don't pull their tails, chase them or anything else stupid. If you do, you will be asked to leave and won't be refunded.
Don't pick up the cats, they might come sit on your lap if they like you though!
Please do not feed the cats.
No flash photography.
No guests under 8 years old, sorry.
Guests must sanitise or wash their hands before entering the cat room.
Only food & drinks purchased from the Lucky Cat Cafe can be taken into the cat room, this is so we know exactly what is in them. Some foods are poisonous to cats & we don't want to risk it! Only drinks with lids are allowed upstairs.
Before interacting with the cats you will need to sign in, assuming all liability for injury or damage to person or property. A parent or guardian will need to sign for any guest under 14, and be present throughout for guests under 10.
Are the cats at the cafe available for adoption?
Our cats are permanent residents at the cafe, which means they get to be very happy & comfortable in their environment without the constant stress of new cats being introduced. Cats are very territorial & this is in their best interest, we will however have regular pop-up kitten adoption days run in partnership with a existing shelter.
Can I bring my cat from home in for a visit?
Sorry, no. This will upset our resident cats.
Cats & dogs are welcome downstairs in the cafe, but not permitted upstairs in the cat area.
Can I bring my own food & drink into the cafe?
Only birthday cakes are permitted, by prior arrangement.
Can I get a full meal at the cafe?
We aim to cater for all dietary restrictions, but only light snacks are available.
Can I apply for a job at the cafe?
We don't have any positions available at the moment, but as they arise our volunteers will be the first people considered for paid positions.
Can I volunteer at the cafe?
YOU SURE CAN! please send us an email through the form below & we will get back you asap! Please include how many hours per week & what times you're available :)
Where should i park?
We have very limited parking available on site, recommended parking is on Emperor, Carville or Brisbane streets.
Keep in mind we are in the Dutton Park traffic area, meaning even unsigned streets are limited to 2 hour parking.
Even better, catch the bus! Stop 15/16 Ipswich rd (Juliette st) is only metres from our door, and the PA interchange is only a short walk away.
