In October 2021, owner Katie Phelan put the cat cafe up for sale for $60,000. Although they survived the pandemic and more establishments have been reopening, Ms Phelan thought it may be the right time to let go of the cafe.

“We’ve built this small business from the ground up with a lot of help from friends and our amazing community. Personal family issues are necessitating an interstate move for us & we’d love to find someone to pass the torch to,” Lucky Cat Cafe has stated in a social media post.

“You’ll find this business in a significant growth corridor in southeast Queensland, located close to a major arterial road with very high visibility makes it an easy find for customers. The spacious premises includes an onsite car park and council approved licences. The opportunity to extend trading hours delivers excellent future growth opportunities,” the listing for the business stated.

For the last six years, the cafe has become a go-to for cat lovers who enjoyed visiting their adorable rescue kitties whilst relaxing with a ‘catpuccino.’ In addition to food and drinks, the cafe also has merchandise for both people and pets. 

Ms Phelan has announced that they may be forced to close for good if they were not successful in finding a new owner. Fans of the unique cafe were sad to hear the cafe’s impending closure, with some even expressing interest in adopting the cats.

“Sad that you have to sell! I will be forever grateful that I was able to adopt my beautiful boy Archie a few years back from you, here he is being my office buddy at work. He is so affectionate and still loves to lick the rims of empty coffee mugs!” shared one of the cafe’s regulars.

As with the rescue cats currently living in her cafe, Ms Phelan said they will be adopted out or come with her back home.
