Owning a cat is a great experience as they are excellent companions. Cats have specific needs and require lots of care and affection from their people. Before you adopt a cat, please ensure that you have thought carefully about what cat ownership entails and whether you can meet a cat's physical and mental needs.
By visiting the RSPCA, you can see all the cats and kittens that we have available for adoption. Our staff will be able to offer advice on the particular cat that you have chosen. It is important to note any recommendations that staff make in regard to a particular cat's suitability to different home environments, such as those with small children and/or other resident cats. Above all else, our interest is in the welfare of the cat and making sure that they find a loving home.
An RSPCA shelter is a fantastic place to start your search. You will find animals available for adoption who are medically and behaviourally sound; most are perfectly healthy and sociable, and are simply waiting for a new home and a loving family. Please think about your next family member coming from the RSPCA.

It is important to remember that cats require lots of care and affection from their people.
The RSPCA recommends that owned cats should be kept safe and happy at home, ideally all of the time to protect them from the dangers of roaming.

Like any member of your family, your pet can unfortunately and unexpectedly become ill or suffer an accident. Even expenses for annual routine care like vaccinations, teeth cleaning and flea, tick and worm control can come as quite a shock.
Imagine knowing your pet can be treated, but that it will cost hundreds or thousands of dollars. With RSPCA Pet Insurance we may be able to assist with the cost of the very best veterinary treatment, which your pet deserves.
