If you’re looking for a new cat or kitten, visit the RSPCA first to see if we have the perfect cat or kitten for you. At any time, the RSPCA has many different types and breeds of kittens and cats: short-haired and long-haired with a large variety of colours and personalities. Regularly check with your local RSPCA and our adoption website www.adoptapet.com.au to see if your perfect feline friend has arrived at your local RSPCA centre.

RSPCA cats and kittens are checked to ensure they are suitable for adoption and they are vaccinated, desexed and microchipped.

If you can’t find the right cat or kitten for you at the RSPCA, visit other reputable animal welfare or rescue organisations in your area.

If you can’t find the right cat or kitten for you to adopt at the RSPCA or other reputable animal welfare or rescue organisations, then the next option is to find a good breeder. Read the RSPCA Smart Kitten and Cat Buyer’s Guide (attached below) for important information about finding your new kitten or cat and general cat care.
