Adopt, don't shop, and help a cat in need!

Owning a cat is incredibly rewarding. Cats and kittens are naturally inquisitive and affectionate animals who make wonderful pets.

By adopting a cat or kitten from RSPCA, you’re giving an animal in need a second chance at a happy life with you and your family. And your new furry friend will reward you with devotion, unconditional love and joy.

As an added benefit, all cats and kittens available for adoption from RSPCA WA are desexed, vaccinated, microchipped and vet checked – helping you be a responsible pet owner right from day one.

As with all pets, a degree of responsibility is associated with cat ownership. Please weigh up the factors below carefully when making the decision to become a pet owner.


Before adopting a cat, ask yourself:

  • Am I over 18?
  • Am I in a financial position to meet the ongoing costs of caring for a cat?
  • Do I have an environment to ensure a cat is safe and secure at all times?
  • Does my current lifestyle allow me to spend quality time with a cat?
  • Am I committed to care for a cat its whole life?


What will you need for your cat?

  • Collar and ID tag
  • Water and food bowls
