Victorians  know that cats make great mates. 

There are more cats in Victorian homes than any other state of Australia, two million in fact. As a cat loving community, we know the benefits of owning a cat.

Even though plenty of us know the joy of cats, there are many people yet to discover how these creatures, each with a unique personality, can bring happiness to humans.

  • Adaptable, cats fit into almost any lifestyle. 
  • Perfect for apartments, cats will happily sprawl in almost any spot in your home.
  • Children who have cats as a part of their family learn responsibility and experience empathy, assisting them with their development. 
  • At less than $2.00 a day*, including healthcare, food and accessories, they are an affordable friend. 
  • The purr of a cat has a calming effect on humans, making them great for our health.

Throughout 2015, the RSPCA showcased why cats are such great companions, encouraging those considering taking on a new mate, to make it an adult cat. 

Adopt a cat and see for yourself how cats make great mates!
