New owner's guide: cat

Download as booklet

Congratulations and thank you for adopting your new cat from the RSPCA.

RSPCA cats make great companions and we hope that you both have a happy life together. This guide will provide tips and suggestions to support you and your new cat during the ‘settling in’ period

Keep all your cat documents in a safe location

When you adopted your cat, you should have received certificates for vaccinations, microchipping and desexing. Where required, information may have also been provided relating to surgical aftercare.

These are important documents and should be stored in a safe location as part of your cat’s health record. This information is required for the future care of your cat by your veterinarian and to obtain concessional registration available from your local council.

Did you know that RSPCA adoptions receive no government funding?

As a not-for-profit organisation, the RSPCA relies on the generous Victorian community to help us care for 'all creatures great and small'.
