Cats need you more than you think. That’s why RSPCA NSW has given them a voice with Cat Ballads, an album of songs written to improve the lives of cats.

RSPCA NSW created this album to improve the lives of cats. So, we’ve made a version of I Need You designed to keep them calm. Watch the music video together!

Yes, really. RSPCA NSW knows you love your cat, but taking proper care of them is just as important. So, to help get the message out, we created an album of songs, sung from the perspective of cats, about three pillars of responsible cat care: desexing, microchipping and protecting your cat. You might think that sounds strange, but we think it all sounds pretty good (and we think your cat would agree).

Yes, really. We worked with a number of specialists to develop a cat-friendly soundscape and colour scheme to appeal specifically to cats, helping to keep them relaxed. It’s intended to be enjoyed together with your cat, so if they’re around, let them see and hear it. You may have to share it on social media for them, though. Oh, and if you don’t have a cat, don’t worry. It’s pretty relaxing for humans, too.


A pair of undesexed cats can lead to 20,000 offspring in just two years. Desexing prevents these unwanted pregnancies.


Only 10 per cent of cats are microchipped. That means 90 per cent of lost cats in NSW are unlikely to ever find their way back home. It’s never too late to get your cat chipped.


Only 3 per cent of lost cats are returned to their original home. 75 per cent of cats have no official owner. Protect your cat, or take responsibility for one in your area.
