These keys can be copied at many hardware stores such as Ace Hardware, Home Depot, or any locksmith company. If you have lost your key and have no spare to copy the key from, you can get the key code which is stamped on the ignition lock or you can just take the door or trunk lock to a locksmith store and they can make you a key from that.

Cadillac VATs keys lost
Cadillac Deville in the years 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, and 1999 have a VAT key system installed. If you have lost the key or just need a copy you will have to call a locksmith company. Besides cutting the key, the locksmith will need to find which VAT key number you have. It can be anywhere between 1-16 VAT key numbers. Even when the keys look the same, the VAT number on the key can be different.
Cadillac chip key

Cadillac Deville in the years 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, and 2005 have a transponder key. The transponder key has a hidden chip inside the key head which has a wireless connection with your car’s immobilizer. Besides cutting this key, it will need to be programmed to the car. If you have a transponder key already cut and you are trying to start the car but it will not start, even when the engine is cranking, most likely the chip inside the key is not programmed or has just gone bad. A locksmith company or Cadillac dealership can program the key for you.
