Finding Forever Homes for Cats in Bristol and Wales

Hello, we’re Bristol and Wales Cat Rescue, a small and friendly group of volunteers dedicated to finding loving homes for cats and kittens in need.

We rescue, foster and rehome hundreds of cats every year across the South West and Wales, cats that have been badly treated, abandoned or just unwanted. Most of our pusses have no special requirements, and are waiting to spend an afternoon purring away on a comfy sofa.

We do things a little different around here. All of cats are fostered either in our own homes or in purpose-built, warm, secure pens in our gardens. We don’t have any sterile facilities, and we don’t put cats to sleep unless it’s the only option recommended by a vet.

Nothing makes us happier than seeing a cat or kitten find their forever home, which is why we accept adoptions from families with lots of different lifestyles and locations.

Would you like to welcome a cat into your home?

    Captain

    O Captain, poor Captain

    Handsome Captain was living happily with his elderly owner but he sadly developed Alzheimers and forgot he had a cat 🙁 Luckily a neighbour notified us and Captain is now safe and enjoying a fuss. He's an older boy, probably about 15 years and very placid and sweet. He's in very early and mild renal failure so he's on a renal diet - cats can go on for years when diagnosed early so hopefully he will too. All Captain wants in life is a quiet home with a warm lap and a nice safe garden to have a mooch around. He's a lovely placid boy who loves to be stroked and he can be quite vocal when he wants his tea! Captain is neutered and comes with five weeks free insurance. If you can offer him his purrfect retirement home, please complete an adoption application! Neutered, chipped, vaccinated and 5 weeks free insurance.  Are you ready to adopt a cat from Bristol & Wales Cat Rescue? Make sure you read our Adopt page and complete our Adoption Application form.

    bonnie-and-clyde

    Bonnie & Clyde

    This super cute brother and sister are just 12 weeks old. They're an absolute delight and love to be pampurred and fussed. They lap up attention and come back for more. Both kittens are confident and very playful. They love a little adventure so will need a garden in a very safe location once they're old enough to enjoy the outdoors! Bonnie and Clyde have a lot of love to give, and can't wait to be part of a loving family. They haven't yet met any other pets, so would need to be introduced slowly if their forever home has resident pets. These gorgeous kittens come with five weeks free insurance. If they are just the kittens for you, please complete an adoption application!

  • ziggy-purrcy-3

    Ziggy & Purrcy

    We thought Ziggy and Purr-cy had found their fur-ever home, but unfortunately due to a change in circumstances they're now on the lookout once more. Ziggy (with the white nose) is the more confident of the pair and very inquisitive. Purrcy is quite cuddly and loves to purr around you when he's hungry! They love playing with toys and each other, their favourite toy is a small ball of screwed up paper - it keeps them amused for ages. They are both litter trained and clean but they do like to play in the tray sometimes! The kittens are now 14 weeks old. As they've had quite a chaotic start to life this gorgeous pair is now looking for a quiet home with no young children or other pets, ready to de-stress before Christmas. Ziggy & Purrcy are fully vaccinated, and were wormed and deflead last month. Are you ready to adopt from Bristol & Wales Cat Rescue?

    Mama & Peanut

    Black beauties Peanut and Mama are the biggest bundle of play and fun just waiting for a fun home to call their own. Coming from a multi cat household, Mama arrived with Peanut nervous about her new surroundings. Peanut bounced into the first lap she could find and Mama slowly decided her foster home was a good place to hang out. Mama is now a happy, playful and sweet girl who will greet you at the door when you come home and sit quietly next to you in the evening. Peanut is super playful and still learning to use soft paws at all times when playing. She's almost there now, and oh so cute! Both of these lovely cats have lots of energy and would like a home where they can play with toys and lots of interaction. They would love a garden away from the main road and in a home with older children. Mama is a year old, and Peanut just six months. They are spayed, chipped, fully vaccinated and come with five weeks free insurance. Are you ready to adopt a cat from Bristol & Wales Cat Rescue?

    Grace

    Grace is a stunningly pretty puss whose photo doesn't do her justice. Her dilute tortie coat and amber eyes are just gorgeous. She's a friendly puss too, with a very sweet nature. Grace is about 12 years young - she's still active and playful and enjoys a wander outside so needs a safe location. She is just as likely to enjoy a long snooze on the sofa though! A purrfect companion for a night watching TV, she loves the nature programmes but will usually let you choose. Grace is a gentle friendly little soul looking for a quieter retirement home, she wouldn't be able to cope with little humans unfortunately, and best as an only pampered puss. Grace is neutered and chipped, and as will all of our foster felines she comes 5 weeks free insurance. Are you ready to adopt a cat from Bristol & Wales Cat Rescue?

    Poor Squeak thought he'd found his forever home, but a change in his owners circumstances means he is on the market for a new family! Squeak is an affectionate boy who loves a good fuss.
