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?

    Alvin

    Alvin, a super handsome tabby male, is 9 months old. He and his companion, Rico, need new homes because of a serious allergy in the family. Alvin is a lovely, lively, playful puss. He's friendly, litter-trained and sociable. He will need a garden in a safe location to play in. He will be neutered before rehoming. Ring Eileen in Aberdare on  07815056120 or visit our website and complete an adoption application if he's the puss you've been looking for!

    Sophia

    Lovely Sophia (or Sunny as she's known in her foster home) is a sweet, happy and playful little cat with bags of personality. She arrived to her foster home and settled in without a worry, in fact the first thing she wanted to do was play! She has many favourite toys and will bug you to play with her all day long or until you need to go to work! We don't think she's ever lived with children but she's not shy and would love lots of people to fuss over her and play of course. We're also not sure if she's spent time outside but has been exploring her foster garden and regularly asks to go out. Sophia would love a family home with a garden away from the main road.

    Pebbles

    ,
    Pretty little Pebbles is a lovely affectionate puss with a Velcro bottom when it comes to cozy warm laps and a contented purr that will leave you on no doubt she's happy to be there😀 Pebbles is a bit of a scaredy cat and is easily startled by sudden noises. She hides away til she's sure it's safe to investigate. She would probably be happier in a quieter adult home. She's not a big fan of other four pawed creatures so would enjoy a home as the Only Pampurred Princess. Why share the cozy laps after all! This lovely puss would love a garden in a safe location to play in.....and sunbathe once it's warmer! Pebbles is 3 years old. She is neutered, chipped, fully vaccinated and comes with five weeks free insurance. If Pebbles is your Purrfect Puss please visit our website and complete an adoption application!

    Chico

    ,
    Chico is a charming and extremely handsome 7 year old Spanish puss who came to the UK as a tiny scrap of a kitten who had been mistreated. He is absolutely adorable. A playful, affectionate chap who loves cuddles. The only thing better than a cuddle is a nice warm human lap to snooze on. Bliss!! Chico's family life has changed and there are now young children in the home, which he finds stressful. His owners have tried to make him happy, but after months of working with an animal behaviour specialist, have decided the best thing for him is to find a quieter adult home as an only pampurred puss, where he can relax and enjoy life again. This has been a difficult choice, but they want him to be a happy cat. He would love a garden in a safe location to play in. Chico is neutered, chipped, fully vaccinated and has his own passport. He comes with five weeks free insurance. He is a home from home adoption and lives in North Somerset. If he is the purrfect puss for you, please complete an adoption application!

    Holly

    Holly came in to rescue with her last remaining kitten, who has since been adopted, because her family's children developed an allergy to cats. Holly is very affectionate with people but can be bossy and dominant with other cats so would be best rehomed as an only cat. She loves food! 

    Holly is about 1-2 years and will be neutered very soon.

    If you think Holly is the purr-fect puss for you, please complete an adoption application or call Eileen in Aberdare on 07815 056120.
