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.

Latest Cats Looking for Fur-ever Homes

    Mimi

    Mimi arrived as a terrified feral kitten but has come on in leaps and bounds with her fostermum and her friendly cats. She still runs for cover at loud no uses so wouldn't cope with young children. She tolerates dogs and loves to sit next to you for a fuss but most of all she loves to play and must have a feline friend in her new home to boost her confidence and chase her around 🙂 Mimi would also like a garden away from busy roads. Fully 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.

    Oliver

    Oliver Twist has had a tough start in life. Living as a stray he found a friendly human for some regular meals and cuddles, but unfortunately started to upset her two cats and so needed to find a new home. When he first arrived at his foster home he was very wary and unsure. He wasn't used to being underfoot and any sudden moves would send him running for cover! He spent a lot of time hiding in his room and under the sofas, needing Dreamies to be coaxed out. Despite a lot of hissing he welcomed strokes and was extremely gentle and tame to handle. Two weeks later and Oliver is now confident in his new surroundings and has really come out of himself. He is extremely playful and a very inquisitive little cat, happy to follow his foster mum round the flat and jumping up for strokes and attention. He is very vocal and desperate to go outside, as he was used to coming and going whenever he pleased. He spends a lot of time gazing out of the window wishing he was allowed out to explore. Oliver would probably be best suited as an only cat, and in a home where someone has the patience to give him the time to adjust to new surroundings. Given his start in life we think it likely he will roam and so will need a garden in a safe location. He is neutered and vaccinated, and the vets have aged him between 5 and 6.

    Eva

    Eva Small (2kg) spayed and chipped 10 year old female. Suffers from chronic but not serious health issues which are being managed by a visit once every 6 months to a Bristol vet, and this cost would continue to be covered. Happy to sleep most of the time but very purry at food time and would love a lap for some part of the day. Would need to be either an indoor cat or with accompanied outside access so that she does not wander off. Are you ready to adopt a cat from Bristol & Wales Cat Rescue?
