We're out of kittens!

Most litters arrive when the weather gets warmer, around mid-April. If you're keen on welcoming a kitten to your kin, it's best to complete an adoption application and join our kitten waiting list.

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?

Latest Cats Looking for Fur-ever Homes

  • Elvis-wales-14-03-17

    Elvis & Charlie

    ,
    These British Short Hair brothers are 5 years old and very handsome. They've lived with an elderly owner all their lives and she can no longer care for them sadly. They're very sweet natured and loving but they are startled by strangers ( as wide-eyed Charlie is demonstrating before running for cover 😂) and will hide until they've decided you're ok so will need a quieter home with no young children unfortunately. They need to stay together and do like to go outdoors so need a garden in a safe location. They're neutered and currently with Eileen in Aberdare so if these gorgeous boys are just what you're looking for give her a ring on 07815056120.

  • Ozzy1

    Ozzy

    Ozzy purring up a storm! This gorgeous, super friendly boy loves a fuss as you can see 🙂 We rehomed him two years ago but, sadly, his owner is now too unwell to care for him. He's lovely - quite vocal especially when he wants something and happy to be stroked and fussed any time. He'd be fine with older children but he'd prefer to be an only puss and he'll demand all your attention anyway. Ozzy is 10 years old, neutered, chipped, had first vaccination plus comes with five weeks free insurance. Are you ready to adopt a cat from Bristol & Wales Cat Rescue?

  • Black Magic1

    Magic

    ,
    Is your life missing that touch of magic? Then look no further! Magic is super friendly and affectionate with her humans but bossy with other cats so needs to be an only puss as she wants you all to herself. She's 14 and was thin when she arrived and it turned out she was hyperthyroid but after tablets to stabilise her she's had her thyroid removed and is now absolutely fine 🙂 She's very chatty and also pretty deaf so her conversations are quite loud - but at least that way you won't miss any gossip 🙂 Magic needs to be an indoor cat and would make a great little companion following you around and telling you how to do stuff 😂 Neutered, chipped plus 5 weeks free insurance.

    Reuben

    Darling Reuben is a sweet and friendly cat. He loves a good fuss, but is easily startled, so will need a quieter home, with staff who will help him settle at his own pace. He will reward them with head bumps and cuddles! He would love a garden in a safe location to play in. Reuben is 3 years old. He is neutered and chipped, and comes with five weeks free insurance.

    Freya

    FREYA is a fiery tortoiseshell, young, lively and temperamental, a typical tortie! Sometimes butter wouldn't melt in her mouth and sometimes she's crotchety and quarrelsome!

    Freya would suit a home with no children, a home where she's the only cat and a home with someone who can love Freya for her edgy quirkiness. When she's nice she's very, very nice.........!

    Beef & Betty-07-02-17

    Beef & Betty

    Beef and Betty are best buddies. They love each other very much. Beef is 12 and Betty is 7. They're both sweet, affectionate and gentle cats, who enjoy nothing more than a lap to nap on! Beef is a terrible flirt. He loves to hang out on the wall outside, asking passers by for strokes. He's such a charmer, he's rarely refused😀 They both love to be out and about, so will need a garden in a safe location to mooch in. While Beef is tolerant of little ones, Betty will hide away, so a home without young children would be best, so they can both chill out and adore their grown up staff. They are neutered and come with five weeks free insurance. Beef and Betty are such lovely cats. If they seem just purrfect for you, please visit our website and complete an adoption application!
