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.

welcome a cat into your home?

Latest Cats Looking for Fur-ever Homes

  • New

    Crystal and Davina

    Crystal is 12 years old and is the granny of 10 year old tabby Davina (Dave to her friends!) They're both lovely cats who love headbumps, strokes and cuddles - Dave does get very excited when she has a fuss and forgets to keep her claws in sometimes. They've been very much loved but, sadly, their mum has cancer and is too unwell to care for them now. They'd like to stay together and older children would be fine though probably best no other pets and they'd really enjoy a garden away from busy roads. Neutered, chipped, vaccinated plus come with 5 weeks free insurance.
  • New


    Daisy was found as a stray and was chipped so her owners came to collect her - unfortunately she'd been missing a few years and they'd since had babies which Daisy hated 🙁 Daisy is a 10 year old cat with loads of love to give. She's very friendly, cuddly and can be playful when she's in the mood. She very much looks for any lap she can snuggle up onto and seems to be very fond of people's company. Whilst Daisy doesn't like young children or other cats, she is affectionate and would make a lovely pet to someone who can give her the attention she deserves. She is litter trained! Neutered, chipped, had first vaccination plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.
  • Mila and Coco

    Mila and Coco are gorgeous Siamese sisters. They are sweet, loving, and a little bit timid.
    Coco is the braver one of the two, she’ll explore first and when it’s safe, Mila usually follows!
    Mila is the hungrier of the two! Always letting you know when breakfast or dinner is late!
    They’re both playful (they love a game of fetch with a hairband) and very loving, they’d happily sit and be loved all day long.... though neither of them like being picked up.
    Neither of them have an aggressive bone in their bodies. They're gentle cats, even when scared. Neither like noise, the Hoover, or new people, especially tiny human kittens!
    These lovely sisters just want a quiet, soothing, adult home together, where they can relax and be pampurred and fussed, and showered with affection. They love to be warm and cozy. A fluffy blanket by the radiator is their favourite place. They've always been indoor cats and will need an indoor home with plenty of space to run around (and to hide from visitors or vacuums!) They would like to be the only pampurred pets.
    Mila and Coco were 7 years old on April Fools. They are spayed and come with 5 weeks free insurance. If you're home is purrfect for them, please email bwcatrescue@hotmail.com
