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

  • Daisy


    Daisy is an older kitten of about 5 months who is very sweet and loving but is a little overwhelmed by the other cats, dogs and children in her present home.
    As a result she’s a bit shy and not crazy about being picked up but that will soon change in a quieter home.
    She loves a fuss and snuggling in bed with you!
    Daisy would be fine with older children and other nice cats but definitely no dogs.
    She’d also like garden away from busy roads as she’s a curious teenager keen to find some mischief.
    Being spayed and chipped next week plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.

  • Li’l-Bug


    Li’l Bug is so hard to get a picture of as she wants to headbump and love you as soon as she sees you. This little sweetie is so petite with the diddiest little paws and the biggest, roundest eyes making her look permanently surprised.
    Don’t let her lull you though – this lady knows her own mind and will have a grumble if she disagrees with your poor choices – this mostly concerns getting her into a cat basket!
    Li’l Bug loves being outdoors so a garden away from busy roads is a must and she really doesn’t like other cats, not even nice ones unfortunately.
    She’d be fine with older children and is a quiet little soul, happy to amuse herself if you’re at work.
    About 1 year old, neutered, chipped, had first vaccination plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.

  • Lileth Paltrow

    This is Lileth.

    She arrived scared and wouldn’t even have a fuss or come out to say hello, in fact she’d hiss and tell me off.

    She enjoyed playing and spent a lot of time coaxing her out of her hiding place. Taking her to the vets for her op (neutering) set her back a bit..But she is now doing really well. She is a talker nags me for food, cries for me to play with her and even to give her a fuss.  She will sit between and on me in the evening, she is quite affectionatewith head bumps.

    I think she has a lot of character and has a lot more to show that I have yet to see. She still tells me off, I do listen and we get on fine, it is quite sweet she communicates. She is is very brave.

    She doesn’t seem to like other cats, I think she likes people and because she likes company would be good in a family with older kids or with someone who works from home who can give her the attention she needs.

Our Longest Foster Residents

  • Fudge

    Very friendly spayed and chipped 16 year old female. Fudge is fit and healthy and likes her food and sleep but can be grumpy and strong willed. She would most likely be OK with other quiet animals.

  • Reuben

    Very friendly but very shy 5 year old neutered and chipped male. He loves a good fuss but is easily startled so will need a quieter home and to be able settle at his own pace. He is very good with other cats and would benefit from living with a more confident cat.

  • Jess


    Beautiful little panther Jess was a failed foster but her foster dad turned out to be allergic to her sadly so has to give her up.
    She’s quite an independent puss – she loves being outside and would need a garden away from busy roads – but she also loves a fuss and a chin scratch and sleeping on your lap or snuggled by your side.
    She’s 11 but plays like a kitten and is a happy little soul. She was stressed by other pets in her previous home so needs to be an only pet.
    She is a bit shy, to begin with, and isn’t crazy about being picked up so wouldn’t suit young children, unfortunately.
    Neutered, chipped, vaccinated plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.
