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

  • New


    Super fluff Mario came into foster after being a stray for a while. He had had a home as he was wearing a collar and this caused him an injury but after surgery he is now fine.
    The vet thinks he is about 4 and he is a pretty chilled out boy and loves to follow you about. He is starting to take an interest in playing with toys now too so it would be nice if his new family encouraged this. He loves a fuss and being groomed but can take a swipe when he has had enough so would be best in a household with older children only. Mario has been cat tested and would be fine with another friendly cat - he just ignores them. He would love a nice garden to go out in and enjoy the sun.
    Mario is chipped, neutered and vaccinated. Comes with 5 weeks free insurance

    Honey is a lovely natured 10 yr old puss. She just loves fuss and attention but hasn't had much luck - her owner sadly died and the neighbour who's been feeding her for six years now has to go into a care home.
    She so wants her own lap again and some home comforts. She'd be fine with older children but wants to be an only puss and a garden away from busy roads would suit her just fine.
    She was as good as gold at the vets having her blood taken (the results show she's in great health) and is just a sweet little girl who will make someone very happy.
    Neutered, chipped, had first vaccination plus comes with plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.

    Pallas, Umbriel, Lo, Callisto, Phoebe and Vesta

    We recently rescued 11 cats and kittens from a multicat household and these sweet, gentle cats were amongst them.
    Due to the sheer numbers of cats (25+) they never received much individual attention but, within a week of arriving terrified with us, they love a fuss and a cuddle and turns themselves inside out for strokes.
    They'll need a little time to settle and have never been outside so a garden away from busy roads is a must; they'd appreciate being homed in pairs or with an existing nice cat for company as, unsurprisingly, they likes other cats!
    Io is about 18 months and the most confident and has had a couple of litters - the other three may well be her kittens..
    Pallas and Umbriel, the boys are 8 months and 1 yr respectively and a little shyer. Tiny Callisto is only 5 months and she just needs some time but is already enjoying chin scitches and back rubs.
    Phoebe is pretty confident and was the first looking for attention, closely followed by her sister Vesta. Both 5 months.
    All neutered,  chipped, had their first vaccinations plus come with 5 weeks free insurance.

Our Longest Foster Residents

  • 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.
  • Tia

    4 year old spayed and chipped very fluffy female who has lived outside for most of her life but has adjusted well to life indoors. Very shy but has a lovely nature. Would not suit very young children but is making good progress and is happy to be around people . Tia was part of a small group of cats and so is very good with other cats and would best be homed as a companion to a friendly domestic cat that she can learn from.

  • Spongey short for Victoria Sponge Cake

    Spongey is lovely. She can be super affectionate, she meyowls at the door to greet me when I come home from work. She jumps on me at night and cuddles in. She Sometimes wonders about with a toy mouse at about 6 in the morning, yowling her head off only to come visit me in bed, if i call her to find out what the meyowls are about, and then gives me the toy mouse as a present.She has the softest thick black fur and occasionally will roll over to reveal a white patch on her belly that looks a bit like a bikini. She likes to be near too and follows me about the house telling me all about what's been happening. She has the sweetest chirrup when I fuss her.. Ideally would like her to have a home where someone is about, she doesn't like other cats but does like people. She can get exacerbated with too much fuss, but has been a lot better the longer she's been with me and now the cat buddy she came in with has gone. They didn't like each other.
