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

    Oreo

    Oreo is a loving chatty cat; he was owned by an overseas student who went home and couldn't take him. He is very food orientated, and let's you know when you're running late for his dinner. He likes playing with his toys and being in the same room as his foster parents, always trying to get his chin stroked. Oreo would be suited to a household who can provide him with lots of love and attention. He has a very calm, soft and patient nature. He's met older children and got along with them fine and doesn't seem to mind other cats. With his previous owner, he was happy to go on walks around the block, never far from his owner's side. A really affectionate lap cat with a big heart and vocal chords! 1 yr old, neutered, chipped, vaccinated plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.

    Bourneville

    Bournville has been living in a lady's garden since February, matted and hungry; she paper collared him but had no response and then discovered he was chipped. Despite several calls and texts his owners have never responded and it seems he may have been left behind when they moved 🙁 Onwards and upwards Mr B! "Bournville is a handsome fluff monster who loves a cuddle and is quite a chattyman. He's only 3, very playful and was friendly with the lady's own male cat so could potentially live with another cat. He's pretty chilled so children could be ok too and he'd love a garden away from busy roads." Neutered, chipped, had first vaccination plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.

    Stripey

    Any tabby lovers out there? 💜 Stripey is a handsome Tabby Bengal mix, approx 13 years old. He came into foster after his elderly owner went into hospital and has been with us for 6 months now. He was extremely anxious when he first arrived but has now become much more social and confident. He would thrive in a quiet home with perhaps an older person or couple with no children or other pets. He's used to being the centre of someone's world but he's not needy - he's quite happy to entertain himself if you're not home. He's a sweet, gentle, loving boy and adores a chin scritch - his most favourite thing. He's not a lap cat but loves to snuggle next to you on the settee or bed, just make sure you always have one hand free for those chin tickles though! Lastly, he would love a garden away from busy roads as he's used to going out. Neutered, chipped, vaccinated plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.

Our Longest Foster Residents

  • Meg & Max

    Mum Meg and son Max 💜💜 This pretty pair are more lucky cats rescued from a life on the streets. They are shy but loving, very gentle natured and enjoy a fuss but like to approach you first. They are not overly happy being picked up so will need a patient household to help them progress and so are not suitable for very young children. Max loves his Mum and they are very close with Meg regularly still washing him though she puts him in his place from time to time too - once a mum, always a mum! They would do well settled in one room to begin with and with puppy pads/newspaper around the litter tray - Max had an upset tummy when he first arrived (all sorted now) and he associates the litter tray with discomfort. His once daily poop tends to be just outside the tray now and obviously won't be an issue once they start going outside. They'd love a garden away from busy roads and they're good with other cats. Meg is 3 yrs, Max is 2yrs and they're both neutered, chipped, vaccinated plus come with 5 weeks free insurance. Are you ready to adopt a cat from Bristol & Wales Cat Rescue?

  • Sid

    Can't believe we haven't had a single enquiry for this gorgeous boy 💜
    Silly Sid is a young at heart miniature panther; previously a stray, this gentleman has become accustomed to the home comforts which humans can offer.
    Sid has had a hard life on the streets, and has had quite a few teeth removed – you’d never know, based on the way he eats his food though and the only sign is the way he does frequent tongue bleps  - he'll be a star on "Tongue out Tuesdays"!
    Although slightly older you’d never know based on the way he plays with his feather on a stick. He enjoys looking out the window and is keen to go outside again so needs a garden away from busy roads.  He would suit a quieter home (no children or other pets) and whomever takes him must be prepared to have an extra colleague if they work from home – Sid currently cries beside me unless I set him up his own work station ( ie cardboard box but he likes to feel he's helping!) next to me whilst I work.
    If you’re looking for a little shadow, silly Sid is your man!
    About 11 yrs, neutered,  chipped,  vaccinated plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.

  • Pixie

    Water baby looking for a new sink 💜 Well how do I describe Pixie - mad as a box of frogs probably covers it! . She is the one of the most beautiful cats I have ever met, about 18 months old. She loves her food but is a nibbler and tends to eat small amounts through the day. She is very friendly but also likes her own space and a sunny windowsill. She was stressed in her previous home with young children so needs a quieter home now with no other pets. She starved herself for 2 days when she first arrived but has since really come out of her shell. This cat is a true wonder of the world, she is a teenager of monumental proportions. She likes to bin dive and get on the side in the kitchen. She understands the word no but I often have to remove her from said bin and side. She has recently started playing properly. She absolutely loves the box I have got with holes in and spends ages getting the balls mice etc out and thoroughly trashes her room whilst playing. She loves a wool ball and charges all over the house, up and down the stairs etc chasing it to give it a good battering. She also loves catnip and hanging toys. She hunts through the bannisters and is an absolute devil on the stairs. - I wouldn't recommend her for those less agile! She also hunts toes, my 18 year old son is her plaything, the pair of them seem to be the same mental age, it's absolutely marvellous 🤣 She is totally unique and an absolute joy and has a particular fascination with taps and plugs. She loves to watch water coming out of the tap and then into the plughole ( it's magic you know, where does it come from and where does it go?) She is so determined that she barges into the bathroom in the morning, gets in the sink and cries for you to turn the tap on. She often puts her paw in the flow of water. She then spends a considerable amount of time examining the tap, plughole and the water, her nose goes right down the plughole. Honestly this is a new one on me but it's absolutely magic to watch. She looks at you in delight. In this house she gets a "clever girl" - we embrace the lunacy! She is a fabulous cat whose personality is really shining now she is truly settled. She is happy, friendly and fun. We will miss her but she is ready to go to a special home that will embrace her idiosyncrasies. Neutered, chipped, had first vaccination plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance. Are you ready to adopt a cat from Bristol & Wales Cat Rescue?
