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

    Alfronso

    Stray Alfonso also got lucky and is negative for FIV and FeLV 💜 " Alfonso is a loving 4 year-old tomcat. After straying for 2 years he was finally caught and sent to the vet for the snip. Whilst he was very timid and scared in the beginning he has grown into a very affectionate cat and loves to be around people. While not a lap cat he will often cuddle up next to you and reach his paw out to hold you. He is very vocal and functions as a very good alarm clock when he wants to be fed in the morning! He would be best suited for someone who spends a fair amount of time at home as he loves attention. He is very easily scared so a home without young children would be ideal. He is curious about the outside so he would need a safe garden away from main roads." He hates other cats and will try and launch himself through the patio door at the neighbouring ginge who has the audacity to come into his garden - their hard street life is not easily forgotten by these poor boys. He is neutered, chipped, fully vaccinated and comes with 5 weeks free insurance. Are you ready to adopt a cat from Bristol & Wales Cat Rescue?

    Bruce

    One of our stray boys is looking for a new home- Bruce was one of the lucky ones who tested negative for FIV and FeLV 💜 "Bruce is a very shy guy but once he gets to know you he is super sweet. He absolutely loves to be cuddled up as close as he can to you. He is really a very undemanding cat - he sleeps, eats and hangs out with me without any fuss. He plays a little bit but more on his own terms if toys are left lying around. He is very timid and will disappear as soon as he hears anything unfamiliar. It took him a good five days to come out from behind the sofa when he first came to me. He doesn't get on with children and is not very fond of men unfortunately. He would be suited to a quiet house, with someone perhaps that spends a lot of time at home and enjoys having a cat as a knee warmer and of course, he would like some safe outdoor space away from busy roads so he can stretch his paws and feel the sun on his fur!" Bruce isn't good with other cats - he will try and dominate them and push them off their food due to his time spent on the street, so needs to be an only cat. About 5 years old, neutered, chipped, vaccinated, had a dental plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.

    Triangle and Cookie

    Two beautiful young tortie project cats 💜 "This is Cookie and Triangle, they are either sisters or Triangle is Cookie’s mum. Triangle has the triangle shape on her face. Unfortunately they have not been socialised with humans and Triangle in particular has no interest in people. Even though she has been with our fosterer in her work room for 3 months she is still terrified and keeps her distance. Cookie is a little different, she is interested in foster mum and wants to play but Triangle keeps telling her that this is a bad thing and is holding her back. Both have been neutered and vaccinated and are ready to move on. Triangle needs a feral home where she can be fed and have some shelter, she does like human comforts if not humans themselves. Foster mum is happy to keep trying with Cookie once Triangle goes but it would be lovely to know that if this doesn’t work out she could be go to where Triangle is." Or if someone was happy to just let Triangle be Triangle and not expect too much of her and work with Cookie that would be amazing. They're both litter trained and now used to living in a house - it's just those pesky hoomans they're not sure about.

Our Longest Foster Residents

  • Milo

    ,
    Meet Milo 💜
    Little Milo is a sweetheart deserving a very special home. He is gentle, playful and mischievous, always purring. He loves to lollop across furniture or share a warm bed with his human friends. You’ll find him purring away by himself on fluffy blankets. He is very energetic and, when he’s playing, he loves to bite everything - including human hands - although he’s gentle he's best with older children only.
    He wasn't happy with the other cat in his previous home - he's such a softy, he can get bullied- so he'd like to be the only pet now.
    Milo is an incredibly vocal cat and has a wide range of meows. He loves to express himself and will purr along when you sing, though he's not always in tune!
    A message from his foster human: “Beautiful Milo deserves a home where someone can spend lots of time playing with him, giving him lots of love and attention. He is a gentle and sociable cat who would love to live with human(s) who respect his boundaries (he will bite your hand gently to let you know he wants space). Anybody would be so lucky to love him, he is a funny little cat with so much energy to bring to any household!”
    18 months, neutered, chipped, vaccinated plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.
  • Lucky

    ,
    Meet Lucky, the first pedigree American Ringtail we've ever had 💜 This handsome boy, with the quirky tail, is a little mistrustful of humans unfortunately and needs an adult-only home with owners happy to give him some time to settle. He does love affection though, including the occasional belly rub, but he will let you know when he's had enough. We're not sure what's happened in his past but this shy guy is really a big softy who just needs a chance. He wants to be the only pet and would love a garden away from busy roads. To complete his rakish good looks he holds one eye half closed but our vet can find nothing wrong with it! 5yrs old in March, Lucky is neutered, chipped, vaccinated plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance
  • Kitty

    ,
    Fourth time lucky for our little panther? 💜 Skitty Kitty is currently in her third home in 14 months 🙁 If you like your cats vocal, independent, but also a bit of a lapcat, she's the one for you. She's a sleek shiny panther who loves to watch the birds through the window (she's been a housecat up to now but would love to go outside and run some of that energy off!), chase balls everywhere and destroy yoga mats. She loves to join you in the bathroom so she can drink from the tap and enjoys her treats. She spends most of her time doing her own thing but will come to you when she's ready for some enthusiastic head boops and chin scratches. It has taken her a good few weeks to come out of hiding and settle in and she needs an understanding adult-only home, without too much excitement going on, so she can feel confident in her surroundings. She needs to be the only pet and would love a garden away from busy roads. Neutered, chipped, vaccinated plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.
