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?

    Baby Brown Cat

    BBC (baby brown cat!) is a very sweet and friendly chap who loves a good chat. He's possibly a little bit posh (part Siamese) and definitely a little bit mog! He's a lovely puss who was left behind when his owners moved out. He was with another puss so hopefully ok to live with other  cats. He will need a garden in a safe location to play in. BBC is guesstimated at 4 years old. He's now neutered, chipped and had his first vaccination. He comes with five weeks free insurance. If he's just purrfect for you please visit our website and complete an adoption application!

    Snow Leopard

    This beautiful Snow Leopard Bengal boy is reluctantly being given up by his family 🙁 He's 9 years old and lives with two little humans and they all get along just fine but he's always been an only cat so needs another home with no feline competition for attention and fuss! He's a lovely natured boy and likes a wander so a garden in a safe location is a must. He's neutered, chipped, fully vaccinated,  has regular vet checks and comes with five weeks free insurance.

    Cookie

    This lovely young mum cat is Cookie. She's a very sweet girl indeed. She loves a cuddle and a fuss and can't wait to find some humans of her own to love! She's almost finished bringing up her own little family and is ready to be the centre of attention for a change😀 We don't know if she's had any experience of children do she's best in an adult home or one with older, quieter kids. She doesn't like other animals so would love  to be an only pampurred  pet.  She will need a garden in a safe location  for mooching  and sunbathing. Cookie is 2-3 years old. She will be neutered and chipped next week and comes with five weeks free insurance. If this pretty puss is purrfect for you please visit our website and complete an adoption application!

Our Longest Foster Residents

    Eva

    Eva needs a loving home ... Poor poor Eva has really been in the wars. She was a long term stray and has been left with some chronic, but not serious, health issues. She has watery eyes and noisy breathing due to previous untreated cat flu. She sounds rough at times but it's not contagious so she's safe with other cats. She has some skin problems too. All of this is managed by a visit to our vet every five weeks and BWCR would continue to cover the cost for this. Eva is a tiny little thing at just 2kgs, but she has masses of purrsonality. She's happy to snooze most of the day away but does enjoy a cozy human lap to lie on for some of the day. She's very sweet, and is especially purry when she's snuggled on a lap or when it comes to meal times! She can be a bit of a grumpy madam If there's no food or lap on offer. You've got to love a bit of character! Life is very tough for long term strays but Eva is safe now and truly deserves the purrfect home where she can be cosseted and spoiled and loved just as she is. She would need an indoor home or one with a safe enclosed garden where she could be accompanied out for a mooch, so she doesn't wander off. She would prefer not to live with younger children. She's looking forward to a quiet retirement! Eva is 10 years old and is chipped and spayed. She comes with five weeks free insurance and with BWCR vet care at our own vet for her chronic conditions. All she needs is someone to love. If that could be you, please visit our website and complete an adoption application! Are you ready to adopt a cat from Bristol & Wales Cat Rescue?

  • Black Magic1

    Magic

    ,
    Is your life missing that touch of magic? Then look no further! Magic is super friendly and affectionate with her humans but bossy with other cats so needs to be an only puss as she wants you all to herself. She's 14 so her days of tearing around the house are behind her and she's just looking for a nice warm lap to curl up on. She's a real cuddle puss and will even climb up and snuggle in your arms like a baby. She just adores all the attention and fuss you can give her, and will curl up with her humans and purr away contentedly for hours. She’s very chatty and also pretty deaf so her conversations can occasionally be quite loud – but at least that way you won’t miss any gossip . Because she's quite deaf she needs to be kept indoors. She would prefer a quiet, more settled home without young children. However we've since found she's stage I renal failure, so we're looking for a long term foster home where we would cover vet bills for any future treatment from one of our vets. Hopefully she'll go on for a few years yet! Neutered, chipped plus 5 weeks free insurance. Are you ready to adopt a cat from Bristol & Wales Cat Rescue?
