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

    ,
    Meet Daisy – a sweet, playful, gentle 8 month old curious kitten. Sadly Daisy was found as a stray with a broken pelvis (likely hit by a car). Following treatment, cage rest and lots of cuddles Daisy has recovered very well and is leaping all over the place! She loves lots of attention, is very playful and will get into any open draws or cupboards to investigate what's inside! We've nicknamed her squeaky as she likes to announce she has entered a room with a few squeaks!! She loves playing with toys (and wires!). I think she would be fine with children but needs to be the only kitty. She has a very sweet, affectionate personality and loves lots of company. She'd love a safe garden to investigate and play in.

    Cashew

    Lovely little Cashew is a beautiful, playful 1 year old boy. When I started fostering him he was super anxious and hid under my sofa for 3 weeks, only coming out at night to eat and use his litter tray. With a lot of time, space, patience and encouragement he gradually came out of hiding. I am so proud of him! He is still a shy boy who hides from strangers or the sound of the door bell at times! However, when he is comfortable with you, he loves to be stroked & fussed. He will sit on your lap when he is the mood, but does not like being picked up. He loves to be In the same room with a human he trusts. He enjoys playing with his toy mice and he has tons of energy! He is never aggressive. He would suit owners who will play with him and are able to give him the time and space to settle in. As a young and active cat he would really enjoy being able to explore outside, so he needs to go to a home with a safe and interesting outdoor space away from busy roads. Also, as he has been so shy and nervous it is important that he meets his new owners beforehand, if possible. Aware that this may need to be done via social distancing so I am hopeful that certain rules will ease in the coming weeks so that this can be achieved.
    Cashew came from a multicat household where he didn't get much attention but he's fine with other cats and could benefit from another friendly gentle cat to show him the ropes.
    Neutered, chipped plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.

    Misty

    ,
    Misty is a loving and affectionate 2 yr old cat who loves cuddles on the sofa. She is also playful and enjoys bouncing about with variety of toys.This little girl loves her meal times, and it's the only time you'll hear a squeak out of her!
    She would be best suited to to a quiet home as she doesn't like loud noises and too many people at a time worry her. She loves to be the centre of attention and enjoys lots of fuss but ..she's a tortie and it's only when she's in the mood 😂  She might get a little bit carried away and give a love bite or two so wouldn't be suitable for a family home or around children. Her tortietude also extends to other cats - she hates them and will run them out of town if she possibly can!
    She'd love a garden away from busy roads and hopefully not too many neighbouring cats around.
    Our little diva is neutered, chipped plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.

Our Longest Foster Residents

  • Rosie & Roxy

    ,
    Very friendly spayed & chipped 5 year old mother (Rosie – ginger/white) & 9 month old daughter (Roxy – tortie/white) who have been through a lot together recently. Rosie is quiet and loves laps and cuddles while Roxy is very lively and loves to play so Rosie is hoping for someone to help keep Roxy occupied. Would suit all ages of children as they are both very gentle natured. Rosie is a bit greedy so they need to be fed separately but both are quick eaters so this is easily managed.

  • Tabitha & Dino

    ,
    The odd couple! Dino is about 6 years and Tabitha is about 6 months and they've struck up a firm friendship and love to be together. Tabitha will headbutt Dino for fuss and he purrs his little heart out for her reassuring her that everything is ok. She cannot get enough cuddles from her human company too! Both were living outside but have definitely grown to love home comforts. They are shy initially but it doesn't take long for them to settle and enjoy lots of fuss. They couldn't cope with young children but are ok with other cats and would love a garden away from busy roads. Neutered, chipped, vaccinated plus come with 5 weeks free insurance. Tabitha has had an eye infection which may have been flu and it could flare up with the stress of moving but BWCR will cover any costs at one if our vets if it does.

  • Polly

    ,
    Petite Polly is a pint-sized feline looking for a quiet, stable home. Picked up as a stray, she’s slowly adjusting to home comforts and with a bit of patience (and bribery with treats), she has turned into a trusting, affectionate cat. She’s not a lap cat and isn’t too keen on being handled, but once she is confident she will creep out and give you a several head bump. She’s slowly finding her voice, tending to give off a quiet “brrppp” rather than a meow, but she will give a little meow when it comes to feeding time. She’s a shy little girl, and is definitely a scaredy cat! She’s scared – or indifferent- to most toys, but she likes a little play with the laser pointer. Typical tortie attitude , she will just ignore any toys or plaything if she doesn’t fancy it. She isn’t too sure on the proper way to behave, and will bat your hand or give it a nibble occasionally – this seems to be a sign of affection though. As Polly is shy, she would suit a quiet, adult only home with access to a garden. Are you ready to adopt a cat from Bristol & Wales Cat Rescue?
