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


    Another shy baby 💜
    Pippa is very sweet and affectionate, chirrupy and chatty, loves a fuss. Very clean, and good with the litter tray. Can hiss at first when you have to repeatedly get her out from hiding (she's good at hiding!), but she's very gentle and has never bitten or scratched. She needs a quiet adult-only home and definitely with no other pets as she's scared of her companion cat and hides mainly from him. She loves her adult foster mum but not the children especially the noisy teenager! Her previous owners said she was very homely, liked staying in and having company so she won't wander far from home.
    6 years old, neutered, chipped,  had first vaccination plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.

    Poppy dilute tortie

    Next we have a shy chonky girl 💜
    Poppy is a beautiful dilute tortie with fluffy white toes. She is very nervous and will take time to come out from under the sofa, but when she does you'll be on tummy rubbing duty 24/7!
    She is curious and social, loves to see what you're doing, and doesn't want to be left alone too long. She chats a lot, even squeaking in her sleep to check if you're nearby, and she'll roll over and purr when you talk back to her.
    Poppy doesn't like loud noise or strange people, so she would be a great companion for a quiet person or a couple with a lot of time for her. Definitely no young children please! She is very good about keeping her claws away when playing but may panic-bite if she feels overwhelmed.
    She is three years old and has never been outside but would enjoy a garden away from busy roads and definitely could do with the extra exercise! At the moment she will happily take up residence by a window and watch "cat TV".
    She is a chonky girl but otherwise in excellent health. Nothing playtime and careful feeding won't fix.
    Neutered, chipped, had first vaccination plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.

    Pretty little pocket panther 💜
    Luna is a lovely small short haired black cat with green eyes. She’s 5 years old and loves nothing more than sleeping on people’s laps in the evening or curling up on the sofa next to them. She’s also independent and very adventurous, particularly in the night. She likes to explore the surrounding neighbourhood so outside access is a must, away from busy roads.
    She is very affectionate and will show this with excessive purring when stroked. She is happy to be picked up, provided it is on her terms, which often means over the shoulder so she can see the world. She’s not too keen on belly rubs, unless you catch her in the right mood and nor is she a fan of other cats or dogs in the house so she is looking for a home without other animals ideally. She has not had much interaction with children, but has never shown much interest in them when she has met them.
    Luna is friendly and playful and loves human interaction. She particularly likes play time when a laser light is involved, which she will chase up and down the corridor and walls for as long as you are willing to entertain her.
    She sleeps a lot during the day, and loves anything warm. She can often be found curled up somewhere cosy in the house or lounging around on a radiator. She’s looking for a loving home with people who can give her affection and play with her when she’s bored. She needs to be rehomed due to a change in her owners circumstances and not being able to give her the attention and affection she deserves.
    Luna is still with her owner to save her the stress of an additional move into foster.
    Neutered, chipped, vaccinated plus comes with free 5 weeks insurance.

Our Longest Foster Residents

  • Raul and Pablo

    Meet Raul and Pablo, two lovely Bengal brothers who will just steal your heart 💜
    They are 12 years old but still have plenty of that Bengal energy 'they love to be outdoors and need a garden away from any busy roads'.
    Raul is a true loving cat, always happy to be the centre of attention and he thinks nothing is more important for you than giving him a good stroke. He will happily sit on your lap for hours purring like he is in heaven.
    Pablo is a bit more shy and independent, but will also definitely lay next to you whilst you are in the sofa, looking at you with his big green eyes in a way that will just melt your heart. He is really playful and loves chasing you around the house, playing hide and seek with his multiple toys.
    They are both perfect gentleman with impeccable manners,  incredibly well house trained, having caused absolutely no mess in the house despite it being a new environment for them. They're happy to nap throughout the day, which makes it ideal for slightly busier owners, as they are happy to be left alone if needed.
    They need to be the only pets and have never lived with children so a quieter adult-only home would suit them best.
    Neutered,  chipped,  vaccinated plus come with 5 weeks free insurance.
  • Tracy and Tulip

    Tracy is very friendly whilst Tulip is getting more confident each day. These two girls met in their foster home and now seem to have created their own little family. Tracy is about 3 and has taken Tulip who is about 7 months, under her wing. Tracy is teaching Tulip the ropes, she really does act like her mum. She grooms her and is teaching Tulip that we aren't really that scary at all and that we're not just here to feed them but have other uses too! Tulip now enjoys a cuddle and playtime and Tracey will give her a little tap if she steps out of line 😹
    They need an adult-only home but are both fine with other cats and they'd love a garden away from busy roads.
    Neuteted, chipped, vaccinated plus come with 5 weeks free insurance.

  • Bub

    Bug needs an understanding home 💜 Bug was originally adopted from the RSPCA in March 2016, they thought he was about 8 months old and had been a stray - he's a big puss with a big personality. He is a constant tail wagger, most of the time he likes a head rub, or he will jump on the kitchen table then onto your shoulder if he wants a cuddle, he's pretty agile! He does get grumpy and will scratch or bite if you give him attention when he is not up for it so you need to read the signs and he needs an adult-only home with no other pets. So far, so typical but unfortunately some things changed during lockdown which really stressed him out and made him miserable: The neighbours got 2 new kittens and a strange cat also started appearing in the garden and they all came into the house at night, stealing his food, bullying him and spraying on his territory 🙁 Then a new baby arrived and Bug started pulling his fur out with the stress of it all and hissing and spitting at himself to vent his frustration. Poor Bug just wants a quiet life like he had before, preferably with not many cats in the neighbourhood and definitely none that will steal his supper! He'd like a garden away from busy roads where he can rule the roost again. Neutered, chipped, vaccinated plus comes with 5 weeks free. Are you ready to adopt a cat from Bristol & Wales Cat Rescue?
