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?

    Fluffy

    Fluffy is a gorgeous boy who the vets think is about 6 years old. He has been super friendly from day one, although more nervous around men and youngsters so would probably best suit an adult only household or one with older children. He is very keen to venture outside so would need a garden, away from busy roads, to explore. He loves to lay around close by his humans and have cuddles whenever possible and enjoys to be groomed but is not really interested in toys or playing. He loves his food and is not fussy what he is given as long as it's not too late. If you forget (or go near his food bowl without filling it) he'll surely let you know! He seems quite interested in other dogs and cats so may fit in with other pets if they are accepting of a newbie. Neutered, chipped, vaccinated plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.

    Lula

    Meet Lula: cuddly, loving, inquisitive. She tries to help when you’re reading the paper 😉 and is always keen to know what’s behind all the doors. She’s had a bit of a rough time and worries about being left alone for longer periods and can still be a bit jumpy at sudden noises, but she is the best cuddle buddy and loves nothing more than an evening on a cosy lap. She’s playful and a big fan of a good brushing - just the sight of the brush gets her purring.  She also likes to help when you're working.
    Lula would love a safe garden away from busy roads to explore. Loves all types of wet food, trying to tell me she’s starving any time I am near her food bowl.
    She’ll make a lush companion for someone. She has a lot of love to give ❤️ Lula likes to think she's much younger than her 10 years and definitely acts it! She'd like to be the only pet in a quieter home with someone to treat her like the princess she undoubtedly is.

    Carrot

    Carrot was found dumped in a box and thankfully handed into one of our vets by a good samaritan.
    Introducing Carrot! This little ginger pocket rocket is approx 1 years old, he is a fun and playful cat who is interested in everything. He is well socialised, really loves playing chase with his toys (he is definitely a mouser!), is happy to be picked up and stroked, but sometimes forgets himself in the moment so he wouldn’t be suitable for younger children (under 10).
     He is also very comfortable sleeping on your lap or having a cwtch before bedtime. He would thrive in a busy household with older children who understand how cats play. We are unsure of how he is with dogs but appears nervous when he hears them.
    He would love a garden away from busy roads.
    Neutered, chipped, had first vaccination plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.

Our Longest Foster Residents

  • Minx

    Minx by name Minx by nature – tortie diva looking for new servants! 💜
    Sadly Minx’s owner was allergic to her and was having major asthma attacks 🙁
    She’s a sugar and spice kind of puss – happy to entertain herself and then sit by you for snuggles and a fuss but will give the dog a swipe if she thinks he’s taking liberties! She tolerates him but she loves boxes; hiding in them for ages just waiting for that chance to jump out at anyone passing - people or the dog. Seems her relationship with the poor doggo is all on her terms even down to pinching his bed at times!
    She spends a lot of time indoors when it’s cold and wet but she goes outside more when it gets warmer so would like a garden away from busy roads. She’s only small but full of tortietude!
    Minx is 8 yrs and would like a quieter adult-only home and no other pets.
    Neutered chipped, vaccinated plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.
  • Django

    Meet Django, king of his castle! Django is a beautiful cat, large, completely black and 9 years old! He has a strong personality, very driven by food, with a taste for tuna and treats!
    He loves to play hunting with his toys, and it is even better if you are the one flicking the feather. He also will spend time watching what’s happening from the windowsill or from a high cat tree.
    He loves petting on his terms and will give you a lot of head bumps, but he does not liked to be picked up.
    Since he had a dental and a painful tooth removed, he has been re-discovering the benefit of long naps on the couch between his foster humans, being pet gently and purring , purring, purring!
    With a bit of time and patience (and treats!) he will keep your side warm when you relax in bed or on the couch.
    He will stay next to you for hours though and sleep next to you if you let him. He likes the company very much and will occasionally chair online meetings 🙂
    He will let you know with a quick nibble and a flick of the paw when enough is enough but it's nothing bad - he just likes his personal space!
    He will be best suited for an adult-only or older children, no other pets house, where his humans will love him, spoil him, and let Django be Django! He will return your love! Unfortunately Django's pre-dental bloods shows that he is in very early renal failure so needs to be on a renal diet - BWCR can help fund this and his check ups at Fernlea vets - hopefully he has a lot of years left him in as it was caught so early  🙂 He needs a garden away from busy roads as he longs to roam through his new kingdom. Neutered,  chipped, vaccinated plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.
  • Biggie

    Biggie is a lovely 11 year old tabby boy, who has been a joy to foster. His previous owner recently had a baby, which has caused Biggie to have stress cystitis and his previous owner has reluctantly made the decision to rehome him to find somewhere quieter where Biggie will be happier. Biggie settled in with us very easily and was keen for strokes and affection almost immediately. He now loves to sit on a lap and will purr away while having his belly stroked. He doesn't require too much entertainment and will happily lounge around for a long time, but also has enjoyed chasing a ball or just some string. Biggie has a prrscription diet of urinary food to reduce the risk of his condition returning, and a Feliway diffuser also for stress relief, which he will have to continue with his new owner. His previous owner has also donated Biggie’s supply of food, medication, Feliway and a cat carrier he is comfortable with using. He had one episode when he first came to us - just the stress of the move and has been fine ever since. Biggie would like a quiet house away from busy roads, with a garden to explore and someone who can give him lots of love and attention. He should not live with small children or other cats, which may increase the chance of his cystitis flaring up, but he is friendly with guests and new people. Requiring only a little extra care, Biggie will make an excellent companion for anyone looking for a friendly, loving cat. We'd like Biggie to go to someone who will stay in touch with us as we will cover any vet bills relating to his cystitis at Fernlea vets in Kingswood and Hanham and also help with the cost of his food if necessary.
