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

  • New

    Michael

    Michael is a bit of a bruiser 😬 This huge hunk of ginger awesomeness doesn't do sharing and will run any competition out of town - no-one is allowed on his turf! Which is a bit of a problem as there are lots of cats where he lives so he always getting into fights. He's a lovely, affectionate boy with his humans though 🙂 Michael is 10 yrs old and looking for a new home without too many other felines around, no young children and a garden away from busy roads. Neutered, chipped, vaccinated plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.
  • Scampi

    ,
    Scampi came in to foster when his mum was moving to residential accommodation where she couldn't take him. Scampi is a cat who has been used to living in a flat with access to the outside. He is 13 yrs old a lovely friendly boy. He is microchipped, neutered and fully up to date with his vaccinations flea and worm treatment. Although always having been a single cat he doesnt seem to mind his foster mum's furry family. He's not got a mean bone in his body. He's also a chatty cat, loves his food. He would like a garden in a safe location he can explore on sunny days with the option of a lap or a sofa when hes indoors. He has always been used to being in at night.

  • Hamish

    ,
    Hamish is a big boy at over 5 kilograms and there for a joy to pick up & cuddle. He does love his food! Hamish lived next door but spent months being beaten up as a kitten by my mature female until he got bigger than her! Now he is just about tolerated by Cocoa. Hamish is also a tease, enjoying baiting my other blind cat into chasing him. Hamish is not a fighting cat. Unfortunately recently a new all black male cat has arrived in our street and is terrorising dear Hammy. Hammy has to be confined to one room all day during bad weather which is making him rather sad. Hammy is dying to be a bigger part of a family. He would love to have the freedom to come in & out from the garden, sleep on your bed against your legs & be played with. Watching & hearing Hamish thump about the house & play in a rather clumsy heavy way is delightful. But don't worry he doesn't break things!

Our Longest Foster Residents

  • Reuben

    Very friendly but very shy 5 year old neutered and chipped male. He loves a good fuss but is easily startled so will need a quieter home and to be able settle at his own pace. He is very good with other cats and would benefit from living with a more confident cat.
  • Arlo & Gus

    Cat name: Arlo & Gus Cat age: 2 (Arlo) & 1 (Gus) Cat colour: Tabby/white & black/white Cat breed: DSH Location: Bristol Good with children? Older children only (10+) Good with cats? No Good with dogs? No Need outside space? Yes Chipped? Yes Vaccination status: None Neutered? Yes The biography: Neutered and chipped 2 year old father Arlo (tabby & white) & 1 year old son Gus (black & white). Arlo is confident and loves fuss while Gus is quite shy but making good progress. Both have lovely natures but would not suit young children as Arlo especially is excitable and likes to nip occasionally. They love their food but are greedy at the moment so mealtimes and food availability need to be carefully managed but both are making progress. They have lived with another cat but are best as a pair on their own. Are you ready to adopt a cat from Bristol & Wales Cat Rescue?

  • Eva

    Small (2kg) spayed and chipped 11 year old female. Suffers from chronic but not serious health issues and so needs to be an indoor cat. Her health issues are being managed by a visit once every 6 months to a Bristol vet and this cost would continue to be covered. Happy to sleep most of the time but very purry at food time. Does sometimes enjoy laps but mostly happy to be left alone and could live with other cats. Are you ready to adopt a cat from Bristol & Wales Cat Rescue?
