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?

    Minnie and Belle

    MINNIE was 13 years old in May. Sadly, her owner is moving from mainland UK and is unable to take either her or her companion, BELLE, so these beauties need to find new homes, either together or seperately. Minnie was a tiny kitten when she was found, when she survived a serious dose of cat flu. She's a house cat by choice but occasionally uses the cat flap to have a wander around her garden. She uses a litter tray outside as well as inside the house. Minnie doesn't like other cats (except for Belle) but she loves to be the centre of attention and be cuddled and fussed over. She is used to children. It will take her a while to settle into new surroundings so needs a secure, safe home for her old age. BELLE will be 15 years in July. Sadly, her owner is moving from mainland UK and is unable to take either her or her companion, MINNIE, so these beauties need to find new homes, either together or seperately.  Belle is a timid caat but very friendly and loving. She enjoys spending lots of time in the garden watching the world go by. She is nervous of other cats but is used to children and uses a cat flap.

    Pebbles

    ,
    He's really sweet and friendly and loves a cuddle. Loves to be brushed. He's also very shy and will take a little while to get used to his surroundings. He's 14 but seems to be in good health. All in all a big fluffy cutie pie.

    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?

    Furby

    FURBY is a friendly, three year old, neutered ginger male who enjoys a cuddle. He is also reasonably tolerant of other cats. He has had a number of homes in his short life - not his fault but the fault of his humans - and needs a settled life now where he can grow in confidence.
