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

    Niro

    Niro is a real sweetie with a fondness for biccies and excessive amounts of fuss. Although he’s a bit nervous about noise (the hoover is his arch enemy), once settled in he is a really loving boy that loves a sofa pamper session.

    In his new forever home, Niro will be found roly polying on the floor, curled up in your favourite spot on the chair, or snoozing behind the sofa. He’s a quirky cat with plenty of quirks to keep his new owner entertained!

    He’s looking for a nice quiet, loving home with someone that is willing to dedicate a substantial portion of their evening to fuss!

    Petra & Magellan

    Petra and Magellan are a gorgeous mum and kitten pair. They’ve had a tough start in life on the streets so no wonder they’re a bit shy to begin with!

    Petra will require a bit more patience, but she is so sweet tempered and will very quickly start purring when you scratch her on the head and under the chin. She’s so gentle and has never scratched or tried to nibble at you even when scared. She’s now feeling more comfortable after 2 weeks in her foster home and is starting to explore. She’ll blossom into a wonderful companion with understanding owners, ideally in a home with no other pets or young children.

    Magellan’s a more confident, dapper little chap who loves scampering around chasing flies and is quite a gymnast when it comes to catching “The Bird”, showing off with spectacular jumps and backflips. He’s just taken to following you around from room to room, rather like a puppy!

    Once they’re settled in they are such a sweet pair and have so much to offer. They will need a garden away from busy roads, especially as Magellan is itching to continue exploring and conquering!

    Esme

    Esme came into us like a beach ball and gave birth shortly afterwards; she’s been an amazing mum to her 7 little munchkins and now it’s time for her to be spoiled.
    She’s about 2 years old and just the sweetest, friendliest puss going. She’d be fine with children but would prefer to be an only cat. And she’d love a garden away from busy roads – she was living rough throughout her pregnancy and likes being outside but appreciates her home comforts and cuddles too.
    Esme needs to be on a urinary diet as she did have a mild episode of crystals in her urine but she’s absolutely fine and the diet keeps her fit and well.
    Esme is fostered in Bridgwater and is neutered,chipped, vaccinated plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.

Our Longest Foster Residents

  • Fudge

    Very friendly spayed and chipped 16 year old female. Fudge is fit and healthy and likes her food and sleep but can be grumpy and strong willed. She would most likely be OK with other quiet animals.

  • 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.

  • Jess

    Beautiful little panther Jess was a failed foster but her foster dad turned out to be allergic to her sadly so has to give her up.
    She’s quite an independent puss – she loves being outside and would need a garden away from busy roads – but she also loves a fuss and a chin scratch and sleeping on your lap or snuggled by your side.
    She’s 11 but plays like a kitten and is a happy little soul. She was stressed by other pets in her previous home so needs to be an only pet.
    She is a bit shy, to begin with, and isn’t crazy about being picked up so wouldn’t suit young children, unfortunately.
    Neutered, chipped, vaccinated plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.
