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

    Annabelle

    Annabelle is a real sweetie who loves a fuss and head bumps you for attention. She came from a home with lots of cats and children and was over grooming with stress; she's much happier being the only puss now in a quieter home. She's very gentle but does hate the vacuum cleaner with a vengeance! She'd love a garden away from busy roads though we don't think she'd go far - she didn't go out much in her previous home but she'd like the chance to lie in the sun when it suits her 🙂 9 yrs old, neutered, chipped, had first vaccination plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.

    Misty

    Misty is a friendly and snuggly cat. She may take some time to get to know you, but once she settles in she is very affectionate and loving. She loves her food and and will do anything for her favourite treat. She would prefer to go to a quieter home as she can be startled by loud noises and is wary of new things. She'd like to be the only pet with a garden away from busy roads. She does have a flea allergy so needs a vet prescribed treatment every month. 8 yrs old, neutered, chipped, had first vaccination plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.

  • Clementine (tortie) and Carter(black)

    ,
    ARE YOU UP FOR AN EXTRA SPECIAL PROJECT.
    Clementine (tortie) and Carter(black)
    These four fur babies came in to foster after being found outside with their mum, mummy did such a good job of looking after them that they were only spotted when they were about 5 weeks old.
    Some lovely people persevered and managed to catch 3 of them but it took an extra week to catch Clementine.
    When the first 3 came in to foster they were understandably terrified but with weeks of patience, love and gaining their trust they are now loving a fuss, sitting on a lap and playing with toys.
    They will never be the bravest kittens and will get easily spooked at loud noises and people walking in to a room though only until they realise it's their foster mum.
    What can we say about Clementine, when she came in to foster she was like a tasmanian devil, hissing, spitting and growling, if you could get near enough to touch her or cuddle she wouldn't bite or scratch and her foster mum even got in some kisses, after 4 weeks she decided she doesn't mind a fuss(see attached video) or a warm lap to sit on but its all on her terms and if cornered she will still give an occasional hiss.
    As these babies haven't had the best start they need very specific homes, so no children or not a home where children are planned in the future, must have a catflap with a safe garden and preferably people with experience of timid kittens.
    They will definitely need to have a bonding room set up as they may well revert back to the shy kittens that first arrived but hopefully if their new owners are happy to take the time they will bond with them.
    The kittens need to go in pairs, so Clementine as the shyest will go with Carter as he is the bravest and then Calico and  Carson.
    If you think you can offer two of these babies the perfect home and are willing to give them the time to show you their true personalities, please email the rescue on [email protected] to arrange a home check.

Our Longest Foster Residents

  • Rosie & Roxy

    ,
    Very friendly spayed & chipped 5 year old mother (Rosie – ginger/white) & 9 month old daughter (Roxy – tortie/white) who have been through a lot together recently. Rosie is quiet and loves laps and cuddles while Roxy is very lively and loves to play so Rosie is hoping for someone to help keep Roxy occupied. Would suit all ages of children as they are both very gentle natured. Rosie is a bit greedy so they need to be fed separately but both are quick eaters so this is easily managed.

  • Tabitha & Dino

    ,
    The odd couple! Dino is about 6 years and Tabitha is about 6 months and they've struck up a firm friendship and love to be together. Tabitha will headbutt Dino for fuss and he purrs his little heart out for her reassuring her that everything is ok. She cannot get enough cuddles from her human company too! Both were living outside but have definitely grown to love home comforts. They are shy initially but it doesn't take long for them to settle and enjoy lots of fuss. They couldn't cope with young children but are ok with other cats and would love a garden away from busy roads. Neutered, chipped, vaccinated plus come with 5 weeks free insurance. Tabitha has had an eye infection which may have been flu and it could flare up with the stress of moving but BWCR will cover any costs at one if our vets if it does.
