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.

    Portia & Pepper

    Pepper and Portia are two tortie and white sisters of around 9 years old who have come to us for rehoming as their owner is going into sheltered accommodation and can’t take them with her. Pepper is the shyer of the two and a little nervous but when she gets to know you she will be all over you like a cheap suit. She is a champion head bumper and will purr and drool happily for as long as you can fuss her. She really should be called Cindy Crawford as she has the long legs of a supermodel making her really tall plus a gorgeous black “beauty spot” on one side of her face. Portia is less shy but like her sister, she loves fuss and will purr loudly when you stroke her. Smaller but just as pretty as her sister, her party trick is to actually get into bed with you under the duvet then, either rests her head on the pillow next to you or snuggles against you so you can hold her like a teddy bear – adorable! These two have always lived together but they aren’t close and do sometimes squabble so we think they might be better rehomed separately as only cats so they can both enjoy being the center of attention as befits a tortie princess. They aren’t used to young children so would be best in an adult home or one with older children/teenagers with a nice garden to explore. Neutered and fully vaccinated as of the end of January 2018.
