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

    Five & Socks

    These sweet, shy cats are 14 years old and were taken on by an elderly man who is now unfortunately in hospital. They lived mainly in his garden and were wary of other people – 4 other rescues sadly told the family to ‘just put them to sleep’ despite claims to be non-destruction in some cases 🙁

    So we welcomed Five and Socks instead – they both needed dentals and lots of TLC but are enjoying being in the warm with regular meals and soft beds and their fostermum can stroke them and cuddle them now 🙂
    They will be a bit of a project and need a nice quiet home with no other pets or children but they so deserve a chance after years of living rough. They’d still like a garden in a safe location but just to visit when they choose!
    Neutered, chipped, vaccinated plus come with 5 weeks free insurance.

    Spike & Beau

    Spike is a handsome black panther who is coming up for 5 months old. He came into foster with his brothers Mac and Tabsey as a frightened feral at 10 weeks old but has settled into domestic life and is a very sweet little boy now. He will go to foster mum for a cuddle and a fuss but prefers cuddling up next to you to being on a lap. He loves to play, especially with the other foster kittens. He can be a little shy with strangers but once he knows you he is fine.

    Beau a little tabby boy born around the end of July 2018. Beau came into foster with his 2 brothers and is a sweet and friendly kitten who loves to play and loves to have cuddles on foster mum ’s lap. He likes other cats and plays nicely with Spike which is why we have teamed them up together.

    These two would like a home together with a safe garden to play in once they are old enough. Spike has been vaccinated, chipped and neutered and Beau has been vaccinated.

    Comes with 5 weeks free insurance.

    Saffron is a sweet little black puss whose owner has sadly died. She’s 15 and just wants a quiet, retirement home – she’s a bit shy, to begin with, but it doesn’t take her long to enjoy cuddles, even with quite little humans!
    She shows no interest in going outside so could happily be an indoor puss or an outdoor one who won’t go far. She needs to be the only pet as other cats scare her and she just wants a lap and some fuss preferably with a toasty warm fire!
    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.
