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

    Sooty

    Sooty matches any decor purrfectly 💜
    Gorgeous Sooty is a very loving boy who loves having kisses and will give you his wet little nose when it's time for a snuggle. He likes a quiet environment around him and would rather sit on his owner's lap for cuddles than play on the floor. Except when he hears a running tap, in which case it's shower time!
    He has lived with a child but wasn't happy and would just take himself off somewhere quiet so he needs an adult-only home this tome with no other pets. He's desperate to go outside so needs a garden away from busy roads.
    Sooty is around 2 and 1/2 years old,neutered, chipped, vaccinated plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.

    Misty and Gipsy

    Indoor home needed for two sisters 💜💜
    These gentle girls are 9 years old and are currently home alone as their owner has sadly died.  A neighbour is going in to feed them but can't spend much take with them nor adopt them. They're both on the timid side so need a quiet, patient home to let the settle in - their world has been turned upside down and they're feeling a bit overwhelmed. They need to stay together and have had a recent vet check which they passed with flying colours.
    Neutered, chipped, had first vaccination plus come with 5 weeks free insurance.

    Diamond

    ,
    They call me flooftastic 💜
    Diamond is a beautiful 5 year old tortoiseshell cat who has been wonderful to foster. She is part Norwegian Forest cat, which gives her an exotic mystique and a lovely thick coat of fur. She loves to sit curled up next to you in the evenings and will often roll over to let you stroke her belly while she makes air biscuits in delight. She also loves to play, and will happily chase around a laser pen or ball, but is also content being left to her own devices to relax on a comfortable chair.
    She would like garden away from busy roads, to give her some room to explore, and is quite calm so would be happy around some gentle children. She has lived with 3 other cats previously with no problems. She is not fussy with food and has had no problems using a litter tray. Due to her long fur, she would require some regular brushing, which luckily she also enjoys. She has been given up due to her original owner being taken ill, she is looking for a forever home that can give her plenty of love.
    Neutered, chipped,  had first vaccination plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.

Our Longest Foster Residents

  • Georgia and Bella

    Two beautiful black cats for Halloween 💜💜
    Our names are Bella and Georgia (its hard to tell us apart) and we are currently seeking new servants. We are both slightly timid but once we get to know you we are loving and affectionate, especially at feeding time. And we make fantastic lap warmers!
     Our diet mainly consists of 11 plus or sensitive Purina, sprinkled with a little warm water. Then of course there is the occasional meat or fish treat. Our current hoomans let us come and go as we please, through our own cat flap. Whilst we like our time outdoors we don't wander far from home. If you feel you can give us a loving home we'd love to meet you.
    These lovely sisters are 13 years old and looking for a quieter, retirement home. They were originally adopted from us in 2013 and their owner is heartbroken at having to give them up but needs must sadly. They are still with their owner to save them the stress of a move into foster.
    Neutered,  chipped,  vaccinated plus come with 5 weeks free insurance.
  • Joon

    It's beautiful mama Joon's turn for a lovely new home 💜 Joon was the terrified young mum who gave birth in the bushes and didn't know what to do with her kittens when they were born. Once they were untangled by the vet and placed on her, warm and dry, she immediately started feeding them and became a most excellent mama. From swiping at me and throwing hissy fits, she gradually relaxed and let me tend to her kittens' wounds. As they grew older and climbed over me and snuggled in my arms, she learnt that I meant them, and her, no harm and she started to headbutt me nervously for a fuss. Once the kits left for their homes, it was time for Joon to go to another fosterhome where she would get lots more attention : "Joon is a beautiful but anxious tabby cat. She was very nervous for the first week but finally came out from behind the sofa and now loves to race around the apartment playing with her toy mouse or some string. She loves to sit next to you on the sofa (or better on the arm of the sofa) and have a little snooze. She can't wait to go out and explore the great outdoors, so needs a house away from busy roads. Once she trusts you, she'll be the most loyal companion and a friend for life." This little lady deserves all the love in the world now and needs a quiet adult-only home with no other pets. She's about 2 yrs, neutered, chipped, vaccinated plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance. Are you ready to adopt a cat from Bristol & Wales Cat Rescue?

  • Cassie

    ,
    Cutie pie Cassie 💜 Cassie is a super cuddly girl who wants to spend as much time snuggling with you as possible. She likes to press her head under your chin or flop out and sleep in your arms like a fluffy baby, and she has a breathy little purr that starts up at the drop of a hat. Cassie likes her wet food and will complain to the manager if her meals are late. She has Opinions and she will follow you around the house to make sure you hear them. She would be a great companion for someone who is always at home and able to give her lots of love. Cassie would like a bit of a garden to sniff around but probably won't go far. She'd like to be the only puss as she wants all the attention! She turned up as a stray in 2010 and was a young adult then so her owner thinks she's about 13 years old. She's neutered, chipped, vaccinated plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance. Are you ready to adopt a cat from Bristol & Wales Cat Rescue?
