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?

    Kitty

    Cutie Kitty was stressed by the little human and the other cat in her previous home 🙁 When she arrived in foster, Kitty spent the first week under the sofa just creeping out for food and occasional cuddles but now she's turned a corner and ready to make somebody really happy. She loves her food so can be easily bribed! Kitty is so affectionate now and will drape herself all over you and head butt you for attention. She's only 11 months old and has a lovely nature and, now she can relax, she's very trusting and wanting belly rubs. Kitty will need a home with older children only and no other pets plus a garden away from busy roads. Neutered,chipped, had first vaccination plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.

    Baily

    Beautiful Bailey 🙂 Bailey is a friendly, cuddly puss with a playful side (she's only 7 months old). She loves attention and to snuggle up after a hard day exploring her garden. She's ok with other nice cats - the bully next door just duffed her up and bit her tail but it hasn't put her off! She's never lived with children but she should be fine with careful introductions. She'll need a garden away from busy roads and is neutered and vaccinated plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance. Are you ready to adopt a cat from Bristol & Wales Cat Rescue?

    Maisie

    Unfortunately Maisie is very camera shy, and doesn't show her best side, but she is loving feline who would delight in her forever home, showing you are her loving side. Maisie is a lovely cat. She is very nervous but after being given time and space her confidence has grown. She has begun to wander around the house and sleep on top of the blanket box not underneath it in her bunker. She is desparate for attention but gets frightened and runs away. She needs a relatively quiet patient home. She loves being combed and rubs up against her staff whilst being combed. She does not get on with the resident feline and is currently at defcon 2 hissing and yowling (she is vocal and food motivated) . She may always be a bit nervous but she is well worth the trouble.

    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.
  • Tia

    4 year old spayed and chipped very fluffy female who has lived outside for most of her life but has adjusted well to life indoors. Very shy but has a lovely nature. Would not suit very young children but is making good progress and is happy to be around people . Tia was part of a small group of cats and so is very good with other cats and would best be homed as a companion to a friendly domestic cat that she can learn from.

  • Arlo & Gus

    Cat name: Arlo & Gus Cat age: 2 (Arlo) & 1 (Gus) Cat colour: Tabby/white & black/white Cat breed: DSH Location: Bristol Good with children? Older children only (10+) Good with cats? No Good with dogs? No Need outside space? Yes Chipped? Yes Vaccination status: None Neutered? Yes The biography: Neutered and chipped 2 year old father Arlo (tabby & white) & 1 year old son Gus (black & white). Arlo is confident and loves fuss while Gus is quite shy but making good progress. Both have lovely natures but would not suit young children as Arlo especially is excitable and likes to nip occasionally. They love their food but are greedy at the moment so mealtimes and food availability need to be carefully managed but both are making progress. They have lived with another cat but are best as a pair on their own. Are you ready to adopt a cat from Bristol & Wales Cat Rescue?
