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

    Grace

    Grace is a youthful 11 year old and fit as a fiddle. She is accustomed to all the comings and goings of a family home so isn’t phased by alternating periods of being alone and noisy household activity including visitors. She was the only pet and wouldn’t take kindly to sharing her home with another animal companion. Although Grace is well trained in litter tray etiquette indoors, she always had garden access which is important to her and woe betide any feline interloper who crosses her path!
    Grace is definitely a cat who knows her own mind. She knows exactly what she likes and, what she doesn’t like, those around her soon know about. Grace is usually quite reserved and though she likes to be with people in the main living space, she also likes her own place where she won’t be disturbed. She likes her wet food, on time and plenty of it though she happily munches dry food if she’s hungry between meal times. Grace doesn’t like treats, they aren’t proper food apparently! Generally Grace has an air of undemanding independence although she soon reminds her carer it’s meal time by talking and a gentle tap on the arm.
    In mellow mood Grace will seek and show affection, she snuggles up to her carer with a lot of head nudging to encourage stroking and tickling. She's quite a character 😁

    Marley

    Shy guy needs to regain his confidence 💜
    Marley was originally acquired as a kitten to keep the existing 9 yr old cat company but, as he grew, he became far too bouncy and in your face, not leaving the poor older moggy alone.
    He's always lived as an indoor cat in a small flat so coming into foster has overwhelmed him a bit and he's become shy and anxious. He comes out for a fuss and loves affection and needs a quiet, patient home to allow him to settle and become his energetic, playful, exuberant self once again. His owner says he "bullied" the other cat - we suspect he just wanted to play but, not having seen it firsthand, we'll rehome him as an only puss.
    Part of the issue was him being confined indoors so he'd love a garden away from busy roads this time around.

  • Izzy

    ,
    6 year old Izzy is a wonderful, golden-hearted (and golden-haired) girl who just wants as much love and attention as she can possibly get. She is constantly purring, and follows you around miaowing for more which she will demand with some firm head bumps and rubbing her head in your hands. She loves to sit on your lap or chest with big purrs of appreciation whilst rubbing her cheeks on you and claiming you as her own!
    Izzy is very friendly with visitors and extremely curious but she is scared of loud noises and was bullied by her brother in her previous home so would be best suited to a house with no young children and as an only pet (so she can have all of the attention).
    Izzy has always been an indoor puss and suffered with stress cystitis due to children, her brother and even other cats in the garden but since she's been in foster and away from any triggers she's been absolutely fine and in seventh heaven 🙂

Our Longest Foster Residents

  • Andy and Saint

    Saint (tortie and white) and Andy, aptly named by the vet as they were caught on an industrial site on St Andrews Road. They were older kittens when they were caught and took a while to trust us. They are now both very affectionate, with Saint being the bravest and coming for cuddles first. We're not sure Andy will ever be a lapcat but he likes to sit next to you and enjoys lots of attention!
    They are gentle cats that like the company of other cats, they love to play together and will spend as much time as you can spare chasing a feather on a stick.
    They need to stay together as this lovely brother and sister are really bonded, they have been in foster most of their lives so will have no road sense and need a garden away from busy roads.

  • Lightning and Skitts

    Lightning and Skitts are a little discombobulated right now. Their owner, since they were kittens, sadly died and they were home alone for a while until a relative contacted us 💜
    "These are a bonded pair of gentle older cats looking for a new start since their owner died following a long illness and they were her only companions. They're not used to children or other pets.
    Lightning, 12 years, and his girlfriend Skitts, 14 yrs, are looking for a quiet life with someone who can give them lots of attention as they love a cuddle and a fuss.
    They would like a safe garden to potter in - having only been used to living in a quiet cul de sac they're not used to traffic."
    This lovely pair have had the all clear from the vet and are neutered, chipped, had first vaccination plus come with 5 weeks free insurance.
