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


    Fluffy is two years old and a fun loving cat. She is up for rehoming because her two family members are now working full time and they feel that she is lonely on her own in the house. They would prefer her to go somewhere with more company.  Fluffy likes to laze in the sun and cuddle on your lap. She is also good around children. She is being neutered prior to rehoming and will also be up to date on worming and defleaing.
    Fluffy is with Eileen in Aberdare - please contact her direct on 07815056120.

    Arthur and Hetty

    Arthur and Hetty are an adorable, loving and cuddly 1-year-old brother and sister pair.
    Tabby girl Hetty is the more cautious of the two initially, but was out and rubbing round her foster mum's ankles within a couple of days of arriving (after a bit of Dreamie-flavoured bribery!). Arthur, on the other hand, loves everyone, particularly if they have something to eat, and will wrap himself round your ankles for a fuss within moments of meeting you. They're very close, and  like to play together, so would like to go together.
    They've been indoors-only until now. We're therefore looking for an indoor home as they'll have zero road sense, or in a perfect world, somewhere that's a long way from any public roads, so that they could have the choice of learning about the big outdoors if they wanted to. Ideally a home with no other pets too, although they'd probably be OK with a calm, non-bouncy dog. Older children would also be fine.
    Both come neutered, chipped and with their first vaccination.  They'll also have 5 weeks' free insurance.
    Fostered in Chippenham.

    Max is the snuggliest, cuddliest little panther going - he loves a lap and will meow at you to let him jump up for a fuss.
     He's 5 but thinks he's still a kitten and loves to play and chase dangly things; he's quite the little adventurer so needs a garden away from busy roads to have fun in.
    He wants to be the 'baby' of the family with all the attention and fuss and you'll get it back in spades!
    So no other pets, older children only and lots and lots of laptime please 🙂
    Neutered, chipped, vaccinated plus comes with 5weeks free insurance.

Our Longest Foster Residents

  • 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.
  • 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.

  • Spongey

    Spongey is lovely. She can be super affectionate, she meyowls at the door to greet me when I come home from work. She jumps on me at night and cuddles in. She Sometimes wonders about with a toy mouse at about 6 in the morning, yowling her head off only to come visit me in bed, if i call her to find out what the meyowls are about, and then gives me the toy mouse as a present.She has the softest thick black fur and occasionally will roll over to reveal a white patch on her belly that looks a bit like a bikini. She likes to be near too and follows me about the house telling me all about what's been happening. She has the sweetest chirrup when I fuss her.. Ideally would like her to have a home where someone is about, she doesn't like other cats but does like people. She can get exacerbated with too much fuss, but has been a lot better the longer she's been with me and now the cat buddy she came in with has gone. They didn't like each other.
