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

    Pip and Parker

    Pip and Parker, two gorgeous brothers rescued from a hellhole hoarding situation in Romania, by our amazing rescuer friend Simona. Despite already having over 300 animals in her care, she fought for months to get these two signed over and on a one way ticket to a fabulous new life. Parker's tail has several, old, untreated breaks and Pip's eyes were pouring with pus but look at them now 🙂 Fostermum is a little smitten: Two super snuggly boys looking for a home together as they love each other dearly.  They love human company too and you will never be without a cat on your lap or snuggled into your side.  They follow you around so you will always have company especially when in the kitchen - they love their food!  Don’t let the photos fool you as they will charge around chasing each other, jumping into bags and boxes, carrying foam balls around, generally fluffy mischief makers. They're a little shy to begin with and need a quieter home, they're fine with cats and dogs and they would love a garden in a safe location away from busy roads - we're not sure if they've even been outside before but they'd love the chance. One year old, neutered, chipped,  vaccinated, have pet passports plus come with 5 weeks free insurance.
  • Sidney and Phoebe

    This gorgeous pair are looking for a home together. Sidney (3 yrs) and Phoebe (18 months) love to play and rough and tumble together and will curl up together too so we won't split them. They're affectionate little guys, good with dogs and would be fine with older children but not little ones - Sidney doesn't like being 'messed about' and will tell you off - quite right too Sid! They'd like no other cats and a garden away from busy roads to burn off some energy. Neutered, vaccinated, had first vaccinations plus come with 5 weeks free insurance.
  • Bob

    Bob is looking for his furever home again - after busting out the locked cat flap and going AWOL for a week his family have sadly decided he's not the cat for them after all and he's back with us. Beautiful Bob has a bobtail (not sure how he lost his tail!) but he just keeps Bob Bob bobbing along! He really is a lovely character-  in his former life he managed to get himself lost and survived for 4 years on the busy streets of Bedminster by befriending a kind man who began feeding him but was unable to invite him into his home. He absolutely loves a fuss and is desperate for a lap to curl up on - he'll take all the fuss you can give him. He'd prefer to be an only cat though older children would be fine plus he'll need a garden away from busy roads. He's 7 yrs, neutered,chipped,vaccinated, had a dental plus comes with 5 weeks 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.

  • 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?
