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

    A boy called Mimi

    A boy called.. Mimi💜
    Mimi is a superaffectionate puss who loves his humans and would be stroked/ brushed/ scratched/ tickled/ cuddled all day if he could. He was in an empty house for several weeks whilst his owner was hospitalised and he hated being alone and started overgrooming.
    "Mimi is a confident boy who is happiest being sat on or near you. Enjoying his creature comforts, he's happiest curled up on a heated blanket or a lap and snoring!
    We have described him to friends as "aggressively affectionate" as he will pester for ear scratches and chin tickles, sometimes forgetting his manners and using his claws to keep you stroking him!
    He loves his food, mostly ignoring dry food for wet, uses his box well and is keen to go outside though we doubt he'd go far. He would prefer a home where people are around most of the time and can give him lots of attention."
     He's always been an only puss so would like to stay that way and older children would be fine - they just need to aware of his overenthusiastic attempts to make your hand keep petting him.
    About 12 yrs old, neutered,  chipped,  vaccinated,  had a dental plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.
  • Dennis & Denzel & Dolly & Dotty

    More kittens from Avonmouth 💜 Luckily we managed to trap their feral mum whilst she was pregnant and she gave birth to these cuties in foster. "Dennis, Denzel, Dolly and Dotty - looking for homes in pairs. These cute bundles of joy were born on the 27th February to one of the ferals that we trapped at Avonmouth. They charge around chasing each other and at times they appear to play more like dogs chasing their own tails! They are a definite trip hazard, ruling the house and expecting you to get out of their way 😹 As soon as they wake up and see you they charge over purring like little steam engines wanting a fuss. Their favourite toys are a ball in a tube and a feather on a stick and they will, play for hours - they're terrible timewasters! Dainty Dolly (the one with more black on her face) is a little timid but is getting braver day by day with the help of her siblings. They would be ok with older children and need a garden away from busy roads." They are all chipped and have had their 1st vaccination plus come with 5 weeks free insurance.

  • Leo & Sally

    **This beautiful pair are bonded and need to be homed together.** They previously lived with two other cats and older children and they both exhibited signs of stress, but, since being in a quiet foster home they've been absolutely fine. "Leo and Sally have never showed any signs of anxiety in their new surroundings; Sally soon came out of hiding, taking cues from her extrovert, confident brother and they both settled down very quickly. They have a close bond and definitely need to stay together. I really feel they are ready for a forever home, reluctantly because they’re absolutely gorgeous and having them around is such a joy! They are 2 years old and are very sociable, playful and affectionate and love attention though they also love competing for balls, chasing each other and snuggling up together on their favourite chair." They'll need a quieter home, older children may be ok plus a garden away from busy roads. Neutered, chipped, vaccinated plus come with 5 weeks free insurance.

Our Longest Foster Residents

  • Meg & Max

    Mum Meg and son Max 💜💜 This pretty pair are more lucky cats rescued from a life on the streets. They are shy but loving, very gentle natured and enjoy a fuss but like to approach you first. They are not overly happy being picked up so will need a patient household to help them progress and so are not suitable for very young children. Max loves his Mum and they are very close with Meg regularly still washing him though she puts him in his place from time to time too - once a mum, always a mum! They would do well settled in one room to begin with and with puppy pads/newspaper around the litter tray - Max had an upset tummy when he first arrived (all sorted now) and he associates the litter tray with discomfort. His once daily poop tends to be just outside the tray now and obviously won't be an issue once they start going outside. They'd love a garden away from busy roads and they're good with other cats. Meg is 3 yrs, Max is 2yrs and they're both neutered, chipped, vaccinated plus come with 5 weeks free insurance. Are you ready to adopt a cat from Bristol & Wales Cat Rescue?

  • Sid

    ,
    Can't believe we haven't had a single enquiry for this gorgeous boy 💜
    Silly Sid is a young at heart miniature panther; previously a stray, this gentleman has become accustomed to the home comforts which humans can offer.
    Sid has had a hard life on the streets, and has had quite a few teeth removed – you’d never know, based on the way he eats his food though and the only sign is the way he does frequent tongue bleps  - he'll be a star on "Tongue out Tuesdays"!
    Although slightly older you’d never know based on the way he plays with his feather on a stick. He enjoys looking out the window and is keen to go outside again so needs a garden away from busy roads.  He would suit a quieter home (no children or other pets) and whomever takes him must be prepared to have an extra colleague if they work from home – Sid currently cries beside me unless I set him up his own work station ( ie cardboard box but he likes to feel he's helping!) next to me whilst I work.
    If you’re looking for a little shadow, silly Sid is your man!
    About 11 yrs, neutered,  chipped,  vaccinated plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.

  • Smudge

    ,
    No idea why he's called Smudge 😂💜 Smudge loves to sleep up in a high place or nestled underneath a blanket. He is beginning to enjoy playing with string and empty toilet roll holders (!) and is starting to show an interest in life outside the front door so needs a garden away from busy roads. He is a little fussy with what he eats, he likes a specific brand of wet food and it must always be fish! Smudge has taken some time to settle in but is now settled in a good routine. He is still nervy of loud or unexpected noises and he sometimes gets confused between affection and playing, which has led to a few unexpected nips. As long as you are aware and looking for the behaviour, you can avoid these easily enough - he's still learning how to cat, bless him. He will need a quiet, understanding home with older or no children and no other pets. About 6 yrs old, neutered, chipped, had first vaccination plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.
