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

    Jack and Jill

    Jack and Jill - ace footballers! 💜💜
    Jack and Jill (Jill has more white on her) were born to one of our feral Avonmouth mums but they are super sweet and friendly.  Born on the 20th of May they are now 11 weeks old and are typical little bundles of joy, into everything and full of beans.
    They have endless energy and love to play football with anything they can find - their dribbling skills are pawsome 😹
    They also love to nibble toes and don't sit still so getting good pics isn't easy! They'll need a garden away from busy roads for lots of adventures, are fine with other cats and would be 9k with gentle children.
    Vet checked, chipped, had first vaccination plus come with 5 weeks free insurance.

    Mimi

    This is Mimi! She is a very sweet, chatty tortie who arrived at her foster carers' a bit thin and very anxious having been living alone for a couple of weeks - her mum sadly went into care and Mimi was home alone. Since being in an environment where she can receive lots of physical contact and reassurance on a regular basis, she has come on leaps and bounds. Mimi is not much of a cuddler yet, but given her progress, I'm sure she will be as soon as she feels settled. A significant breakthrough came with the introduction of brushing - Mimi LOVES to be brushed. She will purr, dribble, make biscuits and gaze at you like you are the best human alive. Your arm will get tired before she gets bored and you will be rewarded with the occasional lick and head boop.
    Mimi's previous owner was a little overanxious about her health so she is very familiar with the vet and is on special food for some UTI issues. She has shown no signs of a problem since arriving at her foster placement though, so it seems a calm home with no children or other pets obviously suits her best!
    She'd like a potter in the garden but we doubt she'd go far as she's 14.
    Neutered,  chipped,  vaccinated plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.

    Mama

    All da floof! 💜
    Mama cat is a gorgeous, gentle Ragdoll cross approx. 8 yrs old. She is a little timid to begin with but once she knows you she's very loving. She sleeps on my bed every night and loves to play on a  evening. She's desperate to go outside so needs a garden away from busy roads - her last home had a wood behind so she was in her element! She would prefer a quiet home with no children or other pets.
    Neutered ,chipped, vaccinated plus comes 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?

  • Pixie

    Water baby looking for a new sink 💜 Well how do I describe Pixie - mad as a box of frogs probably covers it! . She is the one of the most beautiful cats I have ever met, about 18 months old. She loves her food but is a nibbler and tends to eat small amounts through the day. She is very friendly but also likes her own space and a sunny windowsill. She was stressed in her previous home with young children so needs a quieter home now with no other pets. She starved herself for 2 days when she first arrived but has since really come out of her shell. This cat is a true wonder of the world, she is a teenager of monumental proportions. She likes to bin dive and get on the side in the kitchen. She understands the word no but I often have to remove her from said bin and side. She has recently started playing properly. She absolutely loves the box I have got with holes in and spends ages getting the balls mice etc out and thoroughly trashes her room whilst playing. She loves a wool ball and charges all over the house, up and down the stairs etc chasing it to give it a good battering. She also loves catnip and hanging toys. She hunts through the bannisters and is an absolute devil on the stairs. - I wouldn't recommend her for those less agile! She also hunts toes, my 18 year old son is her plaything, the pair of them seem to be the same mental age, it's absolutely marvellous 🤣 She is totally unique and an absolute joy and has a particular fascination with taps and plugs. She loves to watch water coming out of the tap and then into the plughole ( it's magic you know, where does it come from and where does it go?) She is so determined that she barges into the bathroom in the morning, gets in the sink and cries for you to turn the tap on. She often puts her paw in the flow of water. She then spends a considerable amount of time examining the tap, plughole and the water, her nose goes right down the plughole. Honestly this is a new one on me but it's absolutely magic to watch. She looks at you in delight. In this house she gets a "clever girl" - we embrace the lunacy! She is a fabulous cat whose personality is really shining now she is truly settled. She is happy, friendly and fun. We will miss her but she is ready to go to a special home that will embrace her idiosyncrasies. Neutered, chipped, had first vaccination plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance. Are you ready to adopt a cat from Bristol & Wales Cat Rescue?

  • Merlin & Chester

    Merlin and Chester need a home together 💜💜 Merlin is 11 yrs, a Russian blue/Burmese cross and very, very friendly. Chester the ginge has a bit of Ragdoll in him and is also soft and soppy, he's 5 yrs. Both have been used to nice dogs and all they want is a lap, some home comforts and a safe garden to have a potter around. A quieter home with someone happy to spend time lavishing them with fuss and attention would be perfect. Merlin did have an argument with a car when he was younger and has a pin in his back - it doesn't cause him any problems except for a permanent bald patch which helps no end with his street cred! Neutered, chipped, vaccinated plus come with 5 weeks free insurance - we're hoping to rehome them direct from their owner as we're bursting at the seams but they will come into foster if that doesn't happen in time.
