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.

Latest Cats Looking for Fur-ever Homes

  • New

    Bella

    ,
    Experienced adult-only home needed for Bella please. This stunning grey girl is a real Jekyll and Hyde - she can be superloving one minute then try and scratch and bite you the next. Unfortunately she hated the toddler in her previous home and gets her self defence in first if anything startles her. She'll smooch round you and loves being stroked but hates being picked up - you'll need to scruff her gently first - fostermum can demonstrate! Bella is 3 years old and has never been outside - it's best she stays as an indoor cat as just the sight of another cat will set her off grumbling and stressed 🙁 She will get much better as she learns to relax in a quiet new home but we suspect she'll always be a little unpredictable due to her past experiences. Neutered and going for first vacc and chip when she's in a good mood 😂 Plus 5 weeks free insurance.

    Champ & Daisy

    ,
    Champ and Daisy are two little bookends looking for a home together. They're brother and sister about 10 months old and their owners had to move and couldn't take them unfortunately. They've never lived with children and are a little shy - Champ especially is a bit overwhelmed - but they're very gentle and Daisy is now very much 'in your face' for a fuss. Champ just needs a little more persuading! We were told they were neutered but Champ still has his boy bits so they're off to the vet next week. They're really missing being able to go outside so need a garden away from busy roads and a home with no young children. Chipped, had first vaccination and being neutered soon plus 5 weeks free insurance.
  • Fluffy

    ,
    Fluffy Poor Fluffy has had a rough time. She was left behind when her owners moved on and lived outside wondering why she wasn’t allowed home any more for quite some time. She is safe in foster now and learning to trust again. She’s slowly gaining confidence and coming out from under the bed to check out what’s happening in the rest of the house. She needs new staff who will have the patience and love to let her settle in her own time. Once she does she will love cuddles with them and be a great companion. The poor puss has been waiting long enough for affection. She’s a beautiful black and white cat with the cutest smudge of black on her nose. Guesstimated between 7 & 10 years old. She has seen the vet and she hasn't any ongoing health problems. She would prefer a quieter home without other animals or children, where she can relax and know she’s safe and cared for. She has a good appetite and can probably be bribed with treats and chicken! She would love a nice safe garden to play in. This lovely deserving girl is spayed and chipped and comes with five weeks free insurance. All she needs now is her purrfect home.... Are you ready to adopt a cat from Bristol & Wales Cat Rescue?

Our Longest Foster Residents

  • Fudge

    Very friendly spayed and chipped 16 year old female. Fudge is fit and healthy and likes her food and sleep but can be grumpy and strong willed. She would most likely be OK with other quiet animals. Are you ready to adopt a cat from Bristol & Wales Cat Rescue? Make sure you read our Adopt page and complete our Adoption Application form.

  • Smudge and Salem

    Salem is 10 he is very affectionate, flops over and acts all kitten. Smudge is about 3 years old and is also very affectionate, he likes to sit next to me and flops about all loving and sweet.  
  • BB (Beautiful Boy)

    ,
    Short for beautiful boy, BB is the nicest, gentlest, friendliest puss about 8-10 years old. He was rescued by a vet nurse as a stray and found to be FIV positive - this wasn't a problem but unfortunately her dog was as he hated BB. So he came into foster and has been a big hit, purring and dribbling with ecstasy whenever his back is rubbed and tapping you with his paw if you stop too soon 🙂 Unfortunately he was then hit with a double whammy - he became hyperthyroid but he takes his tablets no problem and is well controlled. If that wasn't enough he was then found to be diabetic! But again he's easy to inject and is well controlled. It's a big ask to take on a cat with multiple health issues but he so deserves a home of his own at last. We're looking for a longterm foster where we cover the cost of his bills at Fernlea vets in Kingswood or Hanham. If anyone wants someone to care for BB will return your love in spades.
