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

    The rather elegant Ellie is a 12yr old pedigree Cornish Rex and yet another puss taken to the vet to be put to sleep. All because the owners moved house and Ellie got stress cystitis - they refused to even give her antibiotics 🙁 Needless to say after a week's course Ellie is now fighting fit, smooching for England and raring to go to a lovely new home. A quieter home with no other pets or young children would suit our pretty girl plus a garden away from busy roads though we doubt she'd go far. Now she's settled, she just loves a fuss and is quite chatty about it! Neutered, chipped, had first vaccination plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.

    Scamp and Daisy

    Scamp and Daisy are 11yr old siblings and looking for a home together. They both need to lose weight, bless them, as Daisy likes to sleep...a lot ...and Scamp is addicted to treats and will follow you around in the hope of more - you must resist! They've settled into foster well after a nervy start as they've only ever known one owner and a quiet home. They couldn't cope with children or other pets. They're sweet, affectionate cats, ruled by their bellies and will take a little time to settle in. They mostly get on ok together but do have occasional sibling spats! They'd love a garden away from busy roads for a bit of exercise too. Neutered, chipped, vaccinated plus come with 5 weeks free insurance.

    Lily and Poppy

    Lily and Poppy are 16 and 15 yr old half sisters who are looking for a home together. After spending all their lives so with one owner who’s no longer well enough to take care of them, they’re now looking for a quieter home to enjoy their retirements. They are far younger than their age, in looks and personality though! Lily is a white and grey Persian who’s shy and quiet. She likes to find a sheltered spot to snuggle away most of the time, but will happily hang around when your dinner’s on the table! She’s not a big eater and prefers to graze. She’s a little timid, though very friendly and affectionate, but will hiss when she’s unhappy. Poppy is a tortoiseshell half Persian who’s the more confident of the two. She’s very vocal and will tell you when she’d like some attention or more food! She's not a big cuddler and likes her own space. She loves to have a high vantage point so she can watch birds or people through the window and would appreciate a hooded bed to snooze away in. They both love strokes and chin scratches, though they like to approach you first and they will need daily grooming. Lily and Poppy are mostly indoor cats. In their previous home, they had a little balcony to explore and no garden, so they would be suited to a new home with the same situation or as entirely indoor cats. They would do well in an environment where someone is around most of the time, as they feel secure in company. A calm, quiet place where their personalities can shine, with someone who has lots of time to spend with them would suit them best. They are neutered, microchipped, have had first vaccinations and have five weeks’ free insurance. They both have Grade II heart murmurs which have caused no issues so far and are unlikely to. They both need an eye keeping on their teeth as they could do with dentals but our vets are unwilling to risk the anaesthetic - if they do cause problems in future then BWCR will fund the ops at one of our vets.

  • Hope

    Here we have Hope who came into rescue as a pregnant stray. Hope’s 4 kittens have flown the nest, and she is looking for a home of her own. We believe Hope is around 4 years old. Her coat is a beautiful dilute tortie colour, and she definitely has tortitude! Once Hope gets to know you she will rub herself all over you and give plenty of head bumps. She loves a fuss, but on her terms and she will let you know when she’s had enough! We are looking for a home with no other cats or dogs and no young children. Someone who is patient and has experience with cats would be ideal. Hope would also love to be able to explore outside, so a home away from busy roads, with access to outside space is a must. Hope will be neutered and chipped next week, is up to date with worm and flea treatment and will come with 5 weeks free insurance. Home check and adoption fee applies.
    Hope is with Eileen in Aberdare so please contact her direct on 07815056120.
  • Sylvester & Suki

    ,
    Sylvester and Suki are looking for a quieter home with no young children 🙂 This pretty pair aren't related but were both born on a farm.and came to us as shy little scaredy cats. They've since come on in leaps and bounds and love to play and chase balls and each other! Suki is the more confident but it doesn't take Sylvester long to come round as they both enjoy cuddle time and purr for England. They'll need a little time to settle in a new home and we won't split them as they're so close. They're both 15-16 weeks old, fully vaccinated and fine with other cats. They'll definitely need a garden away from busy roads as they're keen to be out having adventures. Are you ready to adopt a cat from Bristol & Wales Cat Rescue?
