    Bobby is a magnificent Tom cat with the sweetest meow. His fur is as soft as silk and there is not a bad bone in his body. The resident feline was a bit of a hiss monster but he just took it in his stride and just wandered on through she was extremely frustrated. Bobby has had a really tough life. He had been living rough for at least the last 4-5 years in the local area and became progressively unwell. We managed to catch him and he has become a much loved temporary resident. He has had a lot of veterinary treatment he had cat flu, a chest infection, was underweight, matted all over and had terrible teeth. He has had treatment for his chest infection, his cat flu symptoms are a thing of the past but he will always be a carrier of cat flu, he has had all his teeth removed so the worst he can do is gum you to death. When he went in for his teeth op the vet phoned and said she "had noticed he had a rather magnificent pair of testicles and did he want to keep them" I said no so he had them removed at the same time. My son pointed out that he was going to be very careful the next time he went to the dentist. Bobby had blood tests and his kidneys heart and liver are all fine. He does have a heart murmur also but it certainly does not cause him any issues. Bobby has a beautiful coat and loves a comb he goes into a trance and to his happy place, he is very very friendly and likes to be close and lots of strokes are a must. If you need a break all you have to do is put your hands underneath your legs and say lie down and he will settle down happily. He has taken all his medication in his food without any issues. He is fine with the litter tray it took a little while for him to settle and we had a few accidents. He is great in the car he almost seems to enjoy it and is really calm at the vets. He found his purr after a few weeks of good food (it is now in full flow) and warmth and he has just started to play with toys. He is a very happy chilled out cat. I now have trouble getting out of bed as he sleeps with me overnight and if I try to get out he is very good at maintaining contact like a man on a spinning tree trunk in a fast flowing river. He head butts to get attention and understands the words no, food, lie down and get down. There are a couple of stray cat issues he loves to shred a bin bag and indeed dive into a bin (you never know there could be treasure) and he will if allowed get on the sides in the kitchen. His medical history may seem daunting but honestly I can say he is one of the most lovely cats I have every fostered and I can honestly say to you life will be enhanced and fundamentally changed by adopted this very special boy. All he will want is plenty of love, warmth and food. in return he will love you to bits and trap you in your bed. There are worse things you know.

    Meet Ollie 💜 Ollie is approximately 7 years old, but has the energy levels of a much younger cat! He will chase string or feathers on a stick for hours, and is desperate to go outside and burn off some of his energy chasing anything that moves (including quite often his own tail!). He also loves snoozing in the sunshine, and so would love a new home with a safe garden away from busy roads. He LOVES his food – his new owners will need to be quite strict about how much he is given to eat as he will completely convince you he is starving only an hour or so after he has emptied his food bowl! He will spend AGES batting around his treat toys to get to his beloved Dreamies, and will come running at the sound of any rustling packet! He was used to being fed titbits of human food regularly by his previous owner, and so anything vaguely appetising to a cat will need to kept under lock and key to avoid Ollie from trying to eat it. But the occasional morsel of tuna or chicken (or pretty much any meat!) as a treat will elicit a volley of purrs. Ollie is sometimes a lap cat, but is also happy a lot of the time to curl up on a chair in the same room as you, or on the bottom of the bed whilst you sleep. He is definitely a laptop cat though…be prepared for working from home to be somewhat hampered by Ollie sitting on the keys, or sprawling across your laptop in the middle of a Zoom call! He loves having his head rubbed and his chin scratched, but will sometimes gently put a paw up to tell you he has had enough – not usually with claws though. For this reason, and because he can get a bit over-excited when playing, he would like a home with older children. He does not get on with other cats though, so will need to be an only puss. Ollie’s history: Ollie turned up as a stray a few years ago in a bit of a sorry state – he had a skin condition which had obviously not been treated for a while as his entire shoulders and neck were a scabby mass. His previous owner took him in and doted on him, but Ollie was still having to have regular steroid injections when his skin condition flared up. Unfortunately his previous owner died a few months ago, and so Ollie was brought to us. The loss of his loving owner and the upheaval of the move into foster brought on a bout of stress cystitis, but that soon cleared up once he had had a bit of time to settle in to his new surroundings and was being fed only wet food. This wet-food only diet will need to be continued by his new owners to reduce the risk of further flare ups of cystitis. His skin condition is now being managed with steroid tablets, which he gobbles up happily – there is no problem getting him to take one every other day. The tablets will probably need to be life-long and BWCR are happy to fund the cost of these at Fernlea vets (Kingswood or Hanham). They're actually very cheap but, being prescription drugs, Ollie will need to see a vet - usually every 6 months. Ollie is chipped, neutered and up-to-date with his vaccinations and comes with 5 weeks free insurance. Are you ready to adopt a cat from Bristol & Wales Cat Rescue?

  • Lena

    Some beautiful tortietude needing a home 💜 Lena was living at a stables in deepest, darkest Wales for a few months and no owner could be found. "This beautiful little tortie has been with us for the past 3 weeks, she is so adorable with one of her back legs completely ginger and the other one black. Her beautiful shiny coat is like pure silk. She is super friendly and very chatty. She definitely is a foodie (she even purrs when she eats) and will get you out of bed when it is time for breakfast! She also really enjoys the occasional cooked prawn and smoked salmon. She loves her treats (Dreamies, Felix) and playing with string. She doesn't like to be held nor does she like sitting on your lap (yet!) but she will sleep on your legs or back during the night. She likes to be fussed but only on her terms. She enjoys listening to piano playing, it usually makes her fall asleep. Her favourite place to sleep is under our bed in her little bed away from the light and noises. For this reason Lena would not be comfortable in a loud home and/or with small children or other pets - she hates other cats with a vengeance.  She needs her own calm space as she can get startled by noises even opening a bottle of sparkling water. Lena would like a home with a secured garden and away from main roads. She has mastered the litter box and she needs a large, shallow, uncovered litter tray - she absolutely doesn't like a covered one - well she has to live up to that tortie reputation!" She's guesstimated at around one year old, chipped and vaccinated plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance. Unfortunately we don't know if she's spayed but there was no sign of recent kittens so it's likely she is but..if she shows signs of coming into season BWCR will fund her spay at one of our vets. She had a minor bout of cat flu due to the stress of arriving in foster so if that recurs with the stress of adoption we'll also fund any treatment if needed. She should be fine though :)
  • Garfield

    Garfield is a sweet natured 7 yr old boy who couldn't cope with the new baby. He settled in to his quiet foster home immediately and has no problems around new people. Garfield is a very affectionate cat with a lot of love to give, he enjoys hanging out with his humans while they cook, read, watch telly etc. He’s been very keen to get outdoors so needs a garden away from busy roads and people who can give him as much love as he gives them! No children or other pets as he can get cystitis when he's stressed. Neutered, chipped, vaccinated plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance. BWCR will cover the cost at our vet, if the adoption move does cause him stress cystitis- hopefully it won't as he's such a chilled dude now!
  • Freddie

    Meet Freddie - humper of blankets 🤣🤣 "Freddie is a gentle giant - he is over 7.5kg so almost like a small dog!  And he waggles his tail like a dog too - it's very funny.  He would be most suited to a quiet adult-only  home as he is pretty nervous.  He is used to me but if my boyfriend comes over he hides (even though he knows him for the past few months). Any loud noises and also he runs and hides.  He is very sweet natured and not at all demanding.  He enjoys being petted but doesn't yet sit on laps.  He is a total pleasure to have around.  He plays a little bit with certain toys but is afraid of others and he definitely needs a garden away from busy roads. He also needs to be the only pet as he's such a wuss. He has one little habit which potential adopters may need to know about - he likes to hump soft things! The vet said if they're neutered later in life they can still get the urges. He has his very own fleece blanket for when he's in the mood - he doesn't understand that he looks ridiculous 😂" About 8 yrs old, neutered, chipped, vaccinated plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.
