  • Bella

    Bella needs some TLC 💜 This beautiful little puss had been a pet but arrived with us absolutely terrified and shaking with fear and we have no idea what her previous life was like for her to have caused this. We put her in a large dog crate to begin with to help her feel secure and to stop her hiding - her fostermum has worked wonders with her and she needs an experienced, understanding owner to continue her rehab. "After a few days I started wrapping her up in a blanket to give her some forced love and to show I am nothing bad. You could see she enjoyed the cuddles and her internal struggle was strong! When I was home I started leaving the crate open so she had the chance to explore on her own terms. When she was sure I wasn't paying attention she would race out of the cage and find a hiding space. I have lost her more than once - the places she has found and how small she can make herself! When I started leaving her out overnight she did everything she could to get under my sofa. I would get her out from there in the morning and she would run back to safety in the crate. We kept the crate for a few weeks until she was more out than in and it was no longer her main safe place, I don’t see how her transformation could have worked without that crate. When she is out in the open she still runs for cover but she hides more in plain sight like under the table or her other safe place: inside a shelf unit where you can still see her. She is a very playful 16 month old cat, slowly growing her confidence, curious and causing all kinds of trouble letting her inner kitten come out. Sitting in the window and watching people and birds is a big hobby. Playtime will help her forget her fears. When you lay down on the sofa or bed she feels safe to approach you for cuddles and will lie on or beside you. Last few weeks she has started to sleep with me in bed. Or why sleep some nights when you can just collect your toys, bring them into bed and play on top of you!? Every morning she comes straight up demanding cuddles. If you are not giving her what she wants she will tell you so by putting her paw on you :) The past few weeks she has also found her voice and will demand her food. She is very food motivated, the one time she is ready to be brave and sacrifice her life is when there is potential food to gain. She will try and steal your food on the plate, pans from cooking in the kitchen, getting into the food waste (keep it locked!). So that's the way forward with positive reinforcement it seems. She will need a special home where it is expected she will revert to her old self and start over the journey but hopefully a quicker journey this time. Quiet, not a busy environment, no children or other pets. A home with lots of love, patience, safe spaces, and occasional tough love - she can't be allowed to hide for too long. She did have a touch of conjunctivitis caused by stress and they may recur but it didn't need any vet treatment." Neutered, chipped, vaccinated plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.

  • Cece, Luna and Little Star

    Cece and the kids are looking for a home together if anyone is up for a trio of cuteness? 💜
    "Who will be lucky enough to adopt Cece (more white) and her charming children who are 6 months old?
    They really are an adorable little family, Cece has brought them up well and is a wonderful role model. Cece is only 2 years old herself and, being a thoroughly modern mum, she likes to join in with some rough and tumble play time. But more often than not she likes to have an afternoon nap while they play or she sits and watches them. They are so sweet and they are all really gentle. Little Star (male) and Luna (tortie, female) are a bit fluffy which makes them even more cuddly; they enjoy being brushed but often think it's all a big game though Luna is more ladylike than Little Star, Little Star just thinks you're his personal climbing frame 😹"
    Fine with older children and need a garden away from busy roads.
    All neutered, chipped,  vaccinated plus come with 5 weeks free insurance.
  • Jay

    ,
    Jay is a 2 and half year old. She’s playful and is very happy to occupy herself chasing around a ball or a leaf. Sometimes, she’ll even bring a ball to you so you can throw it for her. She likes to explore and will happily curl up on a lap, and even let you stroke her belly. She’s well behaved with using her litter tray. Jay is fully vaccinated, neutered and microchipped, plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance
  • Spirit and Thunder

    Best buddies looking for new digs together 💜
    "This duo are best friends so have to go together! Spirit and Thunder. They sometimes nap together or groom each other and it melts our hearts. Spirit is the small black female, she's just over a year old and full of love. She likes to sleep on our beds and often sits on our laps looking for rubs and cuddles.
    This cheeky madam also likes to steal Thunder’s food sometimes so we have two separate bowls!
    Thunder is a handsome 3yr old tabby and is a cool customer. He shies away from attention a lot of the time and doesn’t like sudden movements, but will then surprise us by asking for love and smooches which makes it all the more rewarding. He'd like a quieter home with no young children. He’s forced us to keep their dry food bags and pouches in a box as he’s a great climber and has reached his food stash on the top shelf!.
    When they first arrived they hid behind the couch for two days but have come fully out of their shells. They sometimes get the zoomies and chase each other around the house and would love a garden away from busy roads to explore. Spirit isn't a fan of cat baskets so a top opener would be good for her.
    Neutered ,chipped,  vaccinated plus come with 5 weeks free insurance.
  • Xena

    Quiet stess-free home needed for our little warrior princess 💜 Xena is a very friendly, playful and adventurous1 year old long haired female. She's very people orientated and enjoys being smoothed and is getting used to laps and being picked up. She wouldn't suit very young children as she has had stress induced (ie non-epileptic) seizures when being handled so needs to be carefully monitored. These incidents have disappeared since Xena has been separated from her siblings and her confidence has greatly increased so she needs to be an only cat in a quiet household to keep her stress levels as low as possible . No treatment or tests have been carried out or are planned though any related treatment/costs would be covered by vets in East Bristol. The aim is for Xena to be able to go outside, rather than be an indoor only cat, but this would need to be very controlled so that any problems could be easily dealt with though none are anticipated due to the progress that she has made. Neutered, chipped, vaccinated plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance. Are you ready to adopt a cat from Bristol & Wales Cat Rescue?
