Bristol And Wales Cat Rescue

Working Together To Give Cats A Second Chance

BS48 1AW


If you would like to adopt a cat all the information you need is on 'The adoption process' page; once you've read the boring stuff come and see our little beauties!

When you adopt from us, did you know that you are helping TWO cats? By rescuing, you free up that foster place for another cat in need.

Senior Kittizens




No suggested adoption fee for our Old Age Pusscats but any donations are very welcome as they've often had dentals and other expensive treatments.

Olivia  1

Beautiful chocolate brown Livvy is a quiet gentle girl who wants nothing more than a lap to cuddle on,food & a garden for a quick loo break. She is an independent girl who would be ok living with another gentle cat but not with young children. Livvy loves her fuss but not keen on being picked up 

Not suitable for young children

Vaccinated and neutered and 4-6 years old.


Luna & Lily 1

Luna is the black & white cat, Lily the white & tortie. They are sisters, two and a half years old.Both Luna and Lily have lovely natures, Lily being much more shy than Luna. These two are being re-homed together as they are very close. They will need somewhere that Luna can have all the fuss and Lily can settle at her own page. 

Spayed and Chipped

Olivia 2

'Olivia is a beautiful black and white short hair with a pretty little face that looks like butter wouldn't melt. She sadly needs a new home as her last one was also home to a new baby who was allergic to cats. She is a playful lap cat who is 7 years young but loves playing chase with a piece of string, stalking it from behind furniture. She likes sitting with you but also likes her independence and freedom to roam about. She would be best suited to a family with older children or a couple who have plenty of time to be at home and play with her. She is a gorgeous natured cat who has a really funny personality but also has a snugly purry side. Needs to be the only pet and focus of attention'

Neutered and vaccinated



I'm so proud of Sophie; from a terrified of everything cat who got her self defence in first she now rubs along with 6 other cats. Obviously if they get too close she swears at them...then runs away, she's that brave!

She's a funny, quirky character and we've had our moments but she looks at me with such hope and gentleness in her sweet face wanting to be loved; she will happily be stroked,  she may grumble after a while but I just carry on and she relaxes again.  I can even pick her up like a baby now and she likes to play,  something I don't think she's done for a long time. She rubs round my legs and happily hogs the radiator, she doesn't ask for much.

In short, she needs an adult only home with someone who won't put up with her ' nonsense' eg if she yells at a cat on the stairs I chase her up the stairs then down again (like another cat would ) and it becomes a game and she then comes to me for a cuddle knowing I'm the boss and her behaviour is unacceptable but also that I would never hurt her.

She needs boundaries and to feel safe, she could do well with other cats but they must be non - confrontational and not mind her bad language! She also needs a garden to help shed a few pounds which I can't offer her else she'd be staying. I'm very fond of this grumpy, chubby little Madam! 

she's about 6 years we think..

Pretty Tina is 3 years old but plays like a kitten at times. She's very gentle and loves a lap and lots of cuddles but is dominated easily by other cats so needs to be with another gentle cat or be an only puss.

She can be a little shy to begin with so probably best with no very young humans but if you can throw her a ball or play chase she'll  love you forever. 

She's very bright and will pinch and open Dreamies bags given a chance! 

She's  a really nice natured, full of fun little girl who would love a home and garden of her own again.

Zek & Mini

Zek and Mini came in to us as their owner was going abroad for a couple of months, and his son was allergic to cats, so he decided it was the fairest thing for the two of them.

They're a lovely pair, brother and sister from the same litter and almost identical.  Mini is usually the first out to see their foster mum, but Zek is soon rubbing round her ankles for a head rub! They're rather shy with new people and loud noises, so would suit a calmer home with no young children, but given a bit of time and love will reward the right family with loads of affection and entertainment.  

Both vaccinated, microchipped, neutered, and just waiting patiently for their purrrmanent home!




This is my latest boy Rudy for the website. He’s got a lovely gentle nature and would be good with any humans or cats/dogs but definitely prefers humans – he just sort of ignores other animals. He loves laps, fuss and cuddles and is estimated to be about 12. Neutered, chipped and all clear on FIV/Felv & general bloods check. 




Bowie is a tiny, pretty little fur ball of around 8 years old but hasn't had a great time recently having an accident that led to the removal of most of her tail. It's all fully healed up now and the fur has grown back now but she is easily spooked and very hand shy as a result of the trauma so she will need to be in a home with either adults or teenage children. She can be very sweet (she insisted on having her paw held on the way to the vet) and with her little bow moustache she is a very pretty thing. She is improving in foster care and will purr and let her foster mum stroke her tummy a little, you just need to gauge how quickly she is getting fed up! She is also a mean pole dancer on her scratching post and very low maintenance, preferring the cord from a posh shopping bag with a knot in one end to any shop bought toys and is very good with using the litter tray.

With further patience and kindness she should settle down even more and display even more of her personality. So far she isn't thrilled with having foster kitty brothers and sisters as she tends to want to be the boss so she will have to be an only cat.

Neutered, vaccinated, chipped and flea treated, ask to come meet this special little girl. 



Tilly is 6 years and spayed. She is very affectionate and loves cuddles. There is nothing better she likes better than sitting on a lap in the evening, snuggled up in front of the fire. Tilly responds well to her name and comes running, when you call her. In the day she enjoys sleeping in small spaces, under beds or sofas. She hides herself away very well, earning her the nickname, Heidi! Tilly is naturally a cautious cat and can be timid with strangers, she likes to get to know people first. She prefers women to men but seems to like children (living with an 8 and 9 year old). Ideally she would like a family where she would be the only cat.

Stoke  Gifford  

Benji & Bobby

Benji and Bobby are brothers and are 9 years old but they both, but particularly Benji, will play like a kitten given an opportunity. 

They would like to stay  together as it's all they have known. They are lovely cats, who just like sleeping and coming for a sleep on your lap when it suits. Benji is funny and will sit and pay with the dripping water from the kitchen tap, whilst Bobby prefers to sleep ;)

They aren't fussed about going out, they can always be found at home and just love a sneaky sleep on the bed, or nabbing the dogs bed;they have their own but seem to prefer everywhere but!

The boys are both used to dogs and children, but as they are getting older they'd probably  be happier in a quoter home.

They are vaccinated, chipped and neutered.



This is beautiful Rosie who is just the tiniest, cutest little ball of fluff! She is such a pretty cat and has a very ladylike attitude to go with it, with the politest little Meow and Purr. She is a very sweet little kitty and never has a cross word to say.. even when she is at the vets she behaves like a little lady. Rosie came to Bristol and Wales when her elderly owners were unable to take care of her anymore, she is a lovely cat but is quite nervous at times and can be a little timid… she is settling well in her foster home though and is making progress everyday as she becomes more comfortable and trusting with her foster Mum and Dad. She loves to play!!! hair grips, bits of foil, dressing gown cords… she's not fussy!


Rosie would make a lovely addition to any home and would be fine with children, she would just need some time and patience to settle in. She is not keen on other cats so would need to be the only pampered puss in your life… her current foster Mum calls her Princess Rosie and this sums her up well.. she is a little darling!


Rosie is about 7/8 years old, neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.

Tigger is a 12 year old long haired tabby who is neutered and about to get his booster in the next week or so. 

He is extremely friendly and very, very gentle. Such a good temperament on him. I'm having to rehome him as I have developed a skin reaction to fur over the last year and can't really give him the attention he craves. He prefers being the only cat and can tolerate children if they don't keep chasing/tugging him so probably best with older children

Home from Home Adoption

Timmy is 1year and 10months, he enjoys lots of company and a fuss but not too much as there are more exiting things to do like play...he loves to play! Not suitable for young children as he doesn't like to be overly fussed. 



Marley is a shy guy  but loves fuss and is getting better with laps and being held. He’s about 2 and is neutered, chipped, negative for FIV/Felv and good with other cats. He looks huge in the photo but is just quite chunky and has got a lovely tom head. He needs a quieter home where someone can give him time to build his confidence,  another friendly cat would help him.

Long well Green 


Russell came in to foster on Christmas Eve 2014; he had been living for over a year in the garden of a supported community care home in Bristol being fed by the residents. 

Russell is a  lovely boy  aged around 6-8 yrs old; he's very friendly though a little shy but he can be quite vocal when he wants something.  He’s quite independent so would suit someone who is in and out all day as he can amuse himself quote happily. He has been enjoying just being in the warm at last and being someone's special boy.

He’s not crazy about other cats though he is friendly enough most of the time. He would be best homed as the only pampered puss, or with one other friendly cat.  Not ideal for small children as he does have a tendency to reach out and catch your hand with his claws especially when  you’re serving food; he's just a bit impatient for his grub after being hungry for so long. 

He's  been vet checked and had a dental so he's now ready for his forever home.




Princess is a sweet cat who loves attention and is very affectionate and cuddly. She can be a little shy to begin with but it doesn't take long for her playful side to appear. She's about 8 years old and best as an only cat and is happy to snooze the day away, snoring gently! 




Beautiful Esther first arrived with us a year ago after she was seen being thrown from a moving cat and thankfully rescued. 

She's super friendly and cuddly and quite playful and the vet thinks she's 4-5 years old.

She has one blue eye and is deaf on that side but can hear perfectly on her yellow eyed side and doesn't miss a bag of Dreamies being rustled!

It turns out she's  a flu carrier and needed a dental, now all done, so we think her previous owners knew there was a vet bill looming....

 Her flu doesn't cause a problem, she just sneezes a bit and it doesn't bother her at all but she's probably best as an only cat anyway as she's not crazy about them! 

Like a lot of cats she has a flea allergy so it's important her flea treatments are kept up to date but she's easy to medicate as she loves people, loves attention and loves being involved in whatever you're doing. She really is the nicest little cat and bears no grudges.

Neutered,  vaccinated and microchipped. 



Gorgeous little Mack is about 8 months old and just a big kitten loving to play and chase around.

This adorable boy is fine with children and loves to be stroked especially ear and chin scritches!

He's  not crazy about being picked up but is getting better all the time and just struggles a bit to get  down.  He was quite skittish at loud noises when he first arrived bit has learned quickly that he's now safe and he's relaxed a lot.

He's  a well mannered little man and just wants lots of attention and playtime.

Neutered and chipped 




Lovely gentle Scribble is around 5 years old and is very affectionate although a little shy to begin with.

He's used to a quieter home so probably best with no tiny, noisy humans and he does love to go outside and meet the neighbours, human and feline! 

He's ok with other gentle cats but would probably prefer to be an only one. He's happy to amuse himself so would suit someone working all day but he does loves attention ad well so someone home all day would suit him just fine too!

Neutered, chipped and vaccinated.



Lovely dopey BIG boy who isn't as brave as he likes to think he is! Hovis is a sweet , gentle lad who loves attention and being stroked but isn't crazy about being picked up though you'd  need pretty strong arms anyway.

He's quite vocal and a bit of a wuss with other cats - he yells at them then runs away!

He's been very loved and was reluctantly given up as he wasn't coping well with the arrival of a new baby so he would prefer a quieter home as an only cat with no little humans ideally. 

He has beautiful silky soft fur and likes his food, sometimes a little too much!

He had a couple if bouts of cystitis a few years ago and has been fine since even through the stress of the baby and a move into foster and there's no reason he should ever get it again but his owners have fed him urinary diet dried food as a sensible precaution. 

Neutered, chipped and vaccinate and around 5 years old.

Diana turned up in someone's garden hoping to find herself a new home but they couldn't keep her so she's come over the bridge to try her luck in Bristol! Diana  is about 8yrs old and has been given a clean bill of health by the vet.

She loves a fuss and her food  but can be wary when meeting new people.

Diana would love to find a quiet retirement home where she can enjoy being the princess that she is.

She's probably best ad an only cat and with no young children. 

Presumed neutered due to her age and no sign of recent kittens but BWCR will pay for the op if necessary. 



Sweet gentle Polly is about 6 months old and very affectionate. She's just a big kitten and fine with other cats; she's pretty confident so would be fine with older children too.

Neutered and chipped


Meg & Myffy

Meg and Myffy are two lovely cuddly sisters who sadly had to come into foster because their elderly owner could no longer care for them. Despite being 12 years old they are young at heart and full of life. Myffy especially loves to play and will make herself heard when shes caught her favorite toy! 

Meg is a little shy at first but as soon as she spots a good lap she's quick to claim it and will happily spend the evening being pampered.

They've both lived as indoor cats but are keen to go outside so a safe, enclosed garden would be a dream come true for them. They were used to visiting grandchildren so a home with older children would be fine but mostly they just want lots of love and cuddles. 

They've both had dentals and been given the all clear by our vet.

Neutered and chipped.

She is 15 - 16 years old and very friendly.


Neutered, vaccinated and in good health unfortunately we are no longer able to care for her.


Crunchie has received medication for thyroid problems but has responded very well to treatment and back to her old weight.


We can happily supply further info if required





 Heather is estimated at 15 years old and has been looked after by a few people for a year or so. She’s been vet checked and chipped and all her bloods have come back as normal. She’s very friendly and loves fuss and attention but not too keen on other cats. Little bit deaf but has been coping with a quiet road.

Gorgeous big, chunky boy 3-4 years old who is so glad to be in a home he's just a purr machine! 

He's quite a dominant boy so best as an only cat but he loves attention from his humans. 

Neutered and chipped 


looking for a foster home

This is Rufus, the ginger lad who was wandering the streets, scavenging. He is now castrated. He is very friendly, purrs when being stroked, uses a litter tray and is content to be indoors at present. He is very handsome with his big tom head! He is ready to become part of a family and adapt to being in a house again.

If you could find him a foster, Margaret, that would be a big step for him because I can't have another cat loose in the house at present. Thanks. There is no growling and hissing between him and the other cats in the cattery - he seems quite chilled with them.



After only two days in foster including a trip to the vet for her first vaccination, beautiful half Maine Coon Amber has settled in a treat. She's very gentle and loves a fuss, she'll tolerate being picked up but it's not high on her list of favourite things although she was as good as gold being held to have some furry matts shaved off her tummy so maybe she's not as bad as we think! 

She's  not used to children and can tell you when she's had enough so best with older children only and be prepared for a lovefest when she decides she's in the mood!

Amber is 5 years old and is very reluctantly being given up due to a change in circumstances; she's come in with her friends Poppy and Saffy and they tolerate each other but aren't especially close so could go together or separately. 

Neutered, chipped and had first vaccination. 



Well what can I say about Saffy except she's a total love bug!  She arrived purring,  purred the whole time at the vet and purrs as soon as you look at her. She's a Seal point Birman with lovely blue eyes, 12 years old and is confident and gentle and loves everyone.

She's not used to young children and gets on fine with her friends Amber and Poppy as she pretty much ignores them so could be homed with them or on her own. She loves attention and will happily be carried around like a baby! 

Neutered, chipped and had first vaccination 



Lovely Poppy is 4 years old and arrived with her pals Saffy and Amber; at the moment she's the shyest of the three but still loves a fuss and just needs a little time to settle.  She's very calm and gentle and is quite a big girl with a lovely silky coat that won't need much grooming.

She gets on fine with the others but isn't especially close so can be homed with them or on her own. She's  a little sweetie who has claimed the windowsill to watch the world go by!

Neutered, chipped and had first vaccination

Kea is about one year old and is bright, lively and naughty!  He had no manners when he arrived and no concept of boundaries but being with other cats has done him the world of good; they've put him in his place several times and he's turning into a really sweet boy who loves to snuggle on a lap all evening.
He still has his moments so best with no young children but he's a great little character and very entertaining; he will even sulk if you tell him off!

Would like to be homed with his friend Boots-below

Keith was left behind when his owners moved and fended for himself for many months; when he arrived he was very scared and skinny with an upset tummy.

He's had antibiotics and lots of TLC and he's put on loads of weight and his day revolves around meal times!

He's still a little shy but loves attention and can be picked up like a baby and cuddled although he couldn't cope with young children. He and Boots are good friends now so we'd like to home them together; Keith is 6-8 years and would love a garden in time for Summer!

Would like to be home with his friend Keith-above

Boots was handed over by his owner in a dreadful state :  skin and bone from an untreated thyroid condition , needing a dental, never been vaccinated or even treated for fleas :(

After months of thyroid tablets he's now had his thyroid removed and has doubled his weight and had his teeth sorted so he's feeling and looking like a new cat!

He's about 10 years and a quiet,  calm soul who likes a fuss but isn't used to young children so would love a quieter home with a nice garden to explore. He's a really sweet boy and has made friends with Keith who is a little timid and we'd really like to home them together if possible.

Like a lot of cats Boots has a low grade heart murmur but it causes no problems and needs no treatment.

 Lucky is an eight-year-old lady who's  had a
 stressful time in recent years, having to live with a dog she did not
 get on with and another cat, with children in the house too. She got
 very stressed and and was literally pulling her fur out.
 But she settled in very quickly with us, is very friendly and came to
 be stroked immediately. She seems very relaxed, although she shows
 some occasional signs of nervousness, and is only slowly expanding her
 territory, but we know that she'll  be fine in a quieter home.
 She enthusiastically uses her scratching post and plays with her toy
 Lucky would thrive in a quiet home with a garden with gentle,
 affectionate human companions.




Look at this beautiful face.  
Bobby is a gentle, friendly boy aged 5. He is a quiet boy who loves to snooze and enjoys a good head rub once he's got to know you.  He lives with two other cats at the moment and has a play with them sometimes charging up the stairs.  Would probably suit a quieter home as this is what he has been used to.

Beautiful Oscar-9 years of age, currently living with Lola-although they are best homed separately unless you have large amounts of space, and lots of people to give them both lots of attention; they get jealous of each other.

Oscar is not really a lapcat, but does like to sit close to you, and follow you about. He rewards you with head butts. Oscar is part Burmese, suitable for any home with or without children.

Neutered, Chipped.



Lola-9 years old, currently living with Oscar although they are best homed separately unless you have large amounts of space, and lots of people to give them both lots of attention; they get jealous of each other.  They are the most loving affectionate well tempered cats and love being smoothed, even their bellies.

She is not really a lapcat, part Burmese, suitable for any kind of home with or without children, Lola is a bit of a trip hazard though so not good for anyone a bit shaky on their pins.

Neutered, chipped.




Name: Kasi (Swift in Swahili). Currently being prepared for travel to the UK. Available from w/b 19th January. About Kasi: Female Bronze native Egyptian Mau, born approximately 2012. This beautiful example of a Mau is vivacious and amazingly intelligent. She is described as being vocal and an entertainer who loves being around humans but will need some TLC and patience to build up trust as she has spent much of her life on the street, albeit fed, neutered, vaccinated and kept safe by a local rescuer. Kasi was likely an unwanted kitten, kicked out onto the streets when she was no longer a cute kitten.

As with all native Egyptian Maus coming to the UK she has all her vaccinations, including rabies and is litter-trained, neutered & micro-chipped.  Kasi will be UK vet-checked on arrival into the UK and will receive worming and flea treatment. Rescuer: Jocelyne Yomede. Adoption fee to cover the majority of her preparation and travel costs is £260. Please note EMCRUK (Egyptian Mau Cat Rescue UK) is run by just a few unpaid volunteers and adoption fees never include the cost of daily feeding or welfare of the cats. To find out more about this cat or about the native Egyptian Mau generally please contact David on 01453 792172 or e-mail

Her Kittens Below
Are Located in Avonmouth

Name: Carmen: Female Bronze Lybica (Spots and Stripes) patterned Native Egyptian Mau, born in May 2014 and is 9 months old. NEMCRUK facilitated her rescue via a new fosterer & unfortunately Carmen arrived with us in the UK on the 7th December pregnant. She was a sweet loving and affectionate cat during her pregnancy & on the 3rd January she gave birth to 5 lovely kittens. Being only a kitten herself, Carmen has struggled to produce enough milk for the kittens, but has been very good at cleaning them & is a very protective mum.

Carmen is beautiful example of a Mau and is amazingly intelligent. She is energetic, loves playing & is looking forward to going back to being a kitten again. Carmen gets on well with other Male cats (untested with females) & is now looking for a family to call her own.

Since her arrival she has been scanned twice, fully blood tested, treated against fleas, worms and ear mites. Carmen may be a carrier of the FCV strain of cat flu a carrier, so adopters just need to be aware that any stress may cause symptoms of flu and any other cats she lives with must be fully vaccinated.

Prior to coming to the UK Carmen has had all her vaccinations, including rabies. She is litter-trained & micro-chipped. On the 14th February she was Neutered & so currently has a few small shaven patches from the procedure.

The Adoption fee for Carmen is £280 and this will put a small dent in her preparation costs and medical bills. Please note NEMCRUK (Native Egyptian Mau Cat Rescue UK) is run by just a few unpaid volunteers and adoption fees never include the cost of daily feeding or welfare of the cats. 

Carmen will be available to go to her new home from Sunday 8th March after her kittens are re-homed.

Spoticus: Born on the 3rd January 2015 this little gladiator will be 8 weeks old on the 3rd March & available for adoption on Saturday 7th March (subject to his weight being over 800g).

Spoticus is a Bronze Lybica (Spots and Stripes) patterned Native Egyptian Mau. All though he is small at present, he has a big purr and is always the 1st to do anything new. He is very confident and full of energy. He loves climbing up your leg for fuss and attention, plus he will sit on your lap and happily fall asleep there. He is a very good climber and will growl to defend his toy from the other kitten or run off with it very fast.

As he grows up he will have a medium build and his eyes are starting to turn green. Egyptian Maus are highly intelligent cats & should be considered as an integral part of the family.

The Egyptian Mau is the fastest of the domestic cats, with its longer hind legs, and unique flap of skin extending from the flank to the back knee, providing for greater agility and length of stride. Maus have been clocked running more than 30 mph 

Maus often possess very musical voices. They are known to chirp, chortle, and emit other distinctly unusual vocalizations when stimulated. Another behaviour, quite common in happy Maus, has been described as "wiggle-tail." 

Spoticus has had mild cat flu which he caught from mum, but he was too busy exploring to be ill and is fine now. He has been wormed, is litter trained and is eating kitten food and will be treated with an Advocate (flea, wormer & ear mite combi spot on) prior to going to his new home.

The Adoption fee for Spoticus is £375 and this will go towards the mum`s medical bills and any surplus will be used to helping other cats. Please note NEMCRUK (Native Egyptian Mau Cat Rescue UK) is run by just a few unpaid volunteers and adoption fees never include the cost of daily feeding, litter, equipment or welfare of the cats. 

Spoticus will be available to go to his new home from Saturday 7th March

Loki, named after the Norse God of mischief, doesn't live up to his name! Once a stray, Loki is now happy in his foster home. He is a large, friendly boy, adventurous and curious about the world but also very loving. He's waiting for that special person to choose him; in the meantime there is lots of exploring to be done!


Sabrina is a beautiful little girl, about 2 years old. Her markings are very attractive with the dark tortie being almost black. She is a people cat but is not happy in the company of all the other cats in her foster  home and keeps herself away from them. She would suit a home with only one or no other cats. 

Sabrina takes herself for a walk around the block every day, so after a period of being indoors to get used to her new surroundings would appreciate being given outdoor freedom.


Millie & Sophie

Millie, the white female is 7 years old. She is a lively friendly girl in good health. Millie hasn't taken well to a new puppy that has been introduced into the household. The owners don't want to part with the puppy and feel it is best that Millie is re-homed. Millie is great with people, likes to go outside, although she sticks to the garden. She is happy with a quiet life. 

Sophie, Millie's companion, is friendly and enjoyed peace and quiet. It would be nice if the two could go together as Millie has known Sophie all her life. Sophie is tolerant of the puppy, so it is more important that Millie is re-homed. 

Both cats are Neutered

Mr Tibbs

Handsome, neutered, Mr Tibbs is a large, rangy black lad. He lost his home last year when his owner was taken into care. He was stressed at first, in his foster home, but now has settled and become a calm and easygoing cat. He is sociable and confident with other cats.
