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



PLEASE DON'T FORGET OUR OLDER CATS WHO ARE CONSTANTLY OVERLOOKED - THEY MIGHT NOT BE AS CUTE AS A FLUFFY KITTEN BUT THEY ARE LOVING AND GENTLE AND SO DESERVE WONDERFUL HOMES IN WHICH TO SEE OUT THEIR RETIREMENT YEARS.

THEY DON'T ASK MUCH - A WARM LAP, SOME NICE FOOD AND A RUB BEHIND THE EARS - COULDN'T YOU SQUEEZE JUST ONE MORE IN??


PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AT OUR GOLDEN OLDIES ON THE 'SENIOR KITTIZENS' PAGE.


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.

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.

Heather

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.

Butch

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.

Kea

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!

Neutered, chipped and vaccinated

Lola

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.

Polo & her Daughter Poppy

Two beautiful white girls with teddy bear ears looking for a forever home.  Mother and daughter, mum is semi long haired with one green and one blue eye and daughter short haired. See below..
They are 7 and 6 and have recently had their tips of ears removed as a preventative measure due to sunbathing without their sun cream on!  They have stitches in their ears at present but healing quickly and vet is happy with them. They are fully vaccinated, chipped and neutered.  Quite shy to start with but once they come around both love to sit on your lap and have a good head rub.  
They are currently living with their friend, Bobby (black cat in Hanham on the website) and all get on well together so could either go to their forever home as a 3, 2 or individually.  Would probably be best living in a household without young children as can get a little scared of quick movements and loud noises but they are getting better all the time.  All three would make a great addition to any home as they are very well behaved.

Polo (Mum)  sprawled out shortly after having ear tips removed - look at that lovely fluffy tummy

HATTIE & HETTY

Hattie and Hetty were born outside and not handled at all by people so came into foster very scared and wary.

Their foster mum has worked her magic and they now sit on her lap and purr their little heads off. They'll always be a bit shy but will bond very strongly with their owners; they love to play just like any other 6 months kittens though!

Mr Tibbs and Dinky

Mr Tibbs and Dinky are like an old married couple, inseparable, they had spent most of their lives living outdoors. Loved and fed by neighbours on the street but nowhere to call home. Now in with a foster home they've found their favourite spot on the sofa and haven't looked back since.

Mr Tibbs is a big softy who loves a belly rub. He keeps an eye out for Dinky and will curl up with her and sleep all day long. Dinky is best friends with Mr Tibbs, she loves to head bop and follow him around.

They were both shy when they first arrived but just some love and attention, they've become lovely sweet natured cats. They can be a little jumpy at times but are happy with visitors and will play without biting or claws. They'd love a quiet garden in a home with older children.

Dinky is about 4 years old and Mr Tibbs a little older; they were rehomed once and settled in a treat but unfortunately the new owners had to take another cat on a few weeks later and Mr Tibbs wouldn't accept her so they had to come back into foster.

BEING HOME CHECKED

Scribble

Sweet Scribble is 5 years old and a little shy; he needs a quieter home and some time to settle and then he'll be a friendly, cuddly little soul.
He likes to go outside so a nice, safe location would be good and not too many other cats about as he will yell at them! 

We did rehome him but we weren't told his new owner also fed several strays and poor Scribble felt under siege when they camped out on his doorstep and stared at him through the patio doors!

Neutered,  chipped, vaccinated

Maestro

Maestro, lovely older gent looking for a retirement home with a garden to potter around in.
He's very vocal - we think he has a bit of Oriental in there somewhere! He's very sweet and affectionate and lives happily with other confident cats but can be bossy with timid cats and he's a bit vacant at times bless him; not the sharpest tool in the box by any means but very loveable all the same! 

Maestro is about 14 years old and just wants a quieter home to relax in.
Neutered, chipped,vaccinated and vet checked.

Lilly 

Lilly is a lovely girl. She is sweet, affectionate and playful, and loves to be loved. She is fine with children, but has been very downtrodden at home with another cat, so would very much like to be an only pampurred puss. She will reward you with headbumps and purrs:)


Lilly is four years old. She is spayed, chipped, and fully vaccinated. All she needs now is her forever home. If Lilly is just the cat for you please contact:

Olivia

Sweet, gentle girl looking for a retirement home with a soft lap, lots of attention and a garden to potter around in.

Olivia is older than we first thought at 10-12 years and has recently had a dental and health check.

She would prefer a quiet home and she'll put up with other cats but would much prefer to be an only spoiled girl.

Evie

Evie is a beautiful 3 year old black and white cat who was found abandoned in a bin bag with her kittens.  She is a very easy going cat who isn't fazed by anything like loud noises or strangers. She likes affection when she feels like it but she isn't a lap cat. She loves to sunbathe, play with her scratch tower and most of all loves her food!  She uses her litter tray and really is an easy cat to look after, however she would love to be able to go exploring outside. Evie has lived with a toddler and is fine with children; her owner had to move and couldn't take Evie with her unfortunately.


Neutered,  chipped and had first vaccination.

Sooty

Handsome young lad of about 2 who came into us scared and hiding. His fostermum has done a great job with him and he now enjoys head bumps and fuss especially tickles under his chin!

He's so much more confident now and needs a new home where he can continue to improve; a nice, quiet home and maybe another friendly, playful young cat who can show him the ropes and chase him around the garden.

Tigerlily

Tigerlily  is a very beautiful tabby, but it's quite hard to get shots of her looking relaxed as she doesn't much like the camera! 
She came to us as a stray from mid  Wales and was incredibly nervous and shy, and used to hiss and growl at us. She used to hide all day and come out at night when we were in bed. So she's made massive progress, she is much more happy and relaxed, she sleeps on the armchair and comes up to meet new people when they come over. She is a very chirpy, chatty cat, very good at conversation, especially when she thinks it is dinner time again!
 She loves being stroked, but not sitting on laps...yet. She has a very, very gentle sweet nature, and has been an exemplary mum to her 5 kittens. She's been very gentle with my two children (aged 4 and 6) but is still wary when they are being noisy. I think she would be fine in a house with older (more peaceful!?) children, or all adults.

Being neutered and chipped soon.

BEING HOME CHECKED

Izzie and Ellie

Izzy (Black and White) and Ellie (Tabby) are sisters who turned 4 years old on May 1st.
Although they have always been together, they're not particularly close so they would be ok to go to separate homes if need be.
They are both friendly and affectionate cats but they are also very fond of their own space. 
Izzy loves to curl up on the end of the bed for a snooze and loves using her scratch post. Ellie prefers to either hide away in the airing cupboard or stretch out on the sofa to sleep, depending on her mood, and loves to mooch about in the great outdoors.
Both cats are scared of small children and loud noises, and are not keen on other animals so they would be better placed in a quiet home with someone who can give them plenty of cuddles and attention. They are quite timid at first but will warm up to any new faces relatively quickly.
They have always lived in a quiet area which means they are not used to busy roads and lots of traffic.

James

James is a neutered male cat, microchipped and a lovely black and white tuxedo British short hair. 7 years old.
He is a very loving cat, a little shy and nervous so would prefer a quieter home. He enjoys being outside, sunbathing and evening cuddles in front of the TV - he's easily pleased!  He would like to be an only cat and have that lap all to himself.

Waiting for foster space

Purdie Persian

Purdie Persian settled in with us very quickly; as soon as she arrived she ate a full pouch of food and make herself at home on our laps for the evening. She’s a lovely cat who enjoys lots of attention, scratching her post, playing with toys, grooming and behaves very well in the house (using tray and not scratching furniture etc). 

She purrs non stop and is just a happy little girl!


Neutered,  chipped, about 3 years old.

Marmaduke

Awaiting Picture

Gorgeous super friendly ginger and white boy about 2 years old; left behind when his owners moved. 

Marm loves attention and fuss and would be fine with children as he's such a softy. We've not cat - tested him yet but will do soon!

Neutered,  chipped,  FIV/FeLV negative.

Princess

Beautiful 7 year old fluffball who is sweet and affectionate but, like a lot of cats, will tell you when she's had enough. She was given up by her owner as she was stressed by the young children in the family so she'd like a quieter home now please, 
Princess is living happily in foster with other cats so wouldn't mind if there was a gentle puss in her new home already; she likes a potter around the garden but doesn't tend to go too far.

Marvin

Marvin is a gorgeous boy who loves being brushed and made a fuss of and will sleep under the duvet with you if he's allowed! He's chilled and friendly and fine with children but hates other cats so must be an only one. 
He was rehomed but unfortunately has had to come back as the daughter in the family was hugely allergic to him.

Neutered and chipped, 10 years old, had a vet check and recent dental.
Redfield

Sasha

Sasha is an older cat ( we were told she's 4 but she looks more like 8-10 years)who came into rescue as her owner couldn't look after her anymore. She was very timid at first but eventually came out from under the sofa and is great company loving attention and snuggles. Sasha would be happiest in a quiet household as she hides when it is noisy. She is a very gentle, placid lady who would like to ge an only puss on her new home.She has got arthritis in her spine so is on long term metacam which BWCR can help with the cost of if necessary.

Neutered Mangotsfield

Aslan

Gorgeous Aslan is a real snugglebunny who loves attention and cuddles.
He's 4-5 years , very chilled and laid back so would be good with children but we've not had chance to cat-test him yet.

Neutered, chipped,  FIV/FeLV negative 
Staple Hill

Sasha 2

Pretty, gentle little girl who is shy to begin with and will need a few days to settle. Once she does though, she's a sweetie who likes cuddles and attention. She's fine with older children but may find younger ones a bit too much and she was living previously with three other cats so should be ok with a gentle, feline friend.

18 Months old

Minnie the Minx

Minnie is a gorgeous, mischievous young cat, and a bundle of fun. She always has a look on her face that suggests she's looking for trouble! She is boisterous, communicative, and extremely affectionate, with bags of purrsonality.
Minnie loves to be cradled, and cuddled like a baby, especially if you're reading a book in bed. She loves to sit on the laptop, and make you take a break from work. She loves to sleep on the bed at night. She really just loves to be loved! Oh, and she loves her food, especially cooked fish! She eats like a hungry dog:-)
Minnie is a bit of a diva though, and her love of human affection has made her very jealous of her humans other cat, who was there first. She really does need to be an only pampered puss, in a home where she can enjoy all the attention. 
Minnie loves her scratching post, and the stair carpet too, though her current owner thinks this is territorial.
Minnie is about two years old. She is spayed, chipped, and fully vaccinated.

Bella

My name is Bella and I am 7 years old. I am neutered. I like sitting on windowsills and watching the world go by. I like being indoors in the winter and outside in the summer, much like you humans. I am house trained as I stay in at night. I am friendly and like to be stroked but sometimes I am a bit nervous and can tell you when I've had enough so I'd prefer not to be homed with little humans please. 
I am not a fussy eater and I like chasing toys that move and catching ribbons. My owner has gone to live abroad so I am staying with her parents who are kindly trying to find me a new home. Thank you

Sam

Sam is a lovely boy. He's about four years old, and definitely has some Siamese/Oriental blood. He's very chatty, bright and affectionate, and follows you round like a dog:)
Sam is a little jumpy on occasion and can hiss when startled, but soon realises everything's ok. He needs a quiet home, with no other pets or children, so he can relax and chill out.
Keep an eye on your dinner though. He loves human food....a lot:)


Easton

Salem

Salem is just under 2, neutered, chipped but not up to date with booster. She's very laid back and friendly and fine with other cats and children. Salem is mainly a house cat but does go out into enclosed garden sometimes but won't have any road sense!

Kasi

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 nemcruk@hotmail.com

CATS IN WALES 

Loki

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!


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.


Bella

​This is 4 year old Bella (above), a neutered female. She is very friendly and lives with Bailey (below). She has to be rehomed because of a change in her owner's circumstances.


Tim

​Tim is black male, about a year or two old, as yet unneutered, and who has been around for about three months. He is a friendly boy, desperate to come indoors, but the person feeding him has three other cats who don't like Tim. He is going in for neutering shortly and will have a health check. Being a plain black lad, poor old Tim doesn't have the same visual appeal as a more coloured cat but it's personality that counts, at the end of the day. Tim is chatty, friendly and needs a home!
