Brighton’s only vet run cattery

Our Brighton cattery is the only one in the city run by vets and is on site at our Brighton veterinary hospital. It’s recently been awarded five stars by the licensing department at Brighton & Hove City Council for our high standards of care and bespoke facilities. Choosing Coastway Cattery for your cat means that you can be sure it will have the best holiday experience possible during its stay with us.

Being based in the centre of Brighton means it’s just a short journey to us from most homes and our modern, spacious pens are comfortable for individuals and family groups. Our cattery has been purpose built to board cats in comfort, our standard walk-in pens are head height and roomy enough for two cats from the same household to board if desired. We also offer larger family pens suitable for three cats to comfortably share. The entire cattery is air-conditioned for your cats’ comfort and we offer menu choices perfect for most appetites, including prescription diets.

Our Cattery has had to close due to the coronavirus. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

The coronavirus pandemic hasn’t just affected the way we provide veterinary care, it has also unfortunately lead to the closure of our Coastway cattery.

The current travel limitations and uncertainties regarding the holiday industry have meant that people are having to rethink vacations for this year and are putting travel plans on hold. Because of the lack of demand for cattery stays and the on-going issues with social distancing, we’ve decided to close our cattery.

We’d like to thank all our loyal clients who used us over the last few years, we’ll miss you all.

The Brighton boarding cattery with 24 hour medical care

If your cat needs medical boarding, there’s no better cattery for them than ours. Sharing our building with Coastway Vets’ emergency veterinary service, means unlike other boarding catteries across Sussex, we have the reassurance of on site veterinary assistance, 24-hours a day. Our veterinary staff also give every cat a free health check prior to boarding to look for signs of infection.

The Brighton cattery with a personal touch

Board your cat with us and it will benefit from a high staff to cat ratio, guaranteeing it lots of one-to-one attention and plenty of playtime. We can offer this as we only board a maximum of 20 cats at any time, allowing us to provide a high quality of care for your pet.

Essential information

Cat’s can be dropped off and collected from us from 9.30-11am and between 3-5pm.

To make a booking:

  • Call us or pop into our Kemp Town reception. If requested we’re happy to share pictures of your cat via our Facebook page, but we don’t accept bookings through the site.
  • You’ll need to pay a small deposit to secure your cat’s stay.
  • If you’re not a Coastway Vets’ client we’ll need to see a current vaccination certificate showing that your cat is protected against feline infectious enteritis and cat flu, worming and flea treatments must also be up to date. Vaccinations are a legal requirement for boarding, any cats not vaccinated will be refused entry to the cattery, so please double check this before booking with us.
  • We provide a wide range of food, bedding, toys and litter, but you can bring as much or as little from home as your cat needs to be able to enjoy its stay.

Coastway Cattery is Brighton’s first vet-run cattery, conveniently located in the heart of the city.”
