Brighton's only
vet-run cattery

If you're looking for a Brighton cattery to look after your pet, choose Coastway cattery, Brighton's first vet-run facility. We have a convenient city centre location, modern, spacious pens and are fully licensed by Brighton & Hove City Council. Based at Coastway's Kemp Town premises on Freshfield Business Park, our cattery has been purpose built to board cats in comfort. The standard walk-in pens are head height and roomy enough for two cats should you want to board cats from the same household. 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 if required.

The Brighton boarding cattery with 24 hour medical care

Like other quality cattery/kennel owners we are pleased to be able to offer medical boarding. But sharing our building with Coastway's out-of-hours Vetcall service, means unlike other boarding catteries Sussex wide, we have the reassurance of veterinary assistance nearby, 24-hours a day.

Our veterinary staff also give every cat a free health check prior to boarding to check for signs of infection. At this time all cats must be able to present a current vaccination certificate to include vaccinations for Feline Infectious Enteritis and Cat Flu. Worming and flea treatments must also be up to date. We can't accept cats who's vaccinations aren't up to date, so please double check this before booking with us.

Brighton cattery with a personal touch

Board your cat with us and it will also 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 19 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. Our current prices are £14 a day for a single cat, £22.25 for two cats sharing and £30 for three cats in one of our large family pens. There’s a 50% surcharge for bank holidays and an extra £2 per day fo cats meeting oral medications or tablets giving during their stay. Any cats that need a high level of medical care including daily injections are charged an extra £5 a day. If your cat is on any medication, please ensure you provide us with enough for the duration of their stay.


Bookings can be made by telephone or in person at our Kemp Town reception. We share pictures of your cat via our Facebook page if requested but we ask you not to request bookings via this page as messages can be missed. We charge a small deposit when you book to secure your cat's stay.

All cats need to be up to date with vaccinations, which includes annual boosters for cat flu and feline enteritis. Clients that are not registered with Coastway Vets will need to have an up-to-date vaccination card on arrival. This is a legal requirement, so any cats that have overdue vaccinations will be refused entry to the cattery.

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.
