Here at Crossways, we’re most definitely cat people.

Dog people, too. But most definitely, we love cats as much as you do. While you’re away on holiday, or for work, perhaps you’d prefer not to ask your neighbour or friend to feed your cat. It’s a hassle, and to be fair, cats do enjoy company; like most of us, they experience loneliness, too.

We’re here to remove your cat concerns.

Crossways provides a safe, warm, secure and enclosed environment for individual cats. Or, for cats from the same family who are familiar with each other. In other words, your beloved puss will be secure. Safely gathered in, with no opportunity to get lost – or worse, come to harm in the great beyond.

Facilities and On-Boarding

We’re here to look after your cat in the same way that you would do; with lots of love, attention and an in-depth understanding of the unique quirkiness and sometimes eccentric things that cats sometimes do.

Talk to us about their:

  • Food, and whether they need any special diets
  • Medication, if relevant
  • Toilet routines
  • Personalities and traits

This in-depth questionnaire, before you go away, helps us to cater carefully and precisely to your cat, enabling you to switch off, down tools, kick back and relax on holiday – with complete trust in the skills and experience of the staff looking after him or her.

Our staff are not only highly qualified and trained, there’s a high staff-to-cat ratio for some extra special attention, playing and stroking.  Equally, there are scratching posts, and places for them to squeeze themselves into – should they so desire. Also, our guests have comfortable beds with fleeces and litter trays.

However, you’re welcome to bring along some familiar items or toys, and food if you think that your pet will find it comforting.

Nutrition and Care

We stock high-quality range of cat food, and will ensure that plenty of fresh water is left out for them to drink.

Daily, our team will make full physical checks, and should we spot something amiss that needs prompt attention, will book an appointment with your vet, let you know the complete picture, and keep you up to speed.

We also have a working partnership with locally based Priory Vets.

Does your cat need regular medication? No problem at all, we’re happy to cater to this, with meds for diabetes, epilepsy, and so on. Should medication be required, this can be given by a member of our non-veterinary qualified team.

Vaccinations & medication

We’re completely devoted to the health and welfare of all the animals in our care.

Therefore, before you bring your cat to us, please ensure that he or she is fully vaccinated and that you can produce a current vaccination certificate.

Vaccinations save lives, and their importance is key. Do talk to us with any questions you may have. You may be surprised; a single vaccination is not enough, and you will need to have your cat protected in this way regularly.
