Abi Purser Launched Longcroft in 2010 in response to the fact that she could not find a premium cattery in her area for her own beloved cat, Norman. It was the first boutique cat hotel opened in Welwyn Garden City. Longcroft boasts wrought iron designer cat beds, individually decorated bedroom suites, gourmet menus and grooming services, not to mention a choice of music and a team, whose sole job it is to come in and entertain the feline residents. It sounds to me like the cats are going to have a far better holiday than their owners!
