Rose Cottage Cattery - FAQ

You will find below a number of questions we are asked on a regular basis regarding our Cattery. If you do not find the answer you are looking for, please feel free to contact us, we will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Payment Terms

Can I view your Cattery at anytime?

You are more than welcome to come and view but please contact us to make an appointment in advance during our normal opening hours.

What if I’m not happy with something?

If you are not happy, please let us know so that we may address your concerns as quickly as possible.

My cat has a mealtime routine for health reasons, can you honour this?

Meal times are twice each day, but if your cat needs small meals often this is catered for, young kittens and the very old would normally be fed three times, but if your cat needs small meals simply let us know at the time of booking, or when you and your cat arrives at our cattery

Are your Cattery Units cleaned regularly?

Our units are cleaned, disinfected and sprayed with a feline friendly virucide prior to your cats arrival and then freshened on a daily basis.

Is there a limit to the maximum number of cats per unit?

Cats from the same family can share a unit up to a maximum of 3 in a Treble Unit and upto 8 cats in the Family Unit.

Can they go outside when they want to?

Open or Closed Runs at night

The cat's owners are asked if they want their cat to have access to the outside run at night. We also have outside doors to cover the cat flaps, which prevents any draft on the windy, Winter nights.

Should I bring bedding or toys with me?

Freshly laundered cosy bedding can be supplied but please feel free to bring along your cats favorite toys and blankets as the familiar smells will help to reassure and comfort your cat.

What times will I need to drop her off and pick her up?

Arrival and departure times are; Monday to Saturday, 8.00am to 11.30am and 4.00pm to 6.30pm and Sunday, 10.00am to 12.00am and 4.00pm to 6.30pm. Public holidays as per Sunday hours.

If we are delayed collecting her will she be able to stay in the same Unit?

If you are delayed for any reason, please let us know as soon as possible. We will try to leave your cat in the same unit where booking commitments allow.

My cat is currently on medication will you be able to administer these to her?

Medication of any sort ie, tablets, liquid can all be administered during her stay. We do not inject cats so if this is necessary we will require prior warning. All other medical conditions must be explained at time of booking.

Pam, Robert and Paddy by the Isolation unit

Do you have an isolation unit?

We expect cats to arrive in good health, however Rose Cottage Cattery does have an isolation unit

To safeguard the health of all cats boarded, we will only accept cats that have up to date vaccinations for the duration of the whole stay and are in good health. Should it be considered necessary, veterinary attention is assured and any treatment prescribed by a Vet will be continued during the cat’s stay.
