In the event of illness or injury Rhoden Manor Cattery will make reasonable endeavours to contact the owner or the owner’s representative, prior to any treatment deemed necessary by the cattery veterinary surgeon.  If contact is not possible treatment will take place without the owner’s consent.

Rhoden Manor Cattery reserves the right at its sole discretion to refuse admission to any cats showing signs of illness pending veterinary advice.

Any treatment deemed necessary for the cats comfort and well being e.g. worming or flea treatment, will be carried out at Rhoden Manor Cattery’s discretion and shall be charged to the owner.

Rhoden Manor Cattery will administer medication to manageable cats. However, should there be a risk of harm to cattery staff or to the cat itself, veterinary care may be needed. Except as otherwise set out in these terms and conditions, any veterinary fees incurred will be charged to the owner of the cat.



Boarding rates are charged on a daily basis including the day of arrival and departure and includes food (unless on a specific diet eg; Science Plan, Royal Canin etc) bedding, litter and scratch posts etc.

Full payment is required on arrival of the boarding period. 

Cancellation of/and amendments to the full boarding period within 5 working days of its commencement will require payment of the full boarding fees.

Less than 3 days boarding is permissible but there is a minimum stay fee of £25.00.

Boarding prices are reviewed annually and revised charges are effective from 1st January. Please check prior to booking for the following year. If you do not agree with any price increase that may affect your booking, you are entitled to cancel the booking without penalty.

Rhoden Manor Cattery will use all reasonable endeavours to feed as instructed by the owner. However alternative diets/brands may be fed if the cat is not eating its usual diet.

Cats must be transported in a secure and suitable pet travel carrier.

Rhoden Manor Cattery requires an EMERGENCY contact number for a friend, relative or neighbour should the owner be out of contact. A contact number for a standby collector (if different) should also be provided should the owner be delayed, as we cannot guarantee to be able to board your cat for extra days.
