Thanks for your interest in our Cattery. Millwood

is a combination of McMillen & Woodsend.

Here at Millwood we endeavor to make your

cats stay here, enjoyable, happy, comfortable

and safe. Every cat is given the very best of care

and attention possible, but we are always ready to

listen to comments, recommendations or helpful

criticisms. We like to know as much as possible

about your cat/s to enable him/her to settle in here

quickly, especially if it is their first visit.



Some customers, after visiting the Cattery, like

to make a request for a particular pen. We will

do our best to make this possible but it cannot be

guaranteed at peak holiday times. We must also

point out that the holding pen may have to be used

for your cat,e.g.on cross over days. one in one out.


All cats must be neutered or

spayed. Customers will be required to produce an

up to date Vac’ certificate, ideally booster vac’

should be completed 14 days before the first day

of boarding. We reserve the right to refuse any cat

that hasn’t this criteria.



It is important that we know his/her likes

and dislikes in their food and in advance if on a

special diet. We have found that this causes less

stress to feed exactly the food they have been used

to. We always keep a stock of various dried and

canned food but arrangements can easily be made.



We provide all bedding but some

customers like to bring their own. We believe this

is a good idea, it possibly helps, as some thing

from home may settle them in more quickly.

Don’t forget though, all pens, have in the winter,

heater pads, or lamps, so to benefit, please just a

small blanket or a old jumper of yours.



This is not a problem; we will

give all types of medication, including diabetic

insulin injections. Advance notice of the cat’s

requirements is useful, but not essential.


Ruddington Vets.

Your own Vet will be advised and kept up to date.

We will keep all Vet treatment to a minimum but

will ensure the well being of your pet.


The Boarding Cattery and Rescue

Pens were designed and built by my husband,

Dave, and opened in July 1994. by A.Hickling MRCVS

It was designed as a Cattery WE would like our

own cats to go to. The Cattery has only10 double

and 2 treble pens, a holding and an isolation pen

which all licensed catteries must have. We can

give far more individual attention to all the cats in

our care, (compared to the larger Catteries.)

Millwood is Central Heated, Air Conditioned &

has air-cooling units.

Open all year. Inspection is invited but please note

all Viewing & Rescue Adoptions are by

appointment only. For more information see our

website. To book see back page.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
