About Us

The Bluecat opened in June 2016 and is run under the loving care of Maxine Timmis (owner) and Cath Willcox. We provide top quality care and personal attention for your cats in a safe, stress free countryside location.

Our aim is to provide your cats with a stimulating and relaxing environment to enjoy whilst they are away from home. We do not employ any other staff and simply care for your cats ourselves, ensuring continuity and enabling all the residents to become familiar with us (and our resident cats!).

The cattery is located on a quiet village road, in the heart of the Bedfordshire countryside, ideal for a feline retreat!

The cattery is purpose built so meets all the latest standards for design and licensing for boarding cats. We have 14 standard chalets. The standard chalets can house up to 2 cats and the interconnecting chalets create a family-sized one which can house up to 4.

Maxine has previously worked in clinical research for over 20 years but it was always her dream to run a small, luxury cattery. Maxine loves all animals, especially cats and has 5 resident cats at home, three of which were a product of some local cat rescue work after taking in a pregnant stray.

Cath currently works for the NHS as the Information Governance Officer at Papworth Hospital in Cambridgeshire.
