About Us

The Bluecat opened in July 2016 and is owned and managed by Maxine Timmis with support from Cath Willcox.

Our aim is to provide your cats with a stimulating and relaxing environment. We care for your cats ourselves, ensuring continuity and enabling all the residents to become familiar with us.

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

It has been purpose-built meeting all the latest standards for design and licensing for boarding cats. Following recent changes to the licensing laws, The Bluecat has been awarded 5 stars by the local authority, the highest achievable level.

There are 14  chalets which can house up to 2 cats from the same family.  Some of the chalets are interconnecting to create family-sized ones which can house up to 4.

Maxine 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 6 resident cats at home.

Cath currently works for the NHS as the Information Governance Manager at Royal Papworth Hospital in Cambridgeshire. Cath is also an animal lover!
