Excellent service. Thomas took the time to meet and bond with my cat, George, during the interview process before I went on my vacation. I felt very comfortable entrusting my "guy" and my home in their care. I will admit that the funniest part was when I returned home and found a report card and several daily reports regarding George's behavior (i.e. eating/drinking, playing, and toilet maintenance). I was really proud of George because he got a checkmark +. Thank you and I have already recommended their service to my mom.

My Dogs love Thomas! They look forward to having Thomas walk them 5 days a week, an hour plus each walk. When they see his car drive up to the front of the house, my dogs are dancing and singing with excitement! And when the walk is finished they are content and relaxed.

Pet Sitters by the Bay has been a great for me and my dogs. I went through interviewing a few Pet Sitter Companies. I found Thomas to be the best for me and my dogs. The first thing I noticed in the interview processes was the positive interaction between Thomas and my dogs. After our interview, he took my dogs out for a 25 minute test walk. Thomas and the dogs came back with big smiles on their faces. I could not ask for a better dog walker for my 2 very energetic dogs. Border Collie and a Malamute mix.

You will not go wrong with the services from Pet Sitters By The Bay.

I feel very fortunate to have found Thomas. He is personable, extremely thorough, and you can tell that he truly cares about animals. I felt very comfortable leaving my pets in his care, and know that he treated my pets as he would his own. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a pet sitter!

Thomas did an awesome job with my two dogs they enjoyed their meet and greet with him. Thomas left a detailed report of all that was done and how my dogs were. I will use his services again in the future, because I know my dogs will be in great hands.

Pet Sitters By The Bay was the best find for pet care I have found since moving to Bellingham.  Both of my indoor cats were well cared for, played with and happy when I returned from a week long trip.  They are not used to being left alone and I was worried.  Thomas not only cared for my indoor kitties, he also put a can of food out for my outside feral each day.  And the daily diaries were fun to read when I came home.  Each kitties daily journal of what they were doing during his visit.  I would highly recommend this company.  Very professional and friendly!  A great experience and worth every penny.

Thomas was gentle and patient with our shy, withdrawing cat, giving him time to get used to the idea of a stranger in the house. Thomas made sure to be in contact with us every day we were gone to assure us that all was well. And the daily report cards were fun when we returned home.   I will certainly use Pet Sitters by the Bay again any time I need a "babysitter". I highly recommend his service.

Thomas has been a very reliable and detail-oriented dog walker.  Several times we have had to change our plans last minute, and he has always been able to accommodate us.  Our dog really enjoys her walks with Thomas, and we would recommend his services to anyone.

Thomas was very professional and friendly, and did a great job with my cat. He met me for an initial consultation to get to know my pets and fill out paperwork, and my two animals -- even my shy dog who is afraid of everyone -- immediately took to Thomas. The day before my cat sitting appointment, Thomas sent me a confirmation email, and while he was at my place, he did everything we agreed on and even vacuumed around the litter box. He left a cat calendar for me to keep, and emailed me to make sure I was back home and my cat was doing okay. I definitely recommend Pet Sitters by the Bay!

Thomas did an excellent job of taking care of our cat for 12 days while we were traveling.  We came home to a vacuumed house, a happy, contented kitty.  She is even more affectionate than she was before we left.  I attribute some of that to Thomas's TLC.

I would recommend him to anyone wanted a caring, thoughtful, attentive person taking care of their pets.

I was more than satisfied with the loving care given to my two indoor kitties and my outdoors Maine Coon. Thomas met the cats in advance and established a rapport with them. One cat needs daily meds rubbed in his ear and Thomas was very conscientious about this special situation. He contacted me by email with a report shortly before my return and also left daily notes about his interactions. This is definitely a reliable, caring service which I would use again.


Thomas was very professional and took wonderful care of our pets!  We have a cat and a dwarf rabbit.  Thomas came over to feed them, play with them and do some maintenance cleanup every day while we were away (for 8 days).  During that time, he sent us 3 email updates with pictures of our critters, so we had no worries during our trip.  When we returned home, there were detailed notes about what went on during each of his visits (plus some new catnip toys for our kitty!).  He also brought in our mail every day - no extra charge.  Thomas was great and we would recommend him to anyone looking for a pet sitter!  We'll definitely be using his services during our next vacation.

Thomas is incredibly attentive and conscientious. He took care of my two indoor cats, and even cleaned dishes although it wasn't asked of him. I contacted him very last minute and he was still incredibly flexible and took care of the cats still. He is very detail oriented and communicative--I received email updates daily, and he called if there were emergencies. When I returned, I was happy to read his daily reports of the cats behaviors. I highly recommend Pet Sitters by the Bay; they are exceedingly conscientious and good with animals!

I highly recommend Thomas for pet sitting.  He is very professional and conscientious and clearly loves animals.  This was my first time using him and my two cats took to him right away.  Animals are so much happier when they can stay in their own home.  He played with them, cleaned up after them, brought in my mail.  I really enjoyed the email updates and photos he sent me while I was gone.  I especially got a kick out of the report card and daily notes he left!  His gift of calendar and kitty toys was above and beyond what I expected and shows he truly loves his job and cares for his charges.  I would not hesitate to use his services again!
