About Roya

I have always loved every type of animal. I have a MSc in Zoology to prove it! Additionally, in the past, I have worked as animal caretakers in scientific, zoological, and simply personal capacities. I have personally owned dogs, cats, snakes, turtles, lizards, fish, frogs, and salamanders, and have petsit all of those plus even more reptiles.

I'd have to say my greatest achievement to date was my cat. We adopted him without knowing that he was hit by a car sometime in his past. He had a broken diaphragm and was just a mess internally because of it. But, with lots of surgeries, road trips, medicines, bandages, snuggles, all the love in the world, and his fierce fighter spirit, we got him through all of it, complete diaphragm and all. He even made the Huffington Post! Sadly, complications from that crash got the better of him years and lives later, but through all of that, I learned lots of simple veterinary procedures, so I can help with your own high maintenance furry bundle.

I love dogs and would love to take them for a run to tire them out while you're stuck away. I'm also pretty skilled in cat care and snuggling. I can care for any pet if you are gone for longer than a few hours and they need a friend in your absence. I can offer dog sitting, cat sitting, dog and cat care, aquarium maintenance, bird care, any type of animal care, really. Any animal size or age is fine. I cannot offer boarding however, because I live in a shared house.

*I do work part time outside the home, (about 3 days a week) and will also need to occasionally walk/visit other animals. So please be aware that I cannot spend 24 hr/day with your fur baby. But I will be there as much as I can.*

Otherwise just drop me a line and we'll try to set things up! Can't wait to meet you and your loved one(s)!

I have experience with rescues (wildlife and domestic), anxiety, puppies/kittens, older animals, and more.

Roya was great with my cats. She sent me updates with photos daily. The cats looked happy while under her care. Thanks for looking after my babies, Roya. I highly recommend her cat sitting service.

Roya was wonderful! I left my two older but very energetic dogs with her for their first time ever, and they were so happy with her! She did an awesome job and I would highly recommend her to anyone!
