After working as a veterinary technician for the last 25 years, it’s time for a change of pace. My name is Keri Basher, owner of My Pet Sitter. With such a strong passion for taking care of pets, doing it in the comfort of their own homes is the perfect environment for me! Pet sitting is something I have enjoyed doing during my career, taking care of everything from dogs and cats, to chickens, goats, horses and donkeys. I’ve even had roosters chasing me around! I’m looking forward to my new path, giving me more flexibility while at the same time fulfilling my need to care for your pets like they are my own.
A graduate of Michigan State University, I moved to the Lake Norman area in 2010 from Michigan with my husband of 20 years and our 4 legged kids. We have 3 kids, all rescues. Autumn is a 13 year old Jack Russell, who is best friends with Darwin, our 11 year old Westie. We also have a Siamese cat, Keeper who is 8.
When I’m not taking care of your pets, you can find me reading my kindle, spending time outdoors, road trips to the mountains exploring the beautiful scenery, relaxing with my husband and kids, and hanging out with friends. I also enjoy pottery, making gifts for my friends and family on my wheel and firing it in my kiln.
Not only am I compassionate about pets, but I have the medical background for all your needs, whether it is giving insulin injections, subcutaneous fluids, oral medications or eye drops, these procedures will be done with the fear free methods I have learned as a veterinary techncian.
I am here to give you peace of mind while you are unable to be with your pets. I will treat them as if they are my own and give them compassionate and quality care they deserve. Dependable and trustworthy, your pets will barely know you're away!
