Welcome to Sirius Pet Care! I'm Mickey Borders, owner of Sirius Pet Care... I'm the ugly one on the right, on our home page!
While working in sales with lots of traveling, I found that finding a place for my pets to stay was stressful for them and me. Kennels were not appealing because of the possibility of illness, injury and lack of personal attention, along with the inconvenience of dropping off and picking up my pets. Friends and family sometimes would help but it was a burden for them and I usually had to bring my pets to them. I deciding to use a professional pet sitter after realizing that most pets are happier, healthier, more relaxed, and well-behaved staying in a familiar environment.
I had a difficult time finding a qualified, reliable, professional pet sitter that I was comfortable with. That’s when I decided to use my ability to bond with animals to provide the service I had been looking for!
I grew up with dogs and cats, along with fish and assorted other pets. I have always had animals in my house and feel that they are part of the family. In addition to spoiling my dog Tera, I enjoy camping, fly fishing, and playing drums.

Kris I grew up in Colorado and have always had a love and passion for animals. As a child all I ever wanted was to be around and with animals, from dogs and cats to horses, birds, really any animals! I have continued that passion through life. I started in high school working as dog groomer and from there I was hooked. I went to college to study marine biology at UH. I worked at the Denver aquarium, and continued expanding my knowledge and love. Eventually I settled into working at vet hospitals. I had a passion for pets and found a home at Harrison memorial animal hospital. I work there for a few years until I became pregnant with my son. At that time I moved from working with animals to raising my son. After many years at home taking on my biggest challenge of mom, I wanted to go back to doing what I love. I found Sirius and it was the perfect fit. I could still spend time with animals and do what I love, and continue to be a mom. The nice part is the happy wags and love I get back daily from the pets I get to see! In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, skiing (water and snow), and music.
