Cristina's furry clients.
Hi, I'm Cristina!
My favourite quote remains "until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened" - Anatole France. In my care, your pet will be cared for and loved like it is my own!! With 3 cats of my own, my volunteer work at the SPCA, and my active involvement in animal welfare, my purpose in life is to help animals. There is something so special that eminates from the eyes of an animal; for me it is magical and when I look into their vulnerable eyes, all I want to do is protect them.
If you are looking for a very caring and responsible individual who puts QUALITY over quantity, search no more! My personalized service is based on two things, Pet Care & Home Care. My visits consist of feeding, water change, litter cleaning, administering medications and of course spending quality time with your fur baby (playing, brushing, cuddling, dog walk). Upon request, I will also bring in your mail, water your indoor plants, turn on/off lights, etc... So not only is your feline friend fully cared for, but so is your home!
I am currently servicing the following areas from east to west:
Pointe aux Trembles, Rivière des Prairies, Anjou, Montreal North, St.Leonard, Ahuntsic, Villeray/St.Michel, La Petite Patrie/Rosemont.
** I will also consider other areas (TMR, Outremont...) so do not hesitate to ask**
I have been a dedicated volunteer at the SPCA of Montreal for 3 years. I am on the cat socialization team and in addition to the basic care of cleaning the cages, feeding them, and playing with them, a great amount of my time is spent socializing them.

Cristina was a fabulous caretaker of Rusty! She sent us updates and photos/videos of their daily visits and kept us informed on his mood and energy. Her rapport with Rusty made us feel very secure in leaving him in her care, she is clearly very knowledgable about cats and obviously takes joy in caring for them. I would re-hire and recommend Cristina without hesitation!
First time with Pawshake and it was a great experience with Christina. She answered my request quickly and communicated promptly. My cat is getting old and doesn't like the disruption of us going away. For the first time when we returned he seemed calm and not anxious. The box and area were clean, garbage was out and kitchen was in order. I would definitely recommend Christina to anyone looking for a responsible and mature sitter.
Chritina was excellent with my cats. She is very conscientious and in tune with cats. Right away she realized that Bartholomew needed time to adjust to her presence in the house. Christina mindful of Bartholomews needs approached him carefully until he was comfortable in her presence and allowed her to pet him. Christina was also able to give Lady Jane her insuline shot twice a day without difficulty. Of course Charlie was over the moon every time she pet him he even climbed all over her while she was sleeping.
Christina sent regular phones and updates every day which kept me in touch with my cats.
Even my neighbor who also has a cat appreciated Christina's presence. You can not have a better cat sitter than Christina, she even played classical music for my cats.
