Rosie Blankenship

Mamacita Shields

2011 ~ May 27, 2018

Mamacita was born somewhere in Flint Hill and was rescued by the Shields family.  She loved to wrestle and snuggle with her Dad; also to sit on your feet.  Mamacita enjoyed playing with her bones and a rubber tire outside.  Her special trick was making peanut butter disappear!  Mamacita cherished life and all it had to offer by laying down in front of the basement door watching and looking for bunnies and squirrels; watching us in the kitchen while cooking; going for car rides and hiking.

Lilah Jenkins

Lilah was adopted from the SPCA as a kitten in 2003.  She lived the life of a princess and made the rules of the house!  Lilah loved to eat, sleep and play with feathers on a string; and to snack on some catnip.  When her mommy would say prayers, Lilah would stick her paw in her mommy’s mouth.  She always gave Nicole kisses, making her lips raw.  Lilah loved to talk; meowing for someone to listen.

Baby Girl Jarrell





02/12/2013 -










Baby Girl was mistreated and beaten when she came to me.  I taught her how to be loved and she became very protective of me. 

She loved to play with her best toy, a puppy dog; however her favorite was to play in the snow with her nose.   She also enjoyed chasing a laser light, playing ball and trying to catch bubbles.

Her sister, Gracie, passed away on June 07, 2017. In the picture, Amy is on the left and Gracie is on the right. 

Amy left us on February 19, 2018 in Winchester, Virginia. She was 13 years, 6 months old.
