A woman from Hatfield who has taken care of over 250 kittens has appealed for help looking after her latest new borns.

Rose (Rosanna) Thorpe has been hand-rearing kittens for over 10 years and has looked after approximately 250 in that time.

But sadly her latest kitten Merlin died at the weekend.

"He passed away in the early hours of the morning. I am heartbroken," Rosanna said on Monday.

But she is undeterred and will continue to raise four other new born kittens that need her help now.

"I ask you only if you're able to please donate however small, it will all go to little Merlin's care and rehabilitation that he is going to need over the next few months."

You can donate by searching Just Giving for 'Rosanna Thorpe'.
