Jodie Marsh can barely eat because she is so sick with worry that her new kitten is going to die.

The 38-year-old former glamour model decided to give a home to a cat that had been found abandoned in a bush on a farm with her brothers and sisters, and after discovering her new pet was a girl she named the bundle of joy Babycat.

The little moggie had been settling in well Jodie's other animals but things took a turn for the worse when Babycat broke her right leg and became very ill in the wake of the injury.

The young animal is being kept at the vet's under observation and to be treated and Jodie spent most of Saturday (28.10.17) with her poorly Babycat who, like her owner, is not eating properly due to her condition.

In a blog post on her official website JodieMarsh.com, she revealed: ''I am literally in a living hell!!!! Yesterday's visit to Babycat was so traumatic. I can't bear to see animals suffering or in pain and my poor little baby is so sick. I don't know what to do with myself. I'm walking around like a zombie in between working and visiting her. I can't focus on anything properly. It's best that I keep busy but my head is just all over the place. The other night it got to 9.30pm and I realised I had eaten all day and had no food in the house. So i rushed up to my local kebab shop and grabbed a portion of cheesy chips. I got them home (by now it's 10pm and I'm STARVING) and popped them in the microwave to melt the cheese a little and as I carried them back to the table I tripped and dropped them cheese down on the floor. FML... this one sums up my life at the moment. All I could do was laugh. It was laugh or cry at that moment and I knew if I started crying I wouldn't stop.

''Yesterday Babycat's temperature had come back to normal but she looked worse than ever. she was so lethargic and all she wanted to do was sleep on me. She wouldn't eat at all. When I left the vet called me to say that she had just been sick and the vet said she was really worried about her. There was also some cat litter in her sick which suggests she's been eating her cat litter??!!!! I felt horrendous. (sic)''

Committed animal lover Jodie - who also has cats Spider and Bobcat and several dogs - is very worried that Babycat won't make a recovery and will die.

The former 'Celebrity Big Brother' star is ''keeping everything crossed'' that she'll pull through.

Posting on Twitter, she revealed: ''Just got back from the vets. Babycat definitely looks brighter today but her temperature still fluctuating. Keeping everything crossed!

''I feel sick. Her temp is back down but she's very poorly still & wont eat (sic)''

In July, Jodie was left grief-stricken when her beloved bulldog Louie died, and even though as a ''fur baby mummy'' she knew he ''didn't have long left'' his death left a massive hole in her life.

The star had needed to resuscitate him on several occasions when he was choking.
