Miaa-ow many cats?
It’s certainly moggy mayhem at Silvana Valentino Locke’s home.
Accoridng to a report in the Mirror, she has 52 cats lucky enough to have the run of her four-bedroom house while a further 40 live at the bottom of her garden and another 30 in a neighbouring field.
She forks out £90,000 a year to have her pets fed, watered and their every need attended to by four live-in staff at her home and rescue centre.
But she’s not the traditional cat-loving spinster, the Mirror reports – she’s a 55-year-old mum-of-two with a husband of 32 years.
Hubby Tony puts up with her compulsion and provides nearly half the cash she needs to support her feline family. The rest comes from donations, fundraising drives and the charity shop she set up four years ago.
Pig litter-ally surprises rescuers
A pig rescued by the RSPCA after she was found roaming the countryside has given birth to a litter of seven piglets in her happy new home.
The seven piglets came as a surprise to the new owners of rescue pig Charlotte. They said the piglets are now doing well and are all strong and healthy.
Charlotte, a small crossbreed, was collected by RSPCA officers after several callers had reported sighting a ‘mysterious, dark beast’ roaming around the countryside in Eston Hill, Middlesbrough.
