A DYING woman has vowed to barricade herself into her home rather than be parted from her beloved pets by bailiffs.
Jayne Jubb - who is due to be evicted from her March home next month - says she cannot contemplate life without her menagerie of rescue animals.
"I just can't be without them," said a tearful Jayne this week. "I can't get rid of the animals; it would be like someone taking my children away.
"I will barricade myself in if I have to. If we have no where else to go, I don't know what else to do."

Jayne, 48, and her husband Alan, 52, have been served with an eviction notice, and are due to move out of Truman's Farm in Whittlesey Road on October 6.
But Jayne - who is suffering from inoperable lung cancer - has been fruitlessly searching for a new home for months, and fears for the future of her rescued pets, which include four dogs, seven cats, two racoons, a blind fox, a corn snake, a piranha fish, and two cockatiels.

"We have got extra money for a bond, and friends are trying to help us, some people are doing the lottery in the hope of winning enough money to get us a property," said Jayne.
"My wife spends almost all day on the internet, looking for property, but most landlords will not accept pets or DSS clients," said a desperate Alan this week.
"I fear for my wife's physical and mental health. The animals are her reason for getting up in the morning."
Back in April 2007, Jayne - who has been tattooed with a variety of animal images including eight of her cats - was told her life expectancy was between 18 months and three years.
