Now I can take them with me...

A terminally ill woman has thought of an unusual way to take her much-loved animals with her - she's having them tattooed on her body.
Jayne Jubb from March is passionate about animals. Along with her husband Alan, she takes in and cares for a variety of animals including cats, dogs, birds, raccoons, fish and snakes. Jayne is absolutely devoted to her animals, many of whom are sick, or came from rescue centers.
In 2007 Jayne was diagnosed with lung cancer and was told she had between 18 months and three years to live. Devastated by the news, one of Jayne's main worries was "what's going to happen to the animals when I die?"
Jayne's animals are so important to her that she decided to get them tattooed on her body. She says "when I go, my animals can come with me".
"Animals never let you down, they show their true feelings to you, they don't lie... people aren't like that."

Wow! I have some people who are very close to me tattoo'd on my arms... both portraits and Cherokee words that represent them. They'll always be with me.
