Alongside a collection of clips of her cat, Jess, 30, wrote: “Devastated. Nothing beats the love a girl feels for her first cat.”
You were there for everything. The most loving, beautiful girl.
I will miss you forever, my princess.

More devastation threatened as she attempted to break through News to their four-year-old son Presley.

“I haven’t had the heart to tell him yet,” Jess wrote. “I mentioned to heaven earlier that she might have to go and his little heart broke and he cried and then it broke my heart even more. So hard when they love her so much.”

“I don’t think I’ve ever cried so much. She was something special.”

Her followers were quick to send messages of support and expressed their condolences.

One wrote: “I’m so sorry…I lost my first cat last year so I know how you feel. I send big hugs x.”

A second post wrote: “God bless you. I am so sorry for your loss. Your baby will always take care of you and you will see them again one day.”

A third said: “I’m so sorry love such a precious baby you gave her everything xxxx.”

Jess has struggled with a lot this year.

In April, she bravely announced she had suffered a second miscarriage, two years after losing her son Teddy at 19 weeks old.

She explained: “When you experience a loss, you have to pretend you’re okay, wipe your tears and move on because you have a little kid. You cook dinner, you read the stories. You do the school run. Nothing stops.”

“It was a traumatic day when it happened, which I didn’t expect at all. I was trying to stay busy and going about my day which was a big mistake.”

“I rushed home in a panic after telling myself the last time (previous bleeding) it might happen again, so I was just happy to get out the other side.”
