After sleeping in a warm bed for a few nights and filling their little bellies, the mama cat and her three kittens were doing much better. The mom, whom rescuers named Phoebe, was even "purring away" as she nursed her babies.
Lincs Ark will care for Phoebe and the kittens until they're old enough to be adopted into forever homes. Of course, the kittens will be spayed and neutered before adoption - as the rescue group pointed out, "there is no excuse not to have a cat neutered, there are enough schemes to help if funds are tight. This could have been avoided."
