A tiny kitten and its young mother have been rescued by RSPCA staff.
Carma and ‘Itty Bitty Shaking Steven’ were picked up in the Spilsby area by inspectors.
With Carma being nervous and not showing any interest in her baby, inspectors made the decision to remove Steven from her and place him with a fosterer who has been hand-feeding him every half-an-hour.
Carma was transferred to Ruskington Kennels where she will be available for adoption very soon.
RSPCA Lincolnshire East branch hopes she will go to a home where she will be given lots of gentle encouragement to play and gain the confidence to enjoy being a young cat again.
