Last night Dee Williams, CATS, Inc, sent me these pics of the Electra family (mama + 6), rescued on Tues. 
She says mama couldn't be sweeter and wee ones all active and doing well. 
She is thrilled to have them and wrote:
"They are so adorable and the mom is very sweet and confident. So trusting.
I love this little family!
Here are some pics. I'll send them in several emails.
Hard to photograph mom as she loves to check everything out when I'm visiting with the babies "
Later she wrote:
"I'm so sorry to hear about your Elvis kitty! I can't even imagine all the bad news you have to deal with daily. You are on the front lines......
I'm glad you like the pics. It is so rewarding to care for a family like this, knowing that they have been given their second chance. I get wonderful adopters, too! My adopters are almost all from my little town. I see them all the time and always get great updates. One of my adopters knits little blankets for me to put in with my kitties when they are up for adoption. Then, when they get adopted, they go home with their very own blanket that gives them a bit of comfort."

8/4/14: The Electra ​Family has a provisional offer of rescue  from - the caveat being that family must test negative for FeLV. If I see updates I will add them here. Thanks to all who crossposted.

Family's extension now expired and they can be pts anytime. 
I hate to say this because it's awful to even contemplate,
but those tiny babies will not die peacefully. 
$325 pledged so far.
Lili reports that the family now has $300 in pledges if a rescue will take them in. The shelter has directed that they need to be gone by 5PM today 8/2.
