Your morning adorable: Rescued seal pup relaxes by the pool
In a typical year, the rescue center sees about 100 sick or injured animals, most of which are young harbor seals. In addition to the harbor seal pups, the center's charges have included sea otters, dolphins and orca whales.
This seal pup is one of the lucky creatures rescued by the center's staff; it will remain there until it's healthy enough to be rereleased into the wild. In the meantime, it certainly looks content relaxing by the pool. (If we were more advanced Photoshop users, we'd superimpose a mai tai next to its flipper.)
