Guestbook for Rumba

  1. Hi Rumba- Little do you know there is a vacuum cleaner named Rumba as well as a dance move. I hope you are being brave and strong and are feeling better now that you have been at MMRC for a few days. They will take great care of you and give you lots of TLC so you can grow strong and hopefully be released back into the ocean so you can enjoy swimming with your other mammal friends. Sending you lots and lots of love and prayers sweet Rumba.

  2. Rumba, Rumba- sounds like you are doing well and learning how to eat your fishes. Keep up the good work and continue eating your fishes so you get stronger and stronger. You are doing great and I’m proud of your hard work.
