You can see the list of all animals released at this release in the release record.

Kaitlyn is moving into a pool tomorrow! She will be with her friend Hot Fuzz and they will be able to learn how to compete for fish together.

One thing is obvious... Kait loves her bath time!

Kait is still a bit on the weak and skinny side... but she'll get there!

Guestbook for Kaitlyn

  1. “K-k-k-katy, beautiful Kaity,” may you thrive in your new temporary home.

  2. She is so beautiful! I am so happy you guys rescued her. She’s gonna live a good life <3

  3. Hi teeny tiny Kaitlyn. I love that they posted a video of you so i can see how full of cuteness you are. You are vocal and curious and I bet you grow up to be lots of fun. Drink your milk so you can grow big and strong. Much love and prayers coming to you.

  4. Hi Kait sweet seal pup. You have the cutest videos posted for us to see just how precious you are. You have been in the care of MMRC for several months now so I know they have taken good care of you. It says you are in fish school which means you’ve been working hard to grow big and strong. I bet the next time I check on you they will have released you back into the big blue ocean where lots of fun adventures are waiting for you. Keep up the good work and be well sweet lady!

  5. It’s so sweet to see you happy and loving your bath Kaitlyn 🥰 you are such a beautiful little seal❤️🦭
