  3. Dear Timbit,
    I’m so so sorry you were separated from your mother. You are in the good hands of the kind people at MMRC. I hope they are seeing an improvement of your health. Be strong, young Timbit! All being well, you should be able to graduate out of the quarantine tub, and into a pool. My thoughts are with you! 🥰 ❤️

  4. HI Timbit- You are teeny tiny Timbit but looks like you enjoy snuggling with your seal stuffed animal friend. I’m so grateful you were rescued and taken to MMRC. They will give you the best care and lots and lots of TLC. You look nice and fluffy and seem to be a curious and happy little seal. Be strong and I hope you get well soon.

  5. Awe what a sweet little seal 💖 Hope you are doing better buddy sending you a seal hug!

  6. Hi Timbit- I bet you are feeling much better and have gotten a lot stronger. You are probably learning how to eat fishes so you can grow up to be a nice plump seal. Sending love and prayers!
