Friday Friends - meet the Manatees

It's so cold here in Florida that the Manatees have come into a canal near our house to stay warm. Earlier this year Mom said there were over 150 of them in this canal. Mom was there visiting the Manatees one day when Sea World came to try to rescue one of the babies who was showing distress.

Dad took this video a couple of weeks ago and we wanted to share our Manatee friends with our blogging pals.



We'll be hosting the Carnival of the Cats here this Sunday! Please Submit your catblogging post to the handy BlogCarnival submission form or email to carnivalofthecats(at)gmail.com.
