Last Wednesday's storms snarled commutes, downed trees, and separated the above young sea otter pup from her mom.

According to KSBW, the pup was stranded, motherless, at Carmel Beach, where she was spotted by beachgoers.

Though "A rescue team from the Monterey Bay Aquarium held the pup close to the water at the end of a rocky point, hoping her mother would hear the pup's squeaks and come back for her," the pup's mother never turned up, so the Aquarium took her in.

According to the Aquarium's site, the pup is about four weeks old, and is in good health. However, since the Aquarium is "without available surrogate mothers" at present, the pup will likely find a new home at another aquarium, pinging the OK from US Fish & Wildlife. OR SHE COULD COME LIVE WITH ME PLEASE.
