    Kitten found paddling 3 miles into ocean

    Clearwater Marine Aquarium

    Nemo gets comfortable in a hat after being rescued at sea three miles east of Tampa.

    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Stranger than a fish out of water: a kitten in the bay.

    When Maggie Rogers spotted something bobbing in the water three miles into the Gulf of Mexico while on a scalloping trip with friends, she assumed it was a turtle, or a piece of sea kelp.

    But as the boat got closer and slowed down, she discovered it was a tiny, apricot-colored kitten. Nine inches long and screeching, the cat was paddling furiously.

    "We scooped him up and he sat on the boat with me for eight hours," said Rogers, who is the finance director at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium.

    "He was exhausted and stressed," Rogers said. "His heart rate was high."

    The boaters on the 17-foot Scout Current Drift did not know how the kitten arrived in the Homosassa Bay. There were at least 40 boats in the crowded area where he was found, they said.

    On Tuesday, three days after he was found, a veterinarian said the 10-week-old, 1-pound kitten had worms, but was otherwise healthy.

    He was adopted by Rogers' sister-in-law - and named Nemo.

    I AM NOT going to be the one who makes the juvenile and immature comments about the unfortunate side effects of soaking a pussy in salt water too long.

    No sir.

    Not me.

    Wouldn't think of it.
