for you who said it's a cat, you're correct. It's easy to figure out if you know Long Beach. There are hundreds of abandoned feral kitties all
along the harbor. Stupid people think they can just dump their felines and expect them to survive. Well, this one didn't.
I was not far from this location, at the Aquarium and over by the little fishing piers were the cats. Skinny and sad looking. Fortunantely there is
someone who tries to care for them, putting out fresh water for them and food.
That's when I realised, that thing was one of these poor souls.
It probably got swept out, the water rotted out the hair, fish nibbled on the ears - yes the acutal ear hole is that low, we notice the ear flaps
mostly- and the thing washed up. Poor cat.
It dried out there on the shore line, the eyes will look like that cos it's dry and the skin's
tightened up, leaving the eyes wide open and discolored.
I saw one person post somewhere it was a turtle, you can't remove a turtle's shell and find skin under it, there's organs under the shell!
