Privet (hello) to you all! I’m Gerda but I’m not fully awake yet. I must have my meditative morning moment before getting more active.

OK, now I feel ready for this new day! I hope  I’m looking beautiful …

First I must check what’s going on in the neighbourhood …. I also want to see if Kai is awake ….

Good morning, dear Gerda! Here I am looking better than ever – if you excuse me for saying so myself. I don’t believe in being too modest about one’s looks!

You see what I mean!!

A gorgeous face and a snow covered fur are my ‘secret weapons’ although you can see them quite clearly. 🙂

And they say women are vain!! Well, I must say Kai IS a handsome guy but I wouldn’t dream of telling it to him. He’s getting too macho!

I guess I’d better go and wish him a good morning.

Oh, there’s nothing that compares to gentle wrestling in the snow. A perfect way to start a day!

Aren’t we lucky to have each other!

Rostik is still in Novosibirsk but I guess he will soon be moving to another zoo. This lovely boy deserves an  enclosure with lots of space!

There are many beautiful cats living in this zoo, too. The Amur tigers love the Winter time ….

… and so does the snow leopard.

  1. Dear Anna and Mervi
    The words and photos from snowy Novosibirsk are especially welcome this morning as it is cold and damp
    here in Kidlington.
    Great to see Anna here as well as her friends from the Zoo. All the animals look well and of course the snow is there favourite element.
    I would love to see Rostik join Nissan in Doncaster. They would make a great team!

  2. Dear Anna, dear Mervi!
    Gerda and Kai are in love. They both look gorgeous.
    Rostik is a lovely boy. I hope he will come in the good zoo very soon.
    The Amur tigers and snow leopaeds like the snow.

  3. Dear Mervi and Anna!
    Wonderful photos, the heartwarming lovestory of Gerda and Kai and suitable affectionate words, what more could a polar bear lover ask for? Gerda and Kai look so cuddly, just fantastic!
    Thank you so much!

    Furthermore the pics of the tigers and the snowleopard are beautiful too.

    I hope Rostik will move soon in a bright and better future!


  4. Dear Anna and Mervi

    The photos from Novosibirsk are great !
    For the winterproof animals it is the nice
    weather, but the poor people, who have
    to cope with low temperatures so long.
    In Frankfurt we have Spring and in the
    east you have deep frost.Gerda and
    Kai are looking so good with their
    thick fur. And even the big cats
    love old man winter. Thank you
    so much for the reports from
    siberia, dear Anna ! 🙂

    Chris 🙂

  5. Danke an Anna für die Übersendung der wunderschönen Fotos von den Eisbären, Tiger und Schneeleoparden.

    Gerda und Kai sind ein tolles Paar. Schön zu sehen wie sie gemeinsam kuscheln. Wenn da mal nicht der Schnee schmilzt.

    Danke auch an Dich liebe Mervi, fürs Einstellen.

    Liebe Grüße

  6. Liebe Mervi und liebe Anna,
    Gerda und Kai mögen sich, das zeigt so eine nette morgendliche Begrüßung.
    Die großen Katzen sind wunderschön und das Klima perfekt für diese Tiere.

    Liebe Grüße Moni K
