Some mornings are difficult

Just like we humans even our white fluffy friends have ‘those mornings’ when they don’t want to get up at all.

Gerda has come to the door of her cave and lets the early sun rays warm her face.

Oh bear, I feel so tired ….

… I think I go back to the land of dreams.

Kai has come out but decided to lengthen the night’s sleep with a morning nap. ­čÖé

He moved forwards a bit but the eyelids were too heavy and he fell asleep again! ­čÖé

Maybe it’s time to get up anyway. Why do some mornings feel like late evenings??

Good morning, dear Gerda! Don’t you think it’s time to rise and shine?

Yawn, yawn, yawn!!! Am I tired this morning!

I see there are many visitors already so I must make myself presentable.

A face wash should do the trick. I think my furdo is OK!

Hey, there’s a squash for breakfast today!

 photo 39760727_2160841750907133_3572378403233333248_n.jpg

And I found a piece of meat, too. Well, that piece of meat was history very quickly, hehehee…. ­čÖé

Even Kai got a squash but he doesn’t seem to be too interested.

I remember a wise polar bear in Berlin once said ‘veggies are for Sissies’ and I couldn’t agree more!!

Kai decided to go swimming and hoped he would find something eatable in the water.

He was very lucky and found some fish!

Doesn’t our fisherbear look pleased with himself? With all reason, too!

Gerda was praising Kai for being such a skilful fisherbear. Maybe this will be a good day anyway ….

Even Rostik was treated with meat and obviously he liked it. I guess we’re all curious to know what will happen if Gerda gives birth to a cub later this season. Where will Rostik go? On behalf of all the readers of Knuti’s Weekly I wish this beautiful bear best of luck and hope he will find a good new home.

Finally I just have to show a couple of photos of another skilful fisher.

Hello there! Let me show you what I caught today …..

Are you impressed? I must say I’m very impressed myself!

Knuti’s Weekly wishes all the animals, keepers and visitors in Novosibirsk a wonderful Autumn time!

  1. Mervi, thanks for the wonderful article!

  2. Dear Anna, dear Mervi!
    Thank you for the pictures and a nice story. Gerda and Kai look beautiful.
    Rostik is a lovely boy. He is ready for the winter too. His fur is thick.

  3. Liebe Anna,
    liebe Mervi,

    ja, morgendliche M├╝digkeit macht auch vor starken Eisb├Ąren nicht Halt,
    aber selbst daraus machst du, liebe Mervi, eine sch├Âne Geschichte.
    Kai und Gerda sehen pr├Ąchtig aus mit ihrem fluffigen Pelz.
    Auch in der herbstlichen Sonne genie├čen sie die kleine Schneeration
    zur Abk├╝hlung.

    Ich w├╝nsche dem jungen Rostik auch ein gutes neues Zuhause!

    Vielen Dank f├╝r die tollen Bilder, auch von den Ottern und liebe Gr├╝├če,

  4. Dear Anna and Mervi!
    Sometimes polar bears make the same experiences as humans…
    Not every morning begins with a well rested body and a fresh mind and we all know the want to sleep just a little bit longer.

    Thank you for these fine pics and the suitable subtitles. The bears look great although they were still tired at that moment.

    Hopefully the Novosibirsk Zoo will find a good new home for Rostik soon!
    I┬┤m happy for the otter that he found such a big fish. He seemed to be very satisfied with it.


  5. QUOTE: “Why do some mornings feel like late evenings??”
    YEAH, we all do have the experience to post this question once in a while! Isn’t it!?

    Wonderful furDo, dear GERDA, no worries! You are a real beautiful roundish-fluffy expecting mother!
    KAI for sure is proud of you. Good he is not aware what this means for him and for ROSTIK.

    ROSTIK with his lovely face will hopefully have a GOOD new home, soon!

    Thank you, dear ANNA NOVIKOWA for the gorgeous photos of the three polar bears in the NOVOSIBIRSK ZOO. . . Thank you, dear MERVI for the matching subtitles and for your editorial work.

  6. Dear Anna and Mervi
    What a delightful way to start the day with Gerda and Kai and breakfast with Rostik. The photos and words go so well together.

  7. Dear Anna and Mervi

    I wonder what they were doing last night ­čÖé

    Thank you so much vor this splendid report!!


  8. It’s also nice to see those Novosibirsk-beauties once again;
    however, I believe there might have been something wrong with the ‘KWM’-system!?

  9. Dear Anna

    Thank you for the wonderful
    pics from Novosibirsk Zoo !
