Mama needs some rest every now and then but she also needs to be ‘activated’ …. Gerda’s twins are very innovative finding activities to keep their mama busy!

Any ideas?

Power cuddling with mama is always fun ….

….. and even mama Gerda seems to enjoy it.

A gentle bite on mama’s paw

The grande finale of the power cuddling session is a kiss on mama’s nose.

Next step in Nordis and Shauna’s activity program is the back massage …..

Hmm, mama Gerda looks a bit annoyed 🙂

I don’t know if this is Nordi or Shauna but he/she certainly is very focused on the massage. 🙂

Even mama’s belly needs a good massage.

What a spa Gerda has! Two nice kids taking care of her well being!!

Some sporting is on the schedule, too. Let mama be a mountain to climb!

Horse back, excuse me – polar bear back riding

How do I make this ‘horse’ move?

OK, just lying on mama’s back is great fun, too!

Gentle bites

Two innocent looking cuties

Let’s hope mama isn’t too annoyed with us. On the other hand – how could she be annoyed with two lovely cubbies like us ….

I think we’ve done our best to keep mama activated. Well done, Sis!

Thank you for watching! We’ll be back soon! But before we say bye-bye …. our keepers have treated us with wonderfully cold snow and, of course, we want to share it with you. Hopefully the snow will keep you cool in the heat!

  1. Dear Anna and Mervi
    The adventures of Nordi and Shauna are always heartwarming. Gerda obviously loves them very much.
    The snowy surprise is welcome on a hot evening.

  2. Dear Anna and Mervi!
    These are again such cute pics of the polar bear family in Novosibirsk and the subtitles fit perfectly.

    Gerda appears to be very proud of her frisky kids and she has for sure many reasons.
    I´m reminded of agent 007 1/2 since the cubs obviously have the licence to do nearly whatever they want with their mum… and Gerda doesn´t seem to mind. Yes, patience must be her middle name.
    I loved all pics and could not say which one I like best.

    Since the heat in Berlin is simply unbearable I´m happy and a bit envious the same time that the cubs were spoiled with a heap of snow.
    I´m dreaming of winter…

    Hugs
    Anke
