Kai is wondering why he and Gerda are separated. This isn’t the first time but for Kai it’s still a big mystery.

Gerda seems to be accepting the situation better than Kai. Well, she was the one who clearly showed she wanted to be alone.

Dear Kai, there’s a reason why we are separated. I’m not quite sure but who knows ….. maybe something will happen in my den in due course ….

Gerda sure looks roundish and she also looks very happy. It remains to be seen if she has a secret reason for the nice smile.

Dear Kai, stay chilly and be cool! Soon the trees have let their leaves fall on the ground and sooner than you realize the snow will cover them. Then you can enjoy your favourite season again. We’ll meet again when the time is right!

Kai is looking very slim ….

….. almost skinny. I hope he’s eating well anyway. Perhaps he just doesn’t gain weight …. (Mervi’s note: Oh, how I wish I could say the same!)

I want to present some other white lovelies in the Novosibirsk Zoo in this article.

What a beauty!

These two sure make a charming couple!

Do you remember the arctic wolf puppies I presented in this magazine some time ago? They are doing fine and growing fast. It’s not easy to take a photo of the whole family together but Arkadi succeeded – at least once.

They have a nice ‘watch tower’ where they can keep an eye on what’s going on in the zoo.

I’m a bit shy ….

…. but OK! I will show my adorable face to you. Did I hear an aaawwh and an oooooh?

Kai is wondering why the polar bears don’t hibernate.

I could sleep at least until the snow falls again.

Maybe I don’t hibernate but I can always take a nice nap!

Hopefully I will have sweet dreams of Gerda and me together.

Please, don’t disturb!

  1. Dear Anna, Arkadi and Mervi
    Thank you for another opportunity to visit
    Novosibirsk.
    Gerda may have been eating for two but Kai
    has been pining for her perhaps.
    The horses and wolves are also beautiful.

  2. Dear Mervi, Anna and Arkadij!
    Thank you for the update from the Zoo in Novosibirsk!
    While Gerda is well nourished and looks good, Kai is only a shadow of his former self. I got a shock when I saw him so skinny. Hopefully he is not seriously ill and will soon be back to his old self!

    Now that Gerda may be in foal again, I wonder what happened to her last offspring…?
    Let´s hope for the best.

    Hugs
    Anke

  3. Die gute Gerda sieht seeehr plüschig aus,aber den guten Kai hats ja regelrecht “weggeschmachtet”-nur wer die Sehnsucht kennt,weiß,wie ich leide…
    Hoffentlich können sie bald wieder zusammen sein!

  4. Dear Anna and Kai!
    Gerda looks wonderful. Unfortunately Kai does not look well. I hope he is in the good health.
    The artic wolves are beautiful.
    Hugs
    Ludmila

  5. Thank you very much dear Mervi, Anna and Arkadi.
    Best wishes to Kai, Gerda and the other animals in Novosibirsk Zoo.

  6. Danke für den lieben Bericht aus Novosibirsk. Gerda sieht toll aus, schauen wir mal ob sie uns überrascht.

    Liebe Grüße, Erika

  7. Dear Anna, Arkadi and Mervi

    Gerda looks well fed. She will do well the time in the box whether with or without babies.
    BUT Kai is really much too thin. The polar bear man needs to gain weight. But if bear is plagued by the pain of separation, the esseb is only third-rate.
    I wish Gerda as well as Kai all the best.
    Thank you for the other wonderful impressions!

    Hugs,
    Anita
