Kai was a bit bored and tried to find ways to entertain himself. When I’m writing this he and Gerda are still separated from each other.

Sesam! Open! Oh bear, there’s no door here …. but I know my Gerda is waiting for me!

The snow makes an excellent downhill track. It’s no Hahnenkamm but it will do!

Hey, I think I’m hearing a cheer leader!

Gerda can’t see Kai but knows he’s up to something special. Of course, she’s doing her best to encourage Kai in is Winter sports activities. 🙂

The worn-out toy reminds her of Shauna and Nordi ….

Gerda decided to turn the meat into minced meat. Her paws are excellent tools for this purpose! 🙂

  4. Dear Mervi and Arkadi!
    While spring has already begun here and the birds are singing, the bears in Novosibirsk can still play in the snow. Kai obviously has a lot of fun with his kind of winter sport and looks simply magnificent.
    Gerda is a beauty, that’s for sure, and she seems to be feeling the spring already…
    The close-ups of both bears are great. In the last one, Gerda is making a real kissing face.
    Thanks for the lovely report!

    Hugs
    Anke
