Dear friends! April has a foolish kind of weather and I strongly suspect June has been imitating April. :-) Well, let's BEAR in mind that a good Summer has all the ingredients: rain, thunder, sunshine, heat wave .... you name it!

Ralph - Thank you for the Tierpark bulletines! You've had a great morning and a wonderful afternoon with Tonja, Wolodja & Co. What an experience with the varis you had! :D

Ludmila - What a relief the rain has stopped!

Chris - Oh bear, Berlin has had 200% more rain than usual.

Annemarie - I really hope a specialist can help you soon! - Enjoy the Herkules!

Knuti-Judi - We all spoil our cats but they're worth it - aren't they?! :D

We spoil our all cats. I am afraid the cats see the situation different :)
Ferdi says often to me that he needs more cuddling. :)
Ich hoffe, dass dir bald besser gehen wird.

Hallo, dears....

A ☀️sunny☀️ morning here....

Glad to hear of your enjoyable
time with your Kati and the
Tierpark polar bears!
Will you see the 🐼🐼s?

Good weekend to you, too!

The cats are well, thanks.
Caroline is a spoiled princess😎
We all love her madly.

You are retiring very soon,
yes? I wish for you a maid
who can take care of all
your wishes! Hugs.💟

Hugs all around...💛💜💚💛

Chris: Danke der Nachfrage. Mir geht es nicht besser, aber auch nicht schlechter. Die Kraempfe machen mir speziell morgens und abends zu schaffen, aber ansonsten ist alles wie immer = Unkraut vergeht nicht!

Ralph: Ich wuensche Dir weiterhin viel Freude in Berlin.

Ludmila: Chris hat es auch gerade geschrieben: Nur gut, Ihr wohnt am Berg/Huegel (ich auch in G.).

Ein Herkules wird jetzt von mir benoetigt, damit ich den Rest-Tag gut ueberstehe.

RALPH - you have a nice time in Tierpark, the Varis are lovely! :)

LUDMILA - fortunately you live on the
hill and not being affected of the flood.

I´ve found an interesting statistic for the rainfall in Germany.
There are big differences between the northeast and the
southwest. Frankfurt for example has 56% less rain as
in normal years - Berlin has 200% plus, thats eminent.

Am back with the Polars. Altgough the sun has gone in it is very warm. Tonja is sleeping on Aika'sc throne. Wolodja has his head in one of the entrances and is flaked out like Troll. Neither is using the mulch or keeping cool in thewater. A restful afternoon for all three of us in Tierpark

Hello friends at coffee time!
Mervi, Chris
Today we have no rain. I hope the situation will be better soon.
Enjoy your time in Berlin. I like to visit Varis in Tierpark. They have very soft fur :)
Ich sende Dir viele gute Wünsche
I hope you will visit Knuipe tonight. We have as usually a big jar with Orange juice :)

Am writing this on my Knuphone on a bench near the Buntmarder in Tierpark
Berlin after having my picnic snacks. The sun has been shining so I am happy
that there are plenty of shady places. I was at the Polar Bear commentated feeding
and it is clear that Tonja has told Wolodja to leave her alone. She is not as fat as last year
but her relaxed and contented air must suggest she hopes
to be a mum again. Highlight in the Vari wood was having a red ruffed lemur licking my hat, hands and ears for the salt.

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - I'm sure all our working friends are thinking 'TGIF' :D

Dumba - The breakfast on the balcony was a good start of this day. :D Nalle is a very small cat - especially compared to Mimmi who's very big. Some would say she's fat but I don't want to hurt her feelings. :D - Let's hope the weather will be better so Ralph can enjoy his visit in the CCC with dry feet!

Chris - The rainy weather is coming to us but I hope it won't be raining as heavily as in Germany.

Yeo - Have a good time in the garden but don't over do it. Maybe you'll have time even for power hammocking! :D

Annemarie - Horrido to Göttingen! I hope you're feeling better.

Ludmila - A dirty piggy is a happy piggy! :D

In KWM you'll find Anita's report from Hellabrunn - as usual starred by Giovanna and Quintana. I wish everybody a very good Friday!

LUDMILA - I heard in the radio about your highwater.
Also in Braunschweig and Hildesheim the situation
is dangerous, because there is much water from the
Harz - I cross my fingers for the people there! :)

ANNEMARIE - ich hoffe, es geht dir heute etwas besser!?

YEO - viel Spaß im Garten und am freien Wochenende! :)

Bei uns kann sich das Wetter noch nicht so richtig ent-
scheiden - es sind einige Wolken unterwegs.
Nachts gab es wieder ein Gewitter. :)

Good morning! Guten Morgen!
I hope for the dry weather. We have the flood in the middle of our city. The meddow of the pigs is not under the water. The pigs are happy to dig in the dirt :)

That's what CCC saw in the last days
-BUT it's said summer is on its way back to us . . . (!?)
Today we were already as lucky as to see some rays of the foreign yellow thingy . . .

Wishing magic dreams to ALL of our KNUT-friends

Breakfast with view - right for looking forward to a perfect weekend :)
Just have a look into the food-safe whenever it's convenient to you:



MERVI - Your Home-NALLE is a sweety - he seems to remain a kitten :)
MIMI is an impressive she-cat. - Both are intelligent occuping their favorit places in time ;)
The 'SAVE THE ARCTIC-Woman' looks great!

RALPH - Welcome in the CCC again. I am not sure whether we will meet this time.
But I am sure you will meet enough even more reliable KNUT-friends :)
Wishing you a good time in Zoo Berlin, Tierpark Berlin and also Downtown Berlin!
