Last of the snow this Winter?

Dear friends! Old Man Winter is already planning his retirement and Miss Spring will soon make her entré. However, there's still time to enjoy the snow of this season!

Ja, das Foto "Knut mit dem bunten Basketball" ist herzig, fiel mir auch auf! :)

Mervi, das neue Foto in diesem thread ist wunderbar mit dem Pelz aus lauter Schneebaellchen, auch das mit dem bunten Ball im KWM ist so herzig.
Ach ja, Knut mit seinen Knautschbaellen - unvergessen!
Danke fuer den 1. Preis, der oxtail scheint ja eine besondere Auszeichnung zu sein.

Meine Putzfee hat die kleine Ruege wegen der dustie bunnies sportlich genommen, sie hat noch ein etwas kindliches Gemuet....

Ludmila, ich wusste auch nicht, dass Katzen tatsaechlich Eichhoernchen toeten koennen und diese sogar aufessen.

MERVI - danke für das neue Thread.
Ich hoffe auch, dass der Winter sich
langsam verabschiedet. :)

A special greeting to GANDY :)

LUDMILA - ich wusste nicht, dass
Katzen manchmal Eichhörnchen jagen.

Heute haben wir etwas Regen hier, aber mild.

Ludmila - Wow. I didn't know cats could hunt quick squirrels.
Our squirrels are mostly up on the trees or crossing the roofs. I hardly see them on the ground.

Our old cat Charles cought a squirrel and ate it. Uwe removed all hazel bushes from our garden. The squirrels are not as fast as the cats on the ground.

Hello Dear Alle!

Mervi - Thank you for the new thread and another lovely collage to go with it.
The question mark shows that you are having some doubts about Mr Winter's leaving for Ms Spring.

Ludmila - What would happen if your cats met the squirrel?
Tommi loves chasing them but of course, he never has a change because he's got limitied climbing skills :D

Alle - In case you are still hungry.
I brought Königsberger Klopse with potatoes to Table No 5.
Help yourselves.
Being a late lucher I will and afterwords Ludmila's coffee and some cheese cake as dessert.

Hello friends at coffee time!
We have the rainy day too. I think we will get the grey time now. On the other hand we had no snow in January and no rain in February. The nature needs more water.
How are you doing? You wrote for a long time that your neighbour took a cat from the shelter. Is everything well with a cat and the neighbour?
Today in the morning I saw a squirrel next to our bird feeder. I was glad that our cats were inside. Yesterday in the evening all cats were outside. They are all happy that there is no frost now.

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - the lovely Winter weather is over and it's rainy and foggy again. Well, I can do virtual skiing anyway! :D

Britta-Gudrun - Congratulations! I think this is the first time you're number one so you'll get our traditional first-time-prize - an oxtail in a crystal vase. It will be delivered by our bear army accompanied by sweetly singing birds! :D

Knuti-Judi - We have now the 'grey period' here and it will go on until one morning the Spring just is here - without any 'warning'. :D

Teddybärenmutti - I hope you and Risto are doing fine!

Dumba - Thank you for delivering Yeo's breakfast to us! :D - I love the photos of Knut in the snow and you're right - both photos are by Monika aus Berlin. - Thanks also for the email!

Yeo - I hope your cold is getting better. It's tough to work when you're not feeling well. Wolodja will be in the zoo waiting for you whenever you have time to visit him. :D

Ludmila - Jyrki was ice skating before Christmas and managed to fall so badly that he broke three ribs. Now he's fully recovered but I guess he can't dream of a career as an NHL-player anymore .... :D :D :D

Gudrun has been busy editing her reports and you'll find her report from the Tierpark in the end of January in KWM now. Enjoy!

I wish everybody a good start of the weekend which will soon begin!

Good morning! Guten Morgen!
Thank you for the new thread. The picture of Knut in the snow is lovely.
I am glad your brother is doing well. I think you wrote that he had a ski accident.
I am sending the best wishes to you.
Our winter is not as hard as your. In the moment it looks spring like, but the weather can change very fast.

Luckily I discovered YEO had already prepared a good BREAKFAST
before you would have got two*. Her chosen image is so upliftingly positive
I am sure we all will get into best mood for the day, even though it looks
like weather will not be as heavenly-like as it was the past two days.
(*I don't want to be responsible if you gain weight! ;) )

MERVI - Thank you for a new thread and the hilarious photo of
charming KNUTi with a ball, both covered over and over with snow,
saying: 'LET IT SNOW!' :)
Also the new cover pic in 'KWM' ( I guess it's also from MONIKA(Berlin) )
- also showing KNUTi with the ball in the snow - is sooo beautiful.
Thank you for this good choice, as well!

BRITTA-GUDRUN - Herzlichen Glueckwunsch
for being NUMBER ONE! :)
Wie immer bin ich gespannt, was sich Mervi diesmal als 'Award' ausgedacht hat.
(Vielliecht etwas mit Deinem 'TWEETY' . . . ????)

INGE aus Cph - Vielen Dank fuer Dein Feedback.

Here is YEO's breakfast-comment which did appear
in the LAST thread:
YEO 12:53 AM on February 17, 2017
Good morning, dear all!
Here is the early bird. :D
This week I will not visit Wolodja any more. I do not do anything in the morning when I have to go to work in the afternoon. Besides, I'm still not so good. But in the next week I have early service, there is a visit to Wolodja firmly planned. :)
@ INGE Greetings to Copenhagen!
I wish you all a pleasant Friday and a good start in the weekend!
