Good morning, dear all!

Here is the early bird. :D

@ Mervi
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!

Inge - I hope 'Rudolph' will disappear soon! - Getting cats into the transport boxes is almost a mission impossible. We have to use all our innovative skils to figure out how to fool them. :D

Chris - What a peaceful photo of Vera and Lottchen!

Now I'm going to publish a new thread!

Mervi, also grey weather here to-day. But no frost. Unfortunately my cold has returned. So Rudolph with the red nose is back.

Ludmila, yes, cats can read thoughts. I arrange everything with the transportboxes and so on the day before, so they are ready by the frontdoor. And I can hardly pass, if I have to go out. And then I try my best fooling them. Until now I have succeeded, but one never knows with cats. Next vet-visit is in april.

Chris, thanks for your links with the polarbears.

Britta-Gudrun, eine schoene Geschichte mit der Katze und den Adoptivkindern. Super suess.

Dumba, thanks for the sweet video and for the romantic coffee.

Mervi and Dumba, thanks for the greetings from Jyrki.

Hallo Ralph, Baergit, Yeo

Chris - I would prefer rain to the fog here, too! :D

Britta-Gudrun - Thank you for the whole story about the cat mama and her kittens and protegées.

Bärgit - I'm glad you noticed the new picture.

Dumba - Good night to the CCC!

Dumba - die Alliteration Wald-und-Wiesen-Wanderung :D
No, today it was Tommi only, tomorrow it'll be the two again (one by one) since Fridays are spent at Maki's house :D

Sweet dreams to you!

BRITTA-GUDRUN - Die Entenkueken-KAtzen-Geschichte und auch die nachfolgende 'Hunde-Miezekatzen-Geschichte sind more than cute und entlocken einem mehr als nur ein Laecheln.
Vielen Dank fuer dieses 'Abend-Schmankerl'. Mei geht's uns heut' gut!

BAERGIT - Du und TOMMI und MAKANI(?) were most busy today.
I am sorry I didn't quite get what you meant with the 'lost Ws' . . .
Hope the extended walks did good to your health!

Hello Dear Alle!

We spent almost the whole day outdoors on two long Wald-und-Wiesen-Wanderungen. Too bad the Ws get lost when translating the word.
And I'm glad we did reading about rain that might continue wandering to our region as well.

Mervi, Dumba - Thank you for forwarding Jyrki's greetings and the pink breakfast table. I do like macarons a lot.

Ralph - As I expressed in another post on Wolodja, I also feel sorry about the missed chance to give him a much 'bearier' habitat in Doncaster. Not to mention the extra stress this new room-mate will have it's - most presumably negative - effects on Lady Katja.

Hier kommt die ganze Geschichte von der multitasking Mom, die noch auf eine harte Probe gestellt wird, weil sie noch lernen muss, dass ihre Adoptivkinder 1. Nestfluechtler sind und vor allem Wasser lieben - enjoy a happy end!

Leider wurde der Spaziergang heute wegen des Regens abgekuerzt

MERVI - you brother is wise, to live in Spain during winter.

Dumba - thank you for forwarding Jyrki's greetings to us all. I deleted the adresses although I don't really think they would do any harm here.

BRITTA-GUDRUN - Deine multitasking Mom ist wunderhuebsch
und sie ist sooo lieb und haelt einiges aus. Das ist bestimmt gar
nicht so angenehm, wenn die suessen Entenkueken mit ihren
harten Schnaebelchen gegen ihren wichen Bauch tackern . . .
Erst gen Ende des Video habe ich geschnallt, dass die gute
Mieze tatsaechlich auch noch eigene Kittens saeugte. Dolles Tierchen
und suessse Minis! . . . Vielen Dank.

MERVI - Dir fuer beides nochmals vielen Dank:
- fuer Deinen Beitrag in 'KWM' und
- fuer die sofortige taetige Reaktion auf meine unten stehende Gruss-Weitergabe :)

Mainly to those who took part in the
'Zur Kneipe'-KNUT-party on December 2nd, 2016
and who signed the card to the sender of the FOLLOWING:

[ Surprise, Surprise! - You've got greetings from Spain.

Text on the above shown 3D-postcard:
Dear . . . and other Knuti-people.
Thank you very much for your card from Berlin,
it was really a nice surprise! I found the card only
last week when I came back to Albacete.
I continue living in two countries, I have recovered
from the deep sadness already - life goes on!
I hope to see you sometimes in your meeting in Berlin
or somewhere else.
Warm regards to all Knuti-people!

JYRKI - Whenever you have a look to 'Die Knuipe', please accept my happy thanks for the lovely
card and for what you did write. It was a real HIGHLIGHT of the day! The card is sooooo sweet!
Wishing you ALL THE BEST in both of your countries, Spain and Finland!

Britta-Gudrun - Wow! Our animal friends manage to take us by surprise again and again and again. The cat mama feeding not only her own kittens but even the small duckies must one of the most generous mamas in the world!!

Ludmila - 'Minka is a drama queen' :D :D :D I wish you best of luck with the vet visit and hope you will make the queen enter the transport basket.

Britta-Gudrun - It's very cloudy here now and I wouldn't be surprised if it started to rain soon.

Chris - Enjoy the Spring weather! - The photo of the 'Amsel' is beautiful! The black bird against the greenish background makes a lovely scene.

Now I'm off to Hochfilzen for men's biathlon competition. I just came back from St Moritz where the alpine WC are going on. :D

Ludmila, das kenne ich. Die merken das schon, bevor sie den Transportkorb ueberhaupt sehen, dass was mit dem Tierarzt ansteht.

Hier noch zum Verwoehnen ein Video mit einer multitasking Mom

Wir haben wieder prächtiges Frühlingswetter.
Daher werde ich erstmal raus gehen und
mich abends ausführlicher melden. :)

Ich lasse euch das

Habt alle einen schönen Tag! :)

Das Problem ist, dass Minka irgendwie weißt, dass sie ins Körbchen soll. Wenn ich nicht das Glück habe sie schnell zu schnappen, rennt sie weg und versteckt sich. Dann wird der Tierarztbesuch verschoben. :)

Dumba, altrosa schmeichelt auch aelteren Damen noch sehr.

Ludmila, ich glaube, alle Katzen sind Drama Queens beim Tierarzt, genauso wie gestandene Kater - viel Glueck!

Mervi, auch hier ziehen Wolken auf, deshalb ergreife ich noch schnell die gute Gelegenheit fuer einen Spaziergang, aber vorher noch schnell ins KWM.

Bis später!
