Hear that? Listen … … It’s the soft pittah pattah of bebbeh polah beah paws …
Zookeepers in Novosibirsk, Russia, report that mama, Gerda, brought her 4 month old cub out of their den for the first time on March 6.
No one knows if the cub is a boy or a girl, and Gerda’s not ready to share yet.
This summer, there will be a special contest held for local residents to choose the little bear’s name.
Er, that gives us a great head start, doesn’t it? Nobody said we can’t have our own naming fun. And, we can plan a trip to the Novosibirsk Zoo! And, we can squee over “our” bebbeh polah beah, that we named, the best name of all in the whole world! Right?!

The Toronto Zoo held the usual “Name That Cub” contest. Yer gonna hafta click the video, like we’re gonna spoil the surprise. (But wait ’til the 1:10 mark! Gaaaaaaaaa.)

Then let’s travel from The Great White North waaay down south to ‘Bama, where Sophie The Cat decides this snow thing isn’t so bad after all.
And then there’s Gonzo’s first snow day.
To put a positive spin on that pesky Polar Vortex thing that’s been hasslin’ a good part of the US, (gasp, I sound like Sarah Palin, sorry) we bring you this Polar Bear Dude that’s just now taking his first steps after a November birth. (Make sure your speaks are up for the Polar Bear Squonking* Noises.)
This one’s for you, Knut buddy.
(*A squonk is kinda like a honk, but not exactly. Is that a word? Don’t think so! New term!!)
It’s so cold, even polar bears can’t handle the polar vortex! Multiple news sources reporting from zoos across the country that polar bears are curling up and staying inside
with their snuggie and a cup of cocoa in front of the fire !
