Knut, Germany

If I could, i would be delighted to keep this adorable little creature at home! Well, ok, on the card its little, once it's full grown it wont be that cute probably...but just look at him....he is so cute and playful...i wish i could at least hug him :)

When Knut was born (on Dec 5, 2006) he was no bigger than a snowball and unable to care for himself. His mother didn't know how to take care of Knut and rejected him. Knut would have died if it weren't for Thomas Dorflein, a zookeeper who nurtured Knut and gave him the love and attention he needed to thrive. The adorable little polar bear captured the world's attention, and now Knut is loved around

Unfortunately, i read that Thomas died of a heart attack last September...i really wonder how Knut (who is now 2 years old) reacted to that, having in mind how animals react to the death of the people who take care of them. They maybe are not conscious, but they surely can sense the bad things happening around them.

*sighs* I really wish i could hug him....he just seems so timid....

Thank you Yukiko for this adorable card!
