Blackie and Buttercup are six years old today. They are really good cats and go outside with us and come back in with us. Sometimes they both follow me all over the house. I seen this at Christmas time and now it is in the stores again. The Polaroid camera is back..You take the picture and you get a 3" x 3" instant photo which comes right out of the camera. When my middle brother died in 2013. I sold his Polaroid camera for five hundred dollars. The sperm whale produces the loudest sound of any animal. It is louder than a jet engine. A polar bear's skin is black not white. It's fur is white to blend in with its environment.

I know whales can be loud, perhaps not louder than jet engines but... the name 'sperm whale' was what surprised me the most. It sounds like a dairy cow except folks harvest another liquid from this whale. Well, I wasn't totally wrong. Whale oil and sperm oil were a thing. So folks would extract oil. Just oil.

@jstory07 It was, hunting whales must be hard. Thankfully this activity was banned in most countries.

My Freddie and Morticia are two years old today, Tuesday the 16th, Happy Birthday to them and that is a cute photo, I remember the Polaroid and had it for a while, Now since I do everything on the PC I need a digital camera to load up photos but in my teen years it was fun sharing the Polaroids,

I remember the old Polaroid cameras. That was fun, taking a picture and almost immediately passing it around to show others. Your cats are precious!

The polar bear fur is transparent according to what I have read. The polar bear's fur is also translucent, and only appears white because it reflects visible light.

@jstory07 I have also watched documentaries about Polar bears and they all said that the fur is not white but transparent.

Those kitties are just chillin' together, nice! Funny how obsolete items come back like the Polaroid camera. Same with the record player. Guess for certain things there is always a retro market.

Sweet kitties! I wonder if people have to wear earplugs around sperm whales in the ocean.

I had heard that retro cameras where making a comeback. I do like the ease of digital cameras and not waiting for pictures to come out
