Hello all you purveyors of a fine House Panther - it's Lillabet 💖 @nelson_and_lillabet
Today's Black Cat Feature is a part-time office worker like myself (we just need to make a little something for pawdicures and chirpy birds whilst doing the bare minimum) - please meet the pawdorable Flora @coworker_cats
I caught up with Flora's Manager and Human at the water cooler to find out the goss on this little bundle of Black Cat crazy.
. "We got Flora from a neighbour whose cat (only a kitten herself) had got herself in a spot of bother. Her mum was a tabby but Flora was the only black kitten in her litter. She was perfect for us as we'd always wanted a black cat.
Flora has an older cat sibling in the form of Zoe who has never warmed to her and even after 8 years of living together Zoe still swipes and hisses when Flora gets too close. Flora has turned this into a kind of sport and one her favourite things to do is pounce on Zoe when she least expects it, despite knowing that it'll end in a face full of claws.
Flora likes roast chicken, sleeping on top of the boiler and cuddles, but only in the morning on her terms. She's extremely agile and it's easy to forget that she's 8 when she's still parkouring her way around the house.
Flora's key strengths are her cuteness and, being so petite, she gets away with absolutely everything... including never doing a day's work in her role as an office cat.
She absolutely detests window cleaners to the point that she assumes any male with a ladder is a window cleaner and starts growling away. However she has never once offered to clean the windows herself."
Pop on over and say Hi to Flora and give her a follow 🖤

A great plains skink I found back home in the panhandle of Texas. I found this individual while rummaging around an old junk yard located on our property. I had never caught one before and I finally had a great plains skink in hand, but by that I mean it had me by the hand.
Their teeth may be small, but they are equipped with incredibly powerful jaws that apply a large amount of pressure. This allows them to eat grasshoppers, beetles, snails, and even other lizards.
This skink's tail is regenerating, most likely it was dropped when a predator tried to capture it - If you look closely at the tail tip you can see the new growth. It can take months for the tail to grow back.
Did you know that some lizards will come back to eat the tail that they have dropped? They do this because the tail holds important fat deposits.
After some photos, I released it back under the scrap metal where it was originally found.
It can be so hard to admit when we are wrong...so forgive me if I don't get this perfect....😢 I owe my oldest daughter an apology for several things first and foremost is letting my big mouth get me in trouble by spouting off when I should keep my opinions to myself....baby I say this on SM because, you deserve the same courtesy as your brothers and sisters second I'm so sorry I missed your birthday post (I honestly was under the impression that you didn't want to be tagged on here)....so this is over a month late but here goes

Whose ready to party like Kim K?
I only need to be one rosé down and am easily persuaded to drink champagne and dance on tables!!
Most of us live for the weekend right?? The subconscious celebration for five days of hard work!! 🥳
As soon as the weekend rolls around we feel tempted to break our diet, forget our exercise routine and splash too much cash 💸
Whilst we can all train our way out of a cheat day, playing fast and loose with our spending plan can give us serious cash hangovers🤦🏼♀️ Play it safe and follow these tips:
#1 Give yourself a weekend allowance. If you like to go cray at the weekends, make some adjustments during the week to allow you to be a bit more flash! ⚡️
#2 Take out the amount of cash you’re allowed to spend on the weekend and spend only the money you have in your wallet. 🤓
#3 Leave your debit and credit cards at home!! The urge to start a tab or pay for bottle service will not be as easy or accessible!! 😇
I have always needed these little sour patch weenies...I don't know how I functioned before them.
Whenever my anxiety feels out of control...i just need these weight blanket babies to fall asleep on me....life feels different with these sweeties. #fiesty#fight#bite#cuddletime#sleepytime
