The Torchwood Drabble Files by badly_knitted

Summary: A collection of drabbles, mostly based on the weekly prompts at tw100. Mostly Jack/Ianto as that's what I write, but no doubt other Torchwood characters will pop in from time to time. All genres are possible, but expect mainly humour and fluff, because that's usually what comes out when I write. All are 100 words exactly in Word, but apparently not here!

The Torchwood Drabble Files by badly_knitted
Chapter 690: Licked - Sequel to ‘Catty’
Author's Notes: My fourth drabble for Challenge 335 – Feline at tw100.

Summary: There are some things that are too much even for Ianto.

Ianto had been a cat for two days and was becoming increasingly aware that while his situation had some pleasant aspects, there were downsides too.

Personal hygiene came top of that list. He flatly refused to wash in the traditional cat manner, making it clear that licking himself was simply not going to happen. Jack seemed to understand, grooming him until he looked immaculate, but it wasn’t the same as having a shower.

Although his cat self wasn’t fond of water, he patiently suffered through Jack washing his paws, face and… intimate places with a damp cloth.


“You’re welcome.”
