Author's Notes:
This one’s for milady_dragon. Thought you could do with a little boost considering everything you’re dealing with right now!

I really should have posted this one before ‘Personal Grooming’ (Ch. 466), which is kind of the sequel.

Prompt is at the end.

Summary: Nosy is exhibiting a strange symptom, causing Jack to panic.

“Ianto!” Jack ran from his office, eyes wide with panic.

“Jack? What’s wrong?”

“Nosy’s going bald!”


“It’s not my fault, I was just stroking it and all its fluff started falling out!” Jack sounded frantic, holding up a handful of green hairs. “Look!”

Ianto tried very hard not to laugh, but failed.

“Jack, it’s okay. Nosy’s just shedding its winter coat, it won’t go bald.”

“Oh. Are you sure?”

“Quite sure,” Ianto replied ruefully, watching Nosy slither past leaving a trail of green fluff in its wake.

“I really should teach Nosy to use the vacuum cleaner,” he sighed.

The End

A/N: Prompt was ‘Nosy starts shedding’.
