This was a rare treat for Nosy. Fluffs were mostly vegetarian, although Nosy had developed a liking for baked goods and some dairy products, especially cheese. Owen had developed a food plan for the friendly alien soon after it joined the team as their official mascot and helper, so Nosy got to eat a very healthy and varied diet, it certainly couldn’t complain, but that didn’t mean it didn’t enjoy getting back to nature now and then.
Today it had accompanied Jack and Ianto out to the large enclosed compound designated the Reservation, to make one of their regular monthly checks on the residents living there. The last couple of times they’d been out here, the weather hadn’t been suitable for Nosy; thick snow the first time and rain the next, but today seemed almost like spring, with blue skies and sunshine. As the previous week had been mainly dry, Nosy had been invited along.
While Jack and Ianto strolled among the fields and woodland, visiting the strange alien creatures, Nosy slithered happily along behind them, pausing now and then to graze on the lichens and mosses that grew on rocks and walls. They were much tastier than they looked.
