“Let me get this straight,” said Jack. “You’re telling me that Fluff reproduction is tied to the amount of caffeine in their systems?”
“Sort of.” Owen looked thoughtful. “Look, it’s not like giving Nosy coffee will make it spontaneously start producing more Fluffs. It’s more that they can’t reproduce at all unless they have enough caffeine in their diets.”
“Then there’s not going to be a Fluff population explosion?”
“Let me put it this way. We’ve had Nosy more than five years and we only have one baby Fluff.”
“So that’s a no?”
“Pity. We could’ve made a fortune.”
