“Anything to report?” Jack asked, handing out drinks, having taken his turn to fetch refreshments.


“Not so far,” Ianto replied, not taking his eyes off the scene as Jack sat down beside him.


“Everything’s progressing normally,” Owen added.


“Should we be watching this?” asked Rhys, looking more than a little uncomfortable. “I mean, I feel a bit weird, like I’m intruding on something private.”


“It’ll be good practice, mate,” Owen assured him. “Not long now until Gwen’s due date, is it?”


“Less than a month,” Rhys admitted. “Don’t mind admitting I’m terrified.”


“So watch and learn,” Jack said cheerfully. “It’s not that different.”


“Except that with humans, there’s a lot more screaming, swearing, squeezing hands hard enough to crush bones, and threatening to castrate the father,” Ianto put in mildly. “I was there when Mica was born. Mostly because Johnny passed out.”


“Oh God,” Rhys groaned, turning pale.


“Look!” Tosh squeaked, pointing. “I think something’s happening!”


She was right; as they watched, enthralled, the first of five tiny bundles made its entrance into the world.


“Oh, that’s so gross!” Rhys looked disgusted.


“Don’t worry,” Owen smirked. “Humans don’t lick their babies clean the way cats do.”


“Thank God for that!”



The End

Aww. This makes me remember when my Molly & her littermates were born. <3
Happy memories for you =D

Thank you!
NAAW kitties. LOL poor Rhys hope he doesnt pass out when Gwen delivers.

great drabble
If he does, it'll probably be because she's crushed his hand!

Thank you!
Does it seem terrible to say I coo over kittens much more than babies, But then my maternal instinct was surgically removed at an early age
I was born without a maternal instinct, so it doesn't sound strange to me at all. I'm exactly the same. Cute baby animals have me cooing, but if I coo over a baby it's just to be polite.

Thank you!

Poor Rhys. Not quite the preparation for fatherhood he was probably planning on.

Torchwood are preparing him in their own unique way ;)

Thank you!
