Disclaimer: The sandbox belongs to the BBC. I'm just playing here in the corner. Not making any money, not asserting any claims.
A/N: A belated stocking stuffer for [info]yamx. Thanks to my betas: [info]wendymr and [info]canaana.


“Harkness, you’re insane!”

“You’re a psychiatrist now, Owen? What’s your objection to Chester joining Torchwood?”

“Who’s going to look after him? I don’t want my supply orders bollocksed up because Teaboy is busy with Chester.”

“I’ll help,” Gwen and Tosh say simultaneously.

“We’ll take turns,” Tosh adds.

“The girls won’t get anything done if they’re mooning over him,” Owen grumbles.

Chester says nothing.

“I’ll do it,” Jack says. “Torchwood needs him. We’ve enough work chasing aliens without handling terrestrial problems, too.”

Owen snorts. “He’ll be in your bed every night. Not that I care.”

Torchwood’s new Rodent Control Officer purrs.

Thanks! Don't worry about Chester -- the Hub is full of nooks and crannies where a streetwise cat can hide.

I give Chester a week before he takes over Torchwood, puts Owen in a cell, saves the Earth then naps for a couple of days. lol

Good guess! You only missed the part where he sends Ianto out for takeaway sashimi.

Cute, but I generally don't trust cats. Why do I have a feeling that Chester will eventually betray Jack?

Eventually, everyone betrays Jack. It's one of the sad truths of the universe.

Cute. And he will definitely be in Jack's bed, because everyone is eventually.

Yes, he will. And Jack may discover that he has never had a more demanding bedmate. *Scratch there. A little lower. Yes. Harder*
