This is a Fuggle. These gossipy little tumors live on making up and spreading salacious lies about friends and families alike. Fortunately, fuggles only speak Fugglish, so only other fuggles are ever privy to others private and personal business. So, why does all this matter and where do you come in? I was hoping you would ask!
You see, fuggles also eat and live on rumors, so when you adopt this little fuggle you can feed it by telling it all the rumors you hear. This way the rumors will be going to a good cause, feeding a fuggle and keeping you from being tempted to spread that juicy bit of gossip that you just heard. You can just take your fuggle out of your pocket, and feed it all the wicked whispers you have!
