Nosy Catalan's casually abandoning pet (5)


I believe the answer is:


'nosy' is the definition.
(relating to the nose)

I don't understand the remainder of the clue.

(Other definitions for nasal that I've seen before include "Describing some hooter" , "Relating to one's hooter" , "Like some spray" , "front piece of helmet" , "pinched" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian.
