Day 2 - my memory, my mission

After departing the black and white striped stinky cat, I was not all that anxious to have another encounter before getting some rest. The alley was dark and undulating - I had to watch each step as well as remain vigilant about the presence of others. I was getting so tired...

As I walked the alley, I found an old abandoned boat with vines and leaves growing all through it... it wasn't in a "yard", but just in this rarely-used alley. I hopped in and took a good sniff- no one had been here recently - and curled up in the motor compartment in a bed of elm leaves for a nap. It had been way too much excitement for one day already, and I knew my mission for the next day would be finding my way home... or so I thought.

"I hope they are wrong about you..."

I tossed and turned in a half-conscious state.

"All that talk, that you've gone soft... right when we need you..."

I opened one eye - no one was there. A dream? I drifted back off to sleep.

"I told them not to leave you in deep cover for so long... that's how we lose all our best agents..."

I hopped into a defensive crouch. I knew I heard something... those voices? Were they real? I looked all around - nothing had stirred. Not a leaf, nor a branch. Nothing.

Troubled by what I was "hearing", I assumed the meatloaf position and started thinking. What did it mean? Agent? Going soft? I looked at my physique, bubbling out of the meatloaf - ok, soft is a possibility. I knew there was more to it... As I wracked my brain for any knowledge, I dozed off again.

"Don't forget the mission, Agent Buckley. The mission comes first."

Images flew through my head like a tasty flock of sparrows: the shelter, freeing the cats, getting caught, the euthanasia room, meowmy, a cat carrier, home in Albuquerque, chicken... CHICKEN! How could I have been so blind?

My memory came rushing back to me. I knew what I needed to do. It was time to contact Headquarters and get back on track.

Your story is starting to unfold into quite an exciting tale! It definitely is the beginning of a true to life Buckley Identity, except you're MUCH cuter thatn that Matt Damon fellow. Loves, Alexis
