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.

Don't leave me hanging! I gotta know what happened next... waiting for the next episode.....
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
