From: Agent Winnie
To: Mr. Whiskers

Subject: Mission Report
This move was unexpected. I don’t like the unexpected. I’ve been trying to determine where the workstations should be. I’d get them set in my head and find Agent Probie has already set them up. I don’t like the set up and we argued about it. He won’t listen to rea son. I have ideas. I should be able to choose my workstation. Not according to Agent Probie. It didn’t help that he was also arguing with Agent Zoe. I don’t know, or care, what they argued about. He is unreasonable.
Agent Zoe has been saying I’m not pulling my weight. I have been. I have been working all out on the archives. They are in such a mess. It goes back years! It’s unacceptable. I am aware that it isn’t all on Agent Probie, but he is not much of a leader. He is just another mediocre leader in a long line of such leaders. I didn’t know some of the agents that were lost, but they were somewhat lackadaisical about the reports. How can we function without proper documentation? Getting the reports in order is the first step. I will also be starting an index to them as well. It’s important to know what agents in the past have reported on certain subjects so we can have some way to predict what the humans are planning. It only makes sense.
I’ve tried to make Agent Probie understand how important the records are for forecasting human behavior. He just doesn’t want to know. I realize the loss of an agent places a burden on him. So I tried to talk to Agent Zoe who just told me to start pulling my weight. I’m so angry, I am afraid, I spat at her. I am aware I owe her an apology, but I can’t do that right now. I hope things settle down soon. Losing an agent on top of a move is very stressful and I’m trying to make allowances, but this team is in a shambles.
I’m trying my best not to let this disarray bother me, but it does. I can’t help it. I like order. I need order. So if I have to do it myself, I will have order. I don’t think it’s too much to ask to be allowed a little order in the affairs of this clowder.
The young human female has been in a terrible state. I can’t tell if its her own health or the loss of our agent that has her so distressed. I rather suspect it might be both. Apparently, humans can become attached to us, their prisoners.
I will continue to observe her behavior for further clues. As I do so, I will do what I can to bring order to our archives. The reports were never filed properly. I have found pamphlets and books mixed in with the reports. It’s no wonder we don’t know what to expect from the humans. We haven’t been looking at their behavior in the past, whether the behavior or the situation is similar. That’s what we should be doing.
