Wilhelmina's Day at the Vet
She has cancer. Or at least, that's their best bet as to why she's anemic and not gaining any weight despite eating well. She got a steroid injection, 'depo', but if she doesn't respond to it, the vet recommends euthanasia.

Oh, and her eyes? Partially detached retinas. She may be completely blind in one eye, as the vet couldn't track her retina at all, whereas she could a bit on the other. This poor baby was out in the wild, half blind and sick. It makes my heart ache and my nose sting with pending tears.

Understandably, Wilhelmina has been on my mind a lot lately.

I feel like her appetite has gotten even better since the steroid injection (there's no way I'd be able to pill her), but I don't know if that's just wishful thinking.

She's such a good girl, and getting better at being handled every day. The vet didn't have to sedate her for the injection. ... But maybe that's because Wilhelmina's so weak... When she naps, she falls over like a narcoleptic kitten.

I hope she responds to the steroids, but I'm not optimistic. It makes me cry just to admit it.
