A light at the end of the tunnel

Good news — Cleo kept the medication — and a sizeable meal, a third of the can — down this evening! Right now she’s using the litter box... I’m sure you don’t want a picture of that…

As far as statistics go, however, she has now pooped three times since I started force-feeding her (boy was it a relief the first time, as it had been awhile); she also weighed in this morning at 8.8 pounds, only one-tenth under her weight a week and a half ago, so while she has not gained any weight she has apparently stopped losing it at the terrifyingly rapid pace that earned her a trip into the vet. So while she is still very sick, there is definitely a light at the end of the tunnel! (And not the kind that they tell you to stay away from, either...)
