Hera Update

She's still tilty, but she's not having any trouble eating, drinking, or getting around the cage. I haven't seen her use the wheel at all, which is definitely abnormal, but she's mainly been hanging out in hammocks and baskets and other things high off the ground, so her coordination can't be too impaired. I haven't seen her fall over since Saturday, although Calliope's been taking advantage of her compromised balance to push her down and steal things ever so often.

She does not want to take her medication, even in juice, but she hasn't figured out yet that she doesn't have to swallow just because something's in her mouth, so the forcible syringe method is working fine. And she gets a treat afterward, so if she figures out the connection she might stop squirming quite so much.
