We have reason to believe that Willa is a former housecat, so she is now in a safe house -- the same safehouse that Swift stayed in on his recovery from feraldom. Mary Jean reports that Willa "has been silent, except for a few growls when I’ve gotten too close. For the first few hours, she remained reclining in her cage with her head sticking out (chin on the floor). Then, a few minutes ago, she used the litter box and decided to remain in the box. So she is lying in the clean end of the litter box, eyes wide open. She lets me stroke her head with a plastic spoon, but I’m not convinced that she enjoys it (yet)."
Progress report and pictures to come.
