So the vet called. Apparently there is something wrong with Cobweb's intestines. She said it could be irritable bowel disease ... or it could be cancer. To find out which would cost lots of money we don't have, so she suggested that we just treat Cobweb as if it's irritable bowel disease and see if that works. The pills are apparently not expensive. She said some cats with irritable bowel disease need to be on the pills for the rest of their lives and some only need it for a few months, so we'll see how it goes. We'll take her back to the vet in a month to see if she has gained any weight.

I'm feeling relieved that the problem might be something that isn't too serious and is easily treatable. In another month, if she hasn't gained any weight or has (as is possible) lost more, then I'll freak out.
