Subject:Re: Humidifiers
Message:Thankyou yes that is helpful.. I don't really heat the office that much as all the windows face east and it heats up very nicely. Ziggy is getting used to my misting her everyday - still isn't completely thrilled. Doesn't seem to know what to do yet with a shallow dish. But she has used the water dish.

She will play on the second playgymn I got her. She even crawled off and took a peck at the computer (while I was there). She is getting more adventuresome.   Karen
