And one other suggestion about that crate she is in...seems like there might be enough room to put a temporary roost between the bars? Then you could see if she is up on the roost (more normal, I would think) or needing more warmth (down on the heating pad)...how'd she like the blow dryer?
She didn't mind the hair dryer, actually! I turned it on and let it sit for minute for her to get used to the noise and then just put in on the floor. She didn't mind
