    Thank You, All you peep keepers seem to be friendly.i am very concerned about the ventilation that is needed? I here to use cat litter on bottom to absorb the moisture? some people said, not to use newspaper?,and how do you lower the temperature, 5 degrees a week till it gets down to ???. I am doing a lot of research on this site, but ,there seems to be different ways for different people. thank You donna
