thank you very much I appreciate your reply. unfortunately I live in Michigan and
the weather is not great year-round. However I have set up a cage in my garage
so that she can enjoy the weather in the warmer months and she absolutely
loves it. She does tend to calm down a bit once she's been outside for a while. I
wish Michigan had more warmer months then cold months but it is what it is so
Stella and I will have to deal with each other LOL. Any other suggestions would
be great again I appreciate your response thank you
