    Thank you...I will check into that tomorrow ( 10-19 )...I want to
    keep her calm and comfortable....I have been putting towels down
    on the bottom of her cage...she seems to have liked that better
    then the grates..
    She did really well tonight...She ate some carrots for the first
    time sense she was sick...The kidney beans are not going over to
    well for her..So we tried her on some peas...Nothing...I'm sure
    tomorrow will be better for her ...I hope

    Thanks Again
