What temperature is it currently in her cage?

I think if it's still over 75* a ceiling fan should be just fine. Some other things you can do to keep her cool:

- During the day, fill a water bottle and freeze it (I use the mini bottles), and put the frozen bottle on top of the cage or inside (furthest away from where she sleeps).

- Get a ceramic tile (about $0.70 at a hardware store) and put it in the cage so she can "splat" on it if she gets hot

- If she has a fleece snuggle pouch, change it to a lighter fabric like an old cotton shirt (making sure there are no loose threads)
