AllisonMarie0924 Thank you so much!! She's doing better today. She actually walked pretty steadily into her igloo, last night all she could do was crawl and she was so shaky. I have never been so scared. I'm about to check on her again and take her out for some cuddle time. Thanks again!

Lilysmommy You did a good job for now. In the future, it'd be better to keep her out, either under your shirt or on a heating pad set on low until she's completely warmed up. A warmed-up blanket doesn't stay warm for long, so you want to have her out until you know she's completely warm.

Definitely make sure you keep her out after a bath in the future until she's completely dry. For after baths, I usually used two towels and a few fleece blankets for Lily - out of the bath & into a towel to hang out while I cleaned up, out of that towel & into the second for a rub down, then into a fleece blanket & we went to sit down and cuddle. As we cuddled (I made sure we had at least 1-2 hours to cuddle after a bath), I switched her into dry fleece blankets every so often to make sure she wasn't staying damp from the blanket. Might have been overkill, but it worked for us!

post almost hibernation. help!!

My little girl was acting lethargic last night, and tonight she could barely wake up or walk. I read a lot online and it sounds like she was trying to hibernate. Her cage is plenty warm, but we had recently given her a bath and I don't think she ever warmed up enough afterwards. I took her out tonight and warmed her belly on my hands, then warmed up some fleece and wrapped her up in it. She ate a little food and is just laying there taking it easy. Is there anything else I can do to help her recover? I plan on checking her tummy in the morning and rewarming her blanket. I just want to make sure I'm doing everything humanly possible to help her right now.
