First winter. Still learning what's "normal". Her DOB I place at 8/15/14. Wonder if her heater is powerful enough. Don't want to turn it up too high, but when I dip my hand in lately, I wonder if it's warm enough. Heater set at 86ish I believe. She's right near a window.

Thanks for all amazing feedback!!!

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).. though that normally happens to places where they are kept indoors and the weather becomes much cooler.
