Default smoke inhalation

I was frying something on the stove and it caught fire. I live in a small apartment and of course I had moved Rebels cage to the bedroom away from the kitchen with the window open before cooking but the smoke smell is everywhere. I moved her into the bathroom with the fan on and placed a wet towel against the door to protect her but I'm worried it's not enough. can anyone give advice on how to keep her inhaling smoke? I'm really worried she'll get sick ? even my dog was shaking.

Do you have a neighbor's home you can move her to until the smoke in your apartment dissipates?

Have you opened the windows in the remainder of the house and turned on the stove vent fan to eliminate as much of the smoke as possible?

yes, I've done all those things. I don't have a patio or backyard to move her to. do you think it's important to get her out of the apartment?

Only you can make that determination.

If the smoke is prevalent throughout the apartment, then it would be a good idea to take her to a friend or neighbor's house.

Putting the cage outside without supervision is never recommended -- there are too many risks of escape and/or predator attacks.

Cover the cage with a couple thicknesses of towels before carrying the cage through the smoky apartment if you choose to take her to a friend or neighbor until your apartment is totally cleared of smoke.

thanks for the advice. I took her in her travel cage to a friend's house. she had been a little scared and is currently hiding in my hair haha. I'll leave her here for the night so the smoke can clear out of my house. do I need to be worried about long term effects of smoke she may have inhaled?

There is little you can do about what smoke may have been inhaled.
When you bring her home, you can run a warm mist humidifier in the room she's in.
If you have or can get pure 100% eucalyptus essential oil, put a drop of that in the humidifier.
The warm moist air will help keep her airways open and clear.
Within a few weeks any effects of the smoke inhalation should be gone.

I'm moving the thread to the Follow-up section of the forum at this time.

Best wishes.
