Well as of now I have no plans for animals but the fogger is going to be protected by an egg crate "cage". Ultrasonic foggers don't use heat and don't get hot but you don't want to come in contact with the focal point of the fogger as it can drive water under the skin and boy does it hurt.

Here is a snip from Humidifier - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"Ultrasonic Humidifier — A metal diaphragm vibrating at an ultrasonic frequency creates water droplets that silently exit the humidifier in the form of a cool fog. Ultrasonic humidifiers use a piezo-electric transducer to create a high frequency mechanical oscillation in a body of water. The water tries to follow the high frequency oscillation but cannot because of its comparative weight and mass inertia. Thus, a momentary vacuum is created on the negative oscillation, causing the water to cavitate into vapor. The transducer follows this with a positive oscillation that creates high pressure compression waves on the water’s surface, releasing tiny vapor molecules of water into the air. This is an extremely fine mist, about one micrometre in diameter, that is quickly absorbed into the air flow."

Will post a build update with photos later tonight.
