I have been researching this. I am looking for one that has a steamer function for my cat with a respiratory infection. Honestly, I have not tried this (reviews look good) but I am pointing this item out because I am really impressed with it's multi function. It can be use for steam, or cool mist for skin care or as a humidifier. With the wand it would not be too hard to stick this under a chair to keep the cat from knocking it over.http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004ML ... N08Z0FPLG4
Anyway I thought I'd point out my favorite and most likely purchase after looking around.
