Aaack, premature send! Wasn't done editing!

I meant to mention that it's *really* unusual for ferrets to have problems
like this with pred. Don't want to mislead anyone or scare anyone away
from the stuff, which has saved so many ferrets. It's on my brain because
my ferret Sonic (who I'm quite sure you're all totally sick of hearing
about) is one of the few who does have this problem.

OK, that's all. I'll be quiet now. :)
