DISEASES OF FERRETS. FERRETS like other ani-mals, including dogs and petstock, as well as horses, cattle,sheep and hogs, are subject todisease. These are few—nomore than most animals areliable to, but being virulent(virus) are mostly contagious.Distemper, foot rot and mangeare the worst. Swelled neck orjaw, and insects, while they areto be contended with, are notso serious. Some claim thatsweating is distemper in adifferent form but whether adifferent disease or only a different form, it willreceive mention a little further on. Although ferret diseases generally make theirappearance in mild form, remember that if notattended to promptly, will not only result indeath to the one first afflicted but will spread toothers.

200 FERRET FACTS AND FANCIES. The sick had best be kept separate—no two to-gether. True, disease is sometimes fatal, butwhat animal or fowl is exempt from disease anddeath? The average age must be considered,which is only about three years. Breeders and raisers of ferrets who have hadyears of experience say that nearly all diseasesare caused by over or improper feeding andallowing hutches or boxes where kept to becomefilthy. The sleeping quarters and nest must bedry or attacks of distemper or other disease isapt to occur. A draft or current of air, from awindow or other opening, has often caused death,as ferrets are very susceptible to cold. Carelessness in allowing the living quartersto remain uncleaned of droppings, sour dishes,with possibly foul nests, either or all may lead toan outbreak or epidemic of disease.

You are invited to stay and browse through my stream. Here’s a quick index to my little corner of Flickr:

Automobile Photographs
: This is a very large collection of images whose primary, but not exclusive, focus is on American automotive classics. Images are organized by decade, by manufacturer, and by topics (such as convertibles, station wagons, muscle cars, etc.)

Central Illinois (except Springfield)
: Central Illinois (except Springfield): Photos relating to the middle section of the "Land of Lincoln" (except for the Capital City of Springfield) may be found in this collection. Every city and town I’ve photographed is contained within its own set, and rural (as in "countryside") photographs are grouped by county.

Springfield, Illinois
: All of my photographs of Springfield and the Abraham Lincoln Sites are in this collection. For the City of Springfield, there are separate sets for the Capitol Complex, Downtown (including the Old State Capitol), Neighborhoods, Parks, Illinois State Fairgrounds and more. Photographs of Lincoln sites include the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, Lincoln Home National Historic Site, Lincoln Tomb, and so on. Also in the Lincoln "All About Abe" (Set) are a few Lincoln sites not located in Springfield.

The Illinois State Fair
: My collection of photographs of the Illinois State Fair. The fair offers something for everyone. Grab a corn dog and lemon shake-up, and come take a look!

Beyond Central Illinois
: Other locales in the United States and Canada including New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Seattle.

In addition to my location-based sets, here are links to some "topical" collections and sets I’ve put together:

Barbers & Barber Shops
: Traditional barbers and barber shops are on the endangered species list. But there are still plenty to be found if you go looking for them.

Almost Everything Else. Check It Out!!!
: Included topics range from man’s first walk on the moon to small town schools and churches, and from Soft-Coated Wheaten Terriers (our favorite breed) to things that are abandoned, neglected, weathered, or rusty.

Thanks for stopping by! – myoldpostcards (Randy von Liski)
