We find that the coexistence of ferromagnetism and superconductivity discovered recently can still be tolerated within the framework of the p-wave BCS-like mean-field theory if the structural anisotropy and the proper choice of the electronic occupation number are considered. Furthermore, only one type of electrons, in which the spin orientations are parallel to the direction of magnetization, can be paired in the general case. Thus the system keeps normal Fermi-liquid-like even at zero temperature, and it is supported by the experimental measurements on the specific heat.
