I've had 7 ferrets over the past 10 years and only 1 ever
did this. From the time I got him he would suddenly stop
while out playing and running around, completely flatten out
his body with all 4 legs spread out, and just lie there for
a few minutes. The first time he did it was a week or so
after I got him. I thought something was wrong but when I
went to grab him he jumped up and started playing again. He
repeated the action on a daily basis. None of my others
ever did this. Has anyone else had a ferret like this or is
it a sign of somethings wrong??
