Subject: getting lazy and fat

I have a 3-4 yr. old female ferret, Chiana, who has been acting
strange for the past couple of months. She sleeps much more than she
used to, and often I will find her passed out in the middle of the
floor. It's as if she was on her way somewhere and just wasn't
motivated enough so she may as well lay down and go to sleep. When
she is up she doesn't play very often, just sits around or is flat
ferreting. She doesn't seem to be feeling unwell or have any symptoms
of anything, but because of her inactivity she is getting fat!! I
think it first started out that she was mourning another ferret that
we had put to sleep but she doesn't seem depressed anymore, just
lazy! Should I be concerned?
