Question fat ferret

I have two ferrets and one of them has recently gained alot of weight. could this be a sign of an illness; or just the normal get fat for winter process? His coat has also changed to a lighter more silver color.

I used to own ferrets and their coat definately does get fluffy and lighter in color for the winter.I don't know of any sickness that would make them gain weight .Maybe someone else may have more experience with this.
