My rat is making noises when he sleeps?
My younger rat is making snuffling noises when he sleeps. He only does this when he sleeps. He is otherwise healthy. He eats and drinks and plays with his brother. He lets us handle him etc. Should I take him to the vet anyways?
I’ve heard of wuffeling. Could that be what he is doing? I video taped it, but there is no way to post it here.

He's dreaming. The snuffling noise is known to be laughing among rodents. I've heard it described as chuffing sounds. He's having fun while asleep. YES-he's laughing and playing while asleep.

Yes, he may have an illness that is affecting him - rats are very good at hiding illness when they are awake but they can't do it when they're sleeping
