they sneeze a lot. some get red discharge from their eyes and nose. differing temperments or unusual lethargy. but rats will sleep most of the day as they are mainly nocturnal animals. but give us more details and we can tell you if its just a normal rat or if its a sign of illness. is it alert when you hold it or sluggish?

They do sleep a lot, especially if they've been held a lot or more active than normal. It's fine for him to sleep all day long.

My rats will leap out of the cage any chance they get.

If they are sleeping and it's the only chance you have to let them out, just open the cage, he'll wake up and see the open door. :)
