No,he wouldn't really show aging signs this early.
It sounds like it may be the start of an RI.A rat will still act normal in the early stages of a respitory infection.
Is there any other sounds when he breaths???
If it is the start of a RI,then he needs antibiotics so it doesn't get worse.Unfortunatly RI's are REALLY common in rats.
What kind of cat litter?
The dusty,rocky kind of litter is not good for them.It is really dusty and that can definatly get into the lungs.I know on the back of some of those cat litters it says it is okay to use for small animals...but I wouldn't! Yesterdays News is perfect tho and is a paper,pellet kind of litter.
I would keep your eye on him.
