Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
Because of the frequency of the episodes, I wonder if Rufus is suffering from Petite mal Epileptic seizures. These are milder manifestations of Epilepsy that are harmless unless they move into full gran mal seizures. I would recommend that you have your vet examine him and run blood tests since other metabolic issues can cause neurologic issues such as you describe.
I worry that Rufus is having more of these episodes so it is important to find the cause for this that may or may not require treatment.
Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.
Sincerely, XXXXX XXXXX
