Question Hedgie Noises

Recently, I was spying on Whitaker in his cage while he was running around. At first I thought my cat who was also in my room was making this odd noise (which I later chalked up to Whit scratching himself), but then I kept listening. I heard him sniffing around, followed by a low/deep frog like hum. *sniff* *sniff* *hummm* then he would repeat and explore his cage.
Days before I also heard a slight squeak noise, once on two different nights.

I looked up some resources to help explain these noises and they explained the squeaking could be a sign of happiness (since he wasn't hurt at all), but the closest thing to the humming I found was a possible explanation of a purring like noise. Does this seem to be the case, or has anyone else experienced this?

My Bella makes a low purring noise - it seems to be mostly when I try to wake her earlier than normal, so I think it's an unhappy noise? (which is too bad - it's very cute)

One was probably a growl sound which they make and I find it very cute, Floyd makes that sound sometimes when my head descends into his cage suddenly at night to see what he's up to(lol), or when wake him up. Sometimes you don't even hear the sound, but feel the vibration; it's cool really.

And the squeaking sound, they make when they drink or sniff around really hard(at least my hedgehog does that). It's fine too.
