Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help you today.

I'm sorry for this concern for Brumas.

There actually could be several different reasons why a cat might start to sneeze including an early upper respiratory infection (uri), dust (secondary to litter or things in the environment), polyps in the nose, or foreign bodies...just to name a few examples.

I wouldn't consider this to be an ER type of situation, though, since he's eating. It's quite possible that this will be a transitory episode but if he should still be sneezing by Monday and/or other signs develop (such as weepy eyes), then a vet visit may be prudent.

I hope this helps. Deb

Many thanks. I didn't think it was urgent as he is bouncing as usual but wanted to be sure.

Always best to be safe in these situations and better to ask than to worry:) So glad you did.

Best of luck with him. Kind regards, Deb
