a sneezing cat is nothing to be concerned about. I would be concerned if the nose becomes plugged up, the cat will stop eating. Cats do not eat if they cannot smell it.
Mine did the same thing... the Vet said she had a slight respiratory problem but nothing to be worried about, should clear up on its own. Which it did!
She still sneezes every now and then but cats noses are sensitive so it could be allergies or just all the smells around her.

It's true, a sneezing cat does not indicate some awful illness. However, I wouldn't go so far as to say "it's nothing". Check your kitty's eyes to see if they're running or "gunky". Runny eyes can indicate an upper respiratory infection. If she's wheezing, that's also a warning sign. This things come on slowly and build up steam as the URI gets worse. Cats have a higher body temp, so you can't tell just by touching them if they have a fever. They will also eat even when a URI is in it's beginning stages. Keep an eye on your kitty. A few sneezes now and then could indicate, like Izzie, that she's been under the bed exploring and inhaled some dust (not that you're a bad housekeeper or anything ;-) ) But continuous sneezing means you need to get to the vet for some Clavamox antibiotic.
