What does it mean if my cat sneezes 3-4 times in a row? She has no other symptoms. She's 2 years old.

People often experience a multiple sneeze reaction when their nasal passage is irritated, and so can cats. The brain tells the body that it needs to clear the irritant out and this can result in forceful or repeated sneezes. If the sneezing is persistant it could be that your cat has an allergy. If it is temporary then it could be a simple virus or situational irritant like dust. If the sneezing is accompanied by mucus build up, wheezing, coughing, lethargy, etc. your cat could have an upper respitory infection and require antibiotics, at which point you will need to see your vet. If it persists without other symptoms it is most likely an allergy and I would recommend chatting with your vet about it as well.
