It sounds like your cat's sneezing could be due to several factors, such as respiratory infections, allergies, or environmental irritants. Since she has been sneezing repeatedly since this morning, let's consider a few possibilities.

Respiratory infections are a common cause of sneezing in cats and can be viral, bacterial, or fungal. If you notice additional symptoms like nasal discharge, coughing, or lethargy, an infection might be the culprit.

Allergies could also be responsible. Cats can be allergic to pollen, dust, or even certain types of cat litter. If you've recently changed her litter or introduced new cleaning products, this might be the cause of her sneezing.

Environmental irritants such as dust, strong odors, or smoke can also trigger sneezing. An air purifier might also be beneficial in reducing airborne irritants.

Using a humidifier to keep the air moist can reduce irritation in her respiratory system. If there’s any nasal discharge, gently wiping her nose with a warm, damp cloth can provide some relief.

However, if the sneezing persists or if she develops other symptoms like nasal discharge, coughing, or lethargy, it would be best to have her evaluated by a veterinarian. This will help determine the underlying cause and appropriate treatment.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask. Thank you.
