Miles, sneezing cats are most often afflicted with the feline herpesvirus (FHV-1) and less commonly with Mycoplasmal or Chlamydophilal infections. Thankfully all usually remiss unaided within 1-3 weeks. I rarely treat these cats unless they become inappetent and require supplemental fluids, electrolytes, and feedings. As long as Boo remains otherwise well and appetent, I would continue to "watchful wait" as you've been doing. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
