Hi this is Dr. Hill. Sorry Samuel is not feeling well. Sneezing and a loss of appetite can be signs of a viral upper respiratory infection. With not eating for two days, it is important to get him evaluated by a local veterinarian. Cats that do not eat for several days can develop a secondary liver problem called hepatic lipidosis. Are you able to take him to your veterinarian today? If not, there are a couple of things you can try at home.
