Friend, common causes for excessive sneezing in a cat are infections, allergies, dust, a nasal foreign body, etc. to name a few causes. I am going to make some recommendations that you can try at home; if the sneezing continues he should be seen by your vet for a hands-on examination. This is what you can try:

1- Benadryl (diphenhydramine) 25mg 1/2 tablet every 12 hours. You can buy benadryl over the counter in any pharmacy.

2- Open the hot water in your bathroom and allow him to breathe the vapor for 3-5 minutes; this will help clearing his nasal cavity.

3- If no improvement after doing the above I would have him checked by your vet for a hands-on examination.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service. If you have any follow-up questions don't hesitate to ask. If finished, please take a moment to rate my service. See you again soon!
