A. If your cat is sneezing could be a cat flu. If the nasal discharge is clear don't worry but if it gets green maybe is been complicated by a bacterial infection and in that case will need antibiotics prescribed by a vet. Something home-made you can do is give your cat tuna (natural) because is rich in Lysin, aminoacid that helps in cats with respiratory infections to deal with it better.
