    Joey is very young and being sick is not good at all. Please, take him to a vet immediately.

    Lily is right, he should go to the vets right away. He doesn't have to be 8 weeks old for medical attention if he's got something wrong. But, don't panic. He may just have had an upset tummy. And, cats, like people, sneeze without anything being wrong but a tickle in his nose. For the time being,until you can get him to the vet, feed him a little less. When he eats that and keeps it down for 1/2 hour, then try feeding him more.

    he should go to the vet. he can't get his SHOTS until he's 8 weeks, but he can, and should, have a checkup. he might be getting sick from playing too soon after eating, harley does that alot. he also could have allergies, that could be the cause of the sneezing. mittens has allergies, we found that out after having him for only a week.

    You need to have him examined. Vaccines can and are given before the 8 week mark depending on when the cat left the mother. If he was without mom before 8 weeks of age, then he should start receiving vaccines at 6 weeks. This is because maternal antibodies start to wear off at this time and he is not protected form the viruses out there. Please have him looked at and when he's over this crisis get his first round of shots and dewormer.
