My 6 week old kitten is sneezing. He was tired yesterday morning but very playful last night and to

I don't want to ignore a problem but i dont want to overreact and run to the vet. He is sneezing only about 4 to 6 times a day since Thursday. His dad thinks its usually after he eats and maybe because he sticks his entire head in the food bowl, but I'm not sure. He was very sleepy Sunday morning, but bucked up that night and today. I googled kitten sneezing and read a little about URI. He had loose stool sunday morning but it was back to normal last night. Doesn't seem to have runny nose or eyes.

    Upper respiratory infections can be deadly to a very young kitten such as yours. It is one of the leading causes of kitten mortality. With the holiday coming up on Thursday, I honestly would not wait. At least call your vet and ask if they want to see him. URIs can get much worse very quickly.
