He seems to be sneezing and has a wheeze in his throat, if you know what I mean.

I'm not sure what could've caused this, he is an indoor cat only, and never goes out. The other day we ran out of cat food (Evo, for what its worth), and the store was closed, so we fed him one meal of tuna, and then for his next meal he has some Wellness dry food. Is it possible this sudden change in diet affected him this way? His brother is doing fine and experience the same brief dietary change.

Any tips? Do I just wait it out?
You need to bring your cat to vet right away if does not drink any water for a few days! Your cat will get dehydrated and that is not good! Call your vet up and let them know what is going on ,you can't let it pass.
