Kitten Allergies?

One of my kittens, Zoe, sneezes quite a few times a day. Maybe around 10 times... ??
The other kitten Chloe doesn't sneeze at all.
Does anyone have any ideas why kittens/cats sneeze ??

Quite often sneezing means an upper respiratory infection but since that is contagious then Chloe would be sneezing as well. Maybe Zoe has allergies?

I just had another thought ...did Chloe and Zoe just have vaccinations? Sometimes cats/kittens will sneeze alot after being vaccinated.

I had a kitten that used to have severe sneezing fits. They freaked me out every time they happened because I didn't think they were going to stop.

The short version of this story is about a year later, the vet diagnosed her with herpes in her nose. Hard to diagnose. Definitely have the vet check it out and bring up upper-respiratory infections, allergies, and maybe herpes. Like I said, it took a year to diagnose Booger because the vet didn't even think of herpes.

Thanks rainbow and Equla! I wouldn't say Zoe has sneezing 'fits' but just that she randomly sneezes throughout the day. Can't be serious then ... ?
We take them back to the vet in a couple weeks for another check up to see if ear mites and parasites are completely gone.
I didn't get them vaccinated.
I will bring up upper respiratory infection and herpes in the nose to the vet and see what she thinks/finds.
