hi, congrats on the new kitty!

the lack of eating is an issue of concern. Try some baby food, the stuff that's just meat and water, most kittens love that.

I don't know if this warrants a visit to the emergency vet or not, hard to tell. He may not eat because his sense of smell is off due to sneezing, or he may just be freaked out about the new place. If his breathing is a bit wheezy or his temperature is up, i'd definitely take him to the emerg. vet. Kittens can crash quickly. Normally the sneezing just indicates he picked up the herpes virus (about 90% or more cats have been exposed to this virus in their lifetime). If that's the diagnosis, they just give an antibiotic to prevent a bacterial infection, you keep the kitty warm and hydrated, maybe have a humidifier/vaporizer going and nurse them thru it.

basically I'd trust my gut. If he looks or sounds bad, then off to the emerg. vet. Others might offer different advice.

good luck to you both,

Lisa S.
