Why do cats sneeze?

Today my cat was sitting beside me on the arm of my computer chair. She was cleaning herself and suddenly went into a fit of sneezes. After it was over, she acted as if nothing had happened. It was as if someone had held some pepper very close to her nose. I don't think I've ever seen a cat sneeze so much before. Why do cats sneeze? Does your cat sneeze often? Do you think there could have been an allergen on her coat that she was sneezing at? What's your thoughts on the subject. Would love to hear your opinion.

"Pets and people sneeze for two reasons. Either the membranes that line their nose are inflamed or a foreign object of some sort is present in the nostrils. Nasal membranes become inflamed either because the pet was exposed to a chemical irritant or it has contracted a respiratory tract infection" I found this on http://www.2ndchance.info/sneezing.htm maybe when she was cleaning herself,a foreign object was in her nostrils.Just a guess.Hope this helps!
