Cold-like signs and symptoms such as runny nose, itchy eyes, congestion, sneezing, and sinus pressure are caused by hay fever, also called allergic rhinitis.

Hay fever is caused by the allergic reaction of cats, dogs and other animals with fur or feathers to outdoor or indoor allergens, such as pollen, dust mites, or tiny flecks of skin and saliva (pet dander).
