Allergies or a cold?

True is extremely stuffed up and has a cough! He is not overly fussing except for when he gets coughing. No one else in our household has any colds right now. Last night we spent the evening at my sisters house. True was fine while we were there, I held him most of the time but I did put him down on the couch on a blanket to change him and he laid there and played for a while. My sister has to cats and a dog. My older DS has severe cat allergies and gets asthmatic if around them, he has a puffer for this.
Is it possible that True is allergic too? How would I ever know if he has a cold or allergies?
Poor guy...I get so stressed when I think there is something wrong!

Allergies at this age are usually considered rare (but not impossible).
