When dogs get too hot, they pant to cool off because they lack sweat glands. While most people have seen a dog pant, it’s far less common to see a cat pant. When your cat pants, what does that mean?
Surprisingly, cats may pant because they’re too hot as well. Cats may also pant because they’re stressed out or because they have a breathing problem. Since panting in a cat occurs so rarely, make sure your cat isn’t too hot or stressed out before considering possible health problems.
Remember, a panting cat could be temporary but if it persists, it could indicate a more serious problem.
