Why Do Some Cats Pant Like Dogs?

Updated: May 16, 2023

Did you notice your cat panting like a dog?

Well, in some cases, this is completely normal. If it’s a hot day ♨️ out or if you’ve just had a long and strenuous play session with Kitty, then she’s probably panting because she’s overheated or tired 🫠. Once Kitty has calmed down and caught her breath, she should return to her normal breathing.

Anxious and stressed cats also tend to pant. Did your cat move locations recently or did a stranger come to the house? 😵‍💫 These are completely normal reasons for cat panting.

However, if the panting is not abating after a long while, or if it’s accompanied by other symptoms like lethargy, coughing or wheezing 😮‍💨, then it’s time for an emergency visit to the vet. And ASAP! Kitty might be having breathing difficulties and the faster the vet visit, the higher the chances of recovery.

Eating a raw diet reduces the chance of dehydration in cats as it retains all the natural moisture available in the prey. Get your Raw Gourmet packs here!
