Panting is a behavior that is mainly associated with dogs and it’s something they do to keep themselves cool during hot weather or when they’re dehydrated. Similarly, cats can also use this technique to cool down.
If your kitty is panting because they’re nauseous you might also notice other signs like excessive vocalization and pacing. They might start drooling or constantly licking their lips.
Panting isn’t always linked to stress or high temperatures, but instead, it can be a sign of something more serious, like a respiratory infection which can make breathing difficult.
