We often see dogs panting and don’t assume that it is a cause for concern. However, cats don’t tend to pant often. So what does it mean when they do? And is there anything you can do to calm your cat down when it happens?
Cats typically don’t breathe through their mouths. A cat’s normal breathing rhythm should be quite smooth with a normal rate being 15 to 30 breaths per minute on average. Panting means that your cat is putting quite a bit of effort into getting back to normal.
So if your cat is panting it is best to take a look at why this might be the case and then figure out if you need to act.
