Our expert says:
If cats are really hot, they do pant. Normally though, they just seek cool places to lie so heat can escape by conduction. They will also lose heat through the nose, ears and feet. If necessary, they pant like dogs. Also, they tend to be not very active, therefore they generate less heat. Very interesting question!
