Re: Anyone else have a cat that pants open-mouthed like a dog?
Jeanie, she's in great health as long as she doesn't eat anything that has to be surgically removed! This is totally normal for her, so we just stop every few minutes and make her take a break. I DO think that if we kept going swinging the toy around, she would keep going until her little heart exploded.
Rach, that's so cute that Nito meows so much he runs out of breath! And yes, we always have water available - sometimes when her cute little nose is particularly glowing I'll sit down next to her with the water bowl and dribble water into her mouth off my finger if she's worn herself out so much she doesn't want to lift her head and drink. That doesn't happen too often though - only when hubby's playing with her and he forgets that she doesn't know when to quit!
