Need a bit of advice here. My kitten has always the mad half hour kind of guy, never takes things lightly. When he decides it's playtime he means it, goes till he's exhausted. He's always panted after a play sesion (he's now 5 and a half months) and I never thought anything of it. Never having a cat before I thought this was normal .A few cat owning friends said they's never seen their cats pant. I've just finished reading a coupla atrticles in a cat magazine and one said their cat did that and he had heart problems and died at an early age. Anyone know anything about this? Or does anyone elses cat pant? He's going to the vets at the end of the month but I would take him sooner if it turned out to be an unusual thing for a cat to do.
