What are the symptoms of a cat experiencing heat stroke & how can we help prevent this?
It's very unusual for a cat to get heat stroke, and it's not something we would normally see. Cats will normally take care of this themselves and move away to a cooler spot or seek shade. If you see your cat panting or breathing heavily, this could be a sign of heat stress. The first thing to do is try and cool your cat down, and if the cat is still distressed after this, then you need to go and see your vet.
Always make sure that you have lots of fresh water and plenty of shade around, and if it's an indoor cat, make sure that there's good ventilation through the house, particularly on a hot day.
