While a lot of owners are aware of heatstroke in dogs, cats are thought to handle the heat better than other animals because of the theory that they have evolved from desert animals. The truth is that cats do not tolerate heat any better. It is easy for cats to overheat in warm weather because, unlike humans, they cannot remove layers of clothing when it gets too hot; and they do not always have the option of moving themselves to cooler places to avoid the sun. Cats are also unable to cool down by sweating in the way humans do, so they are less capable of regulating their body temperature. Cats only sweat through their foot pads, and they also pant to get rid of excess heat.
