• Don't be surprised if your cat doesn't enjoy the damp towels or sheets. Try your best to keep cooling her when she's calm. The minute she trys to get away from you, let her. Holding her down and making her struggle to get away will only make her hotter.
• If your cat is panting like a dog, your cat could be overheating or have a cardiac problem. Call your local clinic and ask for directions. If you must bring your cat to the vet, turn on your car's air conditioning and line the cat's carrier with a damp cloth. He might not like it, but this is an emergency.
Calm your cat down. If she's running around, she'll get even hotter.
Get a cloth or a paper towel damp and gently stroke your cat with the damp cloth or paper towel on the top of its head and its back. Do this a couple of times a day if it's very hot.
Put a sheet or towel over your kitty's favorite armchair. This makes it cooler for her.
If you only have room air conditioners, put the cat in the room with the a/c. Keep the blinds, drapes and doors closed. In addition to keep the room cooler, this might also bore your cat, so she or he has nothing to do but lay down and relax, keeping her cooler. Just make sure her litter pan and water bowl are near her or him.
Keep two water bowls for your cat. Make sure the first one has plenty of ice cubes and leave it out for him. Put the second one in the refrigerator, to keep it cold, but not frozen. When the one he's using gets warm, switch them. Repeat this so the water is always cool and refreshing for your cat.
Get a small kitchen towel, soak it with water and place in the freezer. When the towel gets cold enough, place it on a smooth kitchen or bathroom floor for your cat to lie on, if its too cold for your cat, simply move the towel for your cat to enjoy the slightly cooler kitchen (or bathroom) floor
