Your kitten may be to hot they can pant in the heat also if the kitten has been running and had a lot of exercise this can cause panting and the kitten should be allowed to rest. If the kitten is to hot then being removed to a cool place immediately and offered water to drink.

This can be a sign of dehydration. However, cats also do this as a form of sensory perception and/or communciation. They have sensory receptors for a variety of senses such as smell located around the mouth region. They are also able to emit their own smell (kind of like a dog marking territory) to communciate with other animals.

Panting in cats can be cause by a lack of water, or dehydration. Always consult your vet when a change occurs in your pet. More then likely, your cat is 'flemming', which looks just like panting, but is actually the cat smelling to better get a feel of the situation. They do this usually when scared or uncertain.
