My kitten, Squeaks, pants like a dog a lot! especially after a long time of playing. Help!?

My kitten is seven months old, and ever since we got him (he was about 6 weeks or older) he pants like a dog after he plays for a while. Does he have a heart disease, or is the panting just a character trait?

This is not normal, but it could be from a bunch of things, like lack of nutrition or reduced lung function. Cats should not be panting like dogs after activity. Take a video and show it to your vet the next time that you have an appointment. He may need some tests to determine what the overexertion is caused by, and if medicine can help. Thanks for being concerned about your fur friend!! ^_^
