How do cats tolerate heat?

How do cats tolerate heat? After all, they do not sweat, like people, do not evaporate water from the tongue like dogs... It turns out that cats skillfully use certain laws of physics.

Cats in the heat go somewhere in the shade, lie sideways to the ground, trying to occupy the largest possible area

The heat exchange between mobile and immobile bodies is possible, as we know, only if one body is colder and the other body is warmer. And the greater the difference in the degree of heating or cooling of bodies, the better the processes of heat transfer.

Cats in the heat go somewhere in the shade, lie sideways to the ground, trying to occupy the largest possible area. Since the ground under the cat is heated by solar heat and hot air is less than the cat itself and surrounding objects, very soon there is a temperature difference, and the cat begins to get rid of excess heat. That's why, by the way, you can catch a cold on the beach in the hottest weather, if for a long time you are lying motionless on the sand.
