How Cats Keep Their Cool In Hot Weather

There are all kinds of ways cats keep cool in hot weather, although eating ice cream cones isn't one of them.
Dear Thomasina...
How do cats keep cool in hot weather? It's blazing hot today, and I'm very worried about my outside cat.

Hey Concerned...
I don't think you need to worry about your boy. Cats know how to keep cool in hot weather. We're homeotherms (We're what??? The human typist strikes again, and I don't like the the sound of that!). Oh, I see. It means we're able to adjust internal heat gain and loss so we can maintain a constant body temperature. Well, I knew that!
