Some are common and harmless, while others may be signs of a medical problem. Here are some of the most common reasons why cats stick out their tongues
They lick their fur to remove dirt, debris, and parasites. Sometimes, their tongue may get stuck sticking out while they are grooming themselves.
Cats have a very strong sense of smell. They use their tongues to taste the air to gather information about their surroundings.
Just like dogs, cats can overheat. When they overheat, they may pant with their tongue sticking out to cool down.
Dental problems, such as tooth decay or gum disease, can cause cats to stick out their tongues. This is because dental problems can make it painful for cats to eat and drink.
In some cases, a cat's tongue sticking out may be a sign of a medical condition, such as a neurological disorder or a respiratory infection.
If your cat's tongue is sticking out for an extended period of time, or if it is accompanied by other symptoms such as lethargy, drooling, or difficulty eating or drinking
