Hmmmm.... panting, you say? It could be hissing - I had a ten day old kitten growl at me!
But it may be that they are trying to figure out what that smell is. Cat's have a sensing organ in the roof of their mouths and they kinda open their mouths and pant ( It's called flemming - not sure of the spelling)... where they use that organ to really detect/decipher smell.
ETA: some people call it a cat's "stinky face" - like they smelled something awful.
