Please rush her to the vet ASAP ! If she has difficulty breathing this is a medical emergency...

Is her breathing shallow? I'm not a vet but if her breathing is shallow & her
tongue is sticking out..I would bring her to a vet.

The breathing part is confusing if it is shallow....straight to the vet....if it is just her tongue sticking Smoke and the female rescue I have do that all the time after sniffing things. Also when cats get really winded they do pant (really cute to see). Focus on her breathing....eating and toileting....those are the indicators for something amiss, if all those seem fine and she just has her tongue out, shouldn't be any need to panick.
