Is our cat in danger of over heating?

We have an apartment with no air conditioning and it's going to be over 80 degrees today. Should I be worried about our indoor cat over heating?

We live in SF where it rarely gets above 70 degrees. However, today it's 11AM and it's already 80!!!! Our apartment has no air conditioning, but I have opened all the windows and turned on our one window fan.
I am worried that our cat will over heat. I've made sure she has plenty of water, but I'm still worried. I tried wiping her down with a wet towel (which she did not appreciate at all.) Am I being silly, or should this be a real concern? Is there something else I can do to make sure she doesn't get too hot?
