My car is slobbering :(

My cat has started slobbering and drooling ALOT! He is about 4 years old now, and in the past 3-4 days, we have noticed him slobbering ecessively. At first, we noticed it when he is was laying on my husbands lap, there were wet spots on my husbands jeans and we thought his nose was just running, or had a cold. But last night was awful. Where ever he laid on the bed, there were spots wet enough to soak through the bedspread and the sheet, and mattress cover. We found 3 spots like that! Anyone have any ideas? I called around and that there aren't any emergancy clinic open today because of the FOOT of snow we got last night. so I would be greatful for any help


Sorry about the double posting. I posted in one forum and then saw the Health forum so reposted

Do a search on this site, there are probally other postings that can explain more,

I've never dealt with that, but you may also try to call a Vet at home for more guidance,

keep up, sounds like your little fella needs the extra effort.

excessive salivation can be due to a lot of things, dental disease prob being the most common with cat flu a close second. some cats also drool a lot when very contented and happy, my moms cat has can get you very wet during a good grroming session!
i would get his mouth thoroughly checked as soon as.

Could he have eaten anything he shouldn't have? How does he seem otherwise?

I hope you have taken care of this by now. Whatever the reason, your cat dehydrates drastically while salivating.
It can be as mentioned above - due to a cold (URI), bad teeth, a reaction to flea medicine (if you have applied that recently on the back of his neck), or a combination of (these) things.
Let us know how your kitty is doing.
Best wishes

explore, doubt and discover for yourself what is the truth.
