my kitten is drooling!!!

Hi Guys,

My 6 month old kitten is drooling while mumming????? is that normal?
I read online, that maybe the kitten has something wrong in his mouth or worst case he has a fatal illness...


thanks

I used to play with this cat, Noah, when I volunteered at the humane society. Whenever you gave him affection he'd purr and drool profusely. He had no medical issues, he was just over excited.

Re: my kitten is drooling!!!

My cat drools when she is extremely stressed out (i.e. vet or car rides) but it doesn't seem like this is the case.

I knew a cat once that would drool a lot when given silvervine powder (or matatabi - the Japanese equivalent of catnip). If your cat seems normal otherwise, and is eating well with a normal activity level, I doubt it is a cause for concern. You could give your vet a call and ask though, just for peace of mind.

It won't hurt to have a vet check out his mouth. Teeth problems will make them drool.

I've said this before (I think), but my girl cat all over the place. She's perfectly heathy (just had her teeth done in December), but if you start petting or rubbing her on the chin or around her mouth she drools everywhere, while purring up a storm.

Jack is my drooler! You never let him on your lap for a pet if you plan on leaving the house soon--otherwise you'll have big drops of drool on your shirt.
