Salivating Cat

Yesterday our cat started drooling profusely, enough to be noticeable on bed/ custion etc. At first I thought he had messed. Seems to be eating fine Regularly goes outside and wondering if he ate something unhealthy? Hard to tell if he is sleeping more than usual because wants to stay out all night and sleep all day. Live on acreage therefore exposed to wild animals. Tried to open cat's mouth but wouldn't let me. Not foaming at mouth but I am concerned. Please help.

You'll have to take your cat to the vet.

It could have been poisoned, could have a broken/abcessed tooth, or could have a foreign body caught in the teeth/throat.

I would go ASAP.

Your cat needs to see a vet ASAP. It could be an abcess/broken tooth, irritation in the throat, toxins, etc. etc. which only your vet can answer.

Good luck.

Hi TheGang, have to agree you need to take your kitty to the vet. ASAP. The original poster to this thread does not seem to be around anymore so will not likely answer you here.

Please let us know what the outcome/prognosis is once you have seen your vet. Good luck.
