Do Cats Drool?

I woke up this morning and there was a wet spot right next to where one of my cats was sleeping. It was clear, I think. It was definitely not urine and I don't think it smelled like poop, it was kinda sour smelling. Do you think he was drooling? I don't know if this is weird or not for a cat to drool, this is the first I've seen a wet spot like this before. If it isn't drool what else could it be?

One of my cats drools, but it's only when I am patting her. I've never seen her drool any other time...and no drool pools

Could there have been something that she was licking? That would have left a wet spot.

Some cats drool when they are very happy, being petted and purring. Some will drool when they knead.

Drooling can also be a sign of dental problems.

I had a cat that drooled every time it got on a blanket (because it would knead the blanket). My other cat would drool occasionally when being petted. YES they drool!

I don't know, I just thought it was weird if it was drool considering I haven't ever come across a spot like that before. UNLESS... he was having a really really good dream!

Gatsby was a terrible drooler. A happy drooler, that is when happy expect drool. It seemed to get worse when he got older. The smelly drool could have something to do with teeth problems. Gatsby was too old to have teeth removed but his drool did stink towards the end of his life.
