cat sticking out her tongue

my cat has had her tongue sticking out of her mouth for 2 days now do you know what could be the problem?

Answer by Kate
well sometimes when my cat is washing she stops and leaves her toungue out for a few minutes. It's almost like she doesn't know it's there, which is strange, but she always pops it back after a short while.

if your cat has had his tongue out for a few days, it could possibly be caused by either having some teeth missing, some nerve damage in the mouth which means they cannot feel that the tongue is outside. or even possibly some illness to do with the brain which means messages like your tongue is outside are not geting through.

As it has been two days I think a visit to the vets is called for for further investigation.

best wishes and I hope all is well soon
