My cat drools thick mucus

by Kathy
(Clovis, CA)

Hi there,

My cat is almost 5 and used to be mainly indoors but has been spending about half her time outside now (about 2 weeks) which is what we prefer. For the past week, she has been drooling mucus. It looks foamy and like egg-white consistency. When we see this happening, we usually have to take a tissue and wipe it off. She appears to be eating and drinking normally. This has been happening at least once a day. Her eyes are clear, nose feels normal, and her disposition still seems friendly. I have not found anything on the internet that sounds like this, other than cat asthma, but she appears to be breathing just fine. Your help would be appreciated.

in wonder if she is finding some cat nip from somewhere outside. Sometimes a cat will froth at the mouth when they have had too much catnip.

If you do not think this is the case then your only option would be for a vet to take a look at her. She may have something wrong in her mouth.

usually i would have thought that this would only happen when they have eaten of drunk something that would cause this or as i say when they have eaten catnip.

If you do take her to the vets i would be interested to know what they have to say about it.

best wishes Kate

Your cat has feline stomatitis, more than likely. Take him/ her to the vet. My cat does the same thing.
