My kitten has foam around her mouth

by Ophelia

She was outside on a leash and I was letting her wander.She likes to chew on plants. When I looked up she had white foam around her mouth.She was acting fine today.

This has happened once before about a month ago, except she was inside..

Answer by KAte
sometimes cats will foam at the mouth if they eat certain plants such as catnip. See the video on this page and you will see an example of this

As long as she is Ok then there should be nothing to worry about. the only time you would need to get her to the vets is if she ate something poisonous.

Also check her teeth to make sure she does not have any bad ones which could also be causing her some problems.

best wishes Kate
