Q: Why does my cat drool?

March 12, 2008 | By Matt V. | 4 answers | Expired: 2219 days ago

Matt V.

It only happens when he's happy - he'll be purring really loudly, and I'll be petting him or something.

Anyway, all of a sudden I'm covered in cat drool. The good thing is that it's not thick, like with a dog, but honestly it gets everywhere. It's as if he got a drink of water and just kept it in his mouth.

It's gross.

Sounds like your cat is just super happy and content! I have found that some cats drool when they are really relaxed and happy when their owners are petting them. Congratulations, your cat loves you.... :)

I have had cats that do this, usually its when they are marking you. When a cat rubs its face on something or someone its using its scent to mark you as theirs, sometimes they drool as well. It's just a sign that you belong to them but its just as messy as dog drool.

Christine T. nabbed it again! And Matt actually answered his own question by stating that "It only happens when he's [cat] happy". I have one cat, Fuzzy, who really drools when I pet him. I know it is a good sign (he's elated) and I simply tolerate it and/or try not to get too wet.

[Hey, Matt, maybe your next question should be on Multipersonality Cat Owners!]
