|We adopted Tobi a few months ago, and at first she was rather shy. She has allergies and had taken nearly all of the fur off her hind end. It seemed almost as if she was embarrassed by her bald behind. After a gentle bath and a switch in diets, Tobi's a lot less itchy now and has become extremely affectionate.
Here's the thing, though- when someone's petting her, and she's all excited and purring, she drools. I've only ever known one other cat that does this, but he's old and has overgrown fangs, which, his owner says, is the reason for his drooling. Tobi is young, only two or three years old, and all of her teeth fit in her mouth. There doesn't seem to be anything medically wrong with her, but I'm rather curious. Does anyone know why she would drool when she's excited? Does anyone else have a cat that does this?
