Remember Your Beloved Pet
First cat I ever had that drooled....
Winterblue2 posted:
He is an older cat and very, very affectionate. I'm glad to hear that it isn't necessarily a health problem. He drools only sometimes when we take a nap and he is laying with his head on my arm and purring so hard he's nearly choking. Not really choking, just so loudly that he sounds like he's gargling. He's very content and happy. It's just a little wet and he will lick my arm off so he doesn't put his face back in it I guess. lol. Other than that, he does not drool.

Good to know though. Thanks.
