I just to say thanks to all who responded.
The weird thing is that she stopped drooling.....
About 15 minutes after I posted my original question, my kitten was walking around and I heard her making noise...and her stomach was moving. She was heaving. I went to see what was wrong and she ran under my dining room table. She was still heaving....
By the time I got under the table, she was chewing something - I went in her mouth and there was nothing there (maybe she swallowed what she threw up?) Thing is....there wasn't a wet spot on the rug under my table, so I don't actually think she threw up - maybe something was stuck in her throat??????
Anyway, after this episode, she is not drooling....and she is not just laying around - she is playing, drinking her water, eating her food, and I even gave her some treats
I will keep a close eye on her for the next hour or so and see what happens......the minute she starts to drool again, I will call the vet.
Question: Do you think the drooling could have been from something that was stuck in her throat??
Again, thanks in advance
