Licking Lips?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
One of my new foster cats (adult 9 yrs. old) keeps licking his lips constantly. I read somewhere this might be a sign of anxiety?? He has only been with me since Saturday but I figured I would ask you guys if you know why he would be doing this. He is eating and drinking. Could this be a serious problem possibly? He was at the vets office last Friday getting a check-up, shots, fecals, the works before being turned in to me. Opinions??

Licking lips can be a sign of nausea as well. I would give him some plain yogurt with active cultures and see if that calms it down a bit. I would also look in the corners for some (sorry) but some old vomit. He is likely vomiting. You will probably only see stains because cats eat what they toss (usually)

A sick tummy was my thought as well, my cats usually lick their lips before they throw up.

I do agree with the above, but it may be harmlessly also. Our younger boy when still fertile young man, did often licked lips - usually in context of soundless meowing(?!). He is neutered now since a year. Never doing this any longer. And he meows much much lesser than he did as fertile.
