Hi there, I'm Dr. Sara. I'm a licensed veterinarian who works exclusively with cats and dogs. I'm sorry that Samson is acting funny tonight - I'm here to help :)

Do you think there's any possibility that he tasted or otherwise ingested anything out of the ordinary? Frequently cats who are salivating excessively are doing so in response to a very bitter or otherwise offensive taste. Some cats will even hypersalivate when they smell something that is awful to them.

Is he acting well otherwise? Is he having any trouble breathing?

I'll await your reply :)
