Hi. My name is***** Thank you for your question about Ivy. That is good that she ate some of her cat food about 15 minutes ago and that the drooling has stopped. Has she had any vomiting? Is she keeping her mouth open or seeming uncomfortable with it?
That is good that there has been no vomiting. Also good that here is no visible ulcerations on her mouth. When a cat starts to drool, it can be due to licking something that is an oral irritant. If this is the case, it may have the worst past her. The fact that the drooling has stopped and that she's eating have this being a hopeful situation. Sometimes they can drool if a tooth issue is present. Sometimes they can drool if there is a growth or sore in the mouth. Nausea can also cause some to drool. At this point, with the drooling stopped and the fact that she ate would have me hopeful that watching her over the next few days for vomiting, loss of appetite, or oral discomfort is a viable option.
