Aloha! You're speaking with Dr. Michael Salkin
Can you please tell me from which orifice you're seeing this white milk-like discharge drop and if your cat is spayed? I'll await your reply.

Hi Dr. Salkin.I am told that The cat hasnt been spayed. She isnt mine per say, but is in our house all the time. Cant be sure but i think its from her genatils. Thank you

Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 3 years ago.
Thank you. Vaginal discharge is so uncommon in cats that I have to think that it's coming from her uterus which along with her over-friendly and noisy behavior indicates a uterus under the influence of progesterone. This is going to occur during pregnancy, false pregnancy, and most worrisome, with the endometrial hyperplasia complex (pyometra) in which the infected uterus fills with pus. You're likely to be seeing pus rolling out of her uterus through an open cervix (an open pyometra).

Spaying her should be curative and I encourage that that be performed at your earliest convenience. Please continue our conversation if you wish.
