I'm sorry to hear this and understand your concern for Pamuk.
Does she have bad breath?
Is she off her food?
Would a photo of her teeth / gums be possible?
Can you see any ulcers on her tongue or foreign bodies in her mouth?
There is some calculus and gingivitis and Pamuk would benefit from a dental cleaning.
However, I'm not convinced this is the issue today.
Any chance Pamuk has eaten something she shouldn't have such as a house plant, cleaning product or human medicine?
It is possible that tooth brushing may help here, but there is quite significant calculus so a dental cleaning may be needed regardless.
Also, not every cat accepts tooth brushing (it would be great if she does).
So, ot confirm, she is not lethargic and she is eating and acting as normal?
Ok, thank you.
As she has no other signs and will eat, it should be ok to monitor her today.
Continue to offer warm and tempting bland food like chicken and rice and watch for any new signs such as vomiting, fast breathing, bloating or diarrhoea.
If no better in the morning, a vet check is sensible.
She may well have some tooth ache on the side with more gingivitis.
Yes. Drooling is commonly associated with sort teeth.
However, it can also be a sign of nausea or another issue with the mouth (such as an ulcer or foreign body) so we need to keep this in mind.
Drooling can be a sign of toxicity but we would usually see additional signs (like weakness, wobbly walking, pale gums dilated pupils, vomiting etc.)
However, with our pets, we always have to be aware of the possibility of a toxin.
As we're not exactly sure why she is drooling, I think anything new or different needs to be taken into account.
Yes though, both vomiting and loss of appetite would be the most common signs to occur alongside drooling.
