What does it mean when your cat drools

Your cat may become dehydrated, so it's important to make sure it's drinking enough fluids. Try to get your cat to drink a lot of water.

You should also monitor your cat's urine and stool output. Make sure they're not too loose, which could indicate that your cat is dehydrated. Also, it's important to make sure your cat's bowel movements are normal.
