what is this wet stuff?

When my cat kneads my tummy, as they do, she not only goes into a kind of purring trance, but something wet and cold drops from the front of her face, possibly her nose. I'd assume it was 'snot' but it's freezing cold. Does anyone have any light to shed on this? I'm not worried, she's always done it, but I'm curious.

Here's a picture of her just to coax you all along - 13 year old rescue cat

She is drooling - she is in her happy place so she is forgetting to swallow her saliva

She is giving you the ultimate love experience 😂

My cat dribbles when he kneads me sometimes. Usually when he's at his most happy and relaxed. I often get a cold drop or two on my arm

Drool or snot. I get treated to both hmm

Mostly drool I think - Boycat does this when he's having tummy rubs, while purring & sort of semi-snoring at the same time. Totally blissed out mode.

Drool - you’re like padded catnip to her grin

My cat always drools on me when she's having a 'kneading session'.

Next door's old cat did that. He was so drooly that if he took a fancy to you and jumped on your lap, neighbour would place a towel over your legs to keep you dry. He adored me and I often had the towel in place!

The first time my cat did this I got up and noticed a big wet patch on my jumper, couldn’t work out what it was either 😂

He still does it now.

Drool? Dear lord I thought snot was bad enough... but I’m happy that she is happy. Bring in winter jumpers tho, as being kneaded through a t-shirt is quite painful.

I dunno, think I prefer saliva to snot!

Yep, saliva! My cat does it and you end up looking like you’ve spilt something down yourself grin
