Mucus out of Cat's Mouth
I have a male Persian cat four year old. This night there was a discharge of foamy thick white mucus from his mouth, and this continued for a long while. During this time, he kept on taking his tongue in and out, to get rid of the mucus. We've been worried ever since. There is a lot of mucus on the floor. Kindly help me out, and tell me the reasons, and whether or not this is serious in any way.

The most obvious (simplest) illness is a yeast infection. This usually comes from a bladder infection. Is there any discharge at the urethra site? Regardless, cats will develop oral discharge from a strong yeast infection.

There are some more complex possibilities here, right down to a ph imbalance...and I won't begin to guess what's causing it as I don't like to put nasty illnesses into a person's thoughts when it's not likely (but possible).

I would say take him in to get him checked, as at the least he does need a simple antibiotic course to clean him out.
