One of my male cats drools on everyone. He loves to climb on you and have you hold him but he drools so bad, he gets your shirt wet. He also starts kneading you with his claws out and it hurts. Kinda gross, but I love him anyway.
I think the reason some cats drool when they are pet is because when they were kittens they kneaded their paws on their mothers to stimulate milk flow. The anticipation and smell of the milk caused the kitten to salivate and drool. That causes some cats to reproduce this behavior involuntarily in adulthood and some how they associate the pleasure of being pet with nursing as a kitten and they drool. I have one cat who drools when he is pet. The other two cats do not drool they just knead with their paws. Sometimes they get a little carried away and really dig in with their claws. That is how I know it is time to give their nails a trim.
I've had to hand raise a lot of kittens and it seems like those ones as adults were more of a drooler. They also like to suck on a special stuffed animal that they've had since they were young, actually down to the stuffing. I've also found in the middle of the night that they've been sucking in my hair and kneeding too. So I dont' really know for sure, but it may have something to do with missing the momma, even as an adult. Cute isn't it!
i think just about every cat that i have had has drooled. there is ushualy a big puddle over my t-shirt or trousers.
i hate it when he does it espeshualy when i am trying to go to sleeep and he wants a cuddle and desided to sleep really near my head, and all of a sudden a huge horrible wet thing comes down and hits me on the head lol
