Default Foaming at the mouth while eating..

Is this normal? She seems to be pooping normally good color good amount. I just didn't really notice her crunching her food as much and she digs in her bowl in search of the baby cat kibbles over the others. I was watching her today and saw that she had foam on her lips in between grabbing kibbles, sort of like annointing foam but she dosent annoint, we've never seen her annoint in the 3 months we've had her now. Anyways just wondering about this.

Is it possible that it was just left over from anointing when you weren't watching? If it happens again though probably not.

RIP Quigley, I miss you my little grumpus.

I wonder if she is having trouble eating the kibble. Either her jaws could be becoming weaker or perhaps she has a tooth issue. I find often when they start to have difficulties, they will have alot of spit in their mouths as they try to crunch the food.
