the important regions one has to know if they are interested to
understand the basic cat anatomy. The mouth region
is often called as oral region and oral mucosa covers the lips of
the oral region and buccal cavity. Ventral buccal salivary
gland and zygomatic gland
are associated with salivary secretion. Hence, the various structures
found in both the mouth and digestive system are finally associated
with the digestive functions.
Anatomical structures of mouth and digestive system

The tongue in mouth of cat bears various types of papillae like
