Three adult male domestic short hair cats (range of b.wt. 2-2.5kg) were used. In all cases, euthanasia was formed. The left and right molar salivary glands were quickly excised and dissected free from adhering tissue. Sections of the glands were stained with haematoxylin and eosin. For histochemical studies, Alcian blue and Periodic acid shiff staining were used. All of sections were studied at light microscope level. In cat, molar gland was rectangle shape and was located obliquely in the submucosal fossa of the inferior lip, near the oral commissure. The mean length of the gland was 8 -10 mm and the mean width of it, was 3 - 5 mm. In histological findings molar gland surrounded with a connective tissue capsule. Septa of connective tissue from the capsule extend into the gland and divide the organ into lobes and then lobules. Secretory cells made up seromucous units and mucous cells were predominant. In results, we concluded the domestic short hair cat such as other cat breeds has a distinctive molar salivary gland. Also, the gland has a separate capsule with lobe and lobule and classified in major salivary glands. Histochemical results showed that neutral and acidic glycoproteins in secretory cells.
