Kitten with purple ear?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi all, my 12 week old kitten has one black ear and one orange ear. The orange ear has developed a purpley hue to the tip, and I can't tell of it's on the black ear too. She has been treated for both fleas and ear mites recently and doesn't seem to be scratching the ear but it still concerns me. I dot want to pay the vet $50 to tell me it's nothing... Ideas?

Honestly its hard to tell.  You might just do some watchful waiting and see if it changes.  And in the meantime maybe some others can chime in.  If there is itching or hair loss that would be significant.  You might also want to brush back her fur on the rest of her body so as to get a clear view of her skin and see if its showing up anywhere else.
