Black holes for ears

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hey everyone! I just wondered over here from the behavior section. Maybe someone can tell me something... I have had cats me hole life but never have seen this. I have 2 (As my name states) kittens. They are 4months old and seem realtivly healthy. But there ears are VERY dirty. Not even dirty. Almost as if they have some weird ear infection. I clean there ears out all the time. I used damp Q-Tips so it doesn't hurt.And I NEVER go deep into the ear. What ever this is it itches them really bad. Has anyone had something similar to this with there babies? Let me know. Thanx!

Hi Mamaof2,
Your cats might have ear mites, which left untreated may lead to secondary ear infections & even to deafness..The symptoms are brown, grinded coffee like dirts coming out of their ears & scratching around ears & head and sometimes tilting of the head..You should take them to a vet asap. The vet takes a swab of this dirt from the ears & looks under a microspcope to see if there are any ear mites..If there are, the vet will give you an ear drop...

Hope this helps

I agree with everyone else sounds like earmites. Please take you kittens to the vet if you can.
