I gave Emma a bath today after she layed in some cooking oil. The bath went well and I cleaned her ears out because I noticed some wax build up and tried to dry them out. Since then, she has been shaking her head and flinging black goo all over as well as it is just oozing out of one ear. Could that be ear mites or just water mixing with wax and her ear was full of it? When I cleaned them, I got a large piece of dark brown wax out of the ear that is now bothering her, so did I just open a flood gate or what? When she was at the vet shortly after I found her, they checked her ears and they were clean. All the cats' ears are clean so I don't know how she would have gotten ear mites if that's what it is.
