I don't have a thermometer (rectum or oral), so i was just wondering if feeling a cats ears are equivilent to feeling a human's forehead for a fever? My kittens ears are often very warm, she's gotten all her vaccines, she's not spayed (she goes feb 6th). So do warm/hot ears=fever? What about cold ears? My older cat sometimes has cold ears, sometimes one warm, one cold. Eh. Just curious.

The only way to tell is to take the temp. Either rectally and now they have those cool ear thermometers for pets. I just bought one the other day, it was on sale at WalMart!

I forgot, if the third eyelid is pronounced, that generally means your cat has a fever, or is ill. Also if you pinch the skin and it stays tented up, the cat is dehydrated. Dehydrated cats are often feverish.
