My advice is to just keep her ears clean. Check them regularly and get some kitty ear wipes. Mites hate clean ears. 

Also if you smell in her ears and they smell kind of sweet then it IS probably mites.

It could also be a yeast infection. My dog gets them in his ears every time the humidity hits crazy again, which was a few weeks ago this year, so we’re washing his ears a lot and may need to go get him some medication. (I just dread the cost of the vet visit)

@PilotsGirl56:  

Sorry, I just saw this. I just kind of look in their ears while I am petting my cats and they are all relaxed and purring and if I see anything in there I clean them. My cats like it cause they love their ears rubbed.

@PilotsGirl56:  When i first adopted my kitties, a few days after they were home I noticed their ears were really goopy and smelly. I took them to the vet and we treated them for mites, however, it didn’t really go away and we treated them for mites again. Still no luck,so they took a swab of their ears, looked under the microscope, and no mites! So this time, we treated them with Pharmaseb Ear Flush, which is an antifungal for yeast infections. Perfect! Worked like a charm.  That was two years ago, and no trouble since. Maybe you could suggest that to your Vet??

Revolution didn’t help my cats, a good cleaning and some generic miticide drops did.  

I thought they were getting mites again, turned out it was just dirt…
