I think your local pet store might have some meds to get rid of the ear mites. My kittens had horrible mites & it took 3 treatments to get rid of em all. My vet told me I needed to clean out their ears. Do NOT go into their ear canal, you could do serious damage. but on the upper part of the ear, u can use a qtip & swipe out the gunk. this will help them cause u may get rid of some of the mites. I had to clean the ears out every other day. you may not even need to go to the vet & can probly get the ear mite stuff from your pet store, but if youre not sure its mites (will be blackish buildup in ears) or youre not comfortable with treating it (just put a drop in each ear)re.

Im so sorry to hear about your furbaby!!! I hope the Vet can help!

We need to do something about Watson’s newly acquired “somewhat smelly” ear. I just notice little things. LOL. But I fear harming him in trying to clean his ears. Any advice? Instructions?

@canthugallcats: Thanks for your ear cleaning suggestions! =)

Sorry my last post may have been a little hard to follow, I sent it from my phone & now see all the errors I made :P.

@CupCakeMeg: Sometimes smellyness can indicate something wrong with kitty, maybe an infection or something? I’m not sure, I’m not a vet but maybe some cats just kinda stink? Always use a dry qtip because you don’t want to lodge water up their ears. So long as you basically clean out where you can see & if you’re gentle than it should probably be ok. Don’t use too much force & don’t go inside the ear or too close to there cause you don’t want to push anything back & lodge stuff back there.
