Re: red spots in ears


was thinking that need to check Harris too


checked Harris, his ears are fine. it definitely looks more like cuts as they are red not dirty looking.

Re: red spots in ears


Oscar used to get sort of little cuts which were more noticeable because he was white around his head, I always thought they were caused by going though bushes with thorns.....never had an problem with them which I always did for fight wounds (ie became abcess) I did though perform similar first aid and bathe with salt water.

She is an indoor cat Kazz. I bathed them last night as much as she would let me. Not sore to touch either

Re: red spots in ears


A mystery then .... hope they heal quickly.

Quick thought - has she been scratching herself, something's irritating her?
