Gee, I never really thought about this! My kitties have kind of "cold" ears. There isn't a lot of fat in their ears or big blood vessels and that's what keeps their (and our) skin warm, so their ears are probably cool. Of course, if your kitty is an outdoor one, he will most likely have very cold ears if he lives up North here.

I think they're both ok but if their ears are burning or freezing, then that is probably not good. Most of the time my cats have slightly warm ears, but sometimes they come to me after being in the coldest room in the house (a closed-in atrium) and their ears are cold. I rub them a little and it helps warm them up.

Purrs.

My ears stay warm. My mommy was wondering the same thing.
