It might be ear mites, an ear infection or just dirty ears causing fuzzy to scratch her ears and cause the sores. Is she tilting or shaking her head at all? Do they smell inside or look dirty? The vet is the right place to figure all that out. They can safely clean Fuzzy's ears and they will know if it looks infected or if it looks like there might be something wrong with her ears causing her to scratch.

The vet is the best place to get the answer. The other poster also gave good advice. You could keep it clean using hydrogen peroxide this will help to keep it clean and from getting it infected. You may being scratching it and making it worse. I hope you feel better soon.

Personally, I would go to the vet. If money is a problem, check your local SPCA or shelter for cheap vet options. This sounds like something that can be treated cheaply anyway. By the way, you are a GORGEOUS cat, and appear to be at least part Maine Coon (ear shape and placement, eye shape, muzzle, and noseline). You may be a brown patched tabby (aka torbie; these are color classifications and not breed names) because of the tabby markings, which usually don't occur in torties, at least not in the non-red areas. But, what's in a name? You're just beautiful.
