I have a problem with my ears, especially the left one, getting dirty quickly. I don't know how either, because I never leave the house. Anyhow, she has something from the vet that she uses. Just becuse it's from the vet doesn't mean I have to like it. Dad just stands there and laughs at us when it's ear cleaning time. He says it's funnier than watching TV. Once thing about it though, mom doesn't hurt me, she's very gentle.

My vet said when cleaning ears to use a mixture made of equal amounts of:

White Vinegar
Rubbing Alcohol
Water

My human friend does it durring my nap time so that I am still groggy and relaxed then I don't freak out so much.

Good luck, and purrs, Ginger Cat

Just went to the vet and she gave Mommy something called Oti-Clens for me. I have an ear infection too, but the vet told Mommy after I was done with my ear drops, to use this Oti-Clens stuff every couple weeks to keep my ears, inside and out, clean.
