Q. Looks like my kitties are having pain in Their ears they are normally outdoor cats but when it freezing out we bring them inside.

Answered By

A. Your cats could have an ear infection. I recommend getting them in to see your vet for an exam so they can get treatment as soon as possible. If they have an infection and it is untreated, this could lead to a deeper infection as well as hematomas in the ear flap from shaking their heads from the discomfort of the ear infection.
