One of my cats had a hematoma in his ear last year that was surgically repaired. Consequently, he now looks like he’s half Scottish Curl. He tends to get ear wax in the collapsed ear, presumably because he can’t clean it the way he can his normal ear.
He doesn’t have ear mites or any other kind of irritation – no head shaking or scratching at his ear.
If the wax is there just because he can’t clean it out, is it OK just to leave it there? I can find lots of information on the web about HOW to clean wax out of cats’ ears. I’m just not sure if it is something I need to do. I don’t particularly want to subject him to something he will no doubt not enjoy.
