What you need to know:

  • As much as cats are clean, there are parts of the ears they will not reach.
  • Check the amount of dirt from the cotton balls, and if it is more than you normally see, they could be a sign of an ear infection.
  • Other infection signs could be a discharge, ears turning red, an odour or swelling.

There are several points of consideration when sprucing up a pet, one of them is, grooming. From their fur, ears, nails and eyes. Let’s start with their nails, always keep them short.
