How Clean Your Cat’s Ears

Since dirt and debris seem to collect primarily in cats’ ears, it’s important to check them, at the very least, every two weeks. To clean, use a piece of cotton or cotton swab moistened with hydrogen peroxide. Just be careful not to go deeper into the ear than you can see, and never apply the peroxide directly against the skin. Should you find deeply lodged earwax, or redness and black spots indicative of mites, head to your veterinarian for further care.
