Veterinary questions? Ask a Vet for Answers ASAP
Hi, Welcome to Just Answer. I'm Chris, a small animal Vet based in the UK. I am reviewing your question and will get back to you as soon as possible
Sorry to hear of this with Ocean and thanks for the photos. Irritation with the ear liek this could suggest an ear infection, either bacterial, fungal or (more commonly in cats) parasitic due to ear mites.
I would suggest getting Ocean checked by your vet who can perform otoscopic examination of the ear, take samples if necessary and prescribe an appropriate course of treatment (possibly ear drops).
I hope that answers your question? Please let me know if you need any further help or advice.
