Cat Scratching Ears

Cat Scratching Ears

Ear Mites. Ear mites are tiny parasites that like to live in and around cat ears.. Ear mites make cats shake their heads and scratch themselves around the ears, head and neck. To determine if your cat has ear mites, check your cat's ears for material that looks like coffee grounds.
An occasional scratch is normal. However, excessive scratching or pawing at the ears or head can be an indication of ear infection, foreign bodies, ear mites, injury, excess ear wax, or other skin problems.
One day you're scratching your cat's ears when you notice something unusual inside — a dark brown, crumbly substance that looks sort of like coffee grounds.
