ear mite question in cats
a friend of mine volunteers at the local no kill shelter. tonight, i went to help her for the first time. i saw something i had never seen before. a good few of the cats had a malformation of the outer ear, crinkly, sort of shrunken, etc. hard to explain. usually just one ear, not both. i thought that perhaps they were related and it was a recessive gene much like the scottish fold.
the weird part is she was told it was from ear mites. i had never heard of this, let alone seen it. can anyone explain this? chicka? sarah? anyone else i can't think of that has seen it? very odd.
