Aren't my furs nice and shiny? The VET people even said so last week. I keep forgetting to tell everyone that the VET lady I saw about my ear problem had actually just been to a conference on feline ears. The guy who was teaching it actually told all of the VETs who were there that there is no point in cleaning out waxy ears. If a cat has waxy ears (like me) you should just let us be and not worry about cleaning them-its actually healthier that way. The Woman was sure happy to hear she didn't have to clean my ears and I am too. I hate those pointy cotton sticks. So those of you with waxy ears tell your humans to leave your ears alone.
