Keeping the Ear Clean

It seems like Chris has a perpetual ear infection due to his overabundance of ear pollyps. It was in both ears but now it is only in his left ear. I got a different medicine from the vet and have been putting it in his ear pretty regularly but we have been inconsistent when it comes to cleaning his ears. Perhaps because putting in the medicine is easy but cleaning his ears involves a lot of struggling and frustration. Fortunately, Floki has taken over the ear cleaning duties and he does a great job with far less struggling from Chris.

Floki even knows it is his left ear that needs cleaning.

    That’s pretty amazing. Cats are so intuitive. It won’t hurt Floki if he happens to ingest some of the medicine? XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, angel Mauricio, Misty May, angel Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy, Sawyer & Kizmet

      He tried to clean it one day shortly after I put the medicine in his ears and I had to stop him, multiple times. Other than that it has always been at times far from when I applied the medicine, since I usually apply it at night shortly before bedtime.

    Purrrhaps Floki can start his own ear cleaning business! Actually it’s great that he is willing to do that – Chris tolerates it better than having a mere human do it for him. LOL
