  1. FLEAS or somthing inside the ears.
    use a Qtip and wet it and clean inside the ears… if it is very dirty … it most likely is ear mites.
    If the dirt on the outside of the cat turns red when wet… it is flea poo

  2. It could be a number of things from an infection to food allergies.

    Only a vet can diagnose the problem and determine the correct treatment.

    The only thing to do is to take him to a vet – there is no alternative.

    Even a vet reading your question could not diagnose the problem without examining the cat.

    The cat needs to be examined by a vet.

    Anything we might suggest here would simply be guesses.

  3. Sounds like he might have ear mites…have a look into his ears to check for any dark waxy build up, you can find pictures to compare at this link: http://www.lbah.com/feline/ear_mites.htm

    do take him to see a vet as soon as possible…good luck!

  4. Possibly fleas or ear mites.

    A vet would be able to help more than us.
