Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello and welcome to Just Answer chat.
I am Dr Z and I will try to help you and Sunshine
Do you notice this more when she is resting or after play?
normally after resting
Have you ever had her ear canals examined?
When I take her to the vet they say her ears are fine.
It sounds like there is nothing to worry about. The color and heat that you feel means that the blood vessels of her ears are dilated and the blood supply is closer to the surface. Since the skin of the ears is thinner and there is less hair there, it would make them seem more red and warm.
It is uncertain why this happens, but the same thing occurs with some humans when they become "flushed" easily.
Thank you. They never expained anything like that. Just said her ears are good. It makes me feel better that she is alright. It still worried me.
I can understand that. Just never thought about it happening to her and in her ears.
Thank you again.
