He has a hematoma...

He has a hematoma on his left ear at the base that is blocking his ability to hear.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the cat's name and age?

Shadow - 15 years old

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the cat's name?

Shadow

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Shadow?

He had a hematoma on his right ear and the vet here did nothing which caused his ear to crimp up and get hard - he has almost black ear wax in both ears
