My kitten sometimes has blackish-brown wax in her ears that I clean out with a ball of cotton. I've read cats get coffee-grounds-looking ear wax when they have ear mites but she doesn't show any sign of discomfort? No excessive ear scratching, no redness, nothing. Are her ears just naturally a bit waxy? I'd love to take her to a vet of course, but thought I'd just ask.
What is earwax in healthy cats supposed to look like?
