Question
hello my cat has a puffy ear it is  at the  top part of the
ear its feels like there is full of fluid could you please
help me
thanks leonie

Answer
Hi
this sounds like a cyst or even a possible non cancerous growth. My old cat had this and the only thing you can do is to take them to see a vet to have it sorted out. It can be very painful for the cat and if it is a growth may need to be removed before it gets too big.

Don't leave it too long as the sooner it can be treated the better the outcome

best wishes Kate
