Spooky has some feline acne going on. It's not TOO bad, it's just some of those black flakes on his chin, a few have scabs on them and such.
What really concerns me are his ears... they are red, and kind of feel warm/hot to the touch, and they have these flakey scabs or something in them. The scabs are a lighter colour. I am fairly positive they aren't mites because they aren't thick and black, and none of the other cats (or even the dog) have it. He scratches a fair amount (no fleas). It's mostly in his right ear, but he has a bit of it in the left, and both ears are red. I also noticed a red rash type thing above his eye a few weeks ago; it was dime sized and now gone. I've also ruled out ringworm; my husband and I don't have it, nor do the other other animals.
I feed him a dehydrated raw kibble (the name escapes me at the moment), but mostly soft food. I feed Friskies - yes, I know it's awful food, but it's all he will eat! I tried only feeding him Wellness or Weruva (sp?), but he refused to eat so much that he started losing weight, so I gave in. He's a nice weight now, and he acts normal; full of energy and super mean as always
He is going to the vet tomorrow, and I'm hoping it's nothing serious (I love my little guy). Any ideas what could be going on?
