We live in the country and have been adopted by a male cat. He is tame enough to eat the food we put out for him and we can get close enough to pet him but forget about picking him up! He has something wrong around his ears or the skin behind his ears. At first I thought he was getting banged up in fights but I think he must be scratching the areas behind his ears until they are raw. I'm wondering if he could have ear mites? I was able to spray the raw areas with some anti-pain, anti-bacterial spray after which he shot away from me like a cannon ball. Anyone have any ideas? Maybe some kind of spray I could use on him? I feel so bad for him but it's hard to doctor him when he is so wild.
