  • I'm not sure what it could be, but if you're concerned you could always look it up online or just call a veterinarian office and describe it to them over the phone. They might be able to tell you if it needs to be looked at or not. Good luck.

  • Black clumpy stuff in her ears is most likely earmites. Keep treating with the over the counter stuff as the directions tell you to. Give it time to work. If her ears are very red, she may have an ear infection because of the mites. If you think that's a possibility, bring her to the vets for an antibiotic. GL!

  • See how the kitten does over the next 24 hours. Is the kitten eating? Using the catbox? Are their worms in their poop? Is it throwing up?Does it have liquid diarrea? If it is, get it to a Dr. It could have Parvo. Keep it away from any other animal until you know for sure. If its eating & poop normal, wait. Your mom might be avaliable by tomorrow. hope this helps.

  • Look it up online and take her to a vet. It could be nothing, it could be something. You never know.
