Cat ear cleaning Scottish Kilt / Munchkin Fold

A Side effect of  the Scottish Kilt cat is the lack of wide open ears like above.  The small folded ears do have advantages and disadvantages.  First the advantages they are small and pretty protected so they do not get dirty often.  The disadvantage is when they do get dirty they are hard to clean.
 
I use vitamin E oil, I take a q-tip and dip it in the oil and swab the cats ear.  Twenty min later everything in the ear is like soft butter and easily wipes out with a q-tip.  NEVER hold on to the ear to clean.  Gently insert the q-tip no farther than you can see and take your time.
