Those with multiple cats might frequently catch their cats cleaning each others ears...which brings up the question exactly why do cats love earwax? It comes down to the fact cats love smelly things, specifically smelly things coming from animals’ bodies (including humans). Earwax is made up of dead skin cells and bodily secretions like fatty acids and cholesterol. Cats are attracted to eating these animal proteins, so the smell draws them in, and they just keep going back for more.

How many of you have cats that like ear wax? I know ours do. They start off cleaning and then it usually ends like this lol.

Happy Friday Lairians!
