I use Zymox cleanser and enzymatic solution on Frankie (and the dogs). I use the cleaner one week and the enzymatic the next week. I feel very fortunate that Frankie does not get really dirty ears, most of my friends with Sphynx the ear gunk is a constant struggle. Once we got Frankie's initial ear infection cleared up, we've had no problems...but then I also use the Zymox religiously too.

Yep, that's Piglet, too. Doesn't mind getting a bath, but hates, hates, hates getting her ears cleaned! And don't get me started on how much she hates getting her nails trimmed or cleaned...sigh. :Dizzy:

Wow, Sam. I'm envious! Wish it was that way with Piglet, but I guess one can't have everything perfect about their cat.

Maggie doesnt really mind she just lets me clean her ears & I also clean her nails & between her toes she makes noises @ me but I just tlk to her & she calms down!
Wow Harry makes noises too when I clean his nails. It's kind of pitiful really. Doesn't mind having them trimmed but hates anything that involves cleaning. He runs now when he sees me going for a wet wipe :BigSmile:

We have a few members that do better with showers... I'm afraid to try it for fear of the deep claw marks I'd have down my back! :LOL: You guys are very brave.

Decibel runs from the wetwipes too. Maybe because I used a lot of them when she was a baby.

Earcleaning and nailtrimming is my husbands job.
Decibel tolerates the trimming. But apparently she LOVES getting her ears cleaned.
I have the lovely job of bathing her. She hates it and me for doing it to her.

My cats say: Dirty cat is happy cat!
And dirty ears make them the happiest! :Dizzy:
They're are hiding when I am trying to clean their eyes and ears....

As long as you can SEE where the q tip is cleaning that is fine. Problems develop when you use a q tip and put it in past where you can see....that is bad.
