For the past 4 weeks Ive attempted to clean my cats' ears by instilling this ear solution I bought in Singapore.
It has the following : Neem, Tea tree oil and Chlorhexidine
I honestly dont know how effective this solution is with all the active ingredients combined but it seems to loosen the gunk from the cats ear after I put some of the drops and rubbed their ears gently. It was not that hard to clean the the two kittens' (, Enchong and Boomer), ears. My problem was the other two older cats Dapper and Thumper. Back in Singapore, we didnt have this kind of problem. The cats never had fleas nor ear mites that I remember of. Obviously, the fleas and ear mites came from either Enchong or Boomer or both of them.

After I brought her to the veterinary clinic, the assistant set her on the counter to inspect her ear. The veterinary doctor took a quick look at the cats and let the assistant do the bulk of the work.

Day 2- March 22 Cat bath time
The next day I gave all the cats a bath and also sprayed them with this anti flea solution called Accurate . I also sprayed every corner of the room including the carrier and the area where the cats usually sleep. Enchong is no longer allowed to go out of the room to roam the house since the other cats havent had their baths yet. All 4 cats are all restricted only to my room.

After towelling them dry, I applied the Accurate solution on each cat. It wasnt easy either especially on the older cats. I was again relieved they didnt scratch nor bite me.
It was all worth it though. I noticed that Dapper seem to sleep better after the visit to the vet and after her bath.

Day 3 - March 23 -A birthday
Three years ago my baby girl was born. Coincidentally, it was also the same day my then fiance proposed to me during our trip to my country.
I went to Yishun around May of 2008 to meet the foster parent of my Dapper. It was really love at first sight the moment I saw this cute kitten. I wanted to take her home that day but unfortunately I was in the process of moving to a new flat at Tampines. I could only take her home by June.
