    My cat was in a fight with another cat two nights ago (although i'm not sure there was any contact... just a lot of yowling)

    Anyway, tonight, I discovered this tiny thing on the tip of my cat's ear. It was very hard to get a good picture, but I managed to get one.

    It's very hard. I thought it was some kind of blood clot but i've never seen one like it. I've tried pulling on it w/tweezers but it seems firmly stuck. I've put a little hydrogen peroxide on it, but that's it.

    hi, fantastic pic...wish i could do stuff like that!
    looks like a scratch which may have displaced a bit of skin and this will die off scab and come off when heeled.
    good idea re hydrogen peroxide...that will have sorted out any bacteria;)
