To eliminate ear mites, all it takes is a few drops of Wesson corn oil in your cat's ear. Massage it in, then clean with a cotton ball. Repeat daily for 3 days. The oil soothes the cat's skin, smothers the mites, and accelerates healing.

Also Sweet Almond Oil or pure food grade Almond Oil will work fine. I don't know why olive oil wouldn't work just as well, but always a good idea to check with your vet. I always have the Sweet Almond Oil since I'm a soap-maker, so that's what I use. I often put butter or a dab of olive oil on Kit's front paws for him to lick off. Good for fur balls if
your kitty isn't getting brushed often enough. I can't imagine anything would be more maddening than some bug crawling around in our ears. Poor babies.
Thanks to JodiT and GrannyJenny.
Mineral oil is what we were told to use in our Dogs ears. It works great. I never thought of corn oil but I will tell people now, thanks.
