Cats spend 1/3 of their lives grooming. The scratching is more unusual. Is she a long-hair or short hair? If long hair, she might be trying to remove tangles. That means she needs to be professionally groomed.

Check her skin. Do you see dandruff? If so, you need to change her diet to something like Hill's Ideal that has a higher oil content. If not, does she scratch constantly? If so she has fleas. If just the ears, but pretty much constantly, she has ear mites.
Since she grooms so often, be sure to get a hairball remedy and have it on hand. If she gets sick, vomits, won't eat or has dry poops try the hairball remedy first. Good luck with your cat.
