Is it Normal for a Cat to Have Black Ear Wax?

Category Cats

My male cat has had black slimy secretions from the right ear, as of the last few weeks. Since both my cats are on the once monthly, behind the back of the neck medicine, I took him to the Vet.


After a few swabs samples were taken, the Vet came in, and told me he doesn't have ear-mites, and he found no bacteria. He gave me antibiotic drops to give him for 5 days.

As I was leaving, I started conversation with a woman with a cat who has had black ear-wax it's whole life (9 years) so far. She had her cat's ears tested for everything. Finally she ended up just cleaning her cat's ears once a month.

My question is: Does healthy black earwax occur in a certain percentage of cats?
