My cats ear is swollen like a golf ball. It hurts when touched. What could cause this and what can I do until I get him to the vet?

Dear Ilene,

The sooner you get your cat to the vet, the better.   Ear hematomas are frequently caused by ear infections or ear mites- causing head shaking/scratching.
