    One more thing, i bathed her around 7 hrs ago (on evening) i dried her with hairdryer, but not for long since she has short hair so at that time i thought that her body dried already
    Here’s my point

    1. I totally dont remember her ears skin before i bathe whether it was already becomes black or right after i bathe her
    2. I thought that she has block blood circulation, so i did whatever i can to make her ears turn to pink (it doesnt work)
    3. After googling i found it could be cancer????

    Are you sure you didn't burn her ears with the hairdryer? If I were you, I wouldn't mess any more with her ears, and find an emergency vet to take her to. Sometimes, when a regular vet's office is closed, they will include a recording telling you where you can take your cat when their office is closed.

    Please find a vet that is open and take her in!!

    It's hard to tell from the pictures but maybe the black area is developing normal skin pigmentation? If your cat is otherwise eating and drinking normally and using the litter box and generally doing well, it's ok to call the vet when the office reopens.

    @LTS3 - the following statements made by @Sichanayu are the reasons I suggested the kitten should be seen by a vet ASAP. If those statements had not been made, I would have suggested the same as you did.

    Yes, agree.

    @Sichanayu - how many weeks old is this kitten? Is it a pointed cat, like a Siamese?

    when you bath your cats dry them with a towel, gently. It's okay if they are little damp when you finish.

    Don't use it on the cats again. They make special hair dryers for cats. The ones you see people use on them on TV are not hair dryers for people. Your cat has already forgiven you.

    From the pictures it looks as though your cat's ear fur was cream at the base and black further up. It also looks as though she has lost the fur on her ears between the first set of pictures and the second set. Normally the skin under the different colors of fur is different colors.

    I would call the vet in the morning.

    It's better to ask too many questions than not. The vet should appreciate that you care about your cat and are working to learn all you can to help her.

    Thats why i worried i thought that black things appeared on her ears bcause it didnt dry well so her ears skin too moist, as far as I remember i didnt use much hairdryer at least only 7~10 min so im sure i didnt burn her ears.
    Thanks for your kindness to answer :”(
    I contacted all the vets in my city (totally 5 vets) but none of them in the city bcause their having vacations as I mentioned before (its national holiday in my country) :(((((

    She is actually having a heavy mold, after discusses with vets, they recommended me to shave her hairs

    Thats what makes me so confused tbh i have a memory problem. So i recently forgot things. I didnt remember whether its her original skin or has changed, so i checked the pictures of her which i have in my album, and after checked her pictures im 80% believe that her skin has changed...


    About eating, drinking, using litter box, playing, she is just doing well as usual


    Ohhhhh... she is a ragdoll cat anyway



    Thanks for your kindness to answer

    What is the "mold" that is on your cat? A fungal skin infection?
