Hello everyone, I’m new here!
My kitten has a vet appointment on Tuesday, but I’m just racking my brain here trying to figure out what is going on with my kitten’s ear! He was completely normal a week ago, then I noticed a crusty spot that blended in with his fur, so I figured he was just playing rough with his sister. Today, I noticed the spot is white and bigger. Anyone know what this may be? Of course Google gives me 500 different skin conditions. 😂 I have included pictures to get the visual of it.

No, he is strictly indoors.

Welcome to The Cat Site! You are absolutely right that once you start to google, it looks like just about every pic that you find. Is this flaky like ringworm? You are doing the right thing to get him to the vet.

My first assumption was ringworm. It is flaky and it doesn’t seem to bother him at all.
