Kitty, my male cat american shorthair, has wounds
Hello, That kind of lession is usually self inflicted when the cat scratches his/her ear with the rear paws. It's not that kitty wants to hurt herself but that she has pain or itch secondary to a problem in her auditory canal. The most comon cause is the presecnce of acari (they are very itchy). The fact that you haven't seen her scratching herself doesn't mean that she doesn't do it. Cats are kind of proud animals and they might not want to scratch in fornt of their "human". You have to go to a vet so that they perform an exam on her, and apply a treatment. Best regards.

Max, my male cat unknown, has wounds
Hello! When a wound is open and/or bleeding you should go to a veterinarian as soon as possible as it should be cleaned and put stitches. What you can do while waiting to get to the clinic is to put pressure on the wound with possible sterilized material to cut off possible bleeding. Also, you can clean it with hydrogen peroxide and/or iodine, and prevent your cat from licking the area. All the best for you and Max.

Holly, my female cat common european, has fleas
Hello! Cats are carnivorous, meaning their fundamental diet should be meat. For external parasites, you can use apple vinegar bath (two parts of water for one of vinegar) for your cat. After the bath, brush the hair with a special comb for removing the dead fleas and other parasites. Very important note: if your cat has wounds or scratches on his skin, don't use vinegar solution. Also, keep in mind that you have to clean and disinfect the floor too, which you can also do with apple cider vinegar and hot water. Before washing the floor, clean it with the vacuum cleaner. If you have carpets, wash it in the washing machine at over 60°C (140°F) for at least 1 hour. Once dry, spray with Frontline spray. Once completely eliminated, remember to deworm your cat internally and externally every 3 months as a prevention. All the best.
