A cat's pinnae are the ear flaps, the part of the ear that you can readily see. They are vulnerable to bites and scratches. Injuries caused by fights often become infected with bacteria, which results in abscesses. Veterinary attention is required with a course of antibiotics. See also fights causing abscesses.
