Thanks for all of your help! I know you are not a vet, but your advice is the best I have right now, kwim? I truly appreciate it. I would have been counting down the second hand on the clock for the 12 hour time. hehe. I am going to do the meds right now for her. I am very glad that you told me about that soft e collar, that's such a great invention! I wish she had it now.I obviously can't say it would be not bad, but I would give it to her now. And I would not fret if you give it to her again in the morning. I sometimes do not give meds in a strict 12 hours regimen neither...
When you put anything in the ears, your kitty will very likely to shake it out (And by the way, the excessive shaking was part of the trauma of causing ear hematomas). So you won't have to take anything out. Just apply and gently massage the base of the ears. Your kitty might like the massage. When you actually use EpiOtic and clean the ears, you could use a cotton ball and gently wipe away the debris and gunk on the ear flap part. But don't stick anything down the ear canal.
You are going to be good at this once you get used to it!!! Don't worry~~~!
