Do cats have sensitive ears?

My cat seems to have sensitive ears and I was wondering if all cats did.

Yes,cats can hear higher frequencies 80% better than a human being, and 60%to 65% better than dogs. with their cone shaped ears that can rotate like mini satallite dishes they can hone in on sound and their ability to hear high frequencies they can hear a mouse squeak a lot faster than our inferior ears can pickup.

I'm not sure if you mean that the ears are sensitive to sounds, or sensitive to touch, or some thing else. But in all cases, from my experience, the answer would be yes. Sometimes they are extra itchy/sensitive from ear mites or excess wax. (Cat helped type this! )

Cats have sensitive ears as its hearing range is more than that of humans. It can hear sounds which humans cannot.

Cats have very acute hearing and are often bothered by loud or high pitched noise. To see if your cat is bothered by what is going on around him/her just watch their reacting. If the cat becomes agitated or tense you may want to tune it down a bit.
