What is the cause of a puffy eat on cats?

My cat has a puffy ear.

An abcess may be a possible answer, if this is the case there will be a wound somewhere on the ear. Another possible answer is a hematoma. Both conditions will need to be treated by a vet.

Often your cat can suffer a small injury from fighting or playing. The ear is in two parts, the inside will swell and fill up with fluid due to infection.

It may be an aural hematoma, a collection of blood or fluid between the skin layers of the ear flap, resulting from trauma or an ear infection.

If your cats ear is puffy it could have some kind of an infection. Has the cat been in a fight recently or had a sore on that ear? If so, it is very likely that your cat has an abscess on that ear. You need to have it examined by a vet!

It sounds like you are describing a hematoma on both ears. Cats and dogs get these usually from a trauma of some sort-even self inflicted scratching traumas. Most likely case is that he has been fighting especially if he has red marks across his belly.
