Bald Ears

So Kronos does not have hair on the back of his ears. Well he does, but it is very sparse, so they are pretty much bald. Any ideas why?

He came to me this way and I thought it would grow back in. It has been 3 months now that we have had him home and still no signs of it growing back.

Hard to say without seeing them....can you post pics of the backs of his ears?

I know it is sortof hard to tell in these pictures, but I will try to get a close up and more detailed one when I am home. My vet has told me not to worry about it because his ears are fine and healthy. Someone else has suggestion perhaps his mother over groomed him as a kitten. Others have said genetics.

I'm going to guess genetics as well? His ears do look healthy....maybe like humans who have thin hair....I wouldn't worry about it if your vet thinks they are fine the way they are!

Is it possible that Solo or Coco are over grooming them when you are not around? Just a though!
No because until yesterday, Kronos is confined in his own bedroom when not under supervision. When he is out, I do not see over grooming of his ears, although both Solo and Coco have licked them before.

Well it was just a thought. Not sure I'd worry if all else is healthy. I think the only thing I'd worry about would be if he were to be out in the sun for very long. His ears might get sunburned.
