Fungal? infection, tip of ear
 
We have here a stray cat, all white, age unknown but fairly mature. On the tip of one ear is a black infection which I am assuming is some kind of fungus. It seems to have eroded nearly a quarter of the ear at this point. I can provide pictures. Andy ideas what this is and hopefully suggestions for easy treatment. Thanks.

Best, wes

I'm wondering if maybe he's frostbitten his ear and the black part is necrotic tissue. Can you take him to a vet to find out?

Frostbite was my first thought too. Any chance of getting him in to have it looked at? :goodvibes:
