Squamous cell carcinoma is the most common cutaneous tumour seen in cats. Four cats were presented to Worldwide Veterinary Service (WVS) India, with a history of ulceration, thickening and crusting lesions on the ear pinnae. Histopathological examination of the biopsy samples confirmed squamous cell carcinoma. Hematology, serum biochemistry was performed and thoracic radiographs were taken in all four cases. In addition to squamous cell carcinoma, actinic dermatitis lesions were detected in the contralateral ear of one of the cases. Radical pinnectomy was performed in all the cases. All the cats recovered without any complications.
