Q. My cat got outside one day. When he came back in his ear was swollen. HIs ear then shriveled up and his other ear is swollen. What could have happened

A. If the ear is thick and it looks like a lump on the pinna then it could be ear hematoma ( you can look online for pictures of ear hematoma in dogs). Sometimes ear will swell as a result of allergic reaction -they are usually red and hot.
