A new species, Staphylococcus felis, was isolated from clinical specimens from cats and is described on the basis of a study of 39 strains. The newly described species is phenotypically similar to strains of Staphylococcus simulans, but has low levels of deoxyribonucleic acid-deoxyribonucleic acid homology (>10%) with S. simulans JCM 2424T and related staphylococci. S. felis strains were coagulase negative and susceptible to novobiocin and bacitracin. A simple scheme for the differentiation of S. felis from related staphylococci is presented. The type strain is strain GD521 (= ATCC 49168 = JCM 7469).
