Haemophilus felis is a Gram-negative species of bacterium belonging to the Pasteurellaceae family. A strain of this species was originally isolated from the respiratory tract of a cat with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, though it was also found in healthy cats.[1] The species may be closely related (on the basis of rpoB sequence) to Pasteurella multocida.[2]
