M. felis and M. gatae recovered from domestic cats, M. arginini from a cheetah, an unidentified glucose-fermenting mycoplasma from a lion, and M. pumonis from a rat were inoculated into specific-pathogen-free kittens by the oral, ocular and nasal routes. During the 21-day experimental period a persistent infection was established in a proportion of the kittens given M. felis, M. gatae, and M. arginini. The mycoplasma isolated from the lion created a transitory infection in one kitten, but M. pulmonis could not be recovered even 24 hours after inoculation. None of the organisms showed any pathological effect. Implications in relation to the host-specificity and pathogenicity of the feline mycoplasmas are discussed.
