  • a For two cats from California, 16S rRNA type was determined but DNA fingerprint was not; for one cat from California and two cats from Florida, DNA fingerprint was determined but 16S rRNA type was not. For the other cats represented in the table, both DNA fingerprint type and 16S rRNA type were determined.
