Pasteurella multocida. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of Pasteurella multocida isolated from a cat's tongue. Pasteurella multocida is a Gram-negative, nonmotile, penicillin-sensitive coccobacillus belonging to the Pasteurellaceae family. In humans, pasteurella multocida is the most common cause of infection from wound infections after cat bites. Many mammals (including domestic cats and dogs) and birds harbor it as part of their normal respiratory microbiota. Magnification: x 10000 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
