Bacterial species of the genus Anaplasma are tick transmitted pathogens that negatively impact on animal productions and generate veterinary and public health concerns. This paper reports the identification, molecular characterization and phylogeny of novel unclassified A. platys-like strains in cats. Interest-ingly, these novel strains are closely related to conspecific strains recently identified in ruminants, andsignificantly differ from A. platys. A. platys-like strains in cats, unlike ruminants strains, show tropismfor platelets. Results have implications in the diagnostic scenario of animal anaplasmosis and providebackground for reconstructing the evolutionary history of species genetically related to A. platys.
