The purpose of this research is to isolate and identify the fungus on stray cat haircoat and to observe the morphological characteristics of the fungi. Swab of cat’s hair coat was used as specimen collection and isolated to Sabouraud Dextrose (SDA) agar with addition of chloramphenicol. SDA agar used in the research and emphasize more to its morphological characteristics and microscopic identification. Results from this research are Dermatophytes (P=0.8311) and Saprophytes (P=0.1034) were found as they are the causal of fungus diseases especially in cats by accepting the hypothesis.
