Wilson & Reeder, eds. (2005): Status: CITES - specifically excluded from protection
Wilson & Reeder, eds. (2005): Comments: Also see comments under Felis and Felis silvestris. Synonyms allocated according to Pocock (1951) and should be considered provisional. There has been almost universal use of F. catus for the domestic cat and silvestris for wild cats.

David Nicolson - ITIS Data Development Coordinator: Wilson & Reeder (eds., 2005) note that some consider catus and sylvestris (and lybica/libyca) to be conspecific. If this view were followed, "there would be a problem with the continued use of the name Felis sylvestris"
