Bombay Cat Behavior/Personality/feeding
The Bombay was created in 1953 by an American Breeder, Nikki Horner
who wanted to develop a cat that possessed the conformation of the
Burmese but with a sleek black coat and copper eyes instead of brown
fur and yellow eyes. She named the breed after Bombay, India, land
of the black leopard. In 1976 the Bombay was recognised for championship
status in The Cat Fanciers' Association.
The Bombay cat is a medium sized cat with a solid muscular body.
They are jet black in colour and the eye colour ranges from golden
to deep copper with copper eyes considered the more superior. Though
the Bombay Kittens look rather ordinary but like scotch whisky they
improve with age.
Bombay cats are extremely agile, affectionate and intelligent. Bombays
are very attached to their owners and want constant attention. They
are silent in nature and are not very vocal.
The Bombay Cats should be jet-black from the roots to the tips.
The kittens may be lighter in color and then darken with age. Black
is the only recognized color. however. there are many other colors.
