Is it a panther? Is it a ninja? No, it's a Bombay cat!

Except for his dramatic black coat, the Bombay looks much like the Burmese, but with a few physical differences such as a larger, longer body and longer legs. The Bombay has a rounded head with medium-size ears set wide apart, eyes that range in color from gold to copper, and a straight, medium-length tail. The short, fine coat feels satiny to the touch and shines like patent leather.

Although the gene for the black coat is dominant, a sable-colored kitten is sometimes born in a Bombay litter. Some associations permit these kittens to be registered as Burmese. The Bombay is a medium-size cat; when lifted, it feels heftier than it looks. The breed develops slowly and males may not reach full size and musculature until they are 2 years old.

The outgoing Bombay is a perfect choice for families with children and cat-friendly dogs. The Bombay loves the attention it receives from children who treat it politely and with respect. The Bombay lives peacefully with cats and dogs who respect it’s authority.
