Latest news about the Bombay

Send in FIFe showresults

 I ask every Bombay exhibitior in FIFe to continuously submit judgements and diplomas so nothing can be missed and left behind.
As I am the BC secretary, I keep all documentation about this.

I also ask for documentation about litters, pedigrees and tests.

Bombays can now be shown in FIFe

From 1:st of January Bombays can compete in FIFe shows

A minimum of 40 cats must be shown at minimum 3 different catshows by 3 different judges (contrasign is possible). Atleast 15 of these cats must have reached IC/IP and the title must be registrated.

15 litters must have been registrated from 1/1 until we go for full recognition. One year must have passed before we can go for full recognition. We have 5 years to arrive at full recognition.

Fantastic News!

Update on our proposals

This is fantastic news!

So why not join us on the “Dark side”!

Proposals sent to all comissions

Registration proposal on FIFe GA 29 Septemer – 1 october

FIFe BRC submits a proposal on registration rules

Against the will of he Bombay BC, FIFe BRC submits a proposal on registration rules for Bombay.

This will make it impossible for us to cross out with Burmese as they must be free tested from dilution and chocolate predisposition. The other cat organizations where Bombay is recognized have absolutely no restrictions regarding recessive colour genes and we also believe that it will be very difficult to find suitable Burmese (without chocolate/dilution) to contribute to our breeding program.

These two sentences MUST be deleted:

When preliminary recognition is achieved the BUR n used for outcross must be tested free of the chocolate and dilution gene. This allowance will be deleted when full recognition is obtained.

Over the last 18 months the BOM non BC has continued to supply information regarding the development of the breed within FIFe. The BOM non BC has received no official response from FIFe regarding these submissions. The BOM non BC is surprised to read FIFe BRC proposal No 9 regarding our breed when Article 10 of the FIFe Breeding and Registration Rules states that breed specific registration rules should accompany the application for preliminary recognition.

Turned down by FIFe BRC

Are we going to continue?

I am sad to inform you that FUFe Breeding and Registration Comission turned down our request for preliminary recognition.

We are not going to Riga this year.

At the moment the Breed Council for Bombay don’t know  if it’s worth the struggle to continue. We are a few people working with this, in fact we are two.



FIFe preliminary recognition process

FIFe BOMBAY non Breed Council!

Fantastic news!

The FIFe Board discussed our request to set up a BC for BOM non, and to grant an exception to BC Rules art. 2, point 3 for BC of breeds not fully recognised. The Board agreed to grant this exception.

The Board consequently agrees to set up a BOM non BC and to appoint Mary as its Secretary; they have added the BC for BOM non on the FIFe website and indicated Mrs. Mary Hellman as the BC secretary.

Permission for breeding BOM in FIFe

Permission for a breeding programme

SVERAK gave permission for a breeding programme with a Bombay female not carrying cb and a brown Burmese male. The two cats are Securitazz Xtravaganza and Kitakiss Barack Obama. They gave permission for unlimited litters.

This is the start for the Bombays in FIFe!
