Bombay is a crossed breed by Burmese and black American shorthair cats, having most characteristics taken by the Burmese.
Bombay cats’ main characteristic is the black short hair glossy coat with black nose, toes and large yellow eyes. They are medium-sized cats with a muscular body and longer legs than the Burmese.
The Bombay cat is an easygoing, social cat, affectionate, playful needs attention. They get along perfectly with children and other pets, as soon as they have the dominant place. They love to snuggle and spend almost all their time being close to you, even when you sleep. They really need attention and interaction to be happy, so if you don’t have spare time to interact with them, you better not choose a Bombay cat. Though, they are ideal for children, even very young ones, as soon as the kids are taught to treat them with respect. Then a unbreakable bond might occur between your kid and a Bombay cat.
The Bombay cats are not so independent, so they can perfectly stay indoors and be happy having family’s attention and care, as they hate to stay alone.
In general, Bombay cats are healthy, but we should not forget their annual vaccination, to protect them from the common cat’s health issues.They do not some special grooming, apart from the usual ones: regular weekly brushing to keep their coat shiny, nail trimming, teeth brushing and ear cleaning when necessary. They are highly recommended if you have kids at home.
