A people-oriented breed, the Bombay enthusiastically greets visitors. This easygoing feline is sweet, affectionate and curious. The Bombay enjoys playing fetch, going for leash walks and inventing entertainment. This breed is known for its beautiful gold to copper eyes and short, flat, gleaming coat that accentuates a solid, muscular body. A devoted companion, the Bombay gets along well with children and other pets.
The Bombay was developed by breeder Nikki Horner of Louisville, Ky. Through a long process of careful selection, she consistently produced a hybrid black cat that combines the easygoing temperament of the American Shorthair and the social, inquisitive, lap-loving character of the Burmese.
