The Bombay is a self or solid black shorthaired cat with distinctive black pads and nose. The eyes tend to be gold, although they can be varying shades of yellow, and even green. This highly intelligent cat is famous for being vocal and has a remarkably loud voice for its size.
The ideal weight for a Bombay cat is 2.5-4.5kgs or 5.5-10lbs.
A healthy Bombay cat should expect to enjoy a life expectancy of between 12-16 years.
An average Bombay cat litter produces around 6 kittens.
The Bomaby is seen in just solid black. The coat is sleek and lays close to the body.
The Bombay has a friendly, outgoing temperament with a high level of intelligence and is not a cat that likes to be left alone for long periods of time.
Expect to pay around £100 for a pedigree Bombay kitten. Litters are fairly uncommon.
