Bombay Cat

The Bombay is similar in build to the Burmese, and in the UK is is classified as one of the Asian breeds; cats of Burmese type but of colors other than the recognized Burmese colors. This is a cat which is neither as sleek as the Siamese, nor as rounded as the British or American Shorthairs; it is somewhere in between with a wedge shaped head of shorter length than a Siamese. The ears are medium to large. Any tendency to look like a Siamese or Oriental in body shape is considered a serious fault.

The term Bombay cat is used to refer to two different breeds of cat. 

British Bombay

The British Bombay cat is the name given to black cats of the Asian group. It is a cat of Burmese type with a black coat, toes, nose, and copper to greenish eyes. The close-lying, sleek and glossy black coat should be coloured to the roots, with little or no paling. The Bombay is a shorthair breed of domestic cat, closely related to the Burmese..

American Bombay

The American breed called Bombay was bred in 1958 in Louisville, Kentucky, when Nikki Horner of Shawnee Cattery deliberately bred an American Shorthair with a Burmese for the purpose of creating a domesticated cat that resembled a "miniature black panther". These cats have copper or golden eyes, and a jet-black coat. Occasionally, a Bombay kitten may be born sable colored, because of its relation to the Burmese.
