With its jet black, gleaming coat, gold to copper eyes, solid body and sweet facial expression, the ideal Bombay has an unmistakable look of its own. The Bombay is a medium-size cat, well-balanced, friendly, alert, and outgoing; muscular and having a surprising weight for its size.
Bombays are wonderful companions and will sit on your lap hour after hour; they love to be around people. They will follow you wherever you go changing rooms whenever you move. They want to be the center of attention and in the middle of everything. They are highly intelligent cats that love to play and are easy to train.
The Bombay is one of the easiest breeds to groom and bathe. Since their coats are so short and satiny there is very little shedding. If given a monthly bath, their shedding is almost nonexistent.
