Bombay was developed and registered as a breed in the USA in 1958. It's called Bombay because its black coat remind that of the Indian Black Leopard, panther.
     This is a compact, muscular black cat with a sheen to its very short, satin-like coat. It has large, golden eyes and wide-set ears on its rounded head.
     Bombays are said to be assertive, confident, gentle, vocal but soft-voiced, intelligent, sensitive, active, inquisitive, playful, patient and unusually friendly.
     Color forms: only black! (It is a domestic mini-panther).
