Is there such a thing as a Bombay cat?
5/5 (800066 Views . 400033 Votes)
- The Cat Fanciers Association gave the Bombay full recognition in 1978. Today the breed is recognized by all cat associations. To maintain their body type and coat texture, Bombays may be outcrossed to sable Burmese. The CFA also permits outcrosses to black American Shorthairs, but this is rarely done because of differences in body type.
How old does a Bombay cat have to be to be a Burmese cat?
- Some associations permit these kittens to be registered as Burmese. The Bombay is a medium-size cat; when lifted, he feels heftier than he looks. The breed develops slowly and males may not reach full size and musculature until they are 2 years old. The outgoing Bombay is a perfect choice for families with children and cat-friendly dogs.
How big does a Bombay Shorthair cat get?
- To maintain their body type and coat texture, Bombays may be outcrossed to sable Burmese. The CFA also permits outcrosses to black American Shorthairs, but this is rarely done because of differences in body type. The Bombay typically weighs between 8 and 15 pounds. Males are generally larger than females.
What's the difference between a Burmese and a Bombay?
- The Bombay generally combines the easy going temperament and robust nature of the American Shorthair and the social, inquisitive, lap-loving character of the Burmese. With the exception of color, the Bombay and Burmese standards are very similar.
