Australian Bombay

The Australian Bombay originated as a hybrid between the Burmese and the British Shorthair. 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. It is not a natural breed but a genetic hybrid, with distinctive features that separate it from its foundation (parent) breeds.

The Bombay is a medium-size cat, well-balanced, friendly, alert, and outgoing; muscular and having a surprising weight for its size (sometimes referred to as a mini-Panther). The body and tail should be of medium length, the head rounded with medium-sized, wide-set ears, a moderate nose break which is visible (not a stop), large rounded wide-set eyes and an overall look of excellent proportions and carriage. They are smart and agile and very desirable as totally indoor cats.
