Black Cat Breeds


Cat breeds such as the Bombay possess intensely black coats. The Bombay cat breed's coat looks like that of an Indian Black Leopard, hence the cat breed's name. It's also known as a Black Burmese, because this breed came about after crosses with a sable Burmese and a black American Shorthair. The Bombay sports large, golden eyes and wide-set ears on its rounded head. This black beauty speaks softly, loves to play and is highly confident yet gentle.
