"Velcro cat", "Parlor panther" and more: there are many nicknames given to the splendid purebred cat American Bombay. It is a very special animal, born in an attempt to create a breed of domestic cats that resemble panthers as much as possible. Here are the pictures and photos most beautiful that portray him in multiple contexts and situations.
To give rise to this breed, a breeder named Nikki Horner mated a black American Shorthair and a female Burmese.
The result was a cat with a short and shiny coat like that of the Burmese, but very black like some specimens of American Shorthair.
Nicknames like "Mini panther" and "Parlor panther" refer precisely to its appearance, similar to that of a miniature panther.
And it is precisely from the panthers, quite widespread in India, that this breed takes its name: Bombay is in fact one of the largest cities in this country.
The Bombay are recognized immediately by the black color that covers their entire body, including the nose and the tips of the legs.
As they get older, however, these cats may begin to show some gray hair here and there.
Their distinctive black fur is also very easy to keep clean, as it does not require too frequent grooming and is not prone to too intense seasonal shedding.
As far as their temperament is concerned, Bombays are nicknamed "velcro cats" because they like to be physically very close to their favorite humans.
They will constantly try to get their attention and once they get it they will regularly follow them around the house.
However, they are also very friendly towards strangers: you will not see them running away under the sofa at the sight of people they do not know, who may instead want to welcome them warmly upon their entry.
They are therefore sociable animals, which consequently should not be left for too long as they risk developing anxiety and depression if they feel alone.
If you are forced to leave them alone in the house while you are at work, make sure they have plenty of toys to keep busy with, even if a playmate is always your best bet.
