Chantalle Bombays

Chantalle Cattery made an interesting detour in September of 2000 when I first saw a little black ten week old kitten who was all eyes. Her name was Holiday and I thought she was one of the most gorgeous kittens I had ever seen. I fell in love with this kitten and was very lucky that Lou Keim of Bijouxcats Cattery let me have her. Holiday is a Bombay, which is a cross between a black American Shorthair and a Sable Burmese. Bombays are like sleek, miniature black panthers. They have a sensual, muscular body surrounded by a shiny patent leather coat. Their eyes are gold to copper in color and incredibly expressive. The personality of the Bombay is very similar to that of the affectionate Burmese.

I had a lot of fun with my Bombays in 2001 and 2002. I granded two Bombays of my own breeding, Chantalle's Midnight Mirla and Chantalle's Glimmer in the Darkness. Glimmer won a Regional kitten award of Eighth Best Kitten in the North Atlantic Region and Holiday made a National win of 23rd Best Cat. It was an exciting way to start out in the Bombay breed. I have retired Holiday and hope that she will have many beautiful kittens which will help me to carry my passion for this breed into the future.
