About the Breed and the Club
The Bombay or Asian Self
The Bombay (GCCF breed number 72) is a solid jet black cat, with magical golden eyes. It is the nearest cat genetically possible to a "Black Burmese". The Bombay comes under the Foreign section and is one of the five breeds within the Asian Group. The Asian Group as a whole is represented by the Asian Group Cat Society, the Asian Cat Association and the Bombay and Asian Self Breed Club.
The Bombay and Asian Self Breed Club is a GCCF affiliated specialist breed club dedicated to the advancement and welfare of the UK Bombay and related self colour cats of Burmese type.
The Bombay and Asian Self Breed Club was started in August 1995 by a group of breeders and owners of Bombays and Asian Selfs (including the Torties). On 27th October 1999 the club was granted affiliation to the GCCF and the Asian Self was awarded Championship Status from June 2000.
The objective of the club is to serve the interests and promote the welfare of all Bombay and Asian Self Cats and in doing so, promote correct breeding practices and general well being. Additionally, the club endeavours to serve its members by disseminating information on development, as well as informing and educating the general public. The club newsletter Spectrum Seventy Two is produced annually and is continuously searching for new material. To submit an article, please contact the Editor Sharon Keenan
The Officers and Committee are striving to enhance communication between all breeders and in particular, wish to offer help and advice to newcomers, whether they be exhibiting, breeding or owning these lovely cats as pets. If you wish to know anything not covered here then please contact Jacki McCarten (Hon. Secretary) for general enquiries, Deborah Laugher (Membership Secretary) for membership enquiries and Carolyn Clark (Kitten Registrar) for queries about available kittens.
