Mumbai Cat Breed Information
If you want your Bombay to be lucky and fit so you can spend your quality of life with him, do your work before you take him home. To find out more about the Bombay heritage, character and appearance, or to find out more about Bombay growers, please check the Cat Fanciers Association, Cats Center Stage, the Fanciers Breeder Referral List, and The International Cat Association website.
Respectable breeders adhere to a conduct codex which forbids the sale to animal shops and wholesale dealers and defines the responsibility of the breeders towards their own dogs and purchasers. Select a grower who has completed the necessary healthcare certification to avoid as far as possible the risk of genetically determined conditions and a grower who will raise a kitten at home.
Catkins who are insulated can become frightened and anxious and later in their lives can be hard to socialise. Many serious growers have web sites, so how can you tell who's good and who's not? Among the colored banners are always available kitties, several throws on the site, the selection of any kitten and the possibility to purchase your kitten with your personal payment method.
These things are practical, but they are almost never associated with serious growers. No matter whether you plan to get your cat lover from a cat farmer, an animal shop or another resource, don't ignore the old saying "Let the purchaser take care". Renowned kennels and kennels can be difficult to tell apart from dependable farms.
There is no 100% guarantee that you will never buy a kitten that is ill, but research into the race (so you know what to expect), reviewing the establishment (to help determine unsanitary situations or ill animals) and asking the right question can decrease the chance of getting into a catastrophic state.
Don't neglect to ask your vet, who can often point you to a serious kennel owner, a breeding organisation or some other trusted resource for you. Make at least as much research into your kitten as you would into selecting a new vehicle or costly equipment. You may have to allow six month or more for the right kitten to be available, according to what you are looking for.
Catteries often do not discharge kitties into a new home until they are between 12 and 16week-old. When you buy a kitten, consider whether an older Bombay could be a better option for your life style. Kitties are a great deal of laughs, but they are also a great deal of work and can be devastating until they turn a little more sedated grown-up.
You will know more about your personal and physical well-being with an grown-up. When you are interested in buying an adulthood kitten instead of a kitten, ask the breeder to buy a pensioned show or kitten or if you know of an adulthood kitten who needs a new home.
Bombay is an unusual race. It' unlikely that you'll find one at a sanctuary or through a group of rescuers, but it doesn't do any harm to look at him. Breeding pets sometimes end up in the pound after they have lost their home due to the deaths of an animal owners, a separation or a changed financial state.
Review the lists on Petfinder, Adopt-a-Pet.com or the Fanciers Breeder Referral List and ask growers if they know of a Bombay who needs a new home. Whenever you purchase your Bombay, make sure you have a good agreement with the vendor, animal sanctuary or emergency group who will determine the responsibility on both sides.
Kittens or adults, take your Bombay to your vet shortly after adopting.
