  1. Joyce

    My names for my rescued Bombay bottle fed twins. Are rose and Diamond. Diamonds are made from coal. And rose from her rosey purrsonality.

  2. Ella

    Mine is a street rescue with a very clumsy and insane wild personality and her name is Licorice, because black licorice

  3. Patty Waltz

    Im thinking Godiva because this is a feral cat and seems aloof at this time. She will sit and watch you and does not spook away but is appearing as if she is allowing us to be in the room with us. I love her large round emerald green eyes!!!

  4. Sophia

    Nowhere does it mention what is quite possibly the most popular make for Bombay cats – and was the name of the one that adopted my sister and I when we were kids — Midnight.

      Hello Olive, I just went ahead and selected a random name for you, and the result was: Nori. It’s inspired by the dark, almost black, color of nori (the dried seaweed snack). You might also want to think of something inspired by black olives—could be fun for the two of you to have companion names. 🙂 All the best to you and your new kitten!

  5. Marcheta C Bryce

    My female Bombay cat’s name is Luna. She was up for adoption for almost 5 years. I got her last year when she was 9 years old. She weighs so much that it’s hard for me to pick her up.

      Wow, that is an incredibly long time to wait in the shelter. I’m glad you were able to find her and give her a home. If you’d like to help her lose weight, our cat weight calculator would be a good place to start. Hope you two have many healthy years together ahead!
