Common health problems and illness
A form of heart disease, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy can be inherited in some Bombay cats. It causes a thickening in the wall of the heart, which restricts blood flow which can then lead to heart failure.
Bombay's like to eat, and can pack on the pounds very easily if you don't watch what you are feeding them. Keeping your cat at a healthy weight is important, and is an easy way to protect their overall health. Obesity is more common in old age as your cat will naturally become less active.
