The breed was first develop in the 1950s  by a breeder named Nikki Horner whose purpose is to have a breed that resembled a small panther. She used certain American Shorthairs and Burmese to get the all-black, copper-eyed cat.

The Cat Fanciers Association granted the Championship status to the Bombay in 1976. The International Cat Association considers Bombay as part of the Burmese group. The American Cat Fanciers Association also recognizes the breed. The crossbreeding of Burmese and Bombay is allowed by all three registries.
