Bombays are generally healthy cats, with a life expectancy of 12-16 years. They are not prone to any specific health issues, but like all cats, they require regular veterinary check-ups and preventative care.

Overall, the Bombay is a beautiful and loving breed that makes a great pet for families and individuals.
