to CyCNBA (Cyprus Cats National Breeds Association)... the home of the APHRODITE CAT,
the national cat of Cyprus.
We began breeding Cyprus Aphrodite Cats about 7 years ago and found that the breed ran true. Currently, we have seven generations. These are wonderful cats with beautiful temperaments and we believe the breed is worth saving, preserving and promoting.
From 1 July 2012, the Cyprus Aphrodite has full Recognition with WCF (World Cat Federation). The world's oldest breed of cat is now the newest recognised breed. This is important not only for the international cat fancy but for Cyprus itself - a cat to be proud of.
Interested people from around the world have contacted us. We now have Cyprus Aphrodite cats in Germany, Poland, Belgium, France, Italy, Australia and Hungary. We have received an enormous amount of interest and support and hope that the Cyprus Aphrodite will now take its place alongside such breeds as Siamese or Persian.
We love our cats and we hope you do too. Lynne and Teresa.
