Cyprus Cat

One of the feral Cyprus Cats that hang out in the neighbourhood.

The story goes that the Cyprus Cats’ descendants were originally brought over by St. Helen from Egypt to help get rid of snakes (à la St. Patrick). Though not a formal breed, the Cyprus Cat is now considered a unique landrace, or traditional domesticated variety.
