It is believed, that they developed separately from other cat populations in the inner country of Cyprus. Due to the hard circumstances of living, cold, wet winters and very dry hot summers they developed their tremendous coats and huge boning. The main food were big lizards, snakes and rats. Smaller cats or cats with weak teeth were not able to survive hard living in the mountains. To maintain the beauty of the Aphrodites we would like to request judges to prefer large examples of both sexes of that breed.
