Found some facts about Cyppies...
They are descended from cats imported by St Helen from Egypt and the Holy Land to rid Cyprus of poisonous snakes. They are connected with the Byzantine monastery of St. Nicholas. There is a poem called The Cats Of St Nicholas, written by Nobel Lauriate Giorgio Seferis.
