'Roca'

SaraJen Roca Patron Silver

This stunning girl is self-possessed and confident in her serene beauty. She liked to be shown and garnered a Regional Win both the Kitten and Championship category, as well as the title of Triple Grand Champion. She was then bred, producing a wonderful litter of kittens. After her litter she put on weight and even more coat. She looked fabulous and in great condition so we took her out to another show, where she did really well, achieving a Best Allbreed Cat award among others. So all told, she is now a Quadruple Grand Champion.

Her boning is substantial, her coat is magnificent and shaggy even at a young age, and she is wonderfully balanced.

Sozi is probably my most intense Toy Fiend. Ever. That may not qualify her for all her titles, but it sure helped her show off her charms. She is a gorgeous calico girl with an out-sized personality. Wonderful, inquisitive expression, green eyes, black and white lynx tips on those huge ears. And a gorgeous, full coat as a young adult. such a ‘looker’ and with the clean profile, solid muzzle, heavy boning and overall balance the breed requires.

Scoobie is our darling beefcake ‘pink’ boy. He has a wonderful expression, a smooth, gentle scoop to his profile, a good, boxy muzzle and strong chin, fabulous boning and a glorious, luxurious coat. Never thought I’d would show a pink boy, but there ya go! His personality is sweet and comical and it’s hard to decide whether to hug him or laugh at him. Such a charmer.
Scoobie had a fabulous show career. When he competed as an adult, during the show year from May 2003 to April 2004, he was Best of the Best Cat in Show no less than 8 times (! !), at venues all around the country. He finished in the International Championship Cat Standings with the 5th highest ranking of all cats that year — 5th Best International Cat! We are honored and awed to be owned by this sweet boy.
He is now retired from our breeding program and he lives with us in pampered comfort.
Scoobie had cardiac ultrasounds in December 2003, March 2005, October 2006, May 2008 and June 2011: all were normal and he is clear of HCM at this time. He is also negative/negative for

  • Dam: Champion SaraJen Isle-of-Jura
This is my beloved Jaermeister. Such a wonderful boy! So very precocious even at the age of 10 weeks, I just couldn’t wait to get him to a show.
This picture was taken when he was about 10 years old. By this time he was neutered and he had plenty of time to lounge about in warm sunny windows, which accounts for his brown-tinged fur.
This boy had so many different exclamations — chirps, trills, outright meows, and cat statements of satisfaction or indignation. And he so often passed this trait on to his offspring, of which there are many (he was a stud until he was 10!).
We were so sad to lose him at almost 15 years of age to cancer. There will never be another quite like Jaeger.

Here’s my Brooksie… Love this child!! Huge, huggable lug. Loves to stretch out when I hold him, particularly walking to and from the show rings, with his back feet planted firmly in my palm and the rest of him extending up the rest of my whole torso, head bent back so I can give him kisses between his ears. He has immense boning, great conformation, huge upright ears with lovely lynx tips and tufting, good straight hind legs, massive head, strong muzzle and a gentle curve to his profile. And then there’s that expression, with those enormous eyes. Sorry if I go on a bit, but he is such a love and he loves to show. All of the judges comment on his wonderful personality!
The same year he competed as a kitten, and achieved 2nd Best International Allbreed Kitten, he continued his winning streak into the adult Championship class. In the following two and a half months through the end of the show year he was Best Cat in Show in every show in which he competed. And in that short time he beat enough other champions to also earn an International Allbreed title as an adult — 10th Best International Allbreed Cat.
We continued to show him into the 2014 show year because he was doing so well and he loved to show. He remained successful throughout the year and achieved the distinction of the 2nd Best (Highest Scoring) Allbreed Championship Cat Internationally!!! (TICA) He beat out thousands of other cats throughout the year to earn this honor and we are very proud of him, to say the least!! In addition, because he has achieved these 3 International Titles he has also earned the honor of “Lifetime Achievement” in TICA. And we’re glad he’s still a regular guy (er, make that ‘goofball’) at home.

Robbie is a huge beautiful boy. He is a toy FIEND and still a cuddly lover. We showed him in TICA as a kitten and he achieved standing as Mid-Atlantic Regional Winner. Then as an adult we showed him to Grand Champion status in CFA. Since retiring from the show ring he has produced many beautiful, healthy good-natured kittens!

He has a beautiful head structure, tall, well-placed ears, sculpted profile and a nice strong chin and muzzle. We hope to have a few litters from him with several of our girls.

Our happy, sweet Xavier came to live at SaraJen in December 2018, having previously lived at Cloistercoon Cattery in New York with our longtime friend, David Billingsley. David graciously allowed Xavier to come to us to help us keep strong genetic diversity in our breeding program. Xavier was bred by Lone and and Peter Møgeltoft, Aloa Cattery in Denmark.
Xavier is a black smoke that truly looks solid black when you just look at him. You have to push back the coat to see the small band of white at the base of each hair. He has a delightful, playful personality and is fond of giving head butts to us and visitors alike. He is also quite talkative and does not hesitate to comment on just about everything. His babies with us have been sweet and affectionate.

Beautiful black Spice! Dramatic girl with such an amazing, thick shiny black coat and beautiful green eyes. Along with that she has a big strong muzzle, perfect scoop to her profile, big tall ears and lynx tips to paint with. She was shown as a kitten and did really well, capturing a Regional Win in the Mid-Atlantic. But after a while she just wanted to lie down and curl up on the judging table, so we decided to not press any more. But we are happy with her sweet and playful disposition on top of her beauty.

With her expressive green eyes, tall tufted ears and strong muzzle she has that appealing Maine Coon look. And her personality is both loving and spunky, much like her mom’s.

Ruggiero is a very serious, intense looking young man. Yet his looks belie his warm,  affectionate, cheerful disposition. We are indebted to Christina Micheli of Tempio Felinox in Switzerland for entrusting us with him. He is a black silver classic tabby with a high degree of shading. We like his large ears, his intense gaze, his nice profile and strong muzzle. He is a well-muscled chap with a long, lean body and a tail to match, and will continue to fill out as he matures. He is also a fierce toy attacker! We have found he works well with our beautiful girls and are very pleased with the kittens he produces. He also could not get his titles due to the pandemic, unfortunately.

Dewy, like her half-sister Luna,is another beautiful example of a silver torbie and white — but she has really high white! With her gorgeous clean profile, large strong muzzle, and big ears set so nicely, she is a gorgeous girl. And to complete the picture, her hefty, substantial body is just dripping in glorious coat.

Luna is one of our stunning silver torbie and white girls (aka silver patch tabby and white). Everything about her seems designed to capture your heart. Elegant and flashy, she would have done well in the show hall, especially with her beautiful head type and dramatic large ears. Sadly, due to the pandemic, she’ll not be able to claim the titles she so richly deserves. Nevertheless, she’s a charming happy camper and is generally looking for mischief.

This is the lovely, and fiercely elegant Leya. Much like her older brother Jake she has a long body, long tail and long legs. Oh, and long lynx tips. You can see her strong boning and wonderful head type – particularly her large, boxy muzzle. Her penetrating gaze may tempt you not to touch, but she surprises you by arching into your hand for your gentle pets. A really beautiful girl, this one.

Sweet Jake! Crazy boy of our hearts. You can see some of his wild charm from these pictures, taken when he was a youngster. The pairing of Manny and Boodles produced some extreme, gorgeous babies (see his younger sister, Leya). Huge ears, big boxy muzzle with a great strong chin, enormous expressive eyes, long long body, long long tail, long long legs. And totally full of Himself! He was a joy to take to shows and never tired of playing. He achieved his Supreme Grand Champion title in the fall of 2019, though there were many strong competitors at the time. We’re very proud of him and love giving him hugs.  After producing several lovely litters he is now neutered and lives with us as a pampered boy.

We’re happy we were able to keep this handsome boy from one of our 2019 litters. JT is a warm brown classic tabby boy with an excellent pattern,  a great profile, good strong chin, well-set ears and a nice expression. He is also very long in the body with nice muscular legs. He is easy to handle is a nice, happy boy. We enjoyed showing him a bit as a kitten, enough to earn a Regional Award. But we could not continue to get his adult titles due to the pandemic. Nevertheless, he has made some wonderful mellow babies for us!

He is now neutered and is immediately available to the right home. See more information on our Retired Friends page.

We just love our Nick. A number of years ago I met Nick’s sire at a TICA show and I was absolutely smitten with him. And so were the judges because he just walked off with the Maine Coon class that day. So, many happy thank you’s to Coleen and Paul of Paleeni Maine Coons for letting us have this wonderful boy. He is a huge, muscular boy so it’s a good thing he has a loving, chirping disposition. With a gently curving profile, a big boxy muzzle, a deep strong chin, those big well-set ears and his gorgeous expressive eye I was hoping to show him to get all his titles. Unfortunately, the pandemic quashed those plans. But in our minds he is a Supreme! And he has produced wonderful happy healthy kittens for us.

This beautiful girl is a wild child, daughter of Sozi, the original wild and crazy child. Such energy in this girl as a kitten and young adult! And yet she’s just as sweet as she can be.  She was a delight to show, just like her mom. I wish we could have shown her in Championship class to get her adult titles, but the pandemic put a halt to that. Nevertheless, we she had several litters of lovely babies with us.

Now it’s time we find a good, loving home for her. If you are interested, please send us an email at sarajencats@gmail.com.

Blanca is a strikingly beautiful ‘flashy’ girl with a sweet and demure temperament. The silver torbie and white coloration is an absolute favorite of mine and she exhibits it in such a special way. She and the kittens she produces have great boning and lovely personalities. We are so lucky to have her!
She had a cardiac ultrasound 2017 at a year of age and it was normal. She is also genetically negative for the primary HCM gene.

The lovely Frannie, with those huge, soulful eyes. Frannie is the one girl I kept from Caol Ila’s last litter, and she is just a sweetheart.

  • Red Silver Classic Tabby and White Female (Cameo and White)
  • Born: 6/29/15        
  • Sire:  GC Highlander Chuck Norris
  • Dam: SaraJen Sake
Simi is a darling, beautiful, playful cameo girl formerly in our breeding program. She is one of those cats that joyfully arches her back into your hand with just your merest touch on her back. We didn’t keep her breeding long, though, because she gave us two of her daughters to keep: SaraJen Bacardi Carta Blanca and SaraJen Bacardi Razz Rum! Simi is now retired in a loving home in Virginia.
She had a cardiac ultrasound which was negative, and her parentage has been thoroughly screened. She is also negative for the primary HCM gene.
See more pictures of her below, at 6 months of age. All pictures here are by Richard Katris of Chanan. Just click on the photo to enlarge.
