Breed Info

Mokave Jag Cats is a new large cat breed first registered in 2005. Created from a blend of bobcat, Jungle Cat and Asian Leopard Cat genes, each hybrid generation was selectively bred to ensure a pet-like temperament while retaining their exotic features, size, and intelligence.

Jag Cats resemble miniature Jaguars with lynx-tipped ears. They have muscular bodies, wide-set eyes, broad muzzles, strong jaws, huge paws, thick tails and are super smart and irresistibly affectionate!

Shown below are photos of three of the four wild cats whose offspring helped to create my Jag Cats. (I was unable to get an actual photo of my breed's bobcat ancestor and didn't want to use a stock photo.)

"I love your website and am interested in purchasing a kitten from you. Originally, I wanted to get an Ocelot, but after a lot of research, I realized that it was not such a great idea. But I love the leopard-style markings... Your Jag Cat seems to be just the answer."
