Hi Nora… thanks for introducing me to the Mokave Jag Cat.

I would like briefly, if I may to try and summarize this cat breed on this page. People can visit your website for more details. Please leave a comment if you wish to add or adjust.

This is a cat breed in development, the process having commenced in 2000. It is a wildcat hybrid originally carefully combining the genes of the Asian leopard cat, the jungle cat (Felis Chaus) and the Bobcat with the domestic cat with the intention of creating a miniature jaguar. The overall appearance is a reflection of the jaguar, one of the big cats whose range is in Central and South America.

This has been achieved by selective breeding of: Highland Lynx, Desert Lynx, jungle cat and Asian leopard cat hybrids.

The resultant domestic cat is large and substantial, weighing up to 28 pounds, with a long lifespan of between fifteen to twenty years.

The Mokave Jag Cat has a wide range of coat colours including the classic rosetted (spotted) wild cat look and also including snows, classic tabbies and black, which I presume to be a melanistic coat.

The classic eye colour is emerald green or gold. The eye colour changes as the cat matures.

Temperament is excellent: friendly and intelligent.

See the Mokave Jag Breed Standard (opens in a new window).

Hi, I am 70-years-of-age at 2019. For 14 years before I retired at 57, I worked as a solicitor in general law specialising in family law. Before that I worked in a number of different jobs including professional photography. I have a longstanding girlfriend, Michelle. We like to walk in Richmond Park which is near my home because I love nature and the landscape (as well as cats and all animals).
