Sire:  Regional Winner, Supreme Grand Champion SaraJen Virginia Gentleman ("Butchie")
Dam:  Regional Winner, Supreme Grand Champion SaraJen Madras ("Maddie")

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 are very proud of  him and we're glad he's still a regular guy at home.

He is negative for the HCM gene mutation and his first HCM ultrasound in September of this year was clear.

'Butchie'
Regional Winner, Supreme Grand Champion
SaraJen Virginia Gentleman
Pedigree
Born:  January 23, 2009         Red Classic Tabby and White

Sire:  SaraJen Menunketuck of FogCity
Dam:  Terrificats Cherry Pop

'Butchie' is a very dandiifed high-white Maine Coon Cat boy-child. His registered name is "Virginia Gentleman" because of his elegant, shiny, silky red and white coat, with his long white 'waistcoat' gloves and vest. So, for a call name we just had to call him 'Butchie' because by appearance he is so NOT!  Type-wise he is all Maine Coon. Although it's not so evident in this picture, up close and personal you'd see his very strong muzzle and chin and his lovely gently curved profile. His facial markings give him a pensive look which can melt your heart. Overall, he is wonderfully built, with powerful legs, a hard, muscled body and a long plume-like tail. We think he will make some beautiful babies with our girlie girls.  He is negative for the HCM gene mutation; and he had cardiac ultrasounds in April 2010, June 2011, November 2012 and October 2013 and all were normal.

'Poncho'
Champion
Mainelyclassic Sanmatias of SaraJen
Pedigree
Born:  April 20, 2012         Red Silver Classic Tabby

Sire:  DGC, RW Quinsigamond Tank of Mainelyclassic
Dam:  Sarajen Victoria of Mainelyclassic

'Poncho' is our handsome, strong, hard-muscled boy from Rae Sammis of Mainelyclassic. And since he's so strong it's a really good thing he is sweet tempered! He has a beautiful, cleanly chiseled head with all the perfect type a good Maine Coon should have. We sould have loved to have shown him more for higher titles but he got loose once in a show hall in New Jersey and did 3 loops around the huge hotel ballroom, jumping over judging ring dividers as if it was a steeplechase competition. Needless to say, that pretty much ended his show career. But we love him nonetheless.

He is negative for the HCM gene mutation; and he had cardiac ultrasound in October 2013 and it was clear.

'Scoobie'
International Winner, Supreme Grand Champion
SaraJen Scoresby

TICA's 5th Best Allbreed Cat International (2003-2004)
TICA's Best Allbreed Cat, Mid-Atlantic Region (2003-2004)
TICA's Best Maine Coon Cat, Mid-Atlantic Region (2003-2004)


Pedigree

Born:  September 3, 2002         Red Silver Classic Tabby with White Male 

Sire:  Champion Coonoquan Brannan of Fogcity
Dam:  Regional Winner, Triple Grand Champion Mainesuspect India Pale of SaraJen

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 be showing 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. We recently retired him from our breeding program because he produced the handsome and sweet boy, Shiner Bock, pictured above.

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 the HCM gene mutation.

TICA's 3rd Best Allbreed Alter of the Year 2012-2013 - International
TICA's Best Maine Coon Cat Alter 2012-2013 - International

BEST ALLBREED ALTER of the Year  --  Mid-Atlantic Region (2013)
BEST MAINE COON CAT ALTER of the Year  --  Mid-Atlantic Region (2013)
 

Born:  August 8,2010         Brown Classic Tabby and White

Sire:  Sire: Grand Champion, National Winner Tropikoons Hang Ten of Mainesuspect
Dam: SaraJen Tullamore Dew

'Woodie is a fabulous brown tabby and white sweetheart!!  When he was a 12 week old kitten we knew he was really, really nice, but we agreed to place him as a pet. As it happens, that particular placement didn't work out so he came back to us within a short period of time. Lucky for us!! As he continued to grow and fill out I realized this wonderful boy was staying with us. Funny how these things work out. 

We showed Woodie as both a kitten and an adult. Since he was still a bit 'gawky' at 8 months (as Maine Coon boys can sometimes be), we took his littermate, SaraJen Madras, out to shows first. After Maddie got her title of Supreme Grand Champion we finally took Woodie out at the age of 10 months. And he looked great! He finished his Supreme Grand Champion title in 3 shows, just like his sister! We couldn't be happier. After he was neutered we took him out for another whole year as an Alter -- and as his titles attest, he did fabulously.

In addition to being a winner in the show ring, he is a winner with the spectators, as well. He loves to stand on the grooming table on his back legs and stretch all the way up to my chin and give unrelenting head butts, purring all the while. He likes being a picture perfect Maine Coon ambassador!

Woodie had his first cardiac ultrasound in June 2011 and ia second in 2012 and is clear of HCM.

Shiner Bock
Pedigree
Born:  July 4, 2005         Black Silver Classic Tabby Male

Sire:  International Winner, Supreme Grand Champion SaraJen Scoresby (pictured above)
Dam:  Mainesuspect Caol Ila of SaraJen

Bock is a wonderful male, son of Scoobie and Ila. He is a gorgeous black silver tabby boy with an extremely long body , a luxurious coat, a gently scooped profile, a strong muzzle and just the kind of outrageous ears that we like on our cats! He also has this very, very sweet, gentle personality and he is extremely loving. What a pleasure to show this boy!  We showed him as a kitten and he achieved a Regional Winner status. Then, as an adult he managed to become a Supreme Grand Champion in only two shows!!!!!   This is truly a 'BEST' for SaraJen. Even his father, Scoobie, took three shows to accomplish that!  Although we only showed him as an adult in three shows for the 2005-2006 show year he still achieved a Regional Winner status because of his high scoring.

Bock had a cardiac ultrasound in October 2006 and May 2008 and is free of HCM at this time. He is also negative/negative for the HCM gene mutation. His hips have a preliminary 'Fair' rating from OFA..

Jaeger is a very striking, affectionate, vocal boy who loves to give kisses. He is tall on his legs with a long, shiny, black coat and a well-muscled body. He punctuates his body slams and head bumps with chirps and raspy trills. He can steal your heart and leave you breathless in less time than it takes to say his name!

As an adult, he quickly qualified for all his titles, achieving the maximum of Supreme Grand Champion!

Jaeger had cardiac ultrasounds in July, 2000, February, 2001, April, 2002, December 2003, March 2005, October 2006 and May 2008 and is free of HCM at this time. He is also negative/negative for the HCM gene mutation. His hips have been rated by OFA as 'Good'.
