{Saj} is like in english "pet" just a general word.
In Klingon, there is {targh} "Targ", an animal that looks like a mix of a dog and a pig or some like that, 
and Klingons hold it like Humans have a dog.

You asked for a cat, well of course there is not a word for "cat" directly, but there's an animal similar 
to a terran cat, Klingons call it {vIghro'} translated into english as "v'gro' (catlike animal)". Another 
one is the "tika cat", in Klingon {tIqa' vIghro'}.

And, of course there are many other animal names known, but it's not always sure what they look like.
