Why the fancy names?
You may wonder why pedigree cats have complicated
names. There is a method to the madness. Registered names tell a lot
about each cat. For example:
official registered name is:
DiCaprio River Tam of PixelPerfect.
To decode that name, break it up into: DiCaprio River Tam
Dicaprio (prefix) is the name of the
breeder that produced her.
* All pedigree cats keep the prefix for life whether they become pets,
breeding, or show cats.
River Tam is her name.
* Often shortened to a nickname (like "River") longer, unique names are
better for recordkeeping.
of PixelPerfect (suffix) shows that she is
owned by PixelPerfect.
* Names only include an "of" suffix if the cat is owned by a registered cattery.
* When a cat stays with the cattery that produced her there's no suffix.
You won't see a cat named Pixelperfect Kitty Cat of Pixel Perfect. She
would just be Pixelperfect Kitty Cat.
