Why the fancy names?
You may well wonder why pedigree cats have complicated
names. There is a method to the madness. Registered names tell a lot
about each cat. For example, our queen River:
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 pet cats,
or breeding/show cats.
River Tam is her name.
* Even if the cat has an informal nickname, like River, this name is used
for breeding and showing.
of PixelPerfect (suffix) shows that she is
owned by PixelPerfect cattery.
* Names only include an of suffix if the word following of is
a registered cattery.
