A designation before (prefix) or after (suffix) a name to more accurately identify an individual. (Prefixes: Mr., Mrs., Ms., Dr., Sister etc. Suffixes: M.C., Jr., President, Sales Manager, etc.).
An award earned by a cat that may be added to the cat's name according to the rules of a cat registering association. Depending on the particular title, it may be earned either by defeating other cats in one or more shows, earning some number of year-end points, or producing some number of offspring that earn titles themselves. Typically, a title is added to the beginning of the name of the cat, before the cattery name prefix, but some titles are added to the end of the cat's name. For example, in the name "CH Sheenah's Ashley of Ashmanor, DM" there are two titles. The title "CH" ( Champion) is at the beginning of the name. The title "DM" ( Distinguished Merit) is at the end of the name. See the List of Titles for more information.
A prefix or suffix of a name that more accurately identifies an individual. e.g. Mr. Mrs. Dr. or chairman, president, sales, manager.
