Distinguished Merit (DM) for 2000

Cats that consistently produce outstanding offspring are recognized by the CFA with a "Distinguished Merit" title (DM), which is a major achievement in a cat's breeding career. For a female, it requires that 5 offspring have achieved the title of Gr. Ch. For a male, it requires that 15 offspring have achieved the title of Gr. Ch.
