Distinguished Merit Cats

Distinguished Merit “DM” is the most prestigious title awarded by the Cat Fanciers’ Association.  A female must produce 5 Grand Champions (GC) or Grand Premiers (GP) to receive the coveted title, and a male must produce 15. Nine of our females have earned the title DM, and Lynzkatz Red Baron holds the esteemed honor of being CFA's first red tabby male DM. To date, “Red” has produced 21 Grand Champions and Grand Premiers.
