A cat can earn the Distinguished Merit title in several different ways. For example, a cat may win the title if it has produced at least ten Grand Champions or five Distinguished Merit Cats. A female may receive this title if she has produced a litter of five Grand Champions or more. Regardless of the type of title earned, a cat that earns this distinction will likely be highly prized by cat owners.

The Distinguished Merit program was changed in the 1999-00 show season. There is no longer a $10 fee to claim the title. The DM title is awarded to cats that produce the required number of offspring and are tracked by a computer. To qualify for the Distinguished Merit title, a female or male cat must have produced five Grand Champions and at least 15 Grand Premiers. In order to earn a second title, offspring must produce five Grand Champions or more Grand Premiers.

This award is given to males that produce 15 Grand Champions or more, and to females that produce at least five Grand Champions. Breeders strive to achieve this status, and it is an indication that their breeding program is working.
