Pedigrees?

Pedigrees?
Is it possible to have DBman create things like pedigrees from the entered data?

Let me elaborate a bit:
What I want to do is to enter information on a cat in the database, like name, breed and color. Then I want to have drop-down menus where I can select the father and the mother of the cat (which have already been entered in the database previously). When displaying the record, it shows the name, breed and color of both parents together with the cat's own record. And I would like a link at the bottom that takes the user to a complete four- or five-generation pedigree, which DBman constructs from the data it has on the cat, its parents, the parents' parents, and so on.

Since I don't know much about perl, I'd like to know if this kind of thing is possible at all without much programming, and if so, how it would work.
