Why not?  They are nouns after all.  I found four examples with a noun suffix:

HurDaq tu'HomI'raHvetlh yIlan 
Get that piece of junk out of here! (KCD)

nItlhejbogh petaQmey tInuD 
Look at these p'takhs at your side [sic] (PB)

jach veqlargh jatlh
    muqaD vay' 'ej ghe'tor 'el porgh
    nuqDaq ghaH petaQ'e'

petaQvam vIqopbej

   'ej 'oy' SIQ ghaH

Can I place on an epithet, noun suffixes ?
For example:

{vIghro'wIj tIQ tIch petaQvam}
this petaQ insulted my ancient cat

Is this correct ?
