Finally Friday for the Silky & Slender Crew

More members!
Maggie May, possibly the purrtiest calico around and most certainly the one with the longest legs, has joined the crew. It can't get any slender! Maggie has a taste for wrestling with her floofy brofur Maya and shares the birthday date with my own resident floofy. She's cool! And crazy! A big yay to Maggie May!
Alfie is incredible silky and slender too. He auments the greyness factor of the group again! I like Alfie's catitude and we share a biographical event: We both came to live at our forever home with an older sibling already awaiting us and had to endure their initial hissy fits. I think we both did very well and now our siblings adore us. Welcome on board, Alfie!
And now to something completely different: a first assingment. Crew member Fiona told me recently that she was ready for an assignment. Why not?!
Let us show the world that although we might be slender we have a mighty purr.

My purr goes out to all my furriends who are sick, recovering, who have lost a loved one or find themselves in any kind of other sad and stressful situation.

And in particular to the Sherwood Bunch who are going through a very hard time right now.

I dare the Silky & Slender members to show something purr-related and post a comment linking back to their post. Purr away, furriends! It's for the good of all!
Yours truly, Chilli

Two more worthy members!

I shall start practicing my purring immediately!

Cliff and Olivia said...

Such a great club. Now unto the making of the not-so-slender-club ;-)

peggy and The Cats said...

Luv the purr video. It's the best sound in the world. Jeannie is slender, but you can't tell because of her floofyness.

Forever Foster said...

Hello to the new members of the Silky and Slender Crew!:)

I will get my mum onto figuring out how to record my purr:)

milocat said...

What a LOUD purr. I will definitely take up the challenge!

Thank you for letting me be a member of the Silky and Slender crew - I luff having my own club that Milo can't join ('cos he's chunky!)
I love the pics of all the other members too. How many members are there now?

Love Alfie Marshall xx (proud member!)

Bruce said...

I am definitely not silky or slender, but I do appreciate the beauty of those who are! You have a fantastic blog & I will be coming back to visit often. Thanks for visiting me so that I could find you:)

Goldie, Shade and Banshee said...

What great new members!!! The group is getting very big! Wow!!! I will have to try and get the PM to make a video of me!

We missed you both!!!

Purrs Banshee

ps~ love the header shot!

Tom and Tama-Chan said...

We will have to try and catch Tama-Chan with Tommy as he is the only one she purrs for!

Sei-Chan was quite fascinated by the video, though! How old does she have to be to qualify for Silky & Slender?

The Creek Cats said...

Love the purring video!!!

Thanks for admitting Maggie May into your crew, Chilli! She will proudly display her badge on her very own blog!

Tuck said...

Welcome to the new members! I will ask Jen to try to get video. I don't purr very loud though...I'm a little shy...

Mishkat said...

Welcome to the beautiful Maggie May and the very handsome mancat Alfie! Franklin sends greetings and many (unrecorded) purrs.

Cory said...

Wow, Bennette has a challenge on her paws...we don't have a video camera. Maybe a picture of her not causing trouble, but looks like she's purring? We love that Maggie May has joined the club. Our Cecilia is silky and slender and calico as well, but as she gets older she's starting to get, you know, a bit of a bottom on her.

Alasandra said...

Welcome new members.

We will get to work on our assignment right away. ~Scylla & Charybdis

Skitto and Peanut said...

Hi Chilli, we are not slender at all, so we can'ts join yur clubs. But we likes being fwiends with you.

LizzyBean said...

Maggie May and Alfie are certainly two beautiful additions to your crew, Chilli! It is funny that you should post this today; just last night, Tiger told me of his secret ambition to join Chilli's crew. We took some "try out" shots & I will post them today for your perusal! Tiger has a pretty good purr, too, though it is nothing to GK's; his purr is so enthusiastic that he has to open his mouth to let all the sound out! Happy Friday!

quiltcat said...

ah what a lovely purr, Chilli! and what nice new members of your Silky and Slender crew!

Kaze, Latte, & Chase said...

Awesome! The more the merrier!

Angel said...

If we all purr as loud ans good as Fiona, the Sherwood bunch will hear us!.

The Island Cats said...

I think Alfie and Maggie May are great additions to the crew!

And as for that purring challenge...I'm gonna hafta work on my purr...I don't purr loud for some reason...now, Wally...that's another story! He's a regular purr machine! But he's not a crew member (he's silky but he has to work on the slender part..hehehe!)

Daisy said...

Maggie May is a beautiful addition to your crew! And Alfie is a real cutie, too.

Tristan and Crikey said...

Your new members are sure to have lots of fun in your club!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

You are lovely slender and slinky.

pughy said...

Fell in love with them all, especially those long legs.

Hugs GJ x

James is the big purrer in the household, but he's not silky and slender. Fiona's non-loud purring is mentioned here: http://gardenfaerie.blogspot.com/2009/04/mish-mash-monday.html.

Michelle said...

Ohmigosh, I had a cat named Maggie May! Love this post. My Emma is slender so she would fit right in. :)

Alasandra said...

We are not sure this is what you had in mind, but we meet some doggies that are trying to help another doggie named Baxter. We are purring for them. We posted about it here.
