The great RMIS Darth Silky of SITH (aka Silkbutt)

February 19 2007 - March 3 2010

Born at Mischief of Remis Rattery in Greenleaf Idaho, Silky was a black satin self dumbo, (with a few white toes) who carried mink, and possibly blue and Russian blue.  More importantly, he carried amazing sweetness and a lot of kissiness.  Silky, who was just a little ball (well actually a pretty good sized ball) of love and affection, followed me home from Rat-a-Rama 2007 in Boise Idaho.  I had barely walked through the door when Krislyn from Mischief of Remis Rattery put 12 week old Silky in my hands and said the magic words, "He is still available".  It probably helped that I already knew he was from one of my favorite SITH/ROUS lines, as well as one of my favorite CWR lines, and I do have a thing for black rats, but really, something just clicked between us and it was mutual love at first sight.

Who could resist this little face anyway?

Darth Silky quickly worked his way up to becoming
the Emperor of the whole evil SITH rat Empire.

And he was adept at concealing his evil nature!

Who me?

Behold my light saber like whisker array!

Silky was almost model like in his ability to strike different cute poses.

How cute is this one?

Silky also had many other talents

If you like lacey looking upholstery or well
ventilated clothing then he was your man!

Or if you needed kisses!

Or if there were butts to be kissed... even his own...

Silky, who was already a legend in the minds of many, especially his, was well on his way to becoming universally legendary... and he may get there yet!  Seriously, if you are one of the lucky few who can say, "I held the great Darth Silky," then you know that he was one of the best rat to human ambassadors of all time.  Luckily a little piece of him will live on in his son's and daughter's and their many descendants.

Silky won both the pet categories he entered at Rat-a-Rama 2008 in Boise Idaho, where he was chosen as "Kissiest", and amid fierce competition, was voted "Handsomest" ratty by a landslide!  At Ratstravaganza 2008, he won the only category he entered there, namely "Biggest". 

Silky would have cleaned up in the standards show too, if the incompetent judges could have seen past the cluster of white toes he had on each foot, and the lack of shine to his satin coat.  (I suspect it may have been the shampoo we used the night before that took the luster off his coat though, because he really was a pretty shiny guy.)  Undaunted, Silky always said, "Expect to see many more ribbons... even if I have to steal them!"

Oh no Silky!

Where did you get all those?

What's in a name?

 Silky started out as a member of the RMIS Zodiac litter, with the baby name Scorpio.  He was renamed Silky due to the amazing softness of his little satin butt... besides, I find it helps the evil SITH to reach their full evil potential when you give them a somewhat wussey name.
