Born on a Mountaintop

We haven't the foggiest notion how this came about, but the other day, Mom Julie started laughing over what I thought was nothing. Tinker was under this bench-type thing, watching the leaves come down and all she could see was his back and tail.

Now, I know we've probably had enough of the tock subject, so I knew it wasn't that..




Look closely, and what comes to mind?


Big and round with a tail attached?





 Of course! Fess Parker as Davy Crockett and his coon skin cap.

You could put Tinker on your head (your hair might get a little messed up, tho) and you'd get the same look, hehe

So, anyway, with a human around here who has nothing better to do than think up stuff, we salute our own king of the wild furrontier, Tinker.

Heard the temperature is going to drop over the weekend. As my wise old grandpaw Tom always said: "Never pass up an opportunity to cuddle."

The man was never cold a day in his life.

Cheers!

Hrumph! The lady with the yellow hair says the same thing about my backside, Tom. That I gots a raccoon tail. Well, lets's see her try to put me on her head!

Purrhaps you could all sing Tinker Crockett, Cat of the Wild Frontier!

That was an insult to Tinker. ;-)

Actually, that photo just makes our human want to snuggle up and give him a big smooch! (Er, not too close to the back end, of course.)

Mariodacat said...

haha - he would make a terrific hat!

FURKIDSMOM said...

Tamago said...

Hahahaha oh gosh, that's too funny!!
I didn't see it (2nd photo) is coming. Thank you for the good laugh! I'd love to put Tinker on my head :-)

Don't feel bad... when our momma saw the picture she thought...
"Tinker, Tocker, Soldier, Spy" (she watches way to much of the big yellow bird channel)

The Furries of Whisppy said...

Hahahaha! We're not sure if we want Tinker on our heads but it's quite a thought!

Sparkle said...

I would definitely not want to be on my human's head! And probably not Fess Parker's either. I am not wearing apparel.

Colehaus Cats said...

Ha! We've seen pictures of cats as hats. Tinker just might be the cuddliest hat of them all!

Mary said...

Indeed, Tinker would make one warm hat! :) Mom was clever to think of it, Tom! And i and my little brother loved to watch 'Daniel Boone' on TV afternoons after school. Though my brother had a coonskin cap, not i. I thought it was amazing that Daniel could throw an ax just perfectly and split that enormous tree! (Okay, i know, but i was really young then.) Hope you and mom Julie have an excellent weekend!

Julia Williams said...

Haha!! That really does look just like a coon cap! Probably not nearly as comfortable, though.

Be sure to come by my blog to read about the Cats in Boxes photo contest, and enter to win free cat food and treats! YUM!

Cat N' Hats works fur me! Have a happy weekend everyone!

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Tinker skin hat? He'd comb your hair with his claws as you wore him I bet!

Eileen said...

Mom says having Tinker on her head would likely end in disaster, but she likes the look.

We just doesn't get it! MOL

Fisher and Staff said...

Your mom has a wonderful sense of humor and is very clever. Very funny!

William said...

Tinker's a little big for a cap for me, but I think he'd fit nicely on Caroline's head! Ha ha ha ha!

Shaggy and Scout said...

HAHAHA!!!!
Exactly!
(No offense meant to you Tinker, of course because Shaggy has the same fiz-eek.)

*sings* Davey.... Davey Crocket, the King of the Wild Frontier..... if only I could get outside! ROFL!

sagechronicles said...

Tinker is the right color, but putting him on one's head might create a bit of havoc! It sure would around here!!

Katie Isabella said...

I believe mom will. Transport over, brother. Mom has a need for a hat.

Old Kitty said...

Beautiful Tinker looks good anywhere and on anyone! LOL!! Yay! take care

meowmeowmans said...

We'd rather wear Tinker on our heads than a coons kin cap! We think Tinker is much more handsome (and ALIVE, of course)! :)

Hugs!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Ha ha ha ha! That's ZACKLEE what Tinker looks like--Davy, Daaaaavy Crockett, King of the Wild Frontier!!

Good to see you, my Furiends XOXOXO
