Today, it’s a special day again which celebrates this existential question :
What if cats had opposable thumbs ?
It would be great ! We could open our food cans and packagings without depending on our human (Zorro is quite excited just imagining it), we could open the faucet to drink, we could open the fridge, and we could send texts to all our pals.
Moreover, we already have a pal who has thumbs (but not opposable) : our friend Ernie from The Island Cats !
In this case, would it be judicious to forgo humans ?
No, of course ! They would continue to be very useful to empty our box, run errands, and be our private secretaries. And who would give us cuddles if they were not there any more ?
