What if cats had opposable thumbs

This post is also available in : French German Italian

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 ?

    We agree that having opposable thumbs would be pawsome.
    Our Georgia has thumbs too.
    However, we do love the company of humans.
    They do give great scritches and belly rubs 😉

    I think we should keep the humans on anyway for all hte heavy duty work – I can’t open hte litter boxc and pour it into the pan – it’s just too heavy. And, and, and, and, and, well there must be other reasons but I just can’t think of them now. Oh someone has to shop for our food!

    it’s better to have no thumbs… humans mostly hurt their thumbs while maneuvering knives and sharp things… and that probably means they also should have none :ol))))

    WE kind of like that the humans do all the work for us, so we really don’t have to have thumbs. So we are fine without those thumbs.

    It’s true, even if we had thumbs, we’d probably keep our humans around. They’re good for love and scritches and other good stuff. 🙂 – Gracie and Zoe
