While I was checking the holiday list in google a few days ago; I came across with the craziest name of the holiday I had ever seen. “What If Cats & Dogs Had Opposable Thumbs Day.” Yes, it is real and funny too. A holiday that is both question and celebration. This wacky holiday is celebrated on March 3rd every year. On this day, all pet parent should think about what would happen if your pet has opposable thumb. This day is originated by Thomas Roy and his wife Ruth. Thomas Roy is an American film actor who was born in Philadelphia and raised in Pennsylvania. He moved to New York City to pursue his acting career. Roy and his wife has created approximately 80 special days including What If Cats & Dogs Had Opposable Thumbs Day. This holiday’s ritual is simple contemplation.

I like this picture of Thomas. The dog in this pic looks like my Steffy. Hehe!

You might have noticed that your Cats or Dogs are not only adorable but also they possess some extraordinary abilities. Nevertheless, our pets rely on us for so many things just because they don’t have opposable thumb. It is one of the reason why pets need us and we humans need them too. We are companions. So, in celebration of this day let us contemplate the things our pet will do if they had opposable thumbs. The things that arise in my mind are:


Social Networking:

As per the new trend, I think the first thing pets would do is to take selfies and post it on social networking sites, namely Meowbook or Woofbook and give thumbs up in every Boo or Mew posts on his/her wall.

Thumbs up:

My dog would give me thumbs up and a wink of an eye whenever I ask her “who’s awesome babe?” with a new mode of gratitude and pleasure.


Scoop the poop:

I just wish this comes true. Even if it comes true I know my dog would be like “I will get it later baby. If it bothers you then do it by yourself.” So, mean!


Open the door:

Think about it. You come home tired from your long, busy day and instead of your any other family member; you see your itty-bitty love opened the door for you with a big smile and wagging tail. Awww, isn’t it adorable?


Open the fridge or food containers:

I feel that this one is very important. We as a pet parent feed our pets as per the timetable scheduled for them by us. But what if they get hungry in between their feeding time. What if they get hungry at midnight? If they had an opposable thumbs, they won’t rely on us for food. They could probably open the refrigerator or the containers of their food by themselves and can eat whatever they want and whenever they want.


We know there is a lot of things that we think our pet would do if they had an opposable thumb. I have listed above 5 things that comes in my mind. So, let’s do some woof or meow things and celebrate this holiday. Please share your view in the comment below.

“Happy What If Cats & Dogs Had Opposable Thumbs Day!”
