If Pets Had Thumbs Day

According to the internet, today is “If Pets Had Thumbs Day”! We brainstormed a list of the good, bad, and ugly that could happen if our pets were to have opposable thumbs.

The Good:

  • Help us tie our shoes
  • Your dog could throw the ball back at you
  • Hold your hand
  • Play board games with you
  • Carry their own poo bags
  • Write us a letter

The Bad:

  • Tie our shoelaces together
  • Cats could open their own canned food
  • Dogs could open boxes of treats
  • Open cabinets and drawers
  • Work the TV remote

The Ugly:

  • Unlock and open doors (and escape!)
  • Open the fridge
  • Turn knobs, such as faucets or oven
  • Start the car
  • Work a lighter
