What If Cats and Dogs Had Opposable Thumbs Day is a fun American holiday that makes you wonder what if animals had thumbs. Imagine how unusual it is to see a dog opening a can of food or a cat opening a door by turning a handle. The holiday is celebrated annually on March 3.
Have you ever thought that animals could be more like people? Yes, human language would have remained inaccessible to animals. However, what prevents the absence of big toes and the ability to walk on two paws? You are not alone in such fantastic musings.
The What If Cats and Dogs Had Opposable Thumbs Day celebration is made possible by Tom and Ruth Roy – they have created dozens of interesting celebrations to their credit. The idea for this day of reflection came to Tom by accident. One day he was opening a tin can. In the process, there were thoughts that animals were dependent on humans for food and even their own freedom. Having the thumbs pushed to the side would have solved the problem! Furry pets would be able to open their own food packages and move around the house by opening doors.
- Cats sweat through their paws. There are most of the sweat glands, which are activated by heat and stress.
- Dogs’ paws are mostly made up of fatty tissue. This keeps the animals from freezing when they are on the cold ground.
- Dogs have the resemblance of a thumb. Some breeds have a protruding claw to the side, which animals often use to grasp objects. So the probability of breeding a dog with a thumb is far from zero!
How to celebrate
Spend the holiday near your pet. Go for a walk, play. Think how his life and yours would be different if the animal had big toes on its paws or if it resembled a human in some other way.
Spread the word on social media. Ask other users if they would like to see the thumb in animals.
