What If Cats And Dogs Had Opposable Thumbs Day

Every March 3rd is observed as What if Cats and Dogs Had Opposable Thumbs Day. A holiday that ponders the question of what our furry friends would be like if they had the same thumbs as we did. Just imagine what they could do. They could open up doors, grab a plate of food out of your hand, or even give you a hearty paw shake.

Not only would life be completely different for them, but it would completely change the relationship they have with us. If that sounds like fun to ponder, then this holiday might just be the one that people may want to observe.

The History Of What If Cats And Dogs Had Opposable Thumbs Day

As most people will probably pretty quickly realize, this holiday is one that was invented by Wellcat.com website owners Ruth and Tom Roy. On their site, they have created almost a hundred different holidays, with many of them being silly, funny, or tongue-in-cheek.

This is just another one of those silly holidays that they’ve managed to create and have convinced all of us to celebrate. A holiday that’s fun, but nonetheless is very silly.
