What If Cats And Dogs Had Opposable Thumbs Day is celebrated annually on March 3. What If Cats And Dogs Had Opposable Thumbs Day is for the parents to be grateful that their pets do not have the better grip to hold things. An opposable thumb allows you to cross your thumb over your palm and touch your fingers. This means you can grasp and keep things in your hands. With opposable thumbs, one can accomplish tasks such as writing and using tools. Most of the species do not have opposable digits. This day is celebrated as gratitude that we have an opposable thumb that distinguishes us from many other creatures.
“If a dog jumps into your lap, it is because he is fond of you; but if a cat does the same thing, it is because your lap is warmer.” – Alfred North Whitehead
History of What If Cats And Dogs Had Opposable Thumbs Day
What If Cats And Dogs Had Opposable Thumbs Day is assumed to be the imaginary invention of Thomas Roy. He has appeared in a movie with Brad Pitt and Bruce Willis, but that may not be his biggest claim to fame. He and his wife, Ruth have created more than 90 holidays. The Brad Pitt movie in which Roy played a street preacher was the 1995 time-travel thriller with 12 Monkeys. Roy had cats and dogs in his house for 45 years; it suddenly dawned on him that they’ve always been beholden to him for food. They run to the kitchen at the sound of the can opener, or even the lifting of the glass lid of the cheese dome. So one day he realized that he had to create a day that all pet owners would appreciate: how things could go very awry if these pets could get stuff out of the fridge, open cans, lift the cheese dome, open doors.
