If Pets Had Thumbs Day

There’s a really fun pet holiday coming up. March 3 is If Pets Had Thumbs Day! You may not think about your thumbs very much, but they really are quite amazing. In fact, as you may know, thumbs are what set humans apart, by allowing us to build, carry, and wield things. But what about Fido and Fluffy? What would your four-legged friend do if they suddenly grew thumbs? A local Ellicott City, MD vet offers a few educated guesses below.

Order Dinner. From Everywhere

If pets could order food, our credit cards and bank accounts may all take a significant hit. Fido would likely order triple bacon cheeseburgers from every restaurant within range, while Fluffy would probably send off for some delicious salmon.

Raid The Fridge

One of the first things on your furry buddy’s agenda would likely be to go through everything in your fridge and cupboards. Fluffy may also tear all the labels off your canned goods, just because that’s something cats would do.

Go For A Spin

Fido would immediately let himself out, and head for his favorite doggy park or trail. As for Fluffy? Well, if your kitty likes going outside, she’d probably follow suit. If not, she’d probably just lock the dog out and then curl up for a nap.

Ransack The Closets

Pets are very curious, and often like to investigate things. Your four-legged buddy may very well go through every drawer, cupboard, and cabinet in the house!

Empty All The Boxes

Fluffy’s box obsession is no secret. If you store things in cardboard boxes, your feline pal would likely dump all the contents out of all of them and immediately commandeer the boxes.

Cancel Veterinary Appointments

We love all of our furry patients, but we do understand that most of them would rather take a nap than visit us. If Fluffy and Fido gained the ability to text or email, our schedules would likely become suspiciously empty.

Online Shopping

Who knows what packages would turn up at your door if Fido and Fluffy could shop online? Cat furniture, toys, and comfy beds would of course be in the mix, but you may also suddenly find yourself with assorted back scratchers, kitchen gadgets, and random collectables.
