Cats Working reader Adele sent us a link (thank you!) to a great British commercial about milk that answers the question: What would cats do if we had thumbs?
I can add a few more:
1. Steal the remote.
We would watch Animal Planet 24/7. Cole tells me we have a Christmas morning tradition of watching Video Catnip while we play with our new toys and stuff ourselves with treats. Can’t wait!
2. Open cans.
3. Make a good fist.
The next time Adele (the cat) came after me, I’d deck her!
4. Strike matches.
No, I’m not a pyromaniac. Just sayin… in case we were ever lost in the woods and needed to start a campfire.
5. Replace our hunt-and-peck style with real touch-typing.
Hitting the spacebar is the only thing holding us back, although I would miss the hunting part, which is always fun.
6. Turn on faucets.
Our water bowls don’t replenish themselves, you know.
7. Hold a poop scoop.
On second thought, we shouldn’t take perfectly good jobs away from humans.
7. Write longhand.
Always useful for signing checks and things like the UPS guy’s log when he delivers packages we’re planning to surprise Karen with. (Giving cats Internet access the way she does comes with a certain degree of risk.)
I’m sure you guys can think of plenty of other uses, but I gotta run. Christmas preps are in progress and I don’t want to miss anything!
