Can Holiday: What If Cats & Dogs Had Opposable Thumbs Day – March 3

How to Celebrate

The idea behind “What If Cats & Dogs Had Opposable Thumbs Day” is for pet owners to ponder that question and think about what life would be like if this were the case.  There are two schools of thought on how to celebrate this holiday.  One way is to spend some time thinking about what your pet would do if it had opposable thumbs.  The other way, is to be thankful that they don’t have thumbs.  This realization will come to you after you celebrate the first way.

As insignificant as opposable thumbs may seem to you, if cats and dogs had them, there would be mass chaos.  They would be able to open doors, drive cars, open the fridge, open packages, even open beverage cans.  I’m sure you’ve seen the picture of the dogs playing poker.  That would just be the beginning.

To honor this day we are featuring the 1995 Monkey set of Pepsi cans from Mexico. If cats & dogs had opposable thumbs, they would be like monkeys. The monkeys on these cans are driving a jeep, lying in a hammock , playing guitar, and surfing… all while holding cans of Pepsi.

Happy What If Cats & Dogs Had Opposable Thumbs Day (3/3)!
