Hi everyone, it’s Ruby! The other day, Mom left the computer on with YouTube up on the screen, so Allegra and I watched a bunch of silly cat videos that made us laugh. But when we watched the famous British Cravendale Milk commercial titled “If Cats Had Thumbs” (see below) it really got me thinking! The things I could do….
If I had thumbs, I would never have to wait for Mom to feed us – I could figure out how to open the refrigerator, get our raw food out, take the lid off the container, and Allegra and I would be set. (Yes, I would share with my big sister!). No waiting for Mom to mix everything up for us. No waiting for measly little portions. I would control how much we eat!
If I had thumbs, I could get the treat bag out of the cabinet whenever I wanted! That would be so cool!
If I had thumbs, I could get a better grip on my toys. I love batting my toys all over the house, but some of them, especially the little balls, are slippery little things. Just when I think I caught one, off it rolls again in another direction. There would be none of that with thumbs.
If I had thumbs, I could turn the tv on at night when I’m bored after Mom goes to bed. Ha! Wouldn’t that freak her out if she heard noise in the living room all of a sudden!
If I had thumbs, I could open the hall closet where Mom keeps all of our interactive toys. I don’t understand why she can’t just leave them out all the time.
If I had thumbs, I could buy all the treats and toys I want online. I watch Mom shop online, and it doesn’t look that hard. I’m pretty sure I could figure it out.
Oh, the things I could do if only I had those thumbs…
What would your kitties do if they had thumbs?
