If Pets (CATS) Had Thumbs Day and Blogging Cats Unite to Join the NUCAT Union!

Hi all it's Cody! Well, it's Cody DICTATING this post to my incompetent human Mom. Which leads me to the point of this blog post.



As many of you know, today happens to be If Pets Had Thumbs Day, (or, in MY world, and for purposes of this post, it is If CATS Had Thumbs Day!)

No one seems to know the exact origin of this day (no surprise there, just add it to the ever-growing list of mindless holidays which in reality mean nothing, but hey, they are FUN, right?) So, without further pussyfooting around, just exactly WHAT would THIS cat do if he had thumbs?

Well, the obvious of course:


  •  I could open my own bag of treats
  • I could open my own containers of food
  • I could turn the doorknob and escape to parts unknown
  • I could grab my annoying woofie brother with BOTH paws and hold that giant, furry head between those paws...and.....squeeeezeeee......oh! Please excuse me I got carried away!
  • I could take my OWN photos! They sure couldn't be any worse than Mom's!




  • I could text with the speed of light and not only that, I could pilfer Mom's iPhone and make all sorts of crank phone calls! Does anyone even still do that?
  • I could steal the keys to Mom and Dad's car and drive them around town, Mom drives a stick and I could shift that gear stick like there was no tomorrow!
  • I could brush my own teeth
  • I could play computer games the right way!!



Those are just a few things that I would do....but...I believe the MAIN thing I would do is COMPLETELY BAN MY MOM FROM WRITING ON THIS BLOG! It would be MINE, ALL MINE! I would be able to type to my heart's content, I could say what I want without fear of upsetting Mom. I would change all of the passwords on her social media accounts too!

There seem to be a number of kitties who are in agreement, so much so in fact, that my buddy Austin has taken matters into his own paws and has created NUCAT (A UNION FOR CATS!)
Click to visit Austin's blog!
Let me tell ya, I don't wear a collar, but if I did, you can bet your sweet tail my collar color would be BLUE ALL THE WAY BABY!!!!

Austin and many other cats, including myself, are up to our ears with the incompetence of our "Affiliate Typists", aka, humans, 2-leggers, Moms, Dads, whatever you wanna call them, and we are not going to take it anymore!!!

In Austins Words:

The time has come for cats to show
That we should not go with the flow.
We'll gather as one to tell the human,
That we are starting a CAT'S UNION!

We'll call it the N.U.C.A.T.
And all can join voluntarily.
All for one and one for all,
Let's fight the fight and stand up tall.

There you have it my furiends!!! Won't you join us in the fight to stand up for our rights against these hapless affiliate typists that CLAIM that they have our best interests at heart? If so, head on over to Austin's blog and grab your badge today!!!! If we all band together, and if we ONLY had thumbs, we would take over the world!!!!!!!!!!


 What do ya think kitties? Are you with Austin and the rest of us? 
Let's take back our blogs!!! Love, Cody

  2. I never looked at it that way! I just thought thumbs made it easier for humans to serve kitties.

  3. I've been waiting all day for this post! That's a lotta trouble you're going to get up to Cody, let's hope you never get those opposable thumbs, although I've love to see you driving around town with mom in the passenger seat!

    1. OMC you just made me laugh! Did you ever see that old British cooking show called "Two Fat Ladies?" My Mom used to LOVE it! She said we could ride around in a scooter type of a thing like they had, MOL! Love, Cody

  5. Avalon was able to turn doorknobs, open his own containers of food, steal keys, and open refridgerators WITHOUT thumbs, so there's still hope for you kitties to take over the world. Texting and typing can be learned :)

  6. Oh Cody!! BUDDY!! Thank you so much for joining and promoting this much-needed union of cats!! You are a star and of course a charter member!! Once we have established our most impawtant napping and nomming conditions, I believe we will overcome successfully the wannabe Affiliates weasly attempts at catipulation and control!! In fact one of our members has already brought a very impawtant issue to our attention, which we will be addressing shortly. Watch this space!! :) x0x

  7. As a proud charter member of Austin's N.U.C.A.T. union, I say POWER TO THE PAWS! Also, as you know, I already HAVE thumbs and I find them moderately useful but I still can't open doors, use a can opener or type that well so thumbs really aren't all they're cracked up to be!!!!

    Hugs, Sammy

    1. Woooo hooo Sammy!!! Well, I guess since humans have thumbs (and we all know how "useful" THEY are), you are probably on to something! Love, Cody

  15. Being in a union means more furriness in your job and your workplace. It means telling your human what decisions yous wants them to dos at work. It means more pets. And, of course, it means better treats and toys!!! NUCAT is the way to goes my feline furrends!
    THanks for such a wonderful post about NUCAT (and thumbs) Cody! Yous is the rockingest Man Cat me knows!

  19. The peeps already have thumbs...and if we did, we could enslave them to do *our* bidding and commands! MOL! Food in evfurry room, litter boxes emptied as soon as we put a paw into them...and well, a life of kingly/queenly/regal ease!!

    Stay safe and warm...and if you do go out and do any driving best let the peeps do it, ya don't wanna get blamed fur smashing the car on these icy roads...

  20. May I point out, Cody, that cats already rule the world? Well, they rule mine, anyhow! With thumbs, Chucky and Angel would probably flag down a passing taxi and find a nice place in Florida to live!

    1. Yes but as I told Glogirly, we could do it even better!! Oh while Chucky and Angel are hailing cabs, have them stop in Farmington Hills to pick up their Tabby furiend (ME!) I'll bring NOMS!!! Love, Cody

  30. If I had thumbs, I’d still make the peeps do everything cos I can. I want to lay back and pop open a nip beer and channel surf the tv. Yeah. I’d still make TW type my blog cos she works for ME. The Cat doesn’t work. And, if I had thumbs, I’d be in the money, honey.

  31. Cody, I do have thumbs...but I still can't get that can of stinky goodness opened! ~Ernie

  32. I like having the humans do all the work, but there are times those thumbs could come in handy. Proud member of NUCAT.
