Daisy the Curly Cat: If I Had Thumbs

I have examined my paw very closely and realized… I do not have thumbs! In fact, NONE of my paws have thumbs. This is quite an oversight because if I had thumbs, there are many awesome things I could do.

If Harley had thumbs, he could be a great artist instead of just a scribbler. He is a creative genius, but has no pen control.


You  might think I would use thumbs to get into the treat jar, but you would be wrong. I get many, many treats every day. No need to get them myself! I considered using them to take over the remote control for the TV so I could watch cartoons every day. Cartoons are nice!

Maybe Daisy would use the remote control if she had thumbs

But then it came to me… I would use my thumbs to become a card shark! This would give me a great advantage because no one would ever suspect a cat. See here, these cards are No Good.

This hand is no good!

Let me just dig through the deck…

I'll just make my own hand

I could perform a sleight-of-paw trick.  Nothing up my sleeve!

Ta-da! Well What do you know, I have a Royal Flush.  Read ’em and weep.

A full house!

  1. Actually, my Kiki (who looks a lot like you Daisy) has thumbs but not as much imagination as you.
    She uses them mostly to flick elastics (her favorite toys), and give us the thumbs up.

    I’ll bet I would be an expert at “Go Fish”!

  5. My cat Grady Lewis would turn on the water faucet. He’s all over the bathroom counter in the morning when I turn it on. I can hardly brush my teeth.

    Grady sounds like an awesome kitty!

  7. Hmmm, Thumbs would be fun! Then mes could open doors! Hissy old Licorice could open the inside doors with just his paws though.
