When I was about six I used to listen to my cat purr. I asked my parents what made her purr, but they didn't know, so I concluded that there was a tractor inside her that was turned on every time I petted her.
When I was about 6 years old, we visited a friend of my parents who had a Doberman Pinscher. I was terrified thinking that the dog was going to pinch me.
I used to belive weather could be unbearable for animals, dogs, cats, any type of animal. Like it can be for humans too. Like if we are hot we take of some clothes. And if were cold we put on clothes. Well i figured my cat was hot with all of his fur, so i shaved him, then i realized like us humans, if we want to put on stuff cats cant glue fur back on, thats when my mom came home and brought me to the ER, to evauluate me for animal cruelty.
When I was a kid, my dad told me the animal shelter was "kitty heaven." One day while riding in the car with my aunt, we passed the animal shelter. I proclamied, "that's were Muffin lives now." I of course was refering to my dead cat, my aunt just thought I was crazy!
I remember my aunt had two identically marked cats, Abadon and Adolph. I asked, what kind of a cat is Adolph. And she said he's a male cat. I asked about Abadon and she said she is Adolph's mother. I knew there were boys and men and fathers and girls and women and mothers, but didn't know there were males and females. So of course I heard "mail cat".
So I thought long and hard about how this cat could be a mail cat. I figured that's why she let him out in the morning because he had a lot to do during the day - delivering the mail, helping with the mail and such.
My four year old son has worked out that cats are female, dogs are male,and that when they get married, the babies are mice.
I believed if I let my dog lick my face and didn't wipe off the slobber, that I would turn into a dog myself.
My mum would always talk to our cats and ask them if they wanted food, then she would give them some and they'd eat it. I thought that when you were an adult you could actually understand animals and they would talk to you like the ones in movies.
When my cat was alone in my bedroom, I would close the door and lock it. Then I would gently approach her and say, "Okay, if you can talk, you know you can trust me. I won't tell anyone. I can keep a secret. Please, I know you can talk, so just talk to me!" Looking back on at now, I feel really stupid. I guess that's what happens when you watch movies like "The Aristocats" too much.
We have a dog named Bubba and when my daughter was 5 she asked me how come Bubba does'nt "shred" I said what Camrin? she said you know mom, why dooes'nt Bubba "shred" well it dawned on me what she meant, she really wanted to know How come Bubba does'nt SHED! I laughed so hard and corrected her and she said well Whatever mom! I still tease her about that today and shes 8.. she just rolls her eyes and says "Oh mom"...LOL
When I was little I thought it would be fun to let my cat go for a swim in the large puddle we had in our backyard.
A few minutes later I ran to my mom crying and all scratched up.
When I was little, a stray cat came to our house. I 'named' him 'Slimey' because that was the name of Oscar the Grouch's worm on Sesame Street, and I thought that was what you named all pets.
When I was little my cat died but I didn't know this. So I told everyone that she moved to California with her boyfriend, so they wouldn't be upset that she was gone.
I had watched an episode of some show, I think it was The Wonder Years, where they had to get a dog "fixed". Of course, being a family program they didn't say what "fixed" meant, and I didn't know what it was, except that on the show the dog kept barking all night before they got him "fixed" and then afterward he didn't. So, at my tender age, I thought that getting your dog "fixed" meant that the vet would make it so the dog couldn't bark any more by taking out its vocal chords or something. I believed this for a couple years, too.
When i was young i thought that dogs would eat cats...haha
when I was 1 my sister told me that these two guys luke and chris were dogs and I believed them and whenever they came around I would bark at them....lol
When I was a kid, I used to believe that cats were female and dogs were male.
I used to believe that cats had babies through their mouths. I heard my sister say her cats tongue must be so tired after having her kittens. I thought they must come through their mouths.
I used to believe that dogs shed their noses, much like a snake sheds it's skin Where I live they;re are trees that drop big seeds that look exactly like a dog's nose.
When I was about eight, my friends and I saw our neighbor's dog walking about while we walked home from school. We started calling to the dog when the owner told us not to touch it because the dog had rabies, and if it bit us, we'd have to get shots from a 3-foot-long needle in our stomachs. The dog was not ill, but I guess my neighbor just didn't want his dog getting swamped by a bunch of little kids. Nevertheless, I thought that if I touched a dog not on a leash, I would have to get a shot from a giant needle! I don't think I learned differently until I was about 12 or 13.
