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.
My niece believes that their cat is part of the family because it has its name and their surname on its collar tag. When her daddy let his beard grow it was ginger and white, just like the cat. I think she's really convinced that the cat is her little brother.
when my older sister and i were little girls, we had a dog named Winky 'cause he had one eye. well, one day, we couldn't find him. so, to be the good sister she is, my sister told me that Winky had been flushed down the toilet. for a long time, i feared the potty.
When I was little I used to belive that dogs pooped out their tales...
When my sisters and I were younger we insisted on getting a dog. However the novelty soon wore off and we weren't prepared to walk it or look after it anymore (like many other children, I assume!). So one day upon returning home from school, the dog was missing. My Dad told us that "Major" (the dog) had been recruited by the army as it's mascot and was crrently in training at an army barracks, far away.......... Only a few years ago did he confess, he had actually given him away to a friend of his who lived in the countryside.
I used to believe that kittens and puppies could choose what color they wanted to be before they were born. So I figured all multi-colored cats and dogs simply didn't decide which color they really wanted to be fast enough before being born!
