This isn’t really my own belief per se, but something I recall from my childhood that was believed to be useful. When I was little, I noticed my mum had taken an empty carbonated drink bottle (unlabelled), filled it with at least 3/4 water & laid it down sideways on the soil of the flowerbed in our garden. I asked why she did that & she told me it was supposed to scare cats away, so they wouldn’t pee/poop in our garden (or at least that part of the garden). Apparently they’d see their reflection in the water & get spooked away? I don’t know, it sounded pretty dumb to me, but I never actually saw a cat react to it, so I still don’t know if it worked or not, LOL. My mum certainly believed in it, though & I think one of my aunts tried the same trick, so it must’ve been a thing back then (this would’ve been in the 1990’s). Sounds kinda silly, doesn’t it? 🤣

I used to think that if you had a pet with an unusual name (mine was a cat called Aspro lol), it meant that you would see a mental vision of what your future baby would be like, with how children and animals always get special love and care.

Because "transmogrify" has "mog" in it, I thought it meant "to swap cats".

I used to believe (sometimes still love to believe) that when Humans aren't around, animals speak real words, but decide not to speak in front of us to not freak us out. I would try to make a bond with my Dog that if she would say, "I love you" out loud, it would be our Little Secret.

I used to believe that my cat Rosita had 7 lives, when I was about 6 years old I told this to my friends in the garden and they really laughed a lot, it was very sad but now I know that this is not true, I really miss my cat.

When I was a child, I believed that cats and dogs could see ghosts at night. I thought that if a human put a scourge of animals in his eye we could also see ghosts.

I used to think that when female animals got pregnant, they sometimes didn't need a male partner (I was thinking of cats when I said out loud) and could somehow just make babies on their own. Well domestic cats are usually spayed or neutered anyway, but even so!

OK, so there's this book called The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe where a magical lion named Aslan is killed but comes back to life.

When I was a kid, I thought that the reason was because he had nine lives.

In my childhood I used to think that cats were mystical animals and luckily I often had cats as pets but they used to leave after a few months at that time I used to think that luck would also go away but I did not usually think that cats would return It was a lot of fun to have that kind of pet because they are so independent

I thought that the saying about cats having nine lives was literally true. I have a weird memory of going outside as a kid and seeing one of our cats choking on something. When I showed concern, my dad just said after he chokes to death he will come back to life and be good as new. I'm pretty sure he was really just choking up a hairball or something but I misheard it and, due to my belief, didn' think to question it.

I used to believe that cat tails were at least 15 inches long and that normal cats with short tail were weird.
