cats and dogs
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 think an Afghan hound was a breed of terrorist dog that had to fight in the Taliban!
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.
As a child I thought that cats and dogs couldn't get along like Tom and Jerry saw they didn't get along
When I was a child I thought that dogs can see ghosts but now I think that they can sense disaster
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 believe that cats came bad energy.
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 "mixed breeds" of dogs were made by two dogs being put in a blender
I used to believe that cat tails were at least 15 inches long and that normal cats with short tail were weird.
For some reason, when I was eight, I had the ludicrous idea that it was impolite to say, "Oh dear" within the vicinity of a cat because I thought it would make the cat sad.
I guess I thought cats were very sensitive and would mistakenly think you were saying, "Oh dear" about them or something.
I have always had cats, and as a kid, I thought the cat sitter was someone e who actually stayed at your house with the cat, like a babysitter.with kids, instead of just coming in to feed them once a day!
As a child I believed that cats, when they died, became owls and always accompanied you.
When I learnt that it was possible to be allergic to cats, I thought some cats were allergic to themselves. When I learnt that wasn't true, I thought it was impossible for a cat to have any allergies at all.
I read a story about a girl who loved butterflies, then she disappeared and it was implied that she turned into one.
My favourite animal was cats, and I was worried I was gonna turn into a cat.
I looked on a website about cats and it said that a female cat who wasn't nursing or pregnant was called a "molly" (one who was was a "queen").
So when somebody on Yahoo Answers was asking if molly could be smoked, I thought they were wondering if they could smoke a cat and wondered how that was possible.
I overheard my grandfather ask, "Who owns the media in New Zealand?" but I thought he was saying, "Amelia". Amelia is his cat, and we live in New Zealand, so I was like, "You do!".
