cats and dogsShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
When my sister and I were 5 & 6 respectively, I told my sister that the dog doo in our front yard, bleached white from the sun, were dinosaur bones.
After telling her that, she would fill her pockets with sun bleached dog doo all the time. This went on for about a year. Our mom used to empty our pockets prior to doing the wash. I remember our mom always telling her to stop doing that. She would stop for awhile, then start collecting again.
My mom told me whiskers helped cats keep their balance when I asked what they were for. Due to this, I thought if I ever cut my cat's whiskers off or even accidentally plucked one out, they would go around bumping into stuff and be mad at me forever.
Yesterday, I was looking at this website for some animal shelter, for a roommate who was interested. Well, after a while, I got to looking at their available cats on the site. With some of the cats, next to where it told their gender, some of them said they were "altered" saying something like, "female (altered)" or "male (altered)" for their gender. Typically, altered means changed- right?? Well, I applied this logic to the word in this context, and thought for a moment that these cats had sex change operations! And that something like "female (altered)" meant that the cat WAS a female, but had her sex changed. I was thinking to myself, "but who would to such a thing to an animal??- that's terrible!" After a couple minutes, I realized that it only meant that the cat had been fixed... what an idiot...
If you cut or pluck a cats whiskers they could get sick or die.
When I was a kid I used to believe if you cleaned your dogs nose out and looked up inside of it you would see the devil. Some older boys told me this at the bus stop and I forever avoided looking at my dogs nose for fear of being scared to death.
When I was small, our BIG white male Pomeranian, Moosey, used to howl constantly when there were female dogs in heat in the neighborhood. Mom took him to the vet one day and when he came back he didn't howl anymore. She told me she had his voice taken out. I believed this until I was 13, despite the fact that he could still bark. By this time, the dog was dead, but I still firmly believed his voice had been taken out. In reality, he was simply neutered.
When i was about 4, my parents had a huger record-player with a tape deck built in. one day they caught me pressing "pause" when the cat walked over it. i thought it said "paws" and would protect it from the cat's feet.
When I was a kid i thought cats were cats and dogs were dogs. Their sex didn't enter into my calculations until later.
I used to believe that old rotten black banana skins were dogs lips!!
I had a cat when I was real young. After only a week it got worms. My cat and my sister's cat both relieved themselves on our concrete pad. Therefore for the longest time I believed that if a cat had worms, it pooped on concrete.
I used to believe that my mom choked my puppy!!! I used to have a dog that liked to jump around a lot and one day I went to the zoo with my nana-my mom tied up my dog and she cleaned out her car. I came back and my dad was burying my puppy!! I said" Mommy,you choked Twinkle!!(that was my dog)-but what really happened was Twinkle jumped around so much,that her collar choked her!!!
I used to believe that if a dog stuck their tongue in your mouth, you would get worms no matter what.
I was really little and we had a male dog laying on his back and my mom, my sister and I were petting his belly. This dog had uhh very prominent testicles and I pointed to them and asked what it was. My mom laughed hysterically and told me it was his butt. I believed her, but still wondered why his butt hung down like that.
when i was little, i was in the hurdles event in elementary school. one day i was outside with my mom and i jumped over the dog. my mom told me that the dog would shrink if i did, so from that day on i would jump backwards over the dog to keep it from shrinking.
when my lil brother was about 4 he thought that our dog goliath would turn into a girl dog and we could change his name my mom and i tried to explain to him that it woulnt happen and i dont think he really understood
I use to believe that I could understand what my cat was thinking/saying. So I translated for about 2 years.
When I was a child, I used to believe that the tongue the dog exhibit when they are exhausted (walking, running) was a ham slice.
you know how some people say great danes are as big as a pony? well i thought that great danes were half pony half dog. hehe
I used to think that all cats were female and all dogs were male.
I used to want to be a cat when i grew up and i thought it would really happen!
