cats and dogsShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
When I was about 5, I asked my mom why her friend didn't have any kids. She told me that her friend had cats instead of children. I took that to mean that one could choose whether to give birth to humans or cats, and decided that I would have cats when I was older.
When I was little, I had a female cat and my best friend had a male cat. My cat had a tail and her's didn't. Therefore, I believed you could tell a female cat from a male by whether they had tails or not.
when i was a little girl, i thought that cats were females and dogs were males. i was always confused when watching Tom and Jerry!
I thought that all dogs were amle and all cats were female!!
my mom thought that dogs were boys and cats were girls and when they gave birth they would have kittens and puppies she did that till she was like 6yrs old (she never had pets)
My mom told me that cats had secret pockets... and I believed her. I would pet the cats until they got annoyed with me, feeling around for their pockets.
Cats are girls and dogs are boys
I always thought cats were all girls & dogs were all boys ... I have no idea why.
I used to believe that my cat was my little brother dressed up in a custume until one day I was sitting at the table and asked if my brother could have desert and was sad when my mother told me i didnt have a brother.
When I was a little girl I use to believe that animals were robots after seeing a commerical of a dog with a plastic leg.
I used to follow my cat around the house on all fours and meowing, thinking i would get my cat to like me more.
Up until.... oh, about my sophomore year in college I used to believe that Dachshund was pronounced "Dash hound" and that "Doxon" was just another name for Dash hounds.
I used to think that my dog had a camera hidden on top of his head, so his previous owners were always watching us.
I had my sister believing for years that I could communicate with cats in space. My ears used to ring all the time when I was kid. I would put my finger in my ear to stop it. My sister asked me why I did that and I told her I was receiving a communicatiion from the the leader of the space cats. She believed me for years.
Im 12, and no matter what i keep thinking dogs are like really smart, but wont showit, no matter how much rationalization(sp?) i have come down to 2 options:
1. Dogs are as smart as humans, but their vochal cordsaretn developed enough to make normal human speech
2. dogs have an ancient pact with themselves to never talk, and they are really good at upholding it.
^^see, i can think these things up, but i can rationalize that dogs just arent as smart as we are!!!! =\
when i was little, i used to think of all the long, curly haired/ tiny dogs as guys, and the big dogs as boys. It made seeing alotta dogs in public kinda akward
I used to believe that all cats were girls and all dogs were boys.
When I was about 10 we were visiting my uncle in Kentucky (from Illinois) and I fell in love with his angora cat. He said I could have it and we could take it home with us, but my dad told me it was against the law to take an animal across the state lines and we would get arrested by the FBI if we took the cat. So we didn't and I thought that was true for several years.
When I was 4 or 5 years old, I witnessed our cat, Petal, pooping live mice out of her rear end. I was sure that that was what was happening. I had seen cats in cartoons swallow mice live, it made sense to me that that was how they would come out, squirming and gooey from the trip through the cat. Later my Mom explained to me that Petal had had a litter of kittens! D'oh!
when i was little i used to think my dog was like a cow and produced milk when she had puppies and so i got a bucket and milked her and put the milk in a cup and drank it and spit it out i remember thinking this is the worst milk i ever ever had!!!!
