I used to believe in the night my dog transformed in a wolf and ate the animals of my neighbourhood.
when i was little i used to pull my cats eyes open when he was asleep. i was fascinated at the thought that he rolled his eyes back in his head. my dad saw me do it one day and explained that cats have nictating membranes.
I'm sure just about everyone is familiar with the phrase "it's a dog eat dog world". Well, I had always heard this when I was younger in movies and on televsion, but I had heard it as: it's a doggy dog world. Please take into consideration the fact that I was fairly young. Obviously, when I heard this time and time again, it made no sense. I spent years trying to figure out what a doggy dog world was. It wasn't until they came out with a televison show called Dog Eat Dog that I finally realized my mistake-at 14 years old! That embarrassed me, but luckily I, myself, had never used this phrase in every day conversation. So, I finally understood the phrase Dog Eat Dog..it made much more sense than doggy dog! However, my family still doesn't let me forget it! My mother even custom made me a t-shirt with a picture of a black lab that says: "It's a Doggy Dog World"!
When my sister was 5, my mother gave each of us kids a Siamese kitten. Knowing that my sister was a) a potty-mouth and b) completely naive about pets, I managed to convince her that Siamese cats learned to say a few words as they grew up, and warned her never to swear around the kittens for fear they'd start doing it too.
I thought she would believe me for a week at most, but the kittens became cats before they ever heard a dirty word from her.
When I was around 4-5 years, I was looking out the window at our driveway, and I could have sworn that I saw a cat transform into a lion right before my eyes.
when i was about 4 i sat on my cat thinkin it was a baby lion i belived this until i was 6 or somthin......dumb!!
According to my mom, whenever I saw a stray dog in the street I would ask where its parents were.
My dad told me "Hush Puppie" shoes were made from Basset Hound ears.
I used to believe that dogs were the daddies in the family, cats were the mommies and cute little mice were the babies and youngsters. Used to imagine doggy dads with pipes reading the newspapers, mummy cats in aprons wielding a spatula and mice sitting around playing monopoly. :P
When I was about 4 or 5 and I saw my cat, Baby, taking a nap, I would stare at her and convince myself that she had died. I would then walk up to my "dead" cat and pet her on the head and whisper 'goodbye, Baby' without trying to tear up and stay strong. I would then rejoice and be in complete awe when she woke up. It took me a while to realize that Baby really was just sleeping and now that I'm 16 and still have the same cat, I sometimes pet her while she's sleeping just to make sure she's going to wake up.
When I was about 4-5 years old, I put some pussy willows behind the warm wood stove.
When my mom found them she asked why I put them there.
I said I beleived the pussy willows would hatch into kittens. I wanted one really bad.
My mom did get me one. A kitten that is
I used to believe that a cat burglar was a hamburger made out of cat meat. When I learned what a burglar was, I thought it meant someone who stole cats.
One of my favorite movies growing up was "The Cat From Outer-Space." I had an orange cat just like in the movie and used to believe that my cat was from outer-space too and could talk, but she just lost her special, alien collar in order to do so.
When I was 3-4 I thought when you reached the age 5 you turned into a dog because at the time we had two dogs and my cousin said they were my older brother and sister.
i had a friend that thought that you could baptize cats. IT DOESNT WORK VERY WELL
When I was little I used to sit with my cat for hours and try and perswaid it to talk to me, I was convinced it could talk but i thought it was shy.
I was 6 or 7 and we had this cat. My younger sister thought the whiskers were too long so she gave him a haircut but only on one side of his face before my dad saw her. Everynight After that he would bump into the wall on the side that she cut the whiskers.
I had a cat named Tarzan, and he always used to sit on top of our sofa. When I looked at him, his tail was swishing back and forth. I thought that his tail was alive, like a worm or something, and I thought that it was watching me, like a radar. But I was only 5!
I used to think that 'girl cats' were cats but with long green hair on their head, like in the style of a female person, except with metallic-green coloured hair.
I used to think that the 'cat walk' was something only cat's did. But only really special ones, like my cat, because he was so handsome and clever, and that at night he would parade up and down a runway(just like with actual cat walks) infront of all the other local cats as they looked on in awe.
