cats and dogsShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
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.
Up until I was 12 i thought female dogs gave birth by throwing up the dogs and not threw the other side, i thought this because i dreamt it and thout it was true.
When i was little i used to have two dogs of the same breed, and i thought that they came out of factories like toys. o i asked my parents when they broke if we could go to the factory and buy more.
I used to belive that when a cat and dog had babies, the babies would be called Docas...i had a cat and a dog...
Where are the Docas???
I used to believe that dogcatchers were evil people who just drove around taking every dog they saw, stray or not. It scared me because I've always had dogs and I was afraid they'd get kidnapped. I think I got it from watching Garfield and Friends or something.
When I was 3 my dog had puppies and my dad told me that the puppies were fighting or one of her nipples because it had chocolate milk. I believed my dog had chocolate milk for about a year or 2 then I mentioned it and my mom laughed at me, and told me my dad was joking when he said that.
When I was little, my grandmother used to tell me that dog poo had glass in it & I would cut my foot if I ever stepped in it. It worked as I never stepped in dog poo. Grandma knew best!
When I was about 7 I found my cat in the basement, nursing baby kittens. The kittens were only about a day old, hairless and kinda scary looking to a 7 year old. I apparently had never wondered where baby kitties came from. I ran upstairs screaming to my mother that there were rats eating my cat. I guess I was a little naive, even for a 7 year old.
i'm 15 and i have an overactive imagination and i have made myself believe that my cat is someone that i know who is spying on me.but i don't know whi she really is. it really freaks me out.
when I was little, I believed that when I went to school, my pet cats went to a kitty school. so when i'd get home, i always asked them how their day was and what they learned.
I used to believe that one of my teachers morphed into my cat and spied on me at home. I was always scared to do anything while the cat was watching!
I used to be afraid to let our cat sleep in my bed with me, because my brother told me that cats suck out your souls through your nose while you are sleeping. I know, I was a deeply disturbed child.
When I was little our family dog was an English Sheepdog. English Sheepdogs have no tails. I asked my dad why our dog didn't have a tail. My father went into a long explanation about shepherds not wanting to be taxed for their working dogs that he explained to me again when I was older. The tax collectors would use the tails to tell where the dogs were in the flock of sheep, so the shepherds cut off the dog's tails so the tax collectors wouldn't know how many working dogs they had.
All I got out of the explanation at age 5 is Dad didn't want to pay taxes so we cut the dog's tail off. I thought my father was pretty cheap and wished he had paid to keep the tail.
When I was about 3 my cat, Rocky, died. He was about up to my waist when he died and untill about second grade I beleived that he was up to my waist, even as I grew, and I soon thought that he was the only house cat as big as a tiger. I believed this until my friend pointed out that he was up to a 3-year-old's waist, not a full grown person's waist.
When I was three years old my dad would refer to our dog Lacy as "Lace from space" beacause she liked the rhyme. As I started to grow up and started understanding the comcept of space I asked my dad if our dog was really from space. Enthusiastically he replied yes! With a puzzled look I glanced at the dog and walked off. Several days later she asked where in space does Lacy come from? My dad said the planet Venus. I then asked,"are all dogs are from Venus?" My dad replied "only crazy dogs that run around in circles when u crack an egg on a frying pan." Another puzzled look, but my dad knew for sure that Lacy went crazy when she heard an egg crack when it hit the frying pan. Then the next day, my dad was in the closet with me looking for my mittens when I noticed and pointed at an old face motorcycle helmet dads. "Is that Lacy's space helmet?" I asked. My dad said that my face was so serious that he could not hold back the laughter. If it were not for that weekness of my dads, the myth would have continued.
I asked my mom one day "mom, how do dogs have baby puppies?" well my mom told me since i was only 8 she told me that you put them in a room alone for a while and then later they have a puppy. I belived this until i was 11 almost!
