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!
I used to believe that dogs married cats and their babies were birds
i thought that i could milk my cat, barney.so when he felt me squeezing his niples and my parents saw i was reffered to a child physicalagist and still arent allowed any pet with niples
When I was a kid, I thought dogís tongues were made of bologna. I used to try to get hold of my dogís tongue to find out. I asked my Mom if dogís tongues were made of bologna. She said dogís tongues were not made of bologna. I didnít believe her until I was older.
When i was a kid, my lawn was all bumpy andi thought they were kittens under the grass so i used to avoid it at all cost.
The first time that our cat went into heat, she drove everyone in the house crazy with her crying. My little brother, who was about nine at the time, told one of his friends that she was crying because "there's a little baby wiggling around in her stomach and making her cry."
When i was little , i used to think that if a cat slept on your chest, it would suck all the air out of your lungs whilst you were asleep, and then you would die!!
when i was little i used to beleif that if a cat sneezed, then it would rain.
I used to believe that CAT_TAILS were really cat tails and when i saw a cat with no tail i would try to catch it and put its tail back on
when i was 4 i thought if i licked a cat ide become 1 then i woke up in the middle of the night saying i dont wana be a cat
My parents never wanted a dog, only cats so when I was little they told me that Dogs would bite you and cats wouldn't. We got the cat and one bit me. Imagine my surprise.
When I was little a friend told me that kittens come from a cat if you plant it in the ground, so I tried to plant our cat in the ground and the cat scratched me in the face really hard.
I remember listening to Cat Scratch Fever by Ted Nugent (or is it Nuget?), and there used to be a stray cat that roamed through our neighborhood, affectionately named, "The Black Cat." So my brother, four or five at the time, wanted to pet the cat (we have two cats still and we love cats in general), but my dad said that the cat would scratch him and he'd be all like, "ooghaghadklhfalkh!" *insert weird noises* and that a bus would come up with a bunch of people yelling the same thing and they'd throw you on and take you away. Terrified my brother, I'll tell you.
I stopped believing the bus story after my dad told me he made it up. It was pretty funny to watch him be the mad people though.
When I was about 7 years old, my dog humped my leg. I didn't know what he was doing, I thought it was just a little dance or something, so I'd let him do it whenever he wanted. Later, my sister told me what he was actually doing. I was horrified and couldn't sleep very well for a month. I was convinced that I was going to have puppies.
When I saw "The Lion King" when I was a kid, I noticed that when Mufasa died during the wildebeast stampede, his whiskars were bent. They weren't straight. I thought that if a cat or dog's whiskars were bent, they would die! After that, any time I played with a cat, I tried to bend it's whiskars!
