When I was a kid we had some pet cats, and whenever they purrred my mom would say that their refrigerators were running, so up until i was about 10 I used to think cats had little refrigerators in their chests that would open up every time you would pet them.
One time when I was at school my cat got hit on the road and then when I got home my dad told me that he went looking for me and got lost and for alot of years I thought it was my fault.
when i waz litle i thought that instead of barkig dogs would just shout out the name of their breed eg. my next door neighbour had a jack russel that always confused me by shouting 'pug' 'pug'
i used to believe cats could talk and just held it in. i spent years as a child trying to get my cat says 'hi', whenever a cat meoowed in a low pitch i believed it was in pain and trying to say owww.
I heard a story about a little boy and his Dad out for an evening walk. They happened across a pair of dogs..`doing it'. The little boy asked the Dad what the dogs were doing and the Dad said they were making puppies! Later that night, the little boy woke up thirsty and went into his parents bedroom as they were `doing it'! The little boy asked, "Daddy what are you and Mama doing?" The Dad said "we are making you a baby brother". The little boy said, " Well, turn her over... I want a puppy!"
my dog died when i was five so my parents told me that they would get me a chocolate puppy(you know, a chocolate lab)and at the time i was eating a chocolate bunny because it was easter and i started to cry and said i didnt want a chocolate puppy i wanted a real one!
When I was younger I had a religion class that was about evil spirits being possesed in people's body, or maybe it was just something out of the bible. That night my cats were acting weird (as cats do quite frequently) so I asked my teacher if animals could be possesed too, he told me that it was "possible" so at that point I believed that my 2 cats were really demons and I was afriad to ever be alone in a room with them.
My mother told me that when a cats tail starts to wag, that the cat is angry and will pounce with all its cat's furry. I have since learned that all my mother wanted was a dog.
I have 4 younger brothers. When they would pick on me I would run to my Granny and tell on them. She would say to me, "Tattle Tale Tit! Your tongue shall be split, and every dog in town will get a little bit!" That scared the hell out of me! I didn't want dogs to eat my tongue, so I learned how to beat up my brothers.
siamese twins are joined together. remember the film the aristocats and the the two cats that sung "we are siamese if you please". i always used to wonder why they werent stuck together cos they were siamese twins!
I used to belive that if you picked a kitten up by the scruff than you would be its mom forever and it would never leave, AND it would go to school as well(if a human was its mom of course)
I now know better
I thought that the difference bewteen male and female dogs were their ears, male dogs had pointy ears and female dogs had ears that drooped to the side.
I used to think that on Christmas eve night, animals could really talk. Of course, i know now my mom only told me this to keep me in in bed, as she said " if you get up and see your pet on Christmas eve, they'll never be able to talk again, and this will make them really sad, because they can't talk to other pets ever again."
When i was younger we had a cat called Ginger and it died and we buried it. The next day, i saw a cat just like Ginger and i thought it was him and i believed it for a while but it turned out to be another cat......
Last March, we took in a stray black lab. She was very heavy and we had the suspicion she might be pregnant. My best friend was visiting one day and asked my father if how many nipples the dog had was how many puppies it was going to have. She, herself has two extra, and was afraid that she was going to have a "litter" of four. She was 18 at this time. She is now 19 and pregnant. Fortunately she knows she is only expecting one child.
My friend from brought her dog when she moved from Israel. It knows commands in Hebrew, so when we were in park, she told it to fetch, sit, and roll over and little boy whispered, "look, that lady speaks doggie!"
When I was younger, my mom told me if I rubbed the cat's fur the wrong way it wouldn't be able to see in the dark because of static electricity.
my grandma's dog was a golden retreiver and it would hump our legs when we were little and we thouhgt he was trying to hug us but our mom told us he was trying to climb up us to kiss us.
i always belived that my dogs were actually people inside a dog costume... so i wouldnt do anything bad around them... i wouldnt even change or go to the bathroom around them!!!
I was at my best friends house and her male dog sat in front of us and his wiener came out and I freeked out and was like, what was that??!! So we started poking at it with sticks. We thought her dogs winky waw a giant worm monster living in his stomach.
