For the longest time I was sure my cat could read my mind.
My dad sold purebred hunting dogs. One customer came to buy one, and he was really impressed with my little mongrel dog. My dad said, “Mary, this man said he would give you $50 for your dog.”
I said, “Okay, but what does a dog want with money?”
When people said "cats have nine lives", I thought it meant when a cat did something that could kill them, they could come back to life (or "regenerate" like on "Doctor Who") and they could this eight more times before they finally died.
This was further fueled because it was often used in cartoons about cats.
I used to believe that the persons(expecially mens)that had too much hair in their bodies were half humans and half woves,like werewolves
When I was a child, I used to believe that the idiom "raining cats and dogs" meant that there were really animals falling from the sky, so I didn't understand when my parents told me that having a dog was too expensive !
I once thought that when cats curled up into a ball to fall asleep, that they were then "stuck" like that for at least a few minutes, which is why they had to stretch when they woke up. I also thought that when a cat was asleep curled up in this way, they looked just like Russian hats. I thought that since my cat was curled in a ball fast asleep, I had just enough time to put her on top of my head and turn her into a Russian hat. My cat put a quick stop to this notion by immediately running down my back with her claws out.
I had a dog (yellow lab named Luci) that was sick. The vet prescribed Prednizone for her. When I was told she needed this I was mortified because she had been spayed (traumatized me!!) and that no animal had been near her pregnant zone!! Imagine my embarrassment when everyone laughed hysterically at me. :(
I thought velvet fabric was made of cats' ears.
I used to think that Kittens and Cats were completely separate animals, by watching cartoons, I got the impression that Kittens were cute lovable creatures and Cats are viscous monsters. I always used to say "I want a Kitten, but I don't want a Cat".
I once watched a movie,, keep in mind I was little I watched a movie about cats and dogs so they called cats "pussycats" so I asked my mom that if their was such things as a pussydog!!? So embarrassing
I use to believe that cats and dogs were the same species; cats were girls and dogs were boys.
I thought lions and tigers were the same type of animal just that lions were always male and tigers were female.
When i was 8 I thought the expresion 'raining cats and dogs' was true.
until I was 12 I ran outside in the rain to see if it really was raining cats and dogs.
I would stand in the rain for about 15 minuets waiting for the cats and dogs to come down.
When I was young, I used to think that my dogs would wait until my whole family was asleep then unzip their animal costumes (on their bellies) and pop out to act like we do. I imagined them sitting properly in chairs and fetching cups from the cupboards. This would, of course, end as dawn was approaching and we were about to wake up. They would climb back into their pet costume and resume their place as our pets. Everytime they would roll onto their back for a scratch I would look for the zipper.
I used to believe that all dogs were boys, and all cats were girls, and that my cat would grow into a tiger eventually.
I once asked my mom when our cat would learn how to talk.
When I was a kid I thought that all dogs were boys and all cats were girls. When sex-ed came along I was super confused on how each species kept going.
My 3 year old son was sobbing his heart out one day. I asked him what was wrong. He said our dog, a male, was laying an egg and he didn't want puppies. He actually had vomited up knickers.
When I was about 9 we had a cat named Bob and we fed him Iams cat food. For the longest time I thought he was eating "Lambs".
my 10 year old granddaughter thought a fire hydrants sole purpose was for dogs to pee on. she called it a dog pee thing.
