Okay this is kinda two beleifs in one. When I was young, I used to watch "Tom and Jerry". My aunt had this cat and a hamster. I asked her where her hamster's tail was and she told me that he was being a bad little mouse and Santa Claus ran out of coal for him, so he put de-tailer in his chocolate. (I think she was making fun of me)So I took her cat and her hamster and put them in the same room, and was absolutely amazed when Tom caught Jerry. (the good thing was that my aunt caught Tom before he could eat Jerry, and I was punished)
When I was young, I had this golden retreiver, and every day I would go outside to play with her. When we would play, I'd pretend that I was her date to a formal dance and say, "may I have this dance?" She'd give me her paw, and then we'd dance. I seriously thought that my dog understood what I was saying, and was one excellent dancer.
When I was really little I thought if I mimicked my cat's meows well enough, that I would learn how to talk "cat".
When I was 5, I thought cats were spawned from moss, since moss was so soft. Made sense to me.
I used to be scared when seeing a mother dog biting the neck of her puppies, I thought she was eating them!!!!!! My mother told me this was not the case while i was in hospital getting a tetnis shot, i had tried to rescue the puppies!!!!!!!
i used to think that my puppy was a toy boat and almost drown him!
I used to believe when dogs bark and cat meow they are talking to each other
I used to and sometimes still think, that there was people inside my dogs. That since the begining of time people hid themselves in dog outfits, I was of-course never afraid to change in front of them because all my dogs were girls, then I got a boy dog. he ran away. This theory was destroyed when my dog had puppies.
One time our cat Buffy was up on our roof. I was only 4 and my brother and sister were 5 and 8. When we saw him we thought for sure he was stuck up there and couldn't get down. Our mom wasn't concerned when we told her but we were so worried we got a wagon out and layed some blankets in it. We lined this up underneath the garage and stood there yelling for Buffy to jump down. After 10 minutes of Buffy just siting there he casually strolled over to a tree next to the garage and climbed down it. We just kinda looked at each other and went "Oh".
When on holiday in Greece, I was sitting in a taverna with my family watching 2 dogs opposite getting very frisky. I said loudly to my parents: "Look, that dog's giving the other one a piggyback". Of course, that wasn't what they were doing at all . . . ;)
when i got my first puppy it was a boy when it got a bit older i was playing with it and notised it had a lump inbetween its back legs i thort it was like a cancer lump type thing so i told my mum and dad they just said the dog would b fine and i was upset when they diddent do anything about it but when i got older i realised it was his balls. LOL.
I thought that snakes were afraid of domestic cats. I came to believe this because I was irrationally afraid of snakes, so to placate me my mom told me two white lies: a) there are no poisonous snakes in Delaware & b) snakes are afraid of cats... so Ralph, our yellow tabby, would protect me if any showed up in Delaware.
Onw time i saw this dog and it had hair around its neck that looked like a mane,s o i told my neighbor who was younger than me that it was a lion and he ran inside crying, that ws like 6 years ago and when ever i think about it, i almost piss myself i laugh so hard
Until about age 11 i thought that "Hush Puppies" the shoes were made from real puppies!
when i was little i used to believe that if a dog licked you u would have to wash it off right away or you would get sick...dont ask why
As Hebrew speakers, me and my younger sister watched tv, in the age I knew English and she didn't. So in some place at the show, she asked me in what language the show is. when I told her it's in english, she said "yeah? so why the dog's barking in Hebrew?" :)
i thought that our cats were secret spies for my parents and i would never do anything bad around them.
I used to feed my cat a big dollop of chutney every morning...I thought he loved it because his bowl was clean when I got home from school..........that was, until my dad told me he'd been cleaning weird stuff outta the cats dish every day.....
For a long time, I thought that dogs were spayed and cats were neutered. The cat I had when I was little was always getting into fights and spraying in the house, which naturally annoyed my parents. So, they had him neutered, which they explained would cut down on this behavior, and make the spray less stinky. So, I thought neutered meant neutralized. Like, there was something was added to the cat that neutralized the smell of the spray, and made him neutral in fights. After all, my parents had explained that saying "Switzerland is neutral" meant they didn't get in fights with other countries. I'd heard the term "spayed" and knew that it was similar - since I knew that cats got neutered, I assumed that meant that dogs got spayed. After all, the phrase is "spay or neuter your pets" and there's two kinds of pets, dogs and cats. Having different words for different animals made more sense to me than different words for the genders of both.
Now that I think about it, "neuter" does have a lot in common with "neutral", duh, same root. The animal becomes of neutral gender. And it does result in an animal that is less aggressive.
I used to belive that my dog would kill me if I didn't feed it. (when I was 3)
