cats and dogsShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
I used to belive that my dog would kill me if I didn't feed it. (when I was 3)
I used to believe that dogs ate cats.
I used to believe that dogs tongues were made of ham. I was never game enough to try it though since it's always covered in doggy slobber ;)
i used to believe that at night when everyone was asleep all the pets would go out and party with each other, like a disco was just for cats, and one was for dogs.
I used to believe if you pulled out a cat's whisker, the cat would die.
I used to think that when a cat purred it was their insides getting to work with pumping blood round and digesting food like when its whirring a fan round to make clogs work and that... dont ask:S
i used to believe that if you got barked at by a dog you would die in 45 days
When I was very little, we had a pomeranian and a cat. I used to think that if you put your finger in a dog or cat's ear, a little dog or cat's head would grow on the tip of your finger.
I used to think that my friend's dog was an alien, because it's eye's glowed at night. I asked my dad if "they" were going to take over the world. He said that they already had. I was scared for a while about it.
i used to think that when someone asked someone else if they were a dog person or a cat person they meant:
when u die will you become a cat or a dog?
I used to have a paranoid fear, that perhaps my cat, whom i kissed and cuddled and petted all the time, was infact a small midget cigar smoking gangster in a cat suit. I was scared i'd catch him 'un-zipping' himself when he thought no one was watching.
I used to believe that if you wanted to find out if a cat was a boy or a girl you would look under his chin and if there was a dark hair then it was a boy.
I used to believe that if you pulled on a cats tail it would come off like a lizards. Well I tryed it and my cat wasn't to happy!
I once asked my dad why Pugs had flat faces. He responded "because they ran into a wall"...
I used to believe (and still do, actually!) that animals could watch tv and understand what they were seeing. I had a rabbit that just sat near the screen, staring at it while the show was on, but would look away or do something else when the ads came on! My mother told me that I was just imagining this, but I have to question this, since my two dogs are acting in just the same way! They sit with me and watch tv (they love "Blues Clues" and most things on Animal Planet), and then start to yawn and stretch during most of the ads, except the dog food commercials of course!
Looking back at it, the belief that dogs eat cats is a pretty funny idea. I used to believe it myself.
I use to think cats were evil and would scratch you at night and bite you.
When I was 8 year old, I believed that when cats are very old they would transform themselves in to bats and after that they come back to bite me in my neck.
My sister told me many times that dogs are a shark's favourite food. I got to thinking after a while that it would be quite difficult for a shark to acquire a taste for dog, seeing as how dogs live on land and all. It kind of got a grip on me though because we had a lot of shark attacks in the ocean where we lived in the 60s. We would swim a lot through the long hot summers, and I always felt concern if a dog went in the water, and reassured myself that if a shark came then as long as I kept my eye on the dog I would have some warning to get out of the water. Not really a relaxing swim though.
We own this very tiny little book, it's Robert Munch's "Mud Puddle" but it's a very small copy. I thought it was a nice size for cats.
I spent a few months trying to teach my cat to read, as she always looked at the pages so intently. Then I decided my cat could read and stopped trying to teach her.
