cats and dogsShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
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)
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.
